New Release Roundup 17th Nov 17

The Voques – Easier Said Than Done: The new single from Scunthorpe based band The Voques is a catchy, upbeat indie rock single in a similar vein to Circa Waves and The Sherlocks. Very nice. 80%

Sunflower Bean – I Was A Fool: A great new single from Sunflower Bean with some serious Fleetwod Mac vibes. The vocals from both Julia and Nick bring through a lot of personality to the track. 85%

N.E.R.D and Rihanna – Lemon: Pharrell, Chad and Shay are back with a new track featuring Rihanna. It’s pretty much what you would expect, but top verses from P and Rih make this a good comeback single. 75%

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – It’s a Beautiful World: Unfortunately another boring song taken from Noel’s upcoming album ‘Who Built The Moon’. If you listen closely, you can hear the scissors. 50%

Tame Impala – List Of People (To Try And Forget About): This track is taken from a deluxe edition of 2015’s Currents. This extra track being as good as it is is a testament to just how high quality the original album was. 90%

U2 – The Blackout: A punchy new single from U2, with a very ‘U2’ sounding chorus. Fair enough. 70%

Taylor Swift – Reputation: The new album from Taylor Swift is a very solid pop album. Opener ‘Ready for It’ builds tension pretty well and has great production. While some of the songs are a bit samey, there is enough variety here to keep you interested. 70%
