It’s that time of the week again as we set sail across the glistening oceans and choppy waters of the new music releases. Let us take you by the hand through some choice specimens amongst the seaweed.
Catch of the day:
Christine and the Queens – Doesn’t Matter
Straight off the back of the glorious ‘Girlfriend’ comes this little belter. It’s a slick piece of pop which is also available in her native French tongue
Also currently frying:
Boy Pablo – Sick Feeling
Nineteen year-old Pablo delivers a dreamy slice of pop fit for a summers day in the park. Excited for his EP coming soon.
Tom Grennan – Aboard
A soulful song, packed with emotion and iced with brass from the London singer songwriter
Satellite Stories – Carried Away
Immerse yourself in this bop revelling in getting lost in reality, and loving it. Infectiously catchy.
Gabrielle – Shine
Pop legend Gabrielle returns with a slick and stylish slice of Swedish produced pop ahead of her new studio album (her first in 11 years) ‘Under My Skin’.
Ward Thomas – Lie Like Me
Top pop- country infused with Carly Rae Jepsen from this Hampshire born duo.
Mayka – Watching You
Still in Sweden, singer/producer Mayka delivers this fresh and bouncy track which minimalist production and an infectious bass.
Poppy – Metal
Poppy packs a punch with a wonderful piece of electro pop with whisps of 80’s synth hanging in the background like a be-tassled pair of curtains
Lucianblomkamp – Doing This For You
Melbourne’s Lucianblomkamp delivers a rich and complex track exploring electronic and guitar soundscapes to great effect. Immerse yourself.
Sharks – Life After Love
NOT a respectful Cher homage, but something much more colourful, with a faint whiff of panpipes.
Henri – Last Dance
It’s big, its epic, it’s melancholic, London DJ/remixer Henri delivers an immersive and haunting track.
Cotton Candy – Fanfickk
A sickly sweet wallop of power synth pop from the New Zealand act.
Charles Fauna – Wait to Come Over
The second track from his forthcoming August EP is a tranquil indie/dance pop treat.
Blonde (feat. Bryn Christopher) – Me, Myself & I
True to form Blonde release another helping of 90’s influenced dance, but in the summer sun who can resist those glorious piano riffs.
Clypso – Pop Roll Flow
Head back to the beats of the 80’s with fun future disco anthem.
Throw it Back:
Max George – California
The solo career no one ‘Wanted’ – with a dance track which would have been considered tired two years ago.
Years & Years – Up in Flames
The Years boys finally release their long…long awaited sophomore album this week and anyone who was braced for a drop in top pop bangers can rest easy…it’s swimming with them. This track is a great example of a progression in sound while still remaining true to their hardcore pop loving roots.
