After making my first Years & Years post yesterday, the group comes back with another single that premiered on UK radio yesterday called ‘Desire’. Just like their previous track, ‘Take Shelter, ‘Desire’ brings such a UK dance-floor vibe and I love all of it. This is a sick track, bringing influences from every UK genre and combines it. These guys are going to be on my radar for months to come, they are just getting started!
Found out about Years & Years after hearing them being featured on the track ‘Sunlight‘ by The Magician. Now, after doing a little research into their solo work, I found this fantastic track titled ‘Take Shelter’. This track has a very UK dance-floor vibe to it, with it’s reggae feel to it. I’m loving everything about this track, and I have to say Olly, the lead singer, has got quite the voice on him. I’m looking forward to hearing more from these guys and they have my full support, and I hope to see them over here in Dallas very soon!
I don’t really know where to start with this track. First, it’s straight fire, second, it’s Nick Jonas. Who would have thought that the former Jonas brother had this in the works, this collaboration with Angel Haze is something different, and yet still has top 40 written all over it. It sounds a bit like trap music at points, but this will shoot up to the top of the charts easily, it might even give Angel Haze the necessary push to fame that she deserves.
I’m actually really excited for the new Nick Jonas album; never thought I would find myself saying that.
These Danity Kane posts are always bitter-sweet, because the fact that they had fire in the studio still is blowing my mind, but on the other hand, this is the last that we will get from them is really depressing. Danity Kane was a girl group that couldn’t be tied down, it’s sad to see something this good go to waste. Anyway, with their album being released soon, we are slowly getting tracks off of it including ‘Tell Me’. Their previous track ‘Rhythm of Love’ wasn’t my favorite when I heard it in live version, and the studio version didn’t change that, but hearing ‘Tell Me’ gives me life again. I would have loved to see some classic Danity Kane choreography to a lot of these tracks on the album, maybe the whole thing is a publicity stunt? We can only hope!
Becky Hill, who was eliminated in the semi-final of The Voice UK, has graced us with her amazing talents. This was a season of the voice that I actually watched, and I was rooting for her, along with Vince Kidd, but that’s besides the point. Becky Hill was a standout because of her amazing and unique vocal ability, and now she has done what few can do, and transferred her talents to a fantastic song. Let’s hope the UK latches on to this tune because it could be huge!
I have to admit, The London Sessions is churning out some hits, including this track tittled ‘Nobody But You’. While this isn’t as strong as ‘Right Now’, I love that The Queen is doing something different and doing it very well. She is stepping up from all other Divas in today’s industry, and changing the game entirely, being a step ahead of everyone else. This track is still great, and keeps the same kind of disclosure sound and has Mary J. belting over the dance floor beat.
I can’t wait to hear the album in its entirety!
I can’t stress how huge the UK scene is musically right now. Gorgon City is making quite the name for themselves, with their debut album being released less than a week away, Zane Lowe premiers another fire track. ‘Go All Night’ features the soulful Jennifer Hudson, and while she really brings nothing special to the Kiesa written track, well we all know she can still sing and that’s all that matters. Anyway, this track is pure dance flow, club anthem and I love every moment of it. I can’t wait to hear the rest of their album!
Take a listen!
