First Listen: Friendly Fires ‘Why Dont You Answer?’

My favourite band (probably, ever…) have covered a 1980’s classic and it’s beautiful. It’s featured on the album Late Night Tales – Friendly Fires.

First Listen: The Neighbourhood ‘Let It Go’

The Neighbourhood have a stomper of a new single out January 14th 2013 that’s really worth a listen. This band will be huge.

First Listen: Icona Pop ‘We Got The World’

Another new electropop gem from those cheeky Swedes.

First Listen: Josefina Stanner ‘Clock Stands Still’

This might be the happiest bit of indie you might hear all week. It’s the new single from Swedish indie pop newcomer Josefina Sanner.

First Listen: Christophe Willem ‘Love Shot Me Down’

So, I must admit I’m a fan of this French pop star. At a first listen you would think it’s a girl’s vocal, but it isn’t. And that’s what makes Christophe Willem’s voice so extraordinary. His brilliant first album ‘Inventaire’ was released in 2008 sold over  900.000 units in France alone. He’s playing London’s Bush Hall on Wednesday 28th November- be sure to catch him if you can!

First Listen: Frida Sundemo ‘Indigo’

Frida Sundemo is one of my favourite Scandinavian artists, period. And yet she’s still so new I don’t know anyone to share this love of her with. Anyway, it looks like things are finally picking up for this talented Swede as this new track sounds super polished and ready for global domination. About time.

First Listen: Frankmusik ‘Fast As I Can’

Ive always been a fan of Frankmusik– and of late Im not really sure what his story is, but this new track has emerged and it’s pop brilliance.

First Listen: Amelia Lily ‘Shut Up (And Give Me Whatever You Got)’

I must admit, I really wasn’t much of a fan of Amelia Lily. And come to think of it, I still don’t think I am. However, this new offering from the X Factor UK almuni is pretty spectacular.

First Listen: Lovelife ‘Heaven’

Record of the week. New icy-cold, synthy pop gem from Lovelife. The new EP, ‘The Fourth Floor’ is out December 10th.

First Listen: Jessie J ‘Silver Lining’

What do we think with this new Jessie J track? Hard to believe she was featured here as a new artist just two years ago to the month.

First Listen: Rebel Rebel ‘Project Runway’

Dreamy, synthy single from Sweden’s new disco pop outfit Rebel Rebel.

First Listen: Katy Tiz ‘Famous’

Katy Tiz has been on my radar for some time, and it’s nice to see that her debut is a pretty decent pop track. Where it leads to I’m not sure- I think it’s a bit premature writing up a song about fame from a newcomer (although it does end in a ‘Im not famous anyway’ line), but it’s good nonetheless.

First Listen: Swiss Lips ‘Something In The Water’

A little Saturday afternoon disco courtesy of Swiss Lips.

First Listen: Fenech-Soler ‘All I Know’

I’ve always been a bit on the fence with Fenech-Soler, but this song is close to brilliance.

First Listen: Holy Ghost! ‘It Gets Dark’

One of my favourite electro duo’s of the year have come up with another stomper of a track.

First Listen: Icona Pop ‘Good For You’

New music from Icona Pop! How can you not love these two cute Swedes? Anyway, Iconic EP is out now.

First Listen: Rudimental feat Alex Clare ‘Not Giving In’

So another week begins, and there’s nothing more motivating to start the day than with an epic bit of noise by Rudimental and Alfitude favourite, Alex Clare. Happy Monday.
