One of my favourite breakout artists from 2012, Tanya Lacey has a new video. And as expected, I’m blown away. The EP ‘Head Chef’, is out October 8th.
This has to be the FUNNIEST thing I’ve seen all year. It’s a bit naughty to watch at work but it’s so worth it. I want to meet Steve Kardynal and give him a massive hug. Brave and f****g funny!
Featured late last year, it’s very easy to put Youngblood Hawke’s new single on loop and listen to it all day- catchy and really bright pop. Will this be their breakthrough? Yes…
One of my favourites from this year, Jess Mills has a new, beautiful single out soon, and this is a preview.
One big track deserves to get a re-release. Man Like Me will release their new single ‘London Town VIP’ on August 20th The song might be familiar to fans of the band, but it has been given a reboot by Mike Skinner, who is currently working with the band on their new album,The track, which is an anthem lamenting the downfall of a UK garage MC, has been a crowd favourite at Man Like Me’s riotous live shows for years – and is set to become an alternative anthem for London 2012 with this incredible new version.
Foe drops the final single off her debut album ‘Bad Dream Hotline’ this month, called ‘Black Lodge’ (released Monday 23rd). It comes with the previously unheard b side ‘Frankenstein’, which is what you’re listening to right now. She’s also playing the Hoxton Bar and Kitchen on Thursday 26th July.
Kymberley Kennedy’s back with a new mixtape. It’s good.
Any song that contains the word ‘douche’ in the lyrics is likely to be an interesting listen… So here’s one by Meg Myers for you. This is a brilliant, raw, sexy track and not something you’d have heard before.
Amazing new track from someone who will no doubt be very, very popular very soon. You can download this track for free over on her website!
Josh Kumra is one of the most exciting kids to come out of 2012 so far for me, and his magnificent debut single Helicopters & Planes (with U.S.G member K Koke guesting) is amazing. Produced by the man of the moment Naughty Boy, it sees Josh deliver a slice of distinctly UK hip hop soul.
This has been out there for over a week, but if you’re reading this in the UK you’ll probably feel the need to hear this today after the long weekend you’ve (probably) just had. It’s the Noisette’s new single and it’s very good.
My favourite indie poppers are back with an impressive new single.
When I heard this track last week I got really, really excited. I didn’t know back then who sang it. It’s been revealed that it was Aiden Grimshaw. To me, this is everything current pop should be, and more.
Aiden Grimshaw will release his incredible debut single ‘Is This Love’ on June 3 through RCA Records.
The song, written by Aiden, is taken from his debut album ‘Misty Eye’ which will be released on August 13.
The album contains all original material, co-written by Aiden.
Following his appearance on the show, Aiden, who is 20 years old, moved from his hometown of Blackpool to London and set up a home studio where he spent two years writing and recording demos with various writers and producers.
‘Is This Love’ is an extraordinary, soaring pop anthem exploding with grinding drum & bass beats, and offers a taste of the light and shade, which Aiden explores in ‘Misty Eye’.
