We've been eagerly anticipating Kelsie Hogue's debut album as US queer pop hero Sir Babygirl for a lil while now, which will be dropping mid-Feb on Father/Daughter Records. Following the likes of 'Flirting With Her' and 'Heels', Sir Babygirl leans further into synthpop (with an emphasis on the pop) on new track 'Everyone Is A Bad Friend', and we're feeling it. A lot.

Despite sounding like a comeback show for famous gunger/childhood hero Dave Benson Phillips, Glasgow's SLIME CITY are in fact a troupe of musicians. Each called Michael, a name policy which would otherwise seem like a troubling barrier for entry for starting a new band, but fortunately, these Michaels know one another from their previous iteration, We Are The Physics. Listen to the debut material in their latest form below.

Late noughties outfits Dananananaykroyd and Operator Please may not have had all that much in common aside from some serious blog love, but now they've come together (in a sense) as Bossy Love. Combining John Baillie Junior and Amandah Wilkinson from the former and latter outfits respectively, the duo of Bossy Love isn't quite Blu Cantrell and Sean Paul (but who could be?!) yet their own twist on 2003 UK #1 single 'Breathe' is fire.

We've heard a bit about Hannah Butcher's Déyyess project and having caught her first show with a live band at The Lexington in North London this week, we're feeling fully primed to tell you about your next pop fave. Emerging a couple of years back but with a relatively quiet subsequent period, she's been snapped up by new music mogul Jen Long's label Kissability to release the debut Déyyess single, 'Escher Heart'.
