Seeb x Bastille – ‘Grip’ (Jay Pryor Remix)

Notable for adding their Midas touch to other artists tracks, Norwegian heavyweights Seeb enlist the talents of Jay Pryor for a fresh new spin on ‘Grip’ — their collaborating single with Bastille. Electrifying from the off, the remix gradually raises the track to an energy level that cannot be topped.

Cage The Elephant – Ready to Let Go

Cage The Elephant have just announced the release of their fifth studio album, Social Cues, led by new single ‘Ready To Let Go. The band have had seven Billboard #1 singles with 11 singles landing in the Billboard Top 10 and digitally have a combined 1.5 billion streams worldwide.

Leah Capelle – Settle Down

Produced Jeff Bova, who has worked with the likes of Celine Dion, Michael Jackson, Blondie and Cyndi Lauper, ‘Settle Down’ is an expertly composed pop/rock ballad with a mission. As the song transitions from a late 80s vibe into an anthemic rock breakdown, we feel all the pain and questioning within Capelle. The ‘Settle Down’ video portrays the aching helplessness and disillusionment that Capelle and many others have felt too often. The video is truly a heart-wrenching, gorgeously executed piece of art where we see Capelle at her most vulnerable yet.

Maverick Sabre – Slow Down ft. Jorja Smith

The latest single from Irish artist Maverick Sabre sees him team up with long term collaborator and friend Jorja Smith on a stunning new visual shot by Rashid Babiker (‘On Your Own, Teenage Fantasy, Jorja Smith). Taken from his upcoming album ‘When I Wake Up’, March 22nd, the short film for ‘Slow Down’ is a lo-fi, hazy aesthetic, which sees the two characters share a moment of confession as Mav plays the role of a London cabbie, with Jorja stepping into his cab. Both of them play out their separate stories. We can’t wait to see what Mav’s full record will bring!

Ariana Grande needy

“Sorry if I’m up and down a lot, sorry that I think I’m not enough, and sorry if I say sorry way too much”. Ariana Grande has done it again with this unapologetic track. The beat is simple with harmonies out of this world and lyrics that are complex and beautiful. This song is a love letter to everyone that overthinks a relationship, to the girl or guy that may feel insecure about their emotions and the universal need to be blissfully in love.

You can’t help but feel the lyrics: “So you can’t argue, Karma’s coming for you, before you come knocking on my door, old tricks no you cannot fix, things that you did”.
