Make the most of those walks back from class in the evening when the sun is still shining, because they won't be around for much longer. With the clocks going back on Sunday and Halloween arriving next week (it's hard to say whether this year is going too slow or too quickly), we're officially entering into colder and darker territory - literally. Don't worry, though: we've whipped up a brand new playlist of great new music to gear you up for the long, bitter nights ahead. Esther Vallee - Numbers Enticing electronic pop with a melancholic dancefloor edge, 'Numbers' is the newest single from 24-year-old Swedish artist Esther Vallee. Describing the song as being about "dark forbidden love", it's the perfect mix of sparkling and playful to get ready for the chillier nights out. Artificial Pleasure - Wound Up Tight The latest track from London four-piece Artificial Pleasure is a beast of eclecticism. Opening with a static, pulsing bass-line that nods to the likes of Nine Inch Nails, the song quickly becomes a mix of 70s funk rock and disco punk. In keeping with the mood, their singer even sounds like a hybrid of Davids Bowie and Byrne. Black Futures - LOVE "Ten minutes 'til the end of the world!" The second single from industrial noise-punk duo is certainly timely. Featuring a rap verse from P.O.S of Doomtree, 'LOVE' is heavy, dark and perhaps the most explosive single you'll hear this week. Keir - Squeeze Me A raw and passionate vocal performance from Keir makes 'Squeeze Me' a fierce triumph for the Bristol singer-songwriter. The track blends soulful RnB with dark, ominous beats to make for one stompingly impressive introduction to an artist who may just be getting started, but who already has the air of a gifted professional.
