Maisie Peters – Stay Young
We all love to hit the re-fresh button when it reaches Friday and thankfully Masie Peters is here to rejuvenate us with her latest single ‘Stay Young’. Expect climactic positivity, inspiring you to want to keep your loved one close or finally put a dream you’ve had in mind a reality.
YUNGBLUD with Halsey feat. Travis Barker – 11 Minutes
For those who didn’t have a valentines this year, are going through a lovers spat or a hard heartbreak and need something to relate to, don’t worry YUNGBLUD has you covered. Working with the talented Halsey and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, ’11 Minutes’ is the modern love story making us grateful for what’s right infront of us instead of what could be.
Swimming Tapes – Pyrenees
Heavy night out incoming? We have just the ingredient to cure any hangover with Swimming Tapes new lead single ‘Pyrenees’. Expect a soft californian guitar atmosphere, velvity undertones and mellow drums. Perfect for that wake me up slowly kind of morning.
Stats – Raft
Big fan of Talking Heads? Love a track that gets you off your feet? Well Stats have just that, with their new single ‘Raft’ from their album ‘Other People’s Lives’. With a healthy amount of 80’s inspired synth, choir like backing vocals and feel-good drums this is a must listen.
SWMRS – Lose Lose Lose
It’s time to lose our minds and SWMRS are here to help, with their brand new track ‘Lose Lose Lose’ exploading into ear canals. Not only will this heart racing track soundtrack your weekend, it may just be perfect for your whole year. We’ve had the gentle, we’ve had the heartreaching and now it’s time for some goddamn classic Rock.
YONAKA – Bad Company
No matter the company you keep this weekend, YONAKA‘s new single will make you wish it was bad; if only to have this scorching new single on repeat. ‘Bad Company’ takes all the gruff punk raucousness of their Creature EP and spices it with absolute riffs galore. Trust us, it’s a massive tune.
Lizzo – Cuz I Love You
Oof. If you’re anything like us, you’ll pull this track right back from Lizzo‘s first soulful croon. Masterfully mashing-up hip-hop, soul and contemporary swing, ‘Cuz I Love You’ is an absolute sonic whirlwind that sounds almost like Missy Elliott decided to take some tips from Whitney Houston. Strong, sassy – and perfect for those post Valentine’s day blues.
Foals – On The Luna
Now there’s nothing that’ll send us over the moon quite like some new Foals, especially when it sounds this nice. ‘On The Luna’ is the Oxford indie favourites at their groove-soaked best. Tasty rock ‘n’ roll riffs, shimmering synth runs and that all round massive Foals sound we all know and love.
Rex Orange County – New House
Grab yourself a cuppa. It’s time to sit back, relax and have a beautifully lazy Sunday with Rex Orange County. The BBC Sound of 2018 nominee reminds us exactly why he took the coveted second spot with this enchanting blend of smooth sailing soul, folk, off-kilter electro and a little splash of rap-inflected poetry. Sound of 2018? We’re saying sound of 2019 too.
