Happy Friday! The weekend is just around the corner, and we’ve put together the perfect soundtrack for it with new sounds from Café Spice, Heavy Lungs, ISLAND and more. Here are five fresh tracks from New Music Friday.
ISLAND – ‘Just That Time Of The Night’
ISLAND have just dropped a new single, alongside dates of a headline EU/UK tour.
‘Just That Time of The Night’ is the first track from the four-piece’s forthcoming EP, set to be released early next year via Beatnik/Frenchkiss.
Speaking about the track, ISLAND said: “Your night is winding down, everything is starting to feel a bit weird. Disconnected from your surroundings and the people around you. It’s just that time of the night.”
ISLAND kick off their headline tour in February of next year – check out the dates here.
Café Spice – ‘Lauren’
Manchester trio Café Spice have made their debut with single, ‘Lauren’.
Named after band member Georgia Gage’s little sister, ‘Lauren’ laments the bond of sisterhood and the pain of homesickness. Filled with hypnotic harmonies, film melodies and sincere, sweet lyricism, it’s a tantalising introduction to the group.
‘Lauren’ is the first in a series of singles recorded in British Grove Studios to be released by Café Spice.
You can catch them performing at Jimmy’s in Manchester on 6th February of next year.
Elina – ‘Champion’
Swedish artist ELINA dropped her new single ‘Champion’, ahead of her debut EP in Spring 2019.
‘Champion’ is a disarmingly tender track, with welcoming, warm vocals veiling heartwrenching lyricism which lament the feeling of inadequacy in relationships.
Speaking of the track, ELINA explained: “To me, ‘Champion’ is about fear. Personally, when I get scared of losing someone or if I feel inadequate in a relationship – any relationship – I tend to disguise that fear with rejection.”
Kevin Krauter – ‘Suddenly’
Indiana-based musician Kevin Krauter has shared a new video for his track ‘Suddenly’, taken from his debut solo album Toss Up.
Krauter has also revealed the dates of his first UK/EU tour in February 2019 – you can check out the dates here.

The visuals for the track, which was penned about IDLES frontman Joe Talbot, have been directed and edited by Elliot Pearce.
