New Music: Vanessa White

Vanessa White is also part of The Saturdays but this is a massive departure from the band’s sound. It’s a cute throwback 90’s vibe.

Interview: Quickfire with MNEK

You probably know who MNEK is by now, I’ve mentioned him on here a couple of times because he’s pretty awesome. He’s basically like a pop child prodigy. I had the opportunity to shoot some questions at him, and he had the opportunity to shoot some answers back…

MNEK… hello… how are you right now?

How’s the response been to your new single?
Good, thankfully. I got mistaken for Paije Richardson again, though.

When did you start writing your tunes?
I was 9.

How did you end up working with the Saturdays on ‘All Fired Up’?
Two words. Brian Higgins.

Are you writing stuff for any other stars?
I write for moons :)

What’s next?
Much more!!!!
And that’s it. Told ya it was quickfire. On another note, his twitter gives me jokes.

First Watch: MNEK ‘If Truth Be Told’

I’ve been a bit obsessed with MNEK for a while now. Anyway, this song is not new, but it’s been reworked and is getting a proper release that an amazing tune like this deserves. He’s also co-written current crazy hit ‘All Fired Up’ by The Saturdays which is top 10 in the UK charts at the moment.

You know what I like about him? He puts enough fun in his pop without it sounding like something out of a CBeebies show. Check him out!

New Music: Elsie

Blondie inspired disco rock with catchy guitar hooks, thumping beats and a distinctive vocal. Championed by the likes of Jim Lowe (Stereophonics) who also produced the album, Par Westerlund (The Wanted, The Saturdays), Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith/ Foreigner) and Ian Barter (Amy Winehouse). I personally think the video montage thing is mighty cheesy but if you like the song you can download a free copy on her Facebook here.

First Watch: The Saturdays ‘All Fired Up’

This, in my view, is the best mainstream pop song coming out of the UK this year so far. And to think I hated The Saturdays when they first came out…
