With a bit of soul to lighten up your Monday morning, Brighton based babe Lily Moore has dropped her latest track “17”. Showing off her stunning jazz-tinged smokey vocals, it’s the second track – following the brilliant “Not That Special” – to come from her upcoming debut EP out next month. An absolute sizzler, it’s an exciting look at what she’s going to wow us with next.
Your weekly dose of bops, belters and bangers.
Lily Moore – “17”
Panic! At The Disco – “Say Amen (Saturday Night)”
The source of all our emo-phases crushes, Panic! At The Disco are back and life is fucking good. Spoiling us last week, they unveiled two tracks, a very gory video and announced their new album. “After being away in New York for months doing Kinky Boots, I just wanted to hang out at home when I got back to LA. I was so revved up that I asked some friends to come over to my home studio to help me write about all the incredible things I’ve experienced the last couple of years,” say Brendon Urie, Panic! At The Disco frontman and number one hon. “Pray For The Wicked is my ‘thank you’ to our fans and the most fun I’ve ever had making album.”
Joel Baker – “CMWIF” feat. Mahalia
Sometimes you get a song which is just an absolute ~vibe~ and this is it. The latest from Joel Baker, “Catch Me When I Fall” is a gorgeous track featuring Wonderbabe Mahalia. Full of hypnotic and beautiful melodies, it comes from Joel’s latest EP “The Dreamers” which was released last week. If you’re missing the weekend chills, this is one for you.
George Ezra – “Shotgun”
It’s no shock that we are huge fans of Young Geoff over here so obviously we’ve got to include one from his, frankly, sublime new album Staying At Tamara’s which came out on Friday. Although every track is fucking incredible, “Shotgun” takes the number one spot as the biggest banger on the album. But if you won’t take our word for it, listen to Wonderland fave Lewis Capaldi who tweeted “shotgun by george ezra is a fucking belter” on Friday. You’re not wrong, Lewis. You are not wrong.
Snail Mail – “Pristine”
The name Snail Mail has been buzzing around for quite some time now and it’s clear to see why. Announcing her debut album Lush last week, 18-year-old singer-songwriter Lindsey Jordan is an absolute force to be reckoned with. Releasing her latest cut “Pristine” as well, it’s a beaut track which sees her tackling unrequited love and further proof that Snail Mail is set for greatness.
Let’s Eat Grandma – “Falling Into Me”
Announcing their second album I’m All Ears, Let’s Eat Grandma – aka Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth – have given us a little taste of what we can expect with newbie “Falling Into Me”. A ferocious piece of pop, it’s an unapologetic anthem about facing your fears. “It’s about communication.” Jenny explains. “Some of the lyrics reference being in control as a woman in a romantic relationship, and being the one to initiate. So you’re the person who tells them that you like them, you’re taking the initiative. It’s the importance of if you feel something, tell them. Because you don’t know what’s going to happen in life, you might as well just do it.”
RAYE – “Cigarette” feat. Mabel & Stefflon Don
TBH, you can’t have RAYE, Mabel and Stefflon Don on a track and it do anything but slap. Undoubtedly three of the biggest upcoming artists the UK has to offer atm, “Cigarette” is a dance-floor destined bop that’ll have you moving along to the beat as soon as it kicks in. Taken from RAYE’s upcoming project which is set to blow our minds in the upcoming months, keep your eyes locked on these gals because they’re something special.
Shawn Mendes – “In My Blood”
Once again proving why he is pure perfection, Shawn Mendes has returned with his latest song “In My Blood” and we’re obsessed. His first new music in nearly a year (A WHOLE YEAR SHAWN!), it’s an anthemic track with some of his most vulnerable and honest lyrics to date. The first taste of his highly-anticipated third album, if you’re not already in love with him you’re about to be.
Boy Pablo – “Losing You”
19-year-old Pablo Muñoz – or Boy Pablo as he’s better known – is back with his latest slice of dazzling pop “Losing You”. Documenting that feeling “when a girl doesn’t love a guy back, but he ‘knows’ that she wants him – it’s really weird and messed up,” it’s a beaut bop that glistens and delights with every listen. Taken from his new EP, we can’t wait to see what else he’s got in store.
