Spindle Selects: Tracks of the Week

Thursday 21 June 2018

SAATSUMA – ‘Overflow’

SAATSUMA is the Melbourne-based collaborative project of producers and composers Memphis LK and Cesar Rodrigues. Their sound is a clean and perfectly melancholy electro pop offering that works with the concept of less is more, an aperture shared by phonetically similar artists Wet, Made in Heights and The Japanese House. The duo bring attention to the titular track of the new album Overflow with a video offering that encapsulates the mood of the music. Musically it deals with dark themes of losing control, and it’s easy to get swept away into the music – giving time for a haunting yet pensive moment for the listener.

Kojey Radical – ‘Water (If Only They Knew’

Another cinematic masterpiece by UK rapper Kojey Radical – and an extended version! Kojey, who is one of the most prominent voices in UK rap right now has delivered yet another stunning visual which encompasses both tracks he has released this year; the harder, menacing IF ONLY and his softer cut with soul singer Mahalia’, Water. The short film, by MOS Popular Human is a beautiful yet poignant journey through both of these tracks and positions him further as a true creative within his scene.

Hannah Jane LewisFrozen Frames

Hannah Jane Lewis’ wholehearted love for pop as an art-form is evident in her ability to craft glistening tracks such as latest single Frozen Frames. Following from previous releases, Frozen Frames features sparkling production and lustrous vocals that deserve your undivided attention. With upcoming support gigs for the likes of Jess Glynne and Rita Ora, it’s clear there are big things to come for Lewis.

Sigala / Fuse ODG & Sean Paul ft. Kent Jones – Feels Like Home

Summer 2018 truly is the Summer of Sigala, with another blistering anthem Feels Like Home. A collaboration with Fuse ODG, Sean Paul & Kent Jones, the track comes as a celebration of culture, abundant in calypso synth beats and festival style horns. With 6 UK Top 10 singles – 10 million worldwide sales and over 1 billion Spotify streams under his belt, Sigala has spent the last 12 months performing in front of some of his biggest audiences to date and shows no signs of losing pace.

Rebecca Garton – Always

Throwback to Summer 2015 and you may remember her appearance on Krept & Konan’s record-breaking debut album ‘The Long Way Home’; Rebecca Garton returns to the spotlight on her own terms with the incandescent single Always. The accompanying visuals are a vibrant homage to 90’s culture, showing Garton adorned in an array of throwback attire.

Troye Sivan (feat. Ariana Grande) – Dance To This

Two of Pop’s biggest divas teamed up to make the latest Summer jam. Dance To This is the latest single off of Troye’s upcoming album Bloom. The track is filled with the perfect mix of Troye’s calm tone followed by Ariana’s powerful vocals. Troye is due to release his sophomore album in August, so it looks like you’ll have to patiently wait till then for the rest of his tracklist.

Martin Garrix (Feat. Khalid) – Ocean

Since Khalid popped up in the music scene last year he has taken it by storm. Recently he has teamed up with DJ superstar Martin Garrix to make Ocean, a more tame dance track compared to the rest of his roster. Since its release, Ocean has been ranked in the top 20 on Apple music and is continuing to climb the charts. Go ahead and give this new track a listen, you won’t regret it.

5 Seconds of Summer – Valentine

5 Seconds of Summer have been on a hiatus the last couple of years but now they have come back with a brand new sound and album to follow. Valentine is the fourth track on the album following their hit singles Youngblood and Want You Back. The song is a bit edgier compared to the rest of the album but it still fits in with the innovative sound the group has developed for themselves. Click the link below to check it out.
