#IMDiscovers: The September Roundup (Part 2)

With the cold winter months upon us, it’s time to delve into some Autumn bangers. These latest hits will be soundtracking your autumn walks or keeping you company while you stay indoors.

Manny Alexandra-Who’s Got Your Focus?

This may be a debut single, but Manny Alexandra is sure to make an immediate impression. The smooth vocals and acoustic production are sure to soundtrack a frosty evening, as you long for warmer times and memories, like the artist in question. The influence of Jazz and Neo-Soul over this R’n’B sound is sure to get people on board, eagerly anticipating the next release.

Chloe Collins-Devil I Know

Nashville has been the home to many a talented singer-songwriter and Chloe Collins is another name to add to that list. ‘Devil I Know‘ is an atmospheric ballad, complimented nicely by a raspy delivery from Collins. You can already see this being used on Film or T.V., which will take this artist to another level of their career.

Lyle Kam-what if i had told you

An emotional ballad can show off an artist’s vocal chops, and ‘what if i had told you‘ certainly does that. Lyle Kam’s breathy, yet vulnerable delivery is the perfect tool to express his emotions of heartbreak, over the piano production. This is yet another flavour of this singer in 2022, with a new EP to come on October 14th.

Layfullstop-Act Right

While summer is over, we’ve still had some reminders of brighter days and this includes the latest jam from Layfullstop. With a breezy beat and a chilled delivery, this leaves you feeling good while delivering some class lyricism. This Manchester-based artist knows how to SANG as well, showing she’s a multifaceted talent you need to add to your playlist.

Ruby Waters-Open Arms

Another acoustic song to get you through those long walks, ‘Open Arms‘ takes you to the great outdoors. The soulful vocals are crisp and the background choir vocals are a nice touch, as the track focuses on taking on life’s challenges. With a wavy visualiser to match the vibe. Ruby Waters knows how to create the perfect Autumn song, getting you through those seasonal blues.

King Kuda-Velvet Sun

You can’t beat a bit of indie-rock, especially during festival season, and King Kuda certainly brings that as the season draws to a close. ‘Velvet Sun‘ is so calming with the mellow guitar playing and relaxing vocals of the lead singer. If you love a bit of Bombay Bicycle Club, then this Reading 5-piece is right down your street.


Khamari knows how to take you back in time with the 90’s Boom-Bap production of ‘Drifting.’ This widely talented artist from L.A. has received comparison with Frank Ocean, but he stands out on his own merits. The expressiveness in his music is undeniable and we have R’n’B’s next biggest star right here.

Nikhil Beats-Feel Me

When an artist releases their first solo effort without features, it can be daunting. Nikhil Beats has no such worries on ‘Feel Me,’ as the jazzy production and scattered vocal delivery have already earned him attention from BBC Introducing. With a new EP out on October 12th, the cheering in the song will be taking place in many of his fans’ households.

Nova Rose-Still Thinking of You

Nova Rose combines a catchy melody and breathy vocals, to create this great bit of pop-rock called ‘Still Thinking of You.’ The Montreal singer/songwriter takes the topic of moving on from toxicity and hooks you in with the music. The track will certainly be of use to those going through these feelings, indicating you can take those hard times and make something positive.


In this age where people are learning to love themselves, we need songs like ‘Exposed‘ by Neela. The song documents her journey of learning to accept the insecurities she feels and accept herself the way her partner has. It’s a raw and honest tale, that is relatable and backed up by the straight-to-the-point lyricism.
