What a weekend for festivals! Whether you were at Finsbury Park dancing your booty off to Liam Gallagher and Queens of the Stone Age or TRNSMT Festival doing your best dad dancing to Arctic Monkeys, it was scorching and we’re probably all suffering from heatstroke today. To bring you back from your post-festivals blues (or regrets if you spent the weekend tanning in the garden), this week we’ve got a groovy mixture of fresh new tunes to motivate us. Moon Panda – Rabbit 'Rabbit' by Moon Panda is the perfect example of dreamy pop with a contagious bassline that captures you throughout. Moon Panda are a four-piece that roll with perfect melodies in their music including a something indescribable that instantly hooks you in. Written by Maddy Myers, she explains the track as being about unhealthy love. "It’s someone so infatuated with their partner that they can’t end their tragic, dependent relationship." Hana Vu – Shallow 'Shallow' is Hana Vu’s second single from her EP, How Many Times Have You Driven By. The track is full of funky drum beats and unique vocals that immediately intrigue you about this 17-year-old Californian pop sensation to be. This single has some nifty guitar work that is impressive on any record, nevermind a 17-year-old. Hana has full control over her work and collaborates with her friends to produce her unique vision. Teksti-TV 666 – Aidattu Tulevaissus Finnish psych-punk/krautband, Teksti-TV 666 only formed a few of years ago and things have shot out of the water for the 6-piece. Aidattu Tulevaissus is also the title oftheir upcoming album, due to be released in September, this track is the second to be released. Singing in their native tongue, it’s a refreshing sound to hear authenticity and not just another alt-rock band. Teksti-TV 666 is a band built on contradictions, they’re shoegaze but heavier and dynamic with layers of intricate melody. Exploded View – Raven Raven Exploded View, the international project of Welsh-bred, Berlin-based Annika Henderson, and Mexico City-based Hugo Quezada and Martin Thulin (Crocodiles), return with their second album Obey, which is set for release in September. Giving us a taste of what’s to come is their single, 'Raven Raven'; a groovy, dark track that oozes wonder. Annika’s voice echoes around your brain with swirling guitars and electronic beats that carry the record into another dimension. Natalie Holmes – Hideout
