If you’ve opened TikTok even for the briefest of moments this year, you’ll likely have heard ‘If We Ever Broke Up’, the funky, attitude-filled alt-pop bop sweeping the app. Its creator,19-year-old Kettering musician Mae Stephens, has been bombarded with messages to release the song in full and, now, the alt-pop hit of 2023 is here.

Before she woke up on New Year’s Day to some of the more than 200 million TikTok views that the track has now racked up, Mae was finding solace and sanctuary in her music-making between working shifts at her local Asda. A songwriter since the age of 12, she’d used music to guide her through the hardships of teenage life, pouring her heart out in emotional, impactful songs penned at her nan’s old piano


Formed in the summer of 2021, Balter are a four-piece from Northampton making anthemic, jangle-pop that belies their years. Consisting of Tom Drury (vocals/guitar), Jake Lewis (guitar), Liam Kay (bass) and Jack Cox (drums), the band have only just sat their GCSEs, which is even more surprising to anyone who has caught the band at their early, buzzy, packed-out shows. Still yet to release any music into the world, the band have been quietly bubbling away in the studio with producer,
Jonathan Hucks (Hallan), with the release of their debut single imminent.

This is a band focused on what they want to do, where they want to be in the future and how they are going to get there. Citing the likes of Mac DeMarco and Boy Pablo as inspiration, the breadth of Balters’ influences are clear to hear but never detract from their own unique identity and innate song writing ability. With early support already from BBC Introducing, the potential Balter have is unnervingly big – the future could well be theirs.
