#R220 with Pete Morey

On this week's chart we have four new entries and a brand new number one!

Leading off the chart is Nashville's Rayland Baxter, who wrote a beautiful break up song inspired by a bent up paper clip his girlfriend left behind on his kitchen counter. 

Up next is Halifax's Quiet Parade with "We Were Here" a song that perfectly captures the feeling of driving through rural terrain. 

Oh Wonder are a London duo who are writing and releasing one single a month until they have a full record. Sparse and melodic, "Lose It" is the highest debut on the chart.

The unstoppable teen Alessia Cara jumps up to take the top spot with her Isaac Hayes/Portishead inspired summer jam, "Here."
