As August comes to a close, those end-of-summer blues might be setting in. Luckily though, we're back with another instalment of Friday Fresh to keep spirits high.  

This week, we have plenty of tracks to take you right through the Bank Holiday weekend. From Rina Sawayama's emotionally affecting Phantom to RAYE's raw club banger Black Mascara, as well as Jamie XX's remix of Oliver Sim's GMT, this week's list is stacked with incredible pop bops. Then there's hip hop and rap from D-Block Europe and Headie One, plus Comfy - an afro-beats inspired collaboration from Jelani Blackman, Moonchild Sanelly and Trillary Banks

Looking towards this week's indie offerings, Talk Show are back with Leather, the latest single from their upcoming second EP. There are also new tracks from Dylan Fraser and Willow Kayne, while bedroom pop prodigy beaux drafts in Hugo Silvani of Pale Waves to lay down a guitar solo on new track can't help but let you down

Rounding out the list are two vibrant collaborations, as Ezra Collective join forces with Sampha the Great on Life Goes On, while Rag'n'Bone Man and Ocean Wisdom team up on Circles. Have a listen to the full playlist below.
