Smoke Radio Playlist Update

9 months ago
By Matthew Smith

Smoke Radio is back! Along with new presenters, shows and schedule, here is our first playlist of the year.

While this is very much a catch-up of the best songs that were released while we were off air, as always we’re also highlighting some of the best new artists around.

Here are our top picks;

Liv Dawson – Painkiller

Dawson recently spoke to Smoke Mag, and it’s not surprising that we’re also huge fans here at Smoke Radio. Her latest single, Painkiller, is produced by HONNE and she’s already worked with Disclosure – not bad for a 19 year old.

Banfi – June

I recently spoke to Banfi ahead of a sold out date in London and while they seemed surprised at the hype headed their way, it shouldn’t be too shocking given their knack of making smart and infectious indie pop.

Himalayas – Sigh on a Hurricane

While the Cardiff band are the least-known act on our playlist, it seems inevitable that won’t be the case for long. Sigh on a Hurricane blends brooding post-punk with arena-rock choruses, and it is glorious.

Maggie Rogers – Split Stones

After making Pharrell Williams cry, Rogers became a viral star before she had even released a single. Since then, she’s backed up her early potential with the stunning Now That The Light Is Fading EP and this standalone single cements her position as one of pop’s most exciting newcomers.
