Abba - Don't Shut Me Down
It's almost unbelievable to say, but Abba are back with brand new music, and it's safe to say that everyone is excited about it.

The song appears to be just what the new generation of Abba fans needs, with its message about moving on and being independent.
Ike Rhein - Just Like You
Ike Rhein's new single 'Just Like You' is a brilliant showcase of impressive vocals and addictive pop. The song is based in an acoustic guitar, but with its impressive production, it becomes a song full of ambiance.
When talking about the song, Rhein says "'Just Like You' is about how sometimes people only focus on nitpicking the little things that their significant other does that makes them upset, but their significant other could do just the same to them."
Charli XCX - Good Ones
Good Ones is the new synth-filled bop from Charli XCX. The song opens with a thumping bassline which maintains its impact throughout. The song feels timeless and shows Charli XCX's versatile vocals perfectly. It really is a song that you won't be able to listen to just once, as it packs such a punch in its short running time.
FERGUS - All I Dream
FERGUS'S new track 'All I Dream' is an anthem for a post-lockdown world as it embraces the feel of being back out and about after a long period of isolation. It's all about dreaming about the future and what could be and not taking what you have for granted. The delicate yet beautiful vocals give the song a great atmosphere and allows the listener to lose themselves in the song
Swae Lee ft Jhene Aiko - In The Dark
Fresh from the Shang Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings soundtrack we have a new hit song from Swae Lee featuring Jhene Aiko. Jhene's vocals throughout the track are silky smooth and perfectly complement the intense bass and lowkey rap from Swae Lee. If you have the chance, make sure you listen to the whole soundtrack as it really is a great compilation of songs.
stef - sicc
stef's new release 'sicc' is a fun song which takes on hook-up culture in an almost parody-like way. stef takes clear influences from the dark indie-pop that's popular right now, but makes it her own so she stands out amongst the crowd. The intense lyrics and instrumentals juxtapose her delicate voice in a way that makes 'sicc' an incredibly interesting listen.
