We’ve been totally swept away by this beauty from London band Another Sky. With the kind of atmospheric, all-consuming energy of an Alt-J or Everything Everything track, Avalanche is a damning statement on the impact that negative masculinity can have on society.

Lead singer Catrin Vincent explains: “The song speaks of the toxic masculinity that bleeds into every other form of oppression, that causes white men with badges to shoot black men without, that causes women to live their lives in fear, that causes men themselves to live in fear.

“The song is heavily inspired by Tracy Chapman and her frank yet poetic accounts of injustice, and aligns itself with the current #metoo movement.”

This is a band right at the top of our must-see list. If they’re on yours too, then catch their upcoming show at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on 11 July. They’re also at Citadel Festival on 15 July.
