I don’t know much about Filur but they seem to be big in their native Denmark- I just love the song (when it kicks in at the 2:45 mark). Check out here.
One of my favourite songs by this duo. They’ve announced a tour for the autumn (so like… now). Check out here.
This has to be absolutely my favourite song of the month. Previously featured on here back in March this year, this is the new single from Maverick Sabre. It’s a boy version of Adele and Amy. This is TALENT.
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!
Check out the new video from Denmark’s ‘The New Spring’.
This is it- Amy’s last recording. Single’s out today on iTunes. Buy it and remember the greatness that was Amy Winehouse, and to support the new Foundation set up in her name which was also launched today- what would have been Amy’s birthday (the single’s proceeds will go towards it). She looks stunning. I wrote a post a while ago about how important Amy’s music was (and still is) so special to me- read it here if you like.
I’ve already featured Alex Boyd previously on here, and this is his new video. I really can’t wait for the rest of the world to catch up with this guy- he’s just too good!
Justice are back! This is from their upcoming album, out in October. I’ve been throwing myself into French electro this year a lot, specially Ed Banger stuff. Exciting.
With the X Factor wheel in full motion in the UK, last year’s winner has released a video to his new ‘proper’ single. It doesn’t sound like anything from any of the previous X Factor winners in Britain. I don’t know what I think of it to be honest but kudos for bucking the trend.
Nicola Roberts, one-fifth of Girls Aloud, didn’t make as much of a splash on the fickle world of British pop earlier this year with her Diplo-produced debut, Dance To The Beat Of My Drum. This is her second go at selling some records.
It carries that same vein of ‘can’t be bothered to belt out some chords’ vibe which she seems to be carving out to be her sound. She was always the underdog in the Girls Aloud-do-solo-projects race, but she’s being the most original so far. I approve.
Mini-country heart throb Scotty McCreery won the most recent version of American Idol, and this is his debut. You forget that this voice belongs to a SEVENTEEN year old. Nuts. I sort of like it!
Here’s a first watch for Oh Land’s new single, White Nights. Quirky, eclectic, stylish, cool… etc…
Sexy, sultry sounds from Joan as Police Woman’s new single, Chemmie (out August 1st) – I must admit I didn’t know who she was before watching this video but I kinda like her!
