A seemingly endless January. A seemingly endless not-quite-Covid cold. Miles and miles til pay day – and yet there’s the sodding tax return still looming. Who can turn our frowns upside down and add some seaside cheer to this grey Friday? Gemma Rogers can, that’s who! Her instantly favourite new single ‘The Great Escape’ is out today, and it’s an intravenous shot of musical ice cream.

FFO Piney Gir, Helen McCookerybook, Wet Leg, and British beach holidays.

It’s actually impossible not to do a nice little tippy tappy dance while listening to this (I proved this with Science).

It comes with a gorgeously animated video by Frank Burgess. And what’s more, there’s a whole EP out today too. More on that soon …
