4 songs by you can’t stop listening to right now?

'Rearrange' by Biffy Clyro
Top songwriting and it shows a softer side to Biffy.

'Restless' by Louis Berry
Exciting new artist with iconic vocals. I had the pleasure of touring with him last year.

'We Used To Be In Love' by Clean Cut Kid
I think this band are super quirky and destined for big things. This track has a really hooky chorus and gets you singing along on the first listen.

'Prisoner' by Ryan Adams
He makes everything sound completely effortless.
