I just found out yesterday that X Factor is still ‘a thing,’ but I reckon you’ll be much better of checking out this week’s mixtape for tomorrow’s chart-toppers.
Catgod – Sleep In
Most of us spend our time with our siblings bickering but here Catherine and Robin have created a dreamy, immersive track complete with flowing flutes and contrasting vocal harmonies.
Slumberjack x Machine Age – Daggers
Rock and electronica fuse together in this boundary-pushing collaboration creating emotive riffs and a soaring, anthemic chorus which would not struggle to have stadiums bursting at the seams.
Iuliano – Not A Sound
Soft, whispering vocals accompany a haunting piano line yet there is a soothing element which deems the track perfect for lazy Sunday mornings.
The Slow Readers Club – On The TV
If you’re like us and can’t get enough of the current wave of 1980s inspired indie then the latest single from the Manchester based quartet will go down on a treat. Staying true to the signature sound which their city produces, we’re expecting to hear a lot more from them in 2019.
Libby Whitehouse – Rewind
Playful distortions overlay club beats putting an energetic twist on the rules RnB slow jams.
Ifi Ude – Weapon of Love
Soul-baring vocals mysteriously float around pounding, danceable rhythms in Ude’s uplifting latest single.
Blonde Diamond – Better When You’re Close
We’re hitting the dancefloor again and trying to keep up with this highly-energetic pop-dance crossover taken from the Canadian group’s latest EP Fantasy Love.
Childcare – Bamboo
A track which jumps head first into the big rhythms yet is also a eclectic mixture of indie floor-filler and a gentle sense of wonderment.
Sons of The East – Nothing Comes Easy
Husky vocals, intimate, acoustics and soothing keys deems this track another one worthy of a Sunday morning playlist.
