Nothing like a bit of harmless radio pop to finish a weekday off. New video from Olly Murs. The single is out on Nov 18th and album follows on Nov 26th.

New Music: The Bolts

Good throwback rock should be sharp, clean and most importantly fun. The Bolts tick all three boxes. Check out here.

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.

An epic way to start the day

Check out Alvin Risk’s massive remix of MONSTA’s newest track ‘Messiah’.

New Music: Bago

I think this will be very love or hate, but there’s something compelling about the gritty, dark RnB sound that comes out of this lady. Check out here.

A clever way to stop yourself from having a one-hit-wonder…

Kudos to Yolanda Be Cool for trying to move on from ‘We No Speak Americano‘. The song was huge globally when it was released  a couple of years ago, and not much has been heard from them since. So now they’re ‘recalling’ their single and replacing it with their new track. I love the idea. So here’s their new single:

Rise Up

I’ve got one long-ass stressful week ahead of me, and the only way I can get through it is by surrounding myself with positive music like this. It’s a remix of Sunkids’ ‘Rise Up’ by Mercury, and it’s a free download! So Happy Monday. Weekend’s almost here.

New Music: Noah Vinson

Smooth new hip hop with tons of class, reminiscent of early N*E*R*D. Check out here.

Sunday disco

A stomper of a track from a project by ABSOLUT featuring Little Dragon and Star Slinger.

New Music: Roses Gabor

Took me a while to get into this but I can’t stop bopping my shoulders from side to side when that weird chorus bit kicks in. Cool. Check out here.

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.

New Music: Bela Takes Chase

Airy, fresh-sounding electropop from Australia. Check out here.

Alpines – Chances (Cyril Hahn Remix)

I felt like sharing this Alpines remix by Cyril Hahn for a Saturday evening; it just seems perfect for this time of night.

New Music: NZCA/LINES

A fresh sound of futuristic pop by NZCA/LINES aka Michael Lovett. Check out here.

New Music: Great Caesar

So at first I pressed play and thought ‘no’, then the chorus kicked in and the full genius of this sound kicked in and I very quickly changed my mind to ‘yes’ for some reason. It’s a quirky, rocky sound that’s indescribable. But that’s a good thing sometimes. Check out here.
