Spindle Selects: Tracks of the Week

With Halloween on the horizon, here are 10 songs that have no Halloween relevance at all. Enjoy.

Kojey Radical – Gallons ft. PW & Sasha Keable

Another powerful visual from spoken word poet Kojey Radical, as he moves and explores through a distressed and dark London in his latest creation for ‘Gallons’. Kojey is fast becoming a one to watch with his exemplary execution of avant-garde cinematic style films, and with supporting verses from PW ‘Gallon’s is a raw and honest track which cements Kojey as a voice of our generation. With two MOBO nominations under his belt, we look forward to seeing what comes next from this East London talent.

Ariana and the Rose – Supercool (Toyboy & Robin remix)

Spindle favourite Ariana and the Rose has had quite the year! With a couple of glitter-tastic, electro-pop singles under her belt, the native New Yorker returns to form with the first taster of the brand new single ‘Supercool’. London duo Toyboy & Robin are responsible for this rework of the track, which is making us wish it was the weekend already.

Keroscene – I Can’t Do A Thing

Keroscene are David Troster, Francesco Bondi, Edd Wilding and Jake Sorbie. Formed in late 2014, the band combines elements of psychedelic with melody bound together in a neat contemporary approach of modern rock‘. I Can’t Do A Thing’ is the latest single from the London-based band quartet, who wield a distinct psychedelic sound with underlining hints of shoegaze rock.

Cris Cab – Together

A true co-sign from Pharrell Williams is a rare thing for an artist, but Miami-born singer/songwriter Cris Cab has not only managed that, but gotten the Grammy-award winning artist as executive producer of his whole of his upcoming sophomore album “New Beginnings”. The first teaser from that project is “Together” – a tropical-infused track that dances on one of the most unabashedly contagious baselines we’ve heard this year. Layered onto Cris’s vocals, it’s a joyous, sashaying thing that jumps and slinks, giving a throwback stance that recalls The1975 as well as Paul Simon.

A$AP Rocky – ‘Money Man’ / ‘Put That On My Set’

With the announcement of the highly anticipated ’Cozy Tapes Vol.1’ compilation mixtape due for release on the 31st of October. A$AP released a short film late last week directed by his creative collective AWGE. Filmed in London, it includes tracks ‘Money Man’ Ft A$AP Nast and ‘Put That On My Set’ Ft Skepta both from the mixtape. Stunningly filmed, it’s worth a watch!

Terror Jr – Super Powers

From making serious buzz with their track ’3 Strikes’ cleverly used by Kylie Jenner to promote her lip gloss range, ‘Super Powers’ is taken from their recently released dark-pop EP ‘Bop City’. The mystifying trio Terror Jr have got people wondering if the faceless female member named Lisa Terror is actually Kylie herself, but I guess all will be revealed in due time…

Drake – Fake Love

In the midst of Drake’s 30th birthday celebrations, he announced new project ‘More Life’ and released four new tracks (including ‘Fake Love’). Everyone who is anyone was in LA to celebrate with him on Monday, what a time to be alive.

Off Bloom – ‘Love To Hate It’

Copenhagen newcomers Off Bloom are a trio making punk-tinged fun pop to be filed next to MØ and Liss. ‘Love To Hate It’ is the title track off their upcoming debut EP, and comes complete with 2016-ready synths, a solid dance beat and that all important explosive pop chorus. Keep your eyes on these guys, they have all the ingredients to go far.

Run The Jewels – ‘Talk To Me’

It seems a new Run The Jewels album is on its way, and it can’t come soon enough. The two years since their last has seemed a lifetime, but ‘Talk To Me’ remedies this as a fresh burst of high octane energy set to boost you through the end of the week. Check out the track below, which comes through their Adult Swim Singles Program.

Abi Hudson – ‘Fragile Around You’

New favourite popstar alert! At the tender age of 18, Abi Hudson has been causing a stir with her debut single ‘Fragile Around You’. Crafted with those behind hits from Britney Spears, Girls Aloud, Kylie Minogue and more, all you can expect is pop perfect and Hudson delivers. It’s her unique voice that really grabs attention however; with shades of Stevie Nicks and Kate Bush.
