First Listen: Caught A Ghost ‘No Sugar In My Coffee’

Caught A Ghost

I have a fondness for this neo-soul act. It’s a sexy, perfected sound that still manages to sound pretty raw.  Caught A Ghost will release a special version of their debut EP ‘Nightworks’ on April 8th.


First Listen: Har Mar Superstar ‘Lady, You Shot Me’

har mar superstar

I’m a fan of Har Mar Superstar. His brand of pop is incredibly infectious, and although it’s not always amazing to listen to, every now and again he comes out with something huge like that puts a massive smile on my face.

Mutya Keisha Siobhan!

A little surprise for the afternoon courtesy of ex-Sugababes Mutya Keisha Siobhan. It’s a mash up between a new track and Kendrick Lamar’s Swimming Pools.

First Listen: Beatrice Eli ‘Violent Silence’

Another epic pop track from Swedish Beatrice Eli. Debut EP ‘It’s Over’ is out on March 24th.

First Listen: Mercedes ‘Cool For Me’

Mercedes singer

I’m not sure what I think of this new one from Mercedes. Maybe it’s because I haven’t heard anything quite like it. I think it’ll be a grower.

First Listen: Fou De Toi ‘Heartless’

Fou De Toi

I’m a little in love with this new track from Sweden’s Fou De Toi. It’s a cute little indie pop number.

First Listen: Lulu Rouge ‘Sign Me Out’

I don’t know much about Lulu Rouge but this Danish duo have come up with a seriously handsome piece of broody electropop.

First Listen: Saturday, Monday ‘The Ocean’ (feat. Julia Spada)

saturday monday ocean

This new track from Swedish electro outfit Saturday, Monday is a bit depressing but it’s also pretty nice to listen to.

First Listen: Fyfe ‘St Tropez’


I’ve rarely seen someone take the blogosphere by storm as much as I have with Fyfe. Anyway, he’s back with this gorgeous track which hops around playfully between the minimal and the epic.

First Listen: Dan Croll ‘Compliment Your Soul’

A new indie/ afrobeat sound for Dan Croll’s new track, out in April.

If you’re fancying a bit of British rock and roll, give this new EP from Misty Miller a spin. It’s out next week, and she’s giving away her cover of ‘Happy Together’ over here.

First Listen: Kleerup feat. Loreen ‘Requiem Solution’

kleerup loreen

A beautiful, epic and genius piece of Scandinavian music from Kleerup and Loreen.

First Listen: Grenades for the Wall ‘Fight Your Battles With Me’

grenades for the wall

Feels like a lifetime since I wrote about this Swedish band for the first time, but it looks like they’ve finally been snapped up by a label and are releasing this as a single. Good!

First Listen: Bombs & Bottles ‘I Will’

bombs and bottles

Not heard anything from Bombs & Bottles for a while but his brand of electropop is definitely becoming more epic and dramatic with this new track. If this sound carries on the way it’s going I definitely see it being something really beautiful and interesting.

First Listen: Justin Timberlake ‘Mirrors’ (or what I call, Cry Me Another River)

justin timberlake suit tie

I’m really feeling this new one from Justin Timberlake. There’s nothing new or edgy about it, it’s just good pop. I guess a little Timbaland isn’t so bad in 2013.

First Listen: Dida ‘No Hard Feelings’


New track from one of Sweden’s rising hip hop stars, Dida. This one plays with some of the vocals from ‘Hard’ by Rebecca & Fiona.

First Listen: Phil Beaudreau ‘This Is Why’ (Feat. Dawaun Parker)

Phil Beaudreau

A new cut from Phil Beaudreau, and one of my top tracks of the week (and month so far). I fell for this within the first two or three seconds.
