Following her set at this year’s SXSW, alt-popper Teagan Johnston has released her full-length debut ‘Sentimental Ballad’, an astonishingly beautiful, reflective and personal collection of tracks.

We still can’t get enough of this track, recently released by new Australian outfit clovo, the project creating seductively dark, alt-pop sounds a la Mia Rodriguez, Billie Eilish and Grimes.
