There's something deeply nostalgic and elegant about Chris Cookson's debut solo track 'Pillow Talk' - qualities that we don't usually associate with new artists, yet ones which work perfectly for Cookson. He's also just come under the wing of Laissez Faire Club, who have worked with plenty of strong acts in the past few years. Which bodes well, one would say. Judge for yourself below.

Canadian electro twosome Purity Ring made an unexpected yet welcome return last week, with new single 'Push Pull' - and quite frankly, we haven't heard enough good things said about it. So here we are. The newest effort is their most "pop" track to date, while sparkling with the same vibrant and off-kilter energy that characterised their initial success.

We last caught up with HATS under their previous moniker of John And Garry, the sibling duo from Ayrshire. The Kerr brothers seem to have moved slightly further south now, to sunny Manchester, while still retaining the emotive spirit that saw me originally compare the band to Idlewild and Biffy Clyro. Even on their latest track, a cover of Wretch 32's new single '6 Words'.

An 'Endless Nightmare' opens the debut EP from Aussie duo Casper Cult but an endless nightmare, their music is not. Instead, Dylan Hill and Alisha Lindell opt for something dreamier and electronic-based - a move which pays dividends, as you can hear by streaming the 'Domesticated' EP below.

British duo Gold Spectacles have been on our radar for a while, but as we have a bit of a thing against "mystery" bands, we've held off posting until they'd delivered something that truly wowed us. And with the laidback yet layered 'Lately', they've done just that. Download for free via the widget below.
