New Release Roundup 6th September 2019

The Waah-Kin Tribe – Mundane Mardy Life: ‘‘Mundane Mardy Life’ is the second single from the Waah-Kin Tribe is a really solid indie-rock anthem, sitting somewhere between The Courteeners & Jake Bugg. 80%

Grimes & i_o – Violence: Violence is the third track from Grimes this year, and it sees her pairing up with techno wizard i_o. The two of them work really well together; ‘Violence’ is a dreamy, spacey bop with really intricate layers of synths and drums, you hear something new every time you listen. 90%

Night Flowers – Fortune Teller: A really lovely piece of dreamy indie pop here from Night Flowers, continuing their run of being one of the most underrated indie bands in the world. 92%

Stormzy – Sounds Of The SkengThis new Stormzy track is good, but it’s really hard to differentiate it from an album track from Gang Signs & Prayer. It’s well performed and well produced, but it’s a step below his latest few singles. 70%

Camila Cabello – ShamelessThe first of 2 new singles Camila dropped today, Shameless is proof that Camila is one of the best voices in pop right now. The gritty, bassy drop around the chorus of this track is amazing, and shows that Camila’s voice is very adaptable. 85%

Camila Cabello – LiarThis is the second of Camila’s singles to come out today, and is more of the latin inspired pop that you would expect from her, with real clear reggaeton influences in there too. It’s still a bop though and will probably chart really well. 65%

Naaz – damage 😦Following on from the massive banger that is ‘Taped’ was always going to be difficult, but Naaz has done it. ‘Damage :(‘ is an introspective track with low key production that really allows Naaz’s brilliant songwriting and vocals to shine through. One of the most promising acts on the planet right now. 91%

Kele – Jungle Bunny:  This new track from Kele is a banger. A vibrant, groovy instrumental backs his reflective bars, and his voice is as strong as ever on the extremely catchy chorus. His best solo effort to date. 92%

Metronomy – Wedding Bells: All of the tracks from the upcoming ‘Metronomy Forever’ album have been some of the groups best work to date, and ‘Wedding Bells’ continues that trend. Groovy, catchy and up-beat, this is trademark Metronomy. 90%

Foals – The Runner: With ‘Black Bull’ alongside this new single, their upcoming album is shaping up to be potentially their strongest yet. ‘The Runner’ is almost cinematic, with the vocal production sounding really dramatic. Tune. 80%

King Princess – Ain’t Together: Taken from her upcoming album ‘Cheap Queen’, ‘Ain’t Together is a slick, chill new single from King Princess that sees her really open up. 75%

Louis Tomlinson – Kill My Mind – This sounds like a song that would be played in the credits of a really bad kids’ movie, or like the song a band from a really bad kids’ movie would play at a ‘Battle of the Bands’ contest. 20%

Charli XCX, Clairo, Yaeji – February 2017 – A futuristic banger from Charli, Clairo and Yaeji here, with Charli and Clairo pretty much duetting over a slowly building, complex bubblegum-synth pop backing. Consistently showing herself to be one of the most inventive names in pop right now. 90%
