We’re delighted to present you with the latest edition of our annual compilation album, celebrating our 17th birthday! As ever, we’ve hand-picked a mixture of artists – from new faces to veterans alike – that we feel have had an amazing twelve months. Head over to our Bandcamp page to listen and download the tracks for free.

A hypnotic piano phrase drenched in melancholy creeps in and eerily builds into a tense and desperate atmosphere. Suddenly, Hypophora drops into a larger than life guitar-laden affair, where singer-songwriter Eve Cole can really show off her abilities. At first dragging her words from the ground up, Cole soon elevates them to the clouds with a flurry of vocal trills that make for a truly catchy and heartbreaking chorus.

She states the track is “inspired by the complexities of negativity and superiority in relationships”, and both singer and band perfectly encapsulate that feeling of dread and longing within a toxic pairing. It’s hardly surprising that Cole is one to watch for 2023.
