Glued to your TV yesterday? We can't blame you. With the Wimbledon final, the announcement of the thirteenth Doctor and the season premiere of Game of Thrones, it was a massive day for telly.

The weekend also brought us a wave of great new music, and as always we've compiled some of the best of the bunch below.

Feast your ears while your eyes earn a well deserved break.  

TRASH - 81

On this gorgeous slice of indie pop from the Chesterfield four-piece, there's an air of melancholic nostalgia. This one comes with a simple but effective message: you won't be around forever, so get out there and try and make some memories while you can. 

Billie Eilish - COPYCAT

At just fifteen years old Billie Eilish is already being hailed as one of the most promising new pop artists about. Her new track 'COPYCAT' more than lives up to that hype: it's dark, stylish and brilliantly showcases her soft but powerfully hypnotic voice.

Suzi Wu - Teenage Witch

"Ashes to ashes / dust to dust / the guys are fuckboys / girls are sluts." The opening lines of Suzi Wu's debut single don't mess around. The London newcomer's flippant lyricism further adds to the charm of her lo-fi pop sound, making her another one to watch for this year. 

Mount Kimbie - Blue Train Lines

Their third effort to feature King Krule, Mount Kimbie's 'Blue Train Lines' blends the gritty and howling vocals of the former with the moody, pulsing synth work of the latter to create something quite magical. Where before the duo were known for their hazy dubstep, here they've moved into darker, almost post-punk territory, and it suits them wonderfully. 

Swimming Girls - 2 Kids 

If Lorde's latest album Melodrama has left you starving for more late night pop anthems, Swimming Girls are the band for you. Their new track '2 Kids' is a brooding reflection on a relationship that's tearing at the seams, one that you can either have a dance or cry to depending on your mood. 

Manchester Orchestra - The Moth 

The third single from their upcoming record is so alive you can almost feel its heartbeat pumping through every chord. Rousing, emotional and arguably their most mature effort yet, 'The Moth' more than proves the lasting power of the Atlanta outfit. 

Kllo - Virtue 

'Virtue' is a delicious piece of glitchy electronica from the Melbourne-based Kllo, taken from their upcoming album Backwater. With a slick garage house beat and lush vocal work, it's one made for those sweaty, intimate nights at the club. 

Francobollo - Future Lover

Taken from their new album Long Live Life, 'Future Lover' may not be an official single but it certainly has the power of one. It's a playful indie rock gem with a wonderfully catchy riff that begins in slacker terrority but eventually crashes into a surprisingly emotional finale. 

Tom Grennan - Found What I've Been Looking For

Tom Grennan is a name that's quickly gaining hype, and new track 'Found What I've Been Looking For' proves his merit. With a soulful production that still manages to feel connected to his urban roots, the singer-songwriter beautifully shows off his ability to create tunes that are as tender as they are massive. 

Ruel - Don't Tell Me

Ruel may just be fourteen years of age, but his musical ability already shines with a maturity that ranges far beyond his years. His debut single incoporates elements of gospel and RnB into an initially minimalist piano arrangement that allows his wildly impressive voice to really take off.
