Scottish singer-songwriter Chris Mossop takes us on a roadtrip through the southern states of America with his new single ‘Sister Mary and Sister Josephine’. It’s a track on which warm acoustic guitar chords are interwoven with yearning melodic slides, building up to a triumphant, anthemic chorus that calls out for the listener to sing along.

Matt Robertson and Craig Harkness, childhood friends from Glasgow, released the pre-summer smash ‘Paradise’ on 28 March. The shining indie-pop banger is nicely pieced together in terms of both production and songwriting, with an infectious chorus and a subtle mix of groove and grit. Under the name Victoria’s Flight, this release is the group’s first since 2017. If that means they’ve spent the past two years writing a collection of tunes in the same vein as this one, it’s not been time wasted.
