Festive spirits are in full swing, and though the release of singles has been steady this week, the calibre sure isn't. Whether you want a new artist to rally your motivation the new year, or you simply want to hear something other than songs that contain the word 'Chr**tmas', we've got you covered.

Wet Dreams - Bad Boy
Oslo-punks Wet Dreams rip-roar into a raucous attack of dirty, high-octane guitar riffs, and fervent growls of anarchy in latest single 'Bad Boy'. For fans of bands such as FIDLAR, their newest release is just begging for pints of warm lager flung over the shoulder in momentary, abated outrage. It comes with the announcement of their debut self-titled album which will be released on 29th March via Black Pop Records. It's got more of a kick than a double espresso.
Kean Kavagnah -
Coca Cola Sky
You may know Kean Kavanagh as the co-founder of Soft Boy Records, the Heisenberg behind the decks of Kojaque and Luka Palm, or lending his stirring soulful tones to Kojaque's 'Eviction Notice'. But with his first independent single ' Coca Cola Sky', Kavanagh takes the mic, and the spotlight with three minutes of soulful-hedonistic goodness. It's a song about the way love feels brings about a feeling of intimacy to all the good aspects of life - "Baby when you're near me I feel like I'm in ecstasy."

Cleaning Women - We Work It Out Bored of the conventional guitar, bass, voice, drums setup? How about a band comprised completely from cleaning utensils such as a plastic bucket and a laundry rack? Good news, Cleaning Women exist and they're back with their first album in 10 years on 15th March. 'We Work It Out' is the first single released and is an endlessly humorous, "intergalactically fresh", and strangely danceable track, as they manipulate their DIY percussion to make you march to the beat of their plastic bucket.
Red Rum Club - Angeline The latest single from Liverpool based sextet, Red Rum Club exults a tale of raw regret of a lost lover, from the perspective of the pining party. Backed by powerful mariachi brass, lead singer Fran Dorman croons, "She left me blue for places greener", expressing the disconnectedness between him and his lost love. The band are to release their new album Matador on Modern Sky records. Children Of The State - How Right You Are On 'How Right You Are', Sheffield five-piece Children Of The State, release a glittering new ballad of love and loss, delivered in vocals injected with something of the Gallagher brothers' swagger. Despite only one EP in their discography (Kill Your Darlings) the band have received the airplay seal of approval from Steve Lamacq, and have created quite a stir in the guitar music gig scene. If bands like DMAS or The Courteneers are your cup of well-brewed tea, then these guys are for you.
