Back in August 2010 I mentioned Sunday Girl and anticipating big things for this very talented Londoner. Anyway, I guessed right- if this song is anything to go by. It gives me memories of listening to one of my favourite 90’s summer songs, Karen Ramirez’s ‘Looking For Love’. Listen to more here.
This has been huge in her native Sweden, and it’s a bit weird for me why she’s still only getting an underground buzz over here in the UK. But then again Robyn took a really long time before she blew here, so I hope the same kicks for Tove Styrke. Cos she’s frickin’ good.
“Goth Pop’ Visions of Trees create a haunting and penetrating sound that takes advantage of the sonic freedom afforded by electronic music to simultaneously evoke the alienation of urban life and the austerity of nature.”
I featured Lovelle back in May, and now she’s back with this catchy bit of summer house with Ray Foxx. Out on 25 September on Defected.

It’s not out til September but this should keep you going til then. I didn’t think Example could sound better than his last effort but it sounds killer.
They’re back! A darker sound to their usual stuff- it’s been eight years since Blink-182 released a single and this is a welcome return!
Get People are one of my favourite bands this year. “Picking up where last year’s Careless/Odyssey double A-side left off, Get People’s sophomore EP release Rain Tears is another slice of infectious, intelligent pop music. Rain Tears will be released on Friends vs Records on July 11th 2011.”
Let’s be clear about this – I despised Cher Lloyd from the start on the X Factor. I found her cocky, ridiculously tacky and annoying. That said, I like this track. I know it samples ‘Oh My Darling Clementine‘ and forces in just about every current pop genre in a couple of short minutes but its a hot mess I’m enjoying listening to. I’m sorry. Listen to it here.
Update: Little brat’s pissed off the song’s leaked, ‘”I’ve never been this upset ever!” Lloyd tweeted following the leak. “I worked so hard, and people wanna ruin it for me, if you wanted to hurt me you’ve done a great job (sic).
“please dont do this to me. i wish i was at home with my family, i’ve been through enough this year. me and my brats are stronger than this!! come onnnn! lets get em !!!!”
I’d be a bit glad to know people can’t wait to hear my music but whatever…
I know, a lot of people will look down on this single but for what it’s worth, this is about as edgy as mainstream pop is in the UK right now- and it’s actually a lot of fun. Produced by Diplo and Dimitri Tikovoi. She was always the odd one out from Girls Aloud, and this single is pretty left field compared to what the other girls have done with their solo stuff. And dare I say, I see small hints of Robyn in there too. Check out here.
I mentioned this Norwegian group some time ago and this is their new single. I don’t think you can find any flaws in this perfect piece or electropop with a big throwback to trip hop.
Sun drenched, idyllic, blissful sound coming from Friendly Fires‘ forthcoming album, Pala. This must be the best album of the year I reckon. It’s sounding amazing so far. Check out the Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs remix here.
Neon Hitch was one of the first artists featured on this blog, and this is her second single. It’s dirty.
