It can feel a bit weird, at times, referring to an artist on their debut album as Capital Letters Important – but there’s no denying that girl in red is capable of touching the deep, dark, mushy stuff inside of her fans in a way few of her peers can. Even from a considerate, pandemic-appropriate distance, it’s plain to see she’s a musician that speaks on a whole different level. Honest to a fault, but without ever being boring or a drag with it; as her debut album ‘if i could make it go quiet’ waits for the lights to go green, we’re delighted to have her back on the cover of Dork for this month’s new issue – out today (12th March).

Elsewhere this month, we’ve got one of the best new bands in the country Dry Cleaning, as they both prepare to deliver their debut album ‘New Long Leg’, and admit one of their number is – quote – “a sausage roll”. Important journalism ahoy! Danny L Harle talks pop and admits his secret love of Madness, while Sorry give us an important update on ‘stuff’. We chat to our fave indie prince Alfie Templeman and a pair of music industry puppets, plus a whole bunch of exciting fresh talent including For Those I LoveDo NothingBullThe Snuts and ‘more’.

In Hype, we’re on full charge with ELIO, yee-haw-tastic with CMAT, and get to know beaux and Blanketman. Plus Pixey and Nasty Cherry run us through their new EPs, Baby Queen answers our random questions and we spend a day with Curtis Waters.
