Skott: "I'm usually in a fantasy world" | Dork

It's barely been eighteen months since Skott released her triumphant first single 'Porcelain', but now several faultless tracks down the line, it looks as though a debut album is in the works.


Blossoms - Cool Like You | Dork

Label: Virgin EMI Released: 27th April 2018 Rating: ★★★★ Blossoms fans, please breathe a sigh of relief. 'Cool Like You' is here, and it delivers everything one might want from a second album. Critically, there's a healthy smattering of tracks that - at the bare minimum - equal the anthemic-might of earlier releases, such as 'Charlemagne' and 'Honey Sweet', that appeared on the band's eponymous debut.

Sunflower Bean - Twentytwo In Blue | Dork

Label: Lucky Number Released: 16th March 2018 Rating: ★★★★ Somehow, the comforting twangs of melody strummed up by an eclectic spread of guitars throughout 'Twentytwo in Blue' evoke a similar sense of nostalgia that underpins Sunflower Bean's debut album, 'Human Ceremony'.

Pale Honey - Devotion | Dork

Label: Bolero Recordings Released: 13th October 2017 Rating: ★★★ It's apparent from the get-go that Pale Honey had zero reservations when it came to exploring unfamiliarity in the making of their second LP, 'Devotion'. Quite the contrary, the band embraces a full spectrum of sound, characterised by a myriad of electric guitars, percussive synthesisers and catchy basslines.
