Olan Monk Fameless

Ahead of their Auto Life EP, Irish multi-disciplinary artist Olan Monk has shared the genre-agnostic ‘Fameless’.

Pre-order the EP on Bandcamp here.

BAD WITH PHONES Ghosts

With how accessible making music is and the sheer amount of music dropping every Friday it can sometimes feel like we’re being swamped with half-baked imitators. So when something genuinely original pops up it needs to be shouted about. BAD WITH PHONES’ ‘Ghosts’ is a smokey, spoken word trip into the South Londoner’s psyche.
