One of my favourites from this year, Jess Mills has a new, beautiful single out soon, and this is a preview.
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!
I’m a huge fan of this guy- he released a single a while back and was featured on here but he’s gone on to make a big success of himself writing tracks for, amongst others, The Wanted– who are now a household name pretty much all over the world. So it’s exciting to see more of Ed Drewett!
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’.
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.
