Holly Humberstone, Jockstrap and KennyHoopla are the cover stars for October 2023’s edition of Dork, out now.
With her debut album 'Paint My Bedroom Black' on the horizon, Holly Humberstone has long been a future superstar in waiting. With a full-length where raw emotions and relatable experiences create a musical sanctuary, she's become the artist she's always promised to be.
The past twelve months have seen Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye soar. Dropping one of 2022's most critically celebrated records, 'I Love You Jennifer B', Jockstrap found themselves nominated for this year's Mercury Prize. They may not have taken that final step to winners (yet), but they're still one of the most exciting, inventive acts on the planet.
"I want to be a fucking powerhouse of an artist", KennyHoopla says. "It'll take a lot… but I refuse to settle". That's the kind of energy that's made KennyHoopla one of the most vital and exciting artists today.
You’ll find in-depth interviews and photoshoots will all three in our new issue.
Elsewhere this month, we're checking in with pop queen Rebecca Black, talking debuts with four of Dork's faves, Claire Rosinkranz, Coach Party, Lucia & The Best Boys and Bleach Lab, plus causing chaos with Joey Valence & Brae.
In a packed edition of Hype, we're introducing d4vd, Mitch Rowland, Paris Paloma, Hannah Grae, Miso Extra and SOFY, while you'll find a massive catch up on everything that went on at Reading 2023, featuring Billie Eilish, The 1975, The Killers, Sam Fender and so, so many others.
And that's not including Vagabon, Fizz, Soft Play, Griff, Flowerovlove, Sprints, Caity Baser, Nilüfer Yanya, The Mysterines, Boygenius, Haim and loads more. It genuinely is our most ridiculous issue to date.
All physical orders of the October 2023 edition of Dork will ship by Friday, 6th October 2023.
