Spindle Selects: Tracks of the Week

Our weekly list of what you should be putting in your ears over the next 7 days.

Wretch 32 ft Emeli Sandé – I.O.U

Leading up to his next album release scheduled for September, Wretch brings us his latest track featuring the one and only Emeli Sandé – does this hint new music from her soon? Let’s hope. Lyrically compelling and devoted to his big sister, a thank you.  We are excited to hear the full album once out!

Nipah Ft ItsNate – Cupid Shot Me

Coming from her selftitled EP, London-based singer Nipah brings us this sultry winner making us believe that ‘love at first sight’ isn’t dead. It will be great to see what’s next to come from her.

Izzy Bizu – Lost Paradise
This stunning track creates more anticipation for her debut album ‘A Moment of Madness’ which will be released in September. You’ll definitely get lost in her captivating vocals.

Mhairi – Clarity
After the huge success of her debut single ‘Crystalline’, Mhairi is back with a beautiful new single ‘Clarity’. This multi-instrumental electronica pop song is the perfect blissed-out summer soundtrack. You’re welcome.

Danny L Harle – Supernatural feat. Carly Rae JepsenAfter months of teasers Danny L Harle finally dropped his collab with Carly Rae Jepsen and we’re OBSESSED. It’s springy, plastic pop perfection and a departure from CRJ’s E.MO.TION.  The Bradley & Pablo directed video neatly mimics the aesthetics of an HGTV property-porn show, but good luck figuring out what it means.

Stooshe – Let It Go (White N3rd Remix)

Stooshe are back, though they never really went anywhere did they? Following on from their last single ‘Lock Down’, the trio are soundtracking our summer with new smash hit ‘Let It Go’ and it’s equally tropical video, shot in Italy. If you fancy something a little harder for the weekend then check Mancunian producer White N3rd’s spin on the track.

Ellie Goulding – Still Falling For You

Ellie Goulding is attempting to top her Fifty Shades of Grey hit ‘Love Me Like You Do’ with ‘Still Falling For You’ – recorded for new movie Bridget Jones’s Baby. With a rousing chorus that’ll surely take it to the top, it’s been on the office stereo all week.

Jeremih – ‘London’ feat. Stefflon Don and Krept & Konan

In July, Jeremih dropped a surprise online mixtape, ‘Late Nights: Europe’, with each track named after a location he visited on his first European headline tour. With the Late Nights series (including the ‘Late Nights’ mixtape and ‘Late Nights: The Album’) one of the most critically acclaimed R&B threads in recent years, the new release did not disappoint. Now receiving an official global release, the mixtape is led with the single ‘London’, featuring Stefflon Don and Krept & Konan. Here at Spindle we’re a bit obsessed with Stefflon Don; the rising UK rapper is straight fire and bad ass attitude. Here she sings a hook of “you have to marry my nana before I ride the banana” in a Jamaican lilt, it’s not to be missed.

James Hersey – ‘Miss You’

New Glassnote Records signing James Hersey is the definition of one to watch. With debut single ‘Miss You’ released days ago, it’s already racked up over half a million plays on Spotify. With co-production from Will Hicks (Ed Sheeran) and mixed by the same man behind Sam Smith, Disclosure and Kwabs, ‘Miss You’ is clearly destined for greatness. Of course it’s delicious chill synths, finger snaps and James’ gorgeous emotionally inflected vocal doesn’t hurt.

Frenzy – ‘Chess Moves’

Rising East London MC Frenzy has a talent for marrying UK hip hop with a diverse array of sounds. Currently mid-way through releasing a string of summer singles, ‘Chess Moves’ is the third track to be put online by the rapper, and it finds Frenzy’s breezy flow laid over eerie synths and hard beats before – hold up – the track completely switches direction a la Drake.
