Sorry – “Lies”
PRETTYMUCH – “No More” feat. French Montana
PRETTYMUCH are about to become your new favourite boyband. Seriously. Simon Cowell’s newest US signing, the quintet have already dropped previous tracks “Open Arms”, “Teacher” and “Would You Mind”, but their most recent banger “No More” is definitely the best so far. Featuring French Montana, it’s genuinely a massive tune and will have you becoming a self-confessed member of BEANZ (if you know, you know) in no time.
ShitKid – “Oh Me I’m Never”
Swedish artist Åsa Söderqvist – aka ShitKid – is the “anti-popstar” of your dreams. Embracing an I-don’t-give-a-fuck attitude that I’m sure we can all relate to on a cold Tuesday afternoon, her latest drop “Oh Me I’m Never” is a taste of her forthcoming EP “This Is It” and it’s grungy and fantastic. The kind of track that you need to play as loud as possible, regardless of what your neighbours say, we can’t wait to see what she’s gonna do next.
Spector – “Untitled In D”
Spector are back and our skin is clear, our grades are up and our crops are flourishing. Dropping the first track from their upcoming EP “Ex-Directory”, new song “Untitled In D” is the witty piece of indie rock magic that we’ve been missing in our lives. “’Untitled In D’s been burning a hole in Spector’s pocket for a little while now.” Lead babe Fred Macpherson says. “I wrote the bones of it pretty quickly then Jed came through and channelled the ghost of John Frusciante on guitar and we knew we were on to something. After the sheen of our first two albums it was exciting capturing something simple and irreverent – the sound of us playing in a room rather than playing in a computer.”
Bahamas – “Way With Words”
Giving us a second teaser of his upcoming LP Earthtones, Bahamas – aka Afie Jurvanen – has dropped the beaut new track “Way with Words”. The follow up to his previous song “No Wrong”, “Way with Words” is a chilled-out, sunshine-soaked number that’ll have you dreaming of poolside margaritas almost instantly. An exciting look at what the forthcoming fourth record will be like, Bahamas is destined to blow us away.
Bobii Lewis – “Show Me the Way”
North London native Bobii Lewis is back with another banger. Showing exactly why he’s being hailed as one of the most interesting new R&B acts around, “Show Me the Way” is a tropical-tinged masterpiece, highlighting Bobii’s brilliant vocals and unique take on hip-hop. Certain to have you dancing along as soon as you here it, if this is any indication of what he’s got in store for next year, it’s clear Bobii is gonna be big.
O-SHiN – “Walking Water”
After moving to a cabin in the Swedish countryside – you know, as you do – O-SHiN found inspiration in the nature that surrounded her. Now seeing the manifestation of that inspiration, she recently dropped her latest piece of alt-pop perfection, “Walking Water”. Full of wonky melodies and O-SHiN’s wonderfully weird vocals, it’s an absolutely beautiful track about taking risks and believing that even the impossible can happen.
Mint Field – “Ojos En El Carro”
Mexican duo Mint Field have dropped their haunting first track from their debut album Pasar De Las Luces and it’ll make you feel things. Combining supernatural rhythms with spine-tingling vocals, “Ojos En El Carro” is a spooky and sublime look at what 21-year-olds Estrella Sanchez (vocals and guitar) and Amor Amezcua (drums and synths) can do.
Alayna – “Bliss”
Alayna has arrived with a slinky pop number to warm you up on this cold December day. Doing just what it says on the tin, “Bliss” is absolute bliss. “I wanted to find a way to articulate the personal, intimate feeling of being completely at ease.” Alayna says, “Bliss feels like a sigh, a softening of shoulders and a comfort in a moment with someone. Bliss feels like pure, real love.” A stunning slice of R&B, get ready to be playing this on repeat for a long, long time.
