Featuring brand new Chvrches and Everything Everything, this week’s selection of new music is definitely an exciting mix.
First up is the latest single from Hot Chip, off their sixth album ‘Why Make Sense?’. While, in my opinion, nothing can beat the incredible ‘Huarache Lights’, this latest track offers a slightly different, more funky and perhaps radio-friendly sing-along sound. Have a listen to ‘Started Right‘.
Further showing off the range of wonderful British music, Everything Everything‘s latest single ‘Spring / Sun / Winter / Dread‘ is one of my favourites off their album ‘Get To Heaven’. It is unbelievably catchy, just the right amount of quirky and I love it.
The next track has got me very excited for the September release of Chvrches‘ second album ‘Every Open Eye’ and has made me fall in love with their music all over again. First they released ‘Leave A Trace’ in July and now ‘Never Ending Circles‘, both excellent tracks. I have had this on repeat constantly since it was uploaded!
As well as some exciting big names, one of my pick’s this week comes from a relatively unheard of Scottish band, White. Reminding me slightly of Franz Ferdinand and with a heavy 80s influence to their sound, these guys deserve to make the big time. Their music is cool and catchy and right up my street. Have a listen to their latest ‘Blush‘.
My final choice for this week moves into soulful R&B-funk territory. It is a brand new remix by Jungle of Dornik‘s fantastic single ‘Stand In Your Line‘ and brings an already brilliant song into smooth night-time territory, with that distinctive chilled Jungle beat. Make sure to have a listen and also check out Dornik’s debut album which was released last week.
Well that’s what I’ll be listening to this week, hope you have also found something that has taken your fancy!
