New In: January 2023

A new year, a new month. Bringing you a breakdown of some of our new and favourite releases from some incredible artists this month. From indie bangers to addictive pop tracks, here is some music motivation to get you through this January. 

JAWNY – True 

Back with another indie-pop hit, JAWNY kicked off the year with the release of his brand new single, True. Light and playful, the track is filled with rhythmic percussive beats and slick guitar lines that are utterly intoxicating and irresistible. However, despite the jaunty and up-tempo undertones of the track; in his signature vocal style, JAWNY sings a tale of the ups and downs of love and the biter-sweetness of still having feelings for someone you’re trying to get over. And alongside the release, JAWNY also dropped a stunning new music video for the track that gives off immersive retro, cinematic vibes. 

Rhys Lewis – To Be Alive

With a highly anticipated year ahead, singer-songwriter Rhys Lewis has no doubt started as he means to go on, with the release of his first single of the year, To Be Alive; rapidly followed up by the release of his brand-new album, Corner Of The SkyAn emotive and delicate indie-pop track To Be Alive brings you into its stunning sonic world, filled with bright synths, bold vocals, and a driving energy, that is not to be missed. And accompanied by a brand-new music video, the cinematic visuals see the talented artist face his biggest fear – heights – as we watch him drop 15,000 feet from an aeroplane as he takes the plunge and skydives. 

Amber Run – The Beautiful Victorious

Natalie Shay – The Edge
