Newcastle, UK’s most promising Alt Electronica trailblazers SQUARMS’ latest single ‘Consequences’ is a dynamic DIY celebration of the UK underground. With groovingly sharp hooks which will lacerate you with 90s Pop nostalgia amongst elements of Indie Dreampop and gritty Hip Hop, Consequences is a smorgasbord of culture and style.
With every progression, there’s a new unpredictable evolution in the artist’s limitlessly expressive and intimate sound which borrows elements from the past to bridge the gaps between Hip Hop and Electronica scenes.
Newcastle’s aural contributions may frequently be overlooked, but tracks as eclectically indulgent as Consequences are hard to ignore.

London-based artist and producer Mari dug up the roots of underground UK EDM and planted them within their hypnotic debut EP ‘Midheaven’.
Lush layers of reverb lace steady beats with ethereal glazing in the standout track ‘So Easy’, allowing the track to border on the celestial. With warm, yet phantasmal vocals, So Easy doesn’t solely offer instrumental entrancement. Mari’s sultry vocal timbre will leave you transfixed as she explores her evocatively wide vocal range.
There’s also an incredible intimacy to be found in So Easy. Tonally, the soundscape may share qualities with those cooked up by the likes of Warpaint, but Mari’s love for the underground resonates throughout the entire EP.
