It’s always good to do your bit for society, and here at HTF, when we aren’t helping out at the local village bake-off, we like to help out artists by supporting their latest releases.
We know that so many people are very cautious when it comes to anything new especially if it has not already been playlisted by radio or shown on TV. Don’t fret as these tracks have been through a vigorous screening process so that you can take a deep breath, relax and enjoy some of the best new music around.

Sundara Karma – ‘She Said‘
No this isn’t a cover of the excellent Longpigs single. But certainly, shares an influence from Brit Pop via The 1975’s. The Reading boys most can certainly write a pop tune. Pre-order, the debut album Youth, is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect, out January 2017. Check out their website for details.

Finland has a habit of producing indie bands who are seemingly obsessed with C86 and shoegaze. Mumrunner isn’t shy about expressing their influences, and we aren’t shy about our adoration for the band. Their Gentle Slopes EP is out now, check out their Facebook for details.
