We’re delighted to reveal Biig Piig as cover star for our new February 2023 issue.
Our love for Biig Piig isn’t a short term thing. Appearing in our 2021 Hype List, she’s been on the rise for a hot minute – but with new mixtape ‘Bubblegum’ she’s ascended to new levels. “When I started, I never thought I would be here now. I never expected it to go this way,” she says. We did. We always knew.
Biig Piig is one of three cover acts for our February 2023 issue, which also packs variants featuring The Murder Capital and Mimi Webb. They lead off an issue typically packed with loads of our faves, as we get the new year rolling in style.
There's musical mastermind SG Lewis, quickly becoming a label for the most exciting bops, and chart-topping success story RAYE, who proves you can't keep a good popster down. Indie legends Circa Waves are present and correct, as is Joesef, as he drops a debut album full of promise.
Elsewhere, we introduce hip young gunslingers Nell Mescal, Somebody's Child and Connie Campsie in Hype, run through the albums you need to be ready for in 2023, ask silly questions to Priestgate, head down the front with Muna, The Amazons, Holly Humberstone, Blossoms and Black Country, New Road, plus loads, loads more.
