We’ve been treated to some BIG new music this week.

First of all, James Blake released 'The Colour in Everything'.

California funk-rock giants Red Hot Chili Peppers premiered their first single in five years.

All this being slightly overshadowed by Radiohead, who have treated us to not one, but two new songs and as of last night, a new album.

If that’s not enough new music for you, here’s some more…

THANKS – Dizzy

If you one of those people who actually remember Danish pop sensations Alphabeat, THANKS are for you! Consisting of original Alphabeat members Anders and Anders, this joyous piece of pop is constructed with the help of numerous artists, fitting together the pieces of a range of samples – the result being this feel good electro pop number that has hit written all over it.

 Red Hot Chili Peppers – Dark Necessities

In their five-year absence, including the exit of John Frusciante (again!), Red Hot Chili Peppers have had time to mature. Although the new track is drizzled in classic Chili’s with it’s characteristic bass and playful guitars, the addition of pianos and an ‘aaahy’ choral backing vocal signify a minor shift in direction for their upcoming eleventh studio album.

Charlotte Carpenter – Am I Alone in This?

Rising singer-songwriter Charlotte Carpenter lends her snarly vocals to deep and gritty single, ‘Am I Alone in This?’. The song’s focus lays in “the feeling of being inside your own head, too scared to voice your worries, doubts and fear”. Her frustration is firmly on display and backed up by a rage-filled sliding guitar and a hint of blues that carries through to the core of upcoming release How are We Ever To Know.

Quiet Hollers – Broken Guitar

Quiet Hollers break guitars, hearts and harmonies with the latest single taken from their self-titled debut. Set to a gentle riff and layered with snares, earnest keys and poetic lyrics, setting up the emotionally vivid atmosphere of rejection and longing.

Hooded Fang – Dead Battery

Hooded Fang’s latest release is all noise on deck. The Toronto based band have gone for all out chaos on ‘Dead Battery’, ahead of their fourth album Venus on Edge’s release on Friday. Combining manic riffs, mesmerising basslines and vocals with so much unwavering intensity they’ll leave you aching for more.

Iska Dhaaf – Invisible Cities

This Seattle based duo pioneer a uniquely unsettling experimental sound. The track may feel like a mish mash of genres but the duo's commitment to their aural craft assures that each layer of sound adds depth and energy. Drawn out vocals and harrowing whispers laid over this glitchy bass driven track come to life in it’s truly cinematic visual.

Vukovi – Animal

Scottish rock outfit Vukovi let their wild side out on rock power anthem 'Animal'. Packed with energy, Janine Shilstone's vocals glide over an array of aggressive riffs and feisty drums.

Ed Scissor + The Lamplighter – TTIW

As a key player in the Brit rap renaissance Ed Scissor’s gritty word-craft paints a dark depiction of reality on the first single from upcoming Tell Them Its Winter. The lyrics “third stop winter, last stop misery” aided by the smooth minimalist production of Lamplighter, create a sombre sound you can hear, feel and visualise – and it definitely looks a lot like the decrepit monochrome landscape created in the video.
