21:05 | Adult Jazz's debut album Gist Is (2014), released on the band's own label Spare Thought, is a voyage that's startling, mesmerising and magical from start to finish, taking a labyrinthian, fragmented pop-not-pop path, through breathtaking detours, incorporating songs within songs, but very light on its feet and as playful as it is cerebral.
"We don't see ourselves as having a sound, it's more aspects that we agree are within the scope of what we do," ventures singer and spokesperson Harry Burgess. "Something melodic and friendly, but with an uncommon character. We like that juxtaposition between, say, something my mother would like, and something she would find difficult!"
20:00 | London trio Flowers will release their debut album Do What You Want To, It's What You Should Do in September via Fortuna POP! (UK/EU) and Kanine Records (USA). Produced by Bernard Butler, the album captures the intensity of being young in fourteen deceptively simple pop songs that take their power from their brevity, elevated by Rachel Kenedy's extraordinary voice.
