Lolo’s got yet another stomper of a pop track.


First Listen: Admirers ‘Return’

admirers band

I think it’s pretty hard not to enjoy this track from Admirers. It’s as catchy as pop gets and has a pretty camp undertone which is fun.

First Listen: Bo Saris ‘The Addict’

I’m a sucker for this kind of soul. Bo Saris is back with a new track, out September 16th.

First Listen: Alex Clare ‘Where Is The Heart’

Alex Clare is one of those stories that makes me happy. So much talent and completely unrecognised, right up until this ad came out and turned him from a quiet star into someone amassing over 300k likes on Facebook.

First Listen: Club Smith ‘The Green Room (Dave Bascombe/ Lance Thomas Mix)’

Indie rock and electro serve as the base for this version of Club Smith’s new track.

First Listen: Raleigh Ritchie ‘Stay Inside’

After causing a storm on the blogs earlier this year, Raleigh Ritchie delivers with another slice of RnB pop perfection.

First Listen: Strangers ‘No Longer Lost’

strangers band

I’ve frequently featured Strangers on here, and that’s because they always come up with some big pop show stoppers like this one.

First Listen: Daniel James ‘A Lonely Man’

Daniel James‘ new track plays with a mix of indie, folk and gospel. Really interesting and nice sound.

First Listen: MDNGHT ‘Into The Night EP’


One of my favourite bands out of 2013 have been streaming their new EP on the web since yesterday and it’s delicious. The release is on the 29th September. This will blow your mind.

First Listen: Saint Motel ‘Just My Type’

saint motel

I blogged about this band back in February 2012 and haven’t really heard much since, probably due to my own ignorance. Anyway, they’re looking to go big in the UK, and with a track like this, it might just take off… They are heading over for a a tour in September.

First Listen: Icona Pop ‘All Night’

Undoubtedly the biggest Scandinavian success story of the year, Icona Pop are back with a new single. They’ve been through so much to get to this point, and I’m so glad for them.

First Listen: Sam Smith ‘Safe With Me’

sam smith singer

A beautiful, epic track from someone who is going to blow up the pop world so hard.

First Listen: Emily Kay ‘Soldier’

Today was one of those day at work (i.e. ‘the office’) when it just couldn’t get any busier than it did. And then it got even more busy. So it’s a relief to have got this come through my inbox this evening. Anyway, enjoy the quirky and lovely sound of this new one from Emily Kay.

First Listen: Daley ‘Broken’

daley singer

Daley’s really coming up with some big RnB sounds of late. I’ll be very upset if this single doesn’t hit top 5. Huge track… Absolutely huge.

First Listen: Lolo ‘Heard It From A Friend’

Pow! One of the biggest tracks this week for sure. It was recorded in Los Angeles and co-produced by Mark Batson (from Dr. Dre and Eminem credits). Loving this Lolo.
