From Bastille to The Raconteurs, here's June's most exciting upcoming releases.
The indie and pop worlds go hand in hand when it comes to releasing super infectious and thoroughly uplifting tunes. June promises to get the summer off to an anthemic start with these seven albums, which you should definitely have on pre-order.

Made up of 13 tracks with 7 interludes, VHS is a personal and family orientated album featuring home family tape recordings. 'Renegades', the second single taken from the album, is a soft track lead by an acoustic guitar, allowing the subtle tones and melodies to ease listeners into the album. Since its release the track has received great attention and radio air play in the UK & US and recently in topped the Hot AC chart in America.
