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!
Radegunds “Catch The Crazy”. Released June 02nd.
Radegunds were formed by songwriting duo, brothers Joe and Will Vallely, originally from the great musical city of Manchester. At the start of the pandemic, while others were stockpiling household essentials, the two brothers stockpiled dozens of riffs and song skeletons. Drafting in friends Tim and Callum on bass and drums, the four shaped these musical ideas together.

Radegunds’ initial demos were first played by Tim Willet on Cambridge 105 Radio and entered the New Music Generator Hall of Fame after staying on the NMG chart for the maximum duration of 20 consecutive weeks.
DAMIEN “Hurts”. Released June 02nd

‘Sometimes love lasts years, sometimes only hours. But no matter how long it lasts, when it’s gone, it hurts’. –DAMIEN
Lucie Glang “Coffee”. Released June 02nd
While its vibe is hopeful and uplifting, “Coffee” touches on the struggle with anxiety and panic that can keep us up at night, and showcases the power of small gestures of comfort, like a cup of coffee or tea brought to us in bed, that can offer solace.
ORDER NOW “COFFEE” ON BANDCAMP
‘ “Coffee” feels like a comforting shoulder and a warm hug after a rough day. Like waking up in Italy with the sun in your face after crying before falling asleep. I felt a little out of balance for sometime and tried to put my mind at ease and reduce my thoughts to something simple and yet meaningful. And to be honest, I also just really love a good cup of coffee with oat milk,Lucie Glang
probably my favourite meal of the day. 🌻’

ndge “Why Would I Notice U”. Released May 19th.
This second single release from upcoming artist ndge is sure to cause some ripples in the music world. Most acts want to sound like someone else to please the algorithms; Not ndge! ndge wants to not just rock the boat – But tip the boat over! It is anathema for ndge to sound or look like anybody else. he/they is on a mission – To make original and individual Electro Pop / Alt Pop music or die trying!

“ndge believes releasing a new single should be a celebrated and landmark event, like it was in the vinyl days. That’s why ndge only release a song every three months. They aren’t trying to satisfy an algorithm – They want to satisfy their fans!”
