Friday 28 June 2019

Great Good Fine Ok – New Holiday

Great Good Fine Ok’s “New Holiday”, off their freshly dropped EP, is a synthpop dream. The Brooklyn based duo has a penchant for creating tracks that make you feel good and get you moving and “New Holiday” is no exception. With the flare of a ballad, the rhythm of an r&b jam, and vibe of an 80’s synth bop this latest track is a definite earworm and has all the marks of being a summer smash hit.

TRACE – Make Me Laugh

Alt-pop songstress TRACE has just released her latest single “Make Me Laugh.” Continuing with themes of self-reflection from her previous single, TRACE looks at the connections between humor and intimacy and not wanting to continue wasting your time without it in your life. Her dreamy voice dances over vintage tinged electro-pop beats creating an alluring and melancholic atmosphere. Her talent is undeniable and this latest release shows us that TRACE is an unstoppable force in music.

unperfect – I’m A Dreamer

The coolest girlband since Sugababes return with new single ‘I’m A Dreamer’, which is more pop- leaning than we’ve heard from unperfect previously. The single is part of the new Robinsons Fruit Shoot campaign, aimed to inspire younger generations to think big and reach for their dreams, which is an attitude that we can totally get onbard with. It’s set to be a big year for Xenomania’s newest protégé’s and we can’t wait to see what they do next.

Ida VallensMt.Whitney Motel

Having already seduced us with a wave of strong and provocative singles under her Mëi pseudonym, the Worthing-based singer and songwriter Ida Vallens now returns to her suitably sombre and forlorn aesthetic with the release of her latest single ‘Mt. Whitney Motel’. Continuing the tone of her previous singles ‘3 Star Hotel’ and ‘The Rapture’, this latest release proves to be one of her most eerie and heart breaking to date. With her haunting voice layered softly over a bed of lightly played piano keys, the single slowly introduces a atmospheric trip-hop-style production, only adding to the sombre and emotional energy of the release.
