Every week, we highlight a couple of new acts from around the globe who’ve caught our attention. Please feel free to share tips below or check out all past New Music selections here.

Get Inuit

Get Inuit may have burdened themselves with a rubbish name but the music is truly smashing. Four young dudes from Kent playing scruffy, scuzzy surf pop, Get Inuit live are raucous and rowdy, with fine tunes like “My Oh My” burning hot.

Odetta Hartman

Future folk from a Manhattan native, Odetta Hartman’s debut album “222″ is a beguiling affair, full of futuristic frolics and frills as well as some really special cowgirl soul all delivered with a mighty voice. Check out songs like “Lazy LA” and “Creektime” for signs of a very special talent with some fierce talent and strong-minded intent taking her initial steps

Weaves

From Toronto, Weaves are set to be a favourite new band for many. Playing a dizzy, furious, edgy brand of punk rock, Weaves are a band who’ll stop you in your tracks with uproarious tunes like “Candy”. This one is a bit of a monster, a barrage of sound where the drums and guitars come together for a blast of exuberant, giddy energy before singer Jasmyn Burke throws some lyrical twisters into the pot.
