RGM RECOMMENDS- WE REVIEW THIS WEEKS BEST TOP 5 LATEST SINGLES
The Lathums- Thoughts of a Child
The Lathums have been here there and everywhere this summer, playing festivals and supporting Louis Tomlinson on his European tour. However, they’ve found time before heading out on the October leg of the tour to release their brand new single ‘Thoughts of a Child.’
Blissfully innocent and wistful as ever, ‘Thoughts of a Child,’ encompasses the acoustic tones and loud yet gentle choruses you’d expect from a Lathums song.
There’s something about their music that feels like they’re singing only to you, which I think is an incredibly beautiful thing to be able to achieve.
The track feels like a goodbye to summer, emotional yet full of hope, and the Wigan band have once again released a beautifully gentle belter of a song.
Confident, edgy, alt rock. That’s Sam B-K’s new single ‘Juxtapose,’ summed up. It’s Yorkshire through and through, I mean, what’s not to love?
Clever lyricism meets strong, hard riffs. The breakdown towards the end of the song offers some relief from the heavy tones at the start. Staying true to his accent, ‘Juxtapose,’ is a track that will definitely be enjoyed by alt rock fans in today’s climate.
Following on from first single ‘The Chase,’ Sam B-K appears like he knows exactly what he’s doing and exactly what tunes he wants to make, and I’m looking forward to seeing how he progresses.
Now, if there’s one band you should be keeping your eye on in the indie scene right now, it’s The Kairos. Raw talent meets Scouse swagger to create these huge tunes that just keep coming and coming.
‘Suspend,’ is the first track to be released after their debut EP ‘Better Late Than Never,’ earlier this year. Guitar driven, anthemic and unapologetically loud, I can just picture the mosh pits being created during the bridge and end of the song.
The Liverpudlian four-piece are heading out on tour across the UK throughout October and November and they’re for sure a band you won’t want to miss. You know what they say, No Kairo, No Party.

Digsby – Buzzing Fly
Bristol based Digsby combine their base indie rock sound with alt country and hazy harmonies. ‘Buzzing Fly,’ encompasses all these influences, leaving us with an unsettling yet irresistible track.
The track takes us on a journey, deep basslines and dynamic drums drive it forward with these melodic yet haunting vocals to accompany.
It’s fuzzy, vintage and the perfect amount of scuzz rock that makes ‘Buzzing Fly,’ undeniably catchy.
