Friday 31 August 2018

RazorlightOlympus Sleeping

Following a hiatus which spanned a decade, indie-rock elite Razorlight announced their official return this week with a release of four brand new singles, a new album on the way and a UK tour in December! Packed with electric energy that we know to love about the band, ‘Olympus Sleeping’ is definitely not one to be slept on.

Alex Aoino – Big Mistake

Singer/songwriter and YouTube sensation Alex Aoino returns with bittersweet break-up track ‘Big Mistake’. It’s a buoyant account of a relationship gone awry, that showcases his stunning vocals and ability to craft evocative pop music. With an upcoming album, and a sold out 2018 North Tour coming this winter, Alex proves he knows how to turn a big mistake around.


The verdict of the strategy meeting for the newly released ‘TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME’ video is clear – “who doesn’t love a good dance?”. It’s the most recent feel-good cut from the eagerly anticipated album ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’, and although it may not be groundbreaking, one thing is clear; millennial pink has never looked so good.

Bring Me The Horizon – MANTRA

…On a slightly less rosy note, come the lurid visuals for ‘MANTRA’. It’s the first taste of forthcoming album ‘Amo’ set to release early next year, coupled with cryptic viral marketing of opening line “Do you want to start a cult with me?”. It’s clear that Bring Me The Horizon mean business from the get go.

Grace Carter – Why Her Not Me

‘Why Her Not Me’ sees Grace Carter come for Adele’s betrayal anthem crown in a big way.  In a beautifully rousing display of prowess, Brighton-based Carter pours her heart with a stunning sense of dignity – watch out for this one sound-tracking an emotional downpour scene in the next big Blockbuster.

Nick Lopez – Words

With previous single ‘Carousel’ reaching number 2 on Soundcloud’s New & Hot chart and receiving support from heavyweights such as The Chainsmokers and Proximity, Nick Lopez has already secured his title as a force to be reckoned with. ‘Words’ is another lustrous production from the 21-year-old, with a relentlessly catchy chorus and innovative pop stylings.

Ben Hazlewood – Save Your Sorries

Melbourne based Ben Hazlewood has premiered his stunning visuals for ‘Save Your Sorries’ via Clash, bringing to life his empowering anthem. On the motivation behind ‘Save Your Sorries’, Hazlewood unflinchingly divulges his struggles coming to terms with his sexuality, stating “vulnerable and isolated I put trust in the wrong people, which unfortunately led to one of my first sexual experiences being a violent and non-consensual encounter. I have hid from and tried to ignore this for far too long. Today in releasing “Save Your Sorries” I am hurling it into the light, with a roar; as loud as thunder”.

Seinabo Sey – Good In You

From the sharp self-criticism of her 2015 critically acclaimed album ‘Pretend’, ‘Good In You’ is a wholesome, full-hearted stride in a new direction for Seinabo Sey.  It’s a single that radiates pure self-assured sunshine, the latest feel good banger in the run up to her sophomore album ‘I’m A Dream’ set to drop next Friday.
