SPINDLE SELECTS: TRACKS OF THE WEEK

Thursday 15 March 2018
Words Alice Bell

All the best music from the last 7 days.

John Newman – ‘Fire In Me’

After 3 number 1 singles, John Newman went slightly off the radar for past 2 years. But now, he is back reclaiming the spotlight with his newest single, ‘Fire In Me.’  The new track displays what John does best, belting it out with a dance floor ready anthem. He also released a video with the track. In a recent statement, he said he will be bombarding us with new music so get ready for 2018.

The Knocks feat. Foster the People – ‘Ride or Die’

The Knocks and Foster the People’s new track, ‘Ride or Die,’ sounds like a preemptive summer song with the fun and catchy rhythm and the vocals from Mark Foster. The Knocks have also announced that they’re planning to release their second full-length album in the spring titled, New York Narcotic. 

Ciaran Lavery – ’13′

Ciaran Lavery has released ’13,’ the second single from the album ’Sweet Decay.’ This is a more upbeat track encompassing a wider array of instruments and rhythm, but also featuring his definitive vocals with themes of love and relationships. Lavery’s new album will be released on the 13th of April.

Youngr – ‘Ooh Lordy’

Youngr has released a remix package to his already jubilant single, ‘Ooh Lordy.’ He came out with an acoustic track, stripping down the beat to the simple and fun lyrics. In addition, he released a remix with Blinkie to create a more electroinca take on the song. This is a part of his new work, ‘This Is Not An Album,’ a collection of his releases up to date. 2018 is a big year for him including a US and Canadian tour as well as key support slots with Matoma on his ‘One In A Million’ tour.

 

Sango – ‘Khlorine’ ft. Smino

Creating an upbeat eclectic vibe right from the outset of this glossy tune Michigan producer Sango has previously proven himself as an effective producer initially building his career after being endorsed by Soulection Radio. Working in the past with highly acclaimed R&B acts including the likes of Tinashe and Bryson Tiller he now finds his ideal match with the buttery delivery of Chicago rapper Smino. We’ll be hoping to see more collaborations coming from these two in the near future.

Menke – ‘Moln-Alva Noto remodel’

With the original debut track from Menke nearing a million streams, it seems fitting that she teams up with Revenant musical composer Alva Noto. Creating an almost otherworldly experience throughout the track, Noto formulates a lulling production that is equally as relaxing as it is refreshing.

Hannah Jane Lewis – ‘Aftershock’ (acoustic)

Stripping away the infectious synth-pop sound that has brought the original to nearly 300K streams in just over 2 weeks, we are able to hear the beautiful vocals that stand at the core of the Surrey-born pop sensations core. Make sure to look out in the near future for one of electro-pop’s most brimming young talents.

Wood Chips – ‘Come Home’

Finding more influence in country-roots than previous release ‘Heartbeat’ Danish songwriter/producer Wood Chips displays the beauty in his struggle in the video for ‘Come Home’. Filmed in the woods surrounding his outpost in the Danish countryside, the video expresses how genuine in nature the record is, and features the inspiration of his musical transformation, his son Karlo.

Deva Mahal – ‘Fire’

Genre defying vocalist Deva Mahal apologizes to a past love in her cunningly emotional score ‘Fire’. Evoking emotion over a slow but powerful beat, Mahal shows her vocal versatility effortlessly all the while getting us incredibly excited that her debut full project, titled Run Deep is set to be released in only a week.

Hanne Leland – ‘Carry On’

Norwegian electro-pop vocalist Hanne Leland entered the music landscape in 2013, emerging with a country pop sound out of Nashville. Now coming into her own as an electro-pop art she has been able to effortlessly meld her sultry vocals with heartfelt lyrics to create her own path amassing over 3 million combined streams. On her latest single ‘Carry On’ she delivers an anthem about resilience in a worldwide time of struggle that is sure to radiate positivity in even the most dire of situations.
