I have to admit, I was definitely not a fan of this song upon its first release which is why I never gave it any time. Since that time, it has definitely grown on me. It is hard to hate on anything that Pharrell has a hand in making, still not his best, but then again it is a Major Lazer creation. Anyway, check out the video and jam!
Maverick Sabre is back ladies and gentlemen. His debut album Lonely Are The Brave was a definite smash, and now he releases his first single from his second album titled ‘Breathe’. This track shows a little less Sabre vocals, and more of his flow, it definitely sounds different from his first album. I’m not sure how I feel about the track just yet, but I have been a huge Sabre fan for a while now, and I’m sure this will grow. It’s not radio friendly like the smash ‘Let Me Go’, but I’m liking the stripped back style that he has going.
Watch out for Maverick Sabres second album!
Got so busy with things, I realized I forgot to feature one of my long time favorites, now months old, video ‘Stormy Weather’. Jody Brock is someone I’ve been following for years now, and I will continue to throw all my support his way because he deserves all of it. ‘Stormy Weather’ is one of his originals but if you’re still not sold on him, check out his many acoustics on his youtube page because they are just as good. Anyway, not much else to say, but this guy is doing big things and you should join the ride!
A little slow on this post, but I figured better late then never! Sam Smith is genius and this song just proves he can do no wrong. I absolutely can’t wait for this album and hopefully a USA tour to follow!
This song has grown on me so much since its first release and now I absolutely love it. I’m surprised it hasn’t hit the radio yet, but I feel like it will soon. The video is set in a high school setting, not much going on really, but it doesn’t take away from the song at all, check it out!
HAIM has been one of my favorites since they have debuted, they have a very old school pop vibe to their tracks that I absolutely love, and if you haven’t checked out their debut album Days Are Gone, I highly suggest you do that now. You will instantly fall in love with them, or just watch this video and you will be sold!
It has been a while since we have heard anything new from UK band, Coldplay. They make a comeback with the release of ‘Midnight’ which is taken off their upcoming sixth studio album. While I am a Coldplay fan, and yes their music has usually been very somber and you have to be in some sort of mood to listen to it, this track just doesn’t do it for me. It very much sounds more like a Bon Iver track rather than a Coldplay track, which isn’t a bad thing, but for one of the biggest UK acts, it is. Anyway, I don’t see much potential in this track on the charts, but then again, Coldplay has never been much of a chart seeking band.
I’ve never heard of Maxine Ashley until I heard some buzz on her new track produced by the one and only Pharrell. I decided to check it out, and it is everything! You can definitely hear Pharrell’s influence on the track, and Maxine’s smooth R&B vocals fit perfectly with this track. It has a very summertime vibe to it, which is perfect for this time of year. I haven’t looked into much else from her, but I definitely will soon! Repeat.
One of my new favorites Elli Ingram releases a fantastic video for an equally fantastic track, ‘When It Was Dark’. Elli first caught my attention with her amazing cover of Kendrick Lamars ‘Poetic Justice‘, now she releases some of her own material and its great! I can’t wait to hear more from this smooth soulful singer, hope she makes it over to the states soon!
Nicki is back, dropping her new single just a few minutes ago!
This is the kind of Nicki I can get down with, none of that radio pop friendly mess, this is the nicki that kills features on songs, not the superbass madness. Anyway, Loving her new look and everything about this song! Check it out!
