Jody Brock finally gives us a taste of his EP, Phoenix. I have been waiting for this EP for so long, and it is right around the corner. All we had before was a couple of acoustic performances of this song, which were fantastic, but I have to say the final version of this song is way better than anything I was expecting! It is weird hearing this song in final stage, because I have been listening to the acoustic version for so long now, but I can’t complain at all. It has a very big band sound and old school vibe, he is definitely doing something different with this and I love it. I don’t even know where to start with Brock’s vocals, no words for how amazing they are. Loving everything about this track, and I can’t wait till the entire EP gets released!
Now that Jess Glynne has stepped out of the shadow of Clean Bandit, she has released some pretty strong tracks, ‘Hold My Hand’ being one of them. I can’t explain how much I love the voice on this woman, she gives a soulful vibe to her dance floor ready songs that no one is able to do. This song has gotten quite a buzz since its release, and I’m expecting quite a huge solo debut for her. I’m excited that she will be at the local music festival SXSW this year, and I am looking forward to hearing this live!
After her iconic Superbowl performance, Missy Elliott might actually be making the comeback we have been waiting for. She teased us with a comeback a couple of years ago, and never dropped anything after that. She has been previewing pictures of her and Timbaland in the studio, and now she features on this Jack Ü track, which is definitely a hard hitter. I have been waiting to hear what Missy does in this day in music. I love this track, and I have been looking forward to this Jack Ü collaboration for a while now, this is just the beginning.
I have loved both of these artists since the early stages of their career, and it has just grown since then. Ed Sheeran who has since played at the olympics, to grammy nominations is now a major player in the music business. Rudimental’s album Home is a perfect blend of the UK sound, and I still play it 2 years later. This track is greatness, Ed sounds fantastic and Rudimental adds a perfect drum and bass type track behind it. This probably won’t hit off over here in the States, but it will be pretty big on the UK side of music.
I already gave me opinion on this song, and I have to say the video is simple, yet powerful. It’s probably because they spent all the money on the featured guests. Anyway, I’m here for this new #R8 era, lets do this!
