All the best sounds of the last 7 days.
Ariana and the Rose – ‘For Your Love’
Ahead of her Light + Space immersive event on November 16th at House of Yes, Spindle fave Ariana and the Rose returns with new cut ‘For Your Love’ just in time for party season! The new single follows the critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Retrograde’, and is another captivating pop masterpieces. The compelling track instantly hooks you with Ariana’s mesmerising falsetto that echoes above a deep electro synth-pop production, which transcends into a riveting chorus. Ariana and The Rose is set to end the year on a stratospheric high as she gears up to release even more music in 2018.
:PM – ‘Goodbye’
Ending what has been a triumphant year, Northern newcomers :PM are back with a new track, which follows on from debut single ‘Grown Ups’. Although not an official single, ‘Goodbye’ is the B-side to their first release and has been shared as a “Thank You” to their hardcore fanbase until their second single is released in 2018. Still heaving with charisma and mischief, ‘Goodbye’ is slightly tamer than it’s predecessor but nonetheless infectious. We can’t wait to see what these boys have in store for us next year.
Cameron Bloomfield – ‘Change’
Cameron Bloomfield released his slick debut EP ‘The Night Before’ last Friday, and the long-awaited EP comes as a collection of songs that goes through different situations that happens on eventful nights out. Taking elements of funk, soul, jazz, R&B and pop to create a stunning five track project, this is only the very beginning of so much more to come from the young rising star.
RHEA – ‘Views’
From London to Spain to California, this singer-songwriter has experienced it all and her music expresses just that. RHEA’s new song ‘Views’ shows the progression of her music in a much bolder direction with more techno beats. However, she stays true to her roots with jazzy vocals which sets her apart from the rest. RHEA is currently working on the release of her debut EP and we can’t wait to hear it!
Keeper – ‘Pretty Baby’
From Austin, Texas these three talented singer-songwriters make up the band, Keeper. Their sound is electrifyingly unique which they define as ‘synth-soul.’ Together, they harmonize effortlessly into one powerful voice. ‘Pretty Baby’ is their latest single which tells the story of someone who has individuality instead of conforming to others. This track is produced by BoomBaptist who gave the song a 90’s electronic spin.
WALK THE MOON- ’Kamikaze’
‘Kamikaze’ is WALK THE MOON’s fourth release from their upcoming album, ‘What if Nothing’ which drops tomorrow. The track gives off a darker vibe than their previous singles, as lead singer, Petricca sings “I’m chasing down my demons, I can hear them breathing”. The chorus is addictive and energetic in typical WALK THE MOON nature. The band will be heading on tour in a few weeks in the US and they will be coming to the UK next year. Get ready!
David Guetta, Afrojack, Charli XCX & French Montana – ‘Dirty Sexy Money’
We understand if you weren’t quite ready to like a David Guetta song, but ‘Dirty Sexy Money’ is coming for you regardless. A super-charged collab with Afrojack, Charli XCX and French Montana, it’s an unadulterated pop smash with bells and whistles. Charli XCX can do no wrong lately it’s her star turn on the chorus that drives the high-octane addictiveness.
IDER – ‘Body Love’
Rising UK duo IDER are back with a shimmering new single, the divine ‘Body Love’, and if you thought the pair’s harmonies couldn’t get any better prepare to be proved wrong. ““The song accidentally became a bit of a journey for us, because we wrote it over a period of time. It started with the end of a relationship and expresses all of the doubt and loneliness that comes with that. Towards the end however, there’s a sense of acceptance and strength that appears which has actually become the purpose of the song for us. It’s kind of a ‘thank you for breaking my heart’ sort of thing,” the pair say.
Young Fathers – ‘Lord’
The very excellent Young Fathers return with the first track from their upcoming third album and it’s gorgeous. The Edinburgh trio won the acclaimed Mercury Music Prize with their debut album, ‘Dead’, and sophomore album ‘White Men Are Black Men Too’ went on to achieve similar critical acclaim. If ‘Lord’ is anything to go by, it seems their heading in the same direction once again.
