As springtime turns to summer, the festival season is suddenly in full-bloom and tracks keep on dropping. Prepare for the scorching months with equally-hot new releases featured on We Are: The Guard’s Spotify and Soundcloud. It’s the perfect way to catch up on sweet new tunes with one simple click. Let us do the research for you. Just sit back and listen. Sounds like a great deal to me.

Music is a global affair. With Freya Ridings representing London, Al Bairre closing out their career in Cape Town, and Autograf producing wonderful jams in the Windy City, the New Artist Forecaster is loaded with relatively-unknown names that is heavy on musical credibility. Whether your taste is the raw and truthful rhymes of Jessie Reyez, the darkness of MXMS, or the enthusiastic synth-pop from Leicester’s own Leo Stannard, you are sure to find something to please your ears.
