Here's a brand new track by east London musician K H U S H I, set to be the lead track on the singer/songwriter's forthcoming debut EP.
Phantoms is a slow-burning, wistful pop song packed with lush vocal harmonies and delicate keyboard lines, which builds up masterfully to a driving, rhythmic crescendo.
K H U S H I enlisted the in-demand talents of Alt-J's producer Charlie Andrews to record the track, which suggests his short musical career is very much on an upwards trajectory.
Only Girl, aka Ellen Murphy, is a London-based singer with a dreamy, distinctly 90s R&B sound.
This track called Mountain combines simple, sparse percussion with lush, soaring vocal harmonies. Comparisons with fellow south-Londoner Jessie Ware immediately spring to mind, which suggests commercial success could be just around the corner for Only Girl.
Here's the latest single taken from New York indie-rockers Giga Herbs' debut album Mad Weird LP. Solaris starts off much more stripped-down than previous tracks we've featured by the band, but it doesn't take long for a nice dose of fuzzy, distorted guitar to kick in.
It's good to know there are still bands out there who know how to make a great-sounding guitar-based pop record.
Jungle have toned down the intensity of MØ's original track here, sacrificing the singer's raw energy in favour of a mellow-but-funky groove.
It's not exactly Miami Vice, but something about the track's synthy 80s sounds just felt right for cruising around in Miami's December sun.
UK singer-songwriter Sivu, aka James Page, seems to have spent most of 2013 on the verge hitting the big time and is surely set to explode in 2014. Working with in-demand producer Charlie Andrew, the man behind Alt-J's critically acclaimed debut album An Awesome Wave, should certainly help.
It features Sivu's typically ethereal vocals, with a guest appearance from singer Marika Hackman, all accompanied by a melancholy blend of pianos, guitars and a dark underlying electronic bass.
UK artist Blak Nite, as his name suggests, specialises in exploring dark and murky sonic territories, creating music that, in his own words, sounds "as if it was found in a ditch or gutter or down a back alley."
Shake, which is taken from Blak Nite's Shadow Party EP, is built around a deep, rumbling bass from which fragments of vocal samples sporadically emerge.
