Hey, this is your round-up for #LT1KF, Unknown But Essentials! or UBS, and this time I have for you these five acts that you should check out right away!

OLIVER PINDER “late July”. Released March 31st, 2023

This track follows his acclaimed releases ‘Stressed’ and ‘beautiful second’. With catchy vocal lines, electric guitar-driven, and production that comes infused with personality, ‘late July’ offers the perfect soundtrack for a summer road trip.

“I’m so chuffed this track is finally out, I wrote it about falling in-love and the fear that comes with it. The fear of making the first move, saying I love you, fear of messing it up. It’s a dead scary time to live in. This song is so fun to play live, it feels really playful both in atmosphere and lyrically.”

MAY PAYNE “Take It Too”. Released April 07th, 2023

With 150k+ streams and a devoted online fanbase of 40k+ followers, 21 yearold Manchester-based singer-songwriter May Payne bares her heart in her next single.

“Take It Too started as an act of self-therapy, not for public consumption. In writing the song I realised that the situation-ship I was in was toxic, the song ended up as a desperate plea, begging someone to stay with me and promising to ignore all they do to hurt me.”
