THE SUNS BLARING AND THE TUNES ARE FLOWING, YOU’RE IN FOR A RIGHT TREAT WITH THIS WEEK’S FRIDAY FAVOURITES.
Ezra Furman – Devils Haircut
Kick starting that friday feel good is Ezra Furman’s take on Beck’s ‘Devil Haircut.’ Energetic and you can taste the coffee pouring off of it. Arrangement is filled with wonders of Jack White’s familiarity mixed with Ezra’s own flavour. Definition of evil vanity but is portrayed like a glamorous angel that’s found themselves on earth.
Nilufer Yanya – Tears
Second release of the year for the London based songwriter, Nilufer Yanya. Fresh song structure uplifts the ‘Tears’ from her cheeks. It has an 80’s sounding production which seems to be in the limelight quite a fair bit recently. Modulation of the track is really something special. Going out tonight? Put this song on while getting ready, you’ll end up dancing around your bedroom.
Clean Cut Kid – I Don’t Like You But I Love You
Memorable to say the least. You won’t be getting this out of your head any time soon. The single dropped yesterday and has already been on repeat around the office. Wonderfully crafted harmonies blend over the 2:29 minute track. They fit a lot in the track in such a small amount of time and will get you dancing before you’re even intoxicated.
MØ – Theme Song (I’m Far Away)
MØ follows no rulebook when songwriting and the Danish pop songstress has dropped the exhilarating new single today. Part of the soundtrack for upcoming series Moominvalley, colours are thrown around like a vibrant canvas that attracts your attention in an art gallery. First release since her astonishing debut album, it’s great to have her back.
Circa Waves – Times Won’t Change Me
Indie rock band Circa Waves have circulated our ears since their groundbreaking double single “Get Away/Good For Me.” Featuring a Scissor Sisters esque piano rhythm and melody, the band have dived into a original sound for 2019 with Times Won’t Change Me. Sounds like they’re taking a more simple pop arrangement approach in this track, wonder where it may lead them too…
Vistas – Eighteen
Big sound for the trio from Edinburgh. Indie infused with pop is definitely at it’s peak and ‘Eighteen’ completely confirms that. Catchy melodies and a strong rhythm behind it, what’s not to like? Definitely going to be a strong contender if you see them live. Jumping around dancing to this may be the solution to liven up your day. Try it.. we dare you!
Rhys Lewis – Hold On To Happiness
Holding on to the happy moments with Rhys Lewis’ warming song. Sometimes we just need to mellow out and chill and this really is the perfect song to do so. Time flies past and we all end up taking different directions to where we thought we’d go, but best direction? listen to the track and you’ll understand.
Slowthai – Peace of Mind
English rapper from Northampton is relatable and that can be lost big time within music nowadays. Peace of Mind cuts through honesty and reflects the rawness of our thoughts. Preaching to fans to find their feet and to be themselves, he’s turning into a role model for a generation.
The Pale White – Medicine
Loving how the artwork is a prescription. It’s not just about the song sometimes, you need a cool image to reflect it. Trio from Newcastle, The Pale White deliver a thunderous rhythm section through new track “Medicine.” Becoming a living drug that we need daily, take your meds, i.e; listen to the track..
