New Release Roundup 16/3/18

Emma Blackery – Dirt: A fun, bright, catchy pop track from Emma with echoes of Halsey and T.Swift whilst still maintaining her own personality, and her voice sounds the best it has on any of her songs to date. Great production on the track too! 80%

Sunflower Bean – Human For: Yet another teaser track for upcoming album TwentyTwo in Blue, ‘Human For’ is an upbeat, pounding rock track full of personality. The more you listen to it the more complex you realise the layered instrumentals are. Very excited for the album now. 92%

Q Tip & Demi Lovato – Don’t Go Breaking My Heart: If this is what the rest of this tribute album to Elton John is going to sound like then I am not interested at all. It’s sounding so hard to be different to the original it just comes across as forced. 20%

Louisa ft. 2 Chainz – YES: This sounds like a mid-charting Little Mix Single, especially because Louisa’s vocals are so multi-tracked here it sounds like a girl group are performing. The standard pop feature verse from 2 Chainz doesn’t really add anything to it either. 40%

Courtney Barnett – Need A Little Time: A really nice, insightful track from Courtney, almost a ballad but not too over the top. nice. 80%

Sigrid – Raw: The absolute banger that is Strangers was always going to be difficult to follow up, and with Raw, Sigrid takes it in a much calmer direction. Despite Sigrid’s appealing voice, unfortunately for me it is a fairly forgettable track. 50%
