So, you know how it’s been the build-up to Summer for the last few weeks? Well, now we are officially here! Festival season, BBQ season, drinks on the patio season, all of the best things about life season! And with the long days and hot nights, you’re going to need music. You’re going to need songs that define this Summer for the rest of your life. That you listen to and think of these days instantly. Well, idobi has your back. idobi Radio, idobi Howl and idobi Anthm are all you will need, and we add brand new music every single week to keep it fresh and fierce.

So, with that said, here are a few of the new adds for your listening pleasure. You are very welcome.

Conquer Divide – The Invisible

Conquer Divide are the sort of band that modern metal was crying out for. Fierce yet feminine, tender yet terrifying, they are a breath of fresh air in a genre that flies too close to becoming stale too often. And with their upcoming album Slow Burn, they are playing with a potential classic. It features the likes of new single “The Invisible”, which delves into dramatic builds, pristine melodies and choruses that soar above the clouds. It demonstrates the band’s knack for writing pitch-perfect anthems alongside their heavier roots, showing them off as genuine all-rounders.

Talking Kind – Damn Shame

Talking Kind is the new project from Pat Graham, guitarist for beloved emo-punk legends Spraynard. Some of the energy from that project can be found here, albeit more loose and laid back. “Damn Shame” is his debut single and is all about his late mother and regret with time not spent paying attention more. There’s a bittersweetness to it, but the sentiment is still ever so lovely in its own way and a wonderful place to begin a new chapter.


BVMMER is one of a new breed of artists taking the rap/pop-punk crossover to new heights. And based on the sound of “DIE!”, it’s going to be a party-starting era. Of course, the song is a bit more brutally on the nose than that, with heavy lyrical themes delivered via a devilish grin. But musically, it combines the sort of free-flowing rap and dancefloor-rocking pop-punk that gets the kids swinging from the chandeliers. The result gets the blood pumping, and you’ll be blasting out on your late-night adventures in no time.

Seeing Things – Switchblade

Many may associate nu-metal with a particular period of time. But the truth is some bands are keeping the legacy alive and transforming it beyond belief. Seeing Things are one such band, and their latest pulsating masterstroke hammers it home wonderfully. Blending the dark and devastating atmosphere of metal’s weirdest creation with hard techno and brutal metalcore, they give the genre a shiny new coat of metallic paint. Never knowing which way they will turn next, it’s a joy to behold such creativity.

Tribe Family – Me And All My Friends

There’s nothing better than playing music with your friends. Well, writing music about playing music with your friends is the only way to top it. That’s exactly what Tribe Family have done with their latest track. This is a summation of the fun and the chaos of travelling with the people you love the most. It’s a sentimental and sensationally catchy summation of what it means to love and be loved in return, and we all need a bit of that now and again.

Immerse – Everything

Immerse are what every rock band should be in 2023. Creatively flexible, outrageously passionate and chomping at the bit to get out there and show what they are made of. And the latest track, “Everything”, embodies all of those things to devastating effect. Frantic on the surface but with plenty of British cheek and cheerfulness thrown in, it’s a wall bouncer in every sense. Readymade for small sweaty clubs as much as arena-sized stages, it will propel the band forward into the unknown in some style.

A Swift Farewell – FWMH

A Swift Farewell feel like a throwback in both name and nature. Embodying the carefreeness and emotional intensity of the scene back in 2009, they bring the sound of a thousand Summers crashing into the modern day with pride and passion. “FWMH” is a beautiful example of this, with earnest melodies and thrashing chords aplenty. Featuring an appearance from Terra’s Cassie Jade, adding a different perspective to the heartfelt storytelling, it’s a track that will heal your soul and remind you of when things weren’t so tricky. An instant idobi Radio classic.

Abyss Above – Embrace The Abyss

Deathcore is genuinely in the rudest health it has been in years, which is a proper treat. It’s even more of a treat when so many bands put out their absolute hardest and heaviest to help bludgeon the scene. Take Abyss Above, who sit on the more pummelling side of the spectrum, with sprinkles of otherworldly atmosphere coating the surface. And their latest offering, “Embrace The Abyss”, which features the unstoppable Dan Tucker of Crown Magnetar, will have you begging on your knees for reprisal from its devastation. Delving deeper and deeper into the unknown, it’s an idobi approved punisher, to say the least.

Marina City – Tanzanite

Marina City are rock and roll for a new generation of fanatics. Combining the soaring melodies of the greats with the twinkling atmospheres of the modern scene, theirs is a sound that will captivate all generations. And “Tanzanite” feels like their manifesto piece. Noodling riffs and hard-hitting builds clash head-on with popping production and glistening synths to create an undeniable sound. Seriously, this might be one of the best choruses of the year so far. Just let it wash over you and come back to us.

Nightly – Wear Your Heart Out

idobi Radio favorites nightly are heading straight towards the release of their new album, wear your heart out, with some vigour. It’s destined to be a record that you will be spinning on all of your forthcoming late-night drives, and for a good reason. Just one listen to the newly released title track, and you will be transported to the most gorgeous neon-drenched drive through the biggest of cities. With Jangly chords, flowery synths and a knack for penning an earworm of a hook, it’s a belter.
