Lou Ella - Clown

Lou Ella, also of Los Angeles, has released her latest indie-pop single 'Clown' - this one discusses societal obligations, and being tired of giving a shit about them. I hear ya!

In collaboration with other artists, Lou Ella is also launching a collective to support fellow DIY artists in their endeavours - she's an ethical businesswoman, honeeyyyy.

Kate Brunotts - Projections

Kate is our art-pop queen here at Scary Canary - nobody else looks set to take that crown just yet, as she releases 'messy and imposing' new single 'Projections'.

You know when you can't quite put your finger on what you're feeling, but you know it's a good feeling? That's what Kate Brunotts conveys perfectly here. Have a listen...

Discover on 'Scary Canary: Alt Rising'.

Perfect for: existential crises, acid trips.

I think it's safe to say that PLEASURE CENTRE is the best shoegaze outfit to have come out of Scarborough. Not that I have seen many, but my point stands. If they keep going this way, they'll be on track for world domination...

'Opener' is gritty, thrashy, and ethereal all at once. This band of four are well and truly bringing the noise (and the noise is very, very good).

Perfect for: smashing up your ex's belongings.
