It's been a while, but Friday Finds is back with a vengeance and fighting fit 💪
On the list this week; indie-pop, disco, electronica, and alternative R&B from some of the most exciting artists to grace our ears this month. So, without further ado...
EZRAE - Not My Job
"['Not My Job' is] an egotistical take on a modern love song" - and we're here for it 💅
R&B meets lo-fi pop in Ezrae's brand-new single. Inspired by pop and alternative sensations Chase Atlantic, Blackbear, and Yungblud, Walsall's Ezrae combines catchy hooks with feminist lyrical themes in a song centred around hedonistic youth.

PRISON BEACH CLUB - Someone
"Heartbreak and disappointment, but with a view that things will always get better" - enjoy the last of the Summer sun with Prison Beach Club's easygoing single 'Someone'.
The Maidstone four-piece have been making dream-pop for surfers (or surf-pop for dreamers) since 2020, taking influence from Paul Simon and Graceland. Keep an eye on their social media for tickets to their debut live performance, coming soon ✌️
Perfect for: barbecue and beach day playlists.

KID FICTION - Nora
"[Nora is] about being vulnerable and confronting hard truths" - Kid Fiction's sultry new single sets itself somewhere between electronica and alternative pop.
Kid Fiction's moody and introverted songwriting style will appeal to fans of James Blake and Moses Sumney. Hailing from Sydney, the artist is inspired by Australia's underground electronic music scene but appreciated the world over, having once played a set at Ministry of Sound in London.
