One of my favourite new tracks from this month (and trust me, I hear a LOT of stuff every week…) this is the new Man Like Me single, produced by ex-The Streets‘ Mike Skinner. Single’s out May 28th. The band will play a special one-off launch show at London’s Dingwalls on May 24!
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’.
It’s been a year since this guy’s debut track- and now he’s back with this epic slice of pop, and it’s only a demo. Exciting.
The Draymin formed in 2005, are influenced by bands such as The Verve, The Stone Roses, Radiohead and 90’s dance records. They work from ‘The Hut’ in their hometown of Rosyth, Scotland – a wooden garage in their back garden, which they built themselves to allow them the space, time and freedom to piece their music together.
The album features their ‘underground’ single Heart Attack, which was championed by BBC Radio Scotland and XFM Scotland, and will be released on 2 April 2012 through Townsend Records. The album will be released digitally and physically, with the CD featuring two additional bonus tracks. The band will sign the first 300 copies of the CD that are sold.
This seems to be Scissor Sisters’ new single. Produced by the radio-loving Calvin Harris, I’m not really sure what to think of it but its pleasant enough.
What a grim day it is in London today! Hopefully this new track from one of my favourite electropop newcomers will cheer things up. April 20th is the date of the release of their debut album on Riot Factory.
I really didn’t think I would like Tulisa’s debut solo track. But I did. It’s nothing edgy or too cool, just good radio pop!
There’s been some buzz for this kid for a while now so it’s nice to hear some new stuff. It’s turning out to be a very Pop kinda week on here which is cool. This has Beyonce all over it.
The Kill Van Kulls are back with a new EP.
Some cute new music from Barry Southgate.
I love this band. This is beautiful, and I think it’s probably going to help everyone on this Monday morning. ‘Shine On You’ is due for release on April 16th via Killing Moon Limited/Beatwolf Records.
New music from Estelle.
This remix is special because it’s done by the same chap who directed the video to the same song.
