6 Music picks: Margaret Glaspy & Imaginaire

Every week we get to play two tracks for Tom Robinson on his excellent BBC 6 Music Introducing show... you can listen again here

Margaret Glaspy - Bitter Wind



A best mate of mine Corrina lives in New York, and it’s thanks to her endless quest for interesting and independent live music nights that TOW brings you California native Margaret Glaspy. Living now in Brooklyn she’s fast making a name for herself with her unique voice and original writing style. Margaret is only 23 to boot, which means many happy years of songwriting lie ahead - and we here at TOW wander once again, what have we done with our lives?!

Imaginaire - Holding Onto Hope



Imaginaire are a South East London band consisting of David, Chris and Nico and a revolving party of vocalists. On this one, young singing upstart Kimberley Anne lends her soft lilting vocals as the band explore their electro side with a bank of analog synths and some New Romantic quiffs. This single is out on New Antique Records, with a dreamy B side equally worthy of a listen, Postdrome Waltz.
