She was featured in our Summer 17 issue and now Madison Beer is back with an emotional ballad. Singing over mostly piano, Beer offers a reflection into her world, showcasing a different side to the 21-year-old pop singer. She opens up about scrutiny and her metal health, belting out “Cause you will never know what I been through” on the opening verse. The candid track is accompanied by an atmospheric music video that is pure weekend vibes.
It’s all about new music and good energy on this week’s playlist.
Madison Beer – “Stained Glass”
Lil Halima – “Glue”
Kenyan-Norweigan singer-songwriter Lil Halima releases her brand new single “Glue”. You might have heard of the singer from her stunning COLOURS session last year which had us breaking the repeat button. Her new song has us craving summer nights and days in the park, chilling with friends as the addictive baseline and the upbeat flow has us hooked. Crafted with a team of songwriters responsible for tracks for the likes of Mahalia and Snoh Aalegra – do you need to look any further?
Hailee Steinfeld – “I Love You’s”
She’s an Academy Award-nominated actress and a multi-platinum recording artist, and now she’s made her directorial debut with her brand new single “I Love You’s”. Steinfeld’s new song is a rework of Annie Lennox’s classic “No More ‘I Love You’s” and we are obsessed. Shot in black and white, clock the extravagant outfits and sultry camera angles. Is there anything this superstar can’t do?
Ruby Duff – “Dancing Under Lights”
In these dark times, rising star Ruby Duff graces us with another hit song “Dancing Under Lights” – an injection of energy and colour to brighten our days. Expect catchy lyrics and saccharine vocals from the Leeds-born newcomer, with an upbeat tempo to have us body-shaking all the way into the weekend.
Ross Quinn – “You”
Yorkshire-hailed singer-songwriter Ross Quinn has dropped his dazzling pop track “You” and from the outset, prepare to feel the high energy tempo and shape-shifting production simmering through. FYI, he’s been rubbing shoulders with the likes of Sampha and UK grime mastermind Wiley so expect great things from this northern singer.
Tycho Jones – “Pseudo”
Newcomer Tycho Jones opens up about the hostility of life, both internally and externally on his new track “Pseudo” – populated with the artist’s signature laidback flow. Speaking about the song, Tycho says, “’Pseudo’ continues along the same narrative and describes how I spent my younger teen years on an emotional pendulum. It is a collaboration with my really talented mate Noah Ings who produced the track when he was 16.” The singer has kicked off his 2020 with a huge hit and we can’t wait to see what else he has in store.
The Hour – “Father” ft Anna of The North
The elusive group are back with their highly-anticipated sophomore EP “Father”, in a spellbinding collaboration with Anna Of The North. The beautiful EP offers standout vocals from the mysterious band, and a masterful combination of alt-pop and cinematic vocals. Last year, the group released their first project “Mother” and both these EPs tie together to create the perfect playlist.
