Whether you're into punk, pop or R&B, we've got you covered with a selection of ten brand new tracks to add to your playlists and potentially to your record collections. Petrol Girls - Fang Dripping with riot grrrl energy, Petrol Girls are in the process of striking the match to set the UK punk scene alight. 'Fang' is the latest in a series of hard-hitting singles from last year's critically acclaimed debut Talk of Violence - striking out against sexism in the music industry one head-crushing punk riff at a time. red kite - take care of your own Art-rock meets indie with just a sprinkle of melancholy on this new single by East London six-piece red kite. The video follows a creepy bug-eyed character made of felt as he navigates his way through various parks in London. The song delves, lyrically, into the feeling of desperation you feel at being unable to help a struggling friend and builds to a suitably climactic end. White Moth Black Butterfly - The Serpent From the brainchild of the songwriters behind progressive metal heavyweights TesseracT and Skyharbor, White Moth Black Butterfly create spacey, leftfield experimental pop melodies counterpointed with prog sensibilities. New track, 'The Serpent' - the first from their second full-length album - pitches intricate acoustic guitar against precise live-drumming to create a gorgeous pop soundscape. Rainbrother - Fat Eggs The lead single from Copehagen-bred dreamers Rainbrother's latest album Tales From The Drought, 'Fat Eggs' is an infectiously tranquil ballad that sways from side to side lazily while also remaining completely engaging. Vocalist Bjarke Bendtsen sings of late night temptations and the grandeur of being alive. Slaughter Beach, Dog - Building The Ark
