It feels like an eternity since I last wrote a post… probably because it was. Definitely been good these last couple days actually finding time to check out some new (to me) music. Straight in to it I say…
Hannah Boleyn – When You Gone
It is no secret that I love big sounding retro soul and Hannah Boleyn delivers everything I love. Part Paloma Faith with a sprinkle of Winehouse this is a great little record. I can listen to this one over and over. Really looking forward to seeing her play and see what wonders she creates on stage.
Kid Astray – The Best of Us
Talking of addictive records, this summer tinged indie-pop gem is darn addictive too. It’s fun, dreamy and has a sound more refreshing than an ice-cold can of Rio. Kid Astray look like ones to watch for the future, I love to soft disco vibes to the record – one for the dance-floors definitely.
Lorde – Tennis Court
And now for something a little bit darker. Recently discovered Lorde and it seems I’m pretty late on her (seeing as most of her videos have 2m+ plays on YouTube – some things never change!). A strong brooding bass which hums wonderfully helps make the record so much moreish. She’s playing Madame JoJo’s on September 18th, should be a very special little show.
Ny – Shut it down
To call this a guilty pleasure would be to do it a disservice. It is just a screw-up your face, swing your arms around like a mad idiot kind of pleasure. The start is dancehall, then the drop… oh my word. Fro then on she doesn’t look back; this track is fierce!
