Round two of my newest feature: and I’ve got some utter BEAUTIES for you to listen to today.
Chloe Howl – Rumour
One of my ‘Four musicians for 2014’, Chloe Howl is everything that pop music should be – and ‘Rumour’ is her best song yet. Expect witty lyrics all about high school gossip and trying to find your identity growing up: this is a very relatable song for all women everywhere.
The Neighbourhood – Sweater Weather
Having supported The 1975 on tour past and present, The Neighbourhood are going to follow closely in their steps. The American band are rock, but with a distinct difference. Layered, sultry vocals and a beautifully composed set of instruments are combined to create a really gorgeous, soft rock track.
The Internet – Dontcha
A chugging, heavy bass contrasted with a soft, high pitched voice shouldn’t work – but this definitely does. LA based, The Internet are an all-new breed of soul and one that is here to stay.
LOLO – Gangsta
Who would have thought that the otherwise calm, delicate beginning of this track could be such a feisty, kick-ass song? Currently supporting John Newman on tour, the Brooklyn singer also endorses a new, powerful kind of pop-soul. Be sure to watch her sing with Angel Haze on the BBC 1Xtra live lounge HERE.
Tensnake – Love Sublime ft Nile Rogers & Fiora (Duke Dumont Remix)
Nile Rogers may be a bit of a genius in my books – but Duke Dumont has STOLEN THE SHOW with this incredible remix of an otherwise lovely, but anti-climatic song. It’s absolutely stacked with bold sounds and an intensely powerful chorus to get you ready for the weeeeekend.
