Nine “fresh n’ Green”, ultra tasty tunes to feed your music appetite. We are pretty confident, you don’t wanna miss those ones right?

Local Nomad – ‘Like a Child’

Local Nomad’s ‘Like a Child’ is superb indie pop single with an infectious chorus, and the best taster of what to expect from the upcoming EP ‘Stranger in My Hometown’.

About Local Nomad

Capturing Paul Simon’s 70s aesthetic and the pop sensibility of Gnarls Barkley – Local Nomad’s sound is marked by soulful vocals, ethereal synths, and lustrous drum beats. Michael Desmond AKA Local Nomad first hit the Long Island scene in 2009 as the frontman of the orchestral indie rock band, Gabriel the Marine. The band garnered regional attention and went on to perform nationwide with bands like Taking Back Sunday, Glassjaw, Mew, Jacks Mannequin, and The Dear Hunter.

Nearly a decade later the Long Island native has polished his sound in his solo venture as Local Nomad. Desmond returns as a blue-eyed soul dipped crooner, whose narrative lyrics yield songs that embrace traditional folk music while inviting elements of the future.

Drawing influence from everything Tears for Fears, Elvis Costello to Phil Collins, his upcoming self titled EP ‘LOCAL NOMAD’ will reflect on lost love, baseball, death and the hardships of aging. Desmond is a dad rock powerhouse who shakes hands with pop—with two fingers crossed behind the back—breaking a promise to adhere to the mainstream of the genre, fusing it with delivery of indie-rock electricity.

Junes UB – ‘Westside’

‘Westside’ is a melodious, hard-hitting, trap/contemporary r&b hybrid taken from Junes UB’s latest 4-track EP ‘Sni-Relevant’… Flawless & utterly addictive!

About Junes UB

West London’s burgeoning Trap scene is all the rage this year and Junes UB is one of the acts making that happen. His trappy, American inspired uptempo beats paired up with his jaunty, deep-voiced UK rap flow create a sound that’s special to the UK scene. June’s versatility over a wide range of instrumental types doesn’t go unnoticed either.

His upbringing in a reggae and soul surrounded environment contributes to his musicality, having been raised listening to reggae greats like Bob Marley and Gregory Isaac. ‘My mum listened to a lot of R&B and soul music too, so naturally, I gravitated towards listening to it myself’. Artists like India Arie, Erykah Badu and Peter Tosh would be played on full blast and that’s where my love or music really started’.

‘As I got older and developed own music taste and began to grow fond of American music’. Having quoted acts like Lil Durk and Chief Keef as favourite artists, the inspiration from American trap and drill becomes clearly prevalent in his music. ‘I never really listened to UK music till I got older, but that’s when I started to appreciate it more for what it was’ and this appreciation is clearly upheld in the music he creates.

Having started rapping at the age of fourteen, years of honing, crafting and curating his sound has paid off to give us the authentic ‘June UB’ sound we listen to and love.

With the UK trap scene growing each day, June UB is an artist to keep an eye on this year. Expect more releases, collaborations and a few more special appearances.
