November is here and while it’s technically not Winter yet, it sure feels colder outside. With Christmas on the way and Bonfire Night been and gone, let’s see what great music you need to get into while you wait for the rain to stop.
Selfish Bodies-Bambi Legs
This track brings synth-wave-inspired production, gritty vocals, and a feeling of grandiosity. The song feels like it could have been out of a movie, showing this alternative pop-rock trio know how to capture a cinematic feel.

This project documents the mixture of feeling in perfect synergy and yet not being loved back by someone. It’s now the perfect time to get into Mauvey as he’s set to perform at The Social in London on the 8th of February.
Lyle Kam-blurry eyed
Through this body of work, Lyle Kam was able to get across his thoughts and feelings in order to find himself. Whether on the EDM tinged ‘isn’t it funny‘ or the city pop of ‘tokyo,’ Kam can express himself clearly.
