Brian Fallon is back with his third solo offering, Enter Shikari return with their new "punk, electronic and orchestral" sound and Little Mix have dropped another huge anthem with Break Up Song.
Check out our round up of this week's freshest releases below.
Brian Fallon – Local Honey
Brian Fallon’s latest solo offering, Local Honey, is arguably his finest work to date. Following 2018’s Sleepwalkers, the New Jersey icon stays true to his musical roots and gives us a record that although only eight tracks long, is packed with autobiographical tales and signature vocals. Not ripping up the rule book, Local Honey is more “an act of sonic reupholstering, rather than an out-and-out reinvention” according to Kerrang – now comfortably (this is his third solo LP) away from his garage-rock roots with The Gaslight Anthem, Fallon is sounding more complete with every release.

Enter Shikari – T.I.N.A
T.I.N.A – aka There Is No Alternative – is the fantastic new single from Enter Shikari’s forthcoming LP, Nothing is True & Everything is Possible. The St Albans favourites have claimed their new sound to be “punk, electronic and orchestral” and quite frankly we cannot wait to hear more.
Bulging with synths and huge choruses, Enter Shikari are already one of the most exciting live bands in the world and this new dimension will only further that statement.

Little Mix – Break Up Song
Pop icons Little Mix are back with another huge anthem. Break Up song kicks off with glittering vocals from Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson before Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall join them for the chorus, where they declare “so tonight, I’ll sing another break up song, so turn it up, let it play on and on and on!”
Their knack for writing a massively catchy banger is unrivalled and Break Up Song is no different! We can’t wait to hear it live this summer.

Margaret Glaspy – Devotion
Back with sophomore LP, Devotion, Margaret Glaspy has “transformed her approach to arranging her songs” (Paste). Now packed with digital beats and electronic elegance, Glaspy has strayed from “the guitar-based indie-rock that characterised Emotions and Math in 2016.” Don’t think that Glaspy has completely discarded the sound we’ve all come to adore, though – in Stay With Me, we hear the New York creative return to “the indie-folk leanings that define Glaspy as a musician.”

The Chats – High Risk Behaviour
“Grinning and unruly, 'High Risk Behaviour' absolutely goes for the jugular” (NME) is probably the best way to describe Australian band The Chats. Their debut record is a 14 track onslaught of everything we’ve come to love from the intense rockers – having played several sold out shows around the world in the past year, we finally have material to enjoy at home and although not a single track breaks the three minute mark, we can gauge exactly what The Chats are all about with any one of the tracks from High Risk Behaviour.
