So many artists, so little time. Each week we review a handful of new albums (of all genres), round up even more new music that we'd call "indie," and talk about what metal is coming out. We post music news, track premieres, and more all day. We update a playlist weekly of some of our current favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.

Talks about the vengeful shero are spreading, and now men are scared to misbehave, because they're well aware that revenge is coming.”

HOLLY HUMBERSTONE - "LONDON IS LONELY"

British musician and songwriter Holly Humberstone released a new EP, The Walls Are Way Too Thin, in November, and ahead of her upcoming tours supporting Olivia Rodrigo and girl in red, she's shared a wistful, melancholy new single. "I wrote 'London Is Lonely' back in February 2020 right before the pandemic hit here in the UK," Holly says. "I had just moved out of my childhood home down to London and had spent the past few months feeling really trapped and alone in my tiny flat with strangers. London felt so intense and although there were so many people around me, I felt even more isolated and like I didn’t belong. I kind of lost myself in the city. I didn’t exactly know who I was anymore, and so going home and writing felt like my safe space to process everything. It’s funny now listening to the song almost two years on, post-pandemic, and feeling like nothing much has changed at all. I’m still trying to find my place here and make it my home and so it felt right to put this song out into the world right now, when so many other people are probably feeling lost right now too."
