Summer has arrived and so have a wealth of fantastic releases from across the ICMP music community.

Listen to some of the best new tracks to have been unleashed ruing the last month by our students and alumni.


Kate Lomas

Our BA (Hons) Songwriting alumna Kate Lomas has recently released her new single ‘Happy Like This’. The song, she stated, talks about "realising that happiness isn’t always that thing you’ve been striving for. It’s hard to remember to just be happy the way you are in whatever situation you’re in". 

With its echoes of 80s rock ballads, 'Happy Like This' definitely made it in our summer playlist.
