Paperwhite - Take Me Back

Day 46 Paperwhite – Pieces

Following Shura’s Indecision yesterday, today we have plenty more 80’s vibes courtesy of Brooklyn based brother-sister duo Paperwhite. The follow-up to Take Me Back, new single Pieces is a diamond of pop song, with hooks and big choruses aplenty. Soaring freely, the song’s glistening synths, groovy beat and sugar-sweet vocals complement each other perfectly, creating what is throughout an extremely fun, happy…

Shura - Indecision

Day 45 Shura – Indecision

Having wowed the world with her irresistible singles Touch and Just Once, sold-out her debut UK show in one day (I feel very lucky to have a pair of tickets!!!), and signed a major label deal with Polydor Records this past week, things couldn’t be going much better for the wonderful Shura. Celebrating these huge victories, this week saw Shura unleash her…

FYFE - Holding On

Day 44 FYFE – Holding On

Having followed his early movements meticulously, it’s actually been quite a while since I last featured FYFE on this blog. Now in the lead-up to his debut album, which is expected to arrive in February 2015, we are treated to new single Holding On, an undeniably intriguing and cool number. Full of awkward yet appealing chord movements…

Mansionair - Second Night

Day 43 Mansionair – Second Night

We all love a good success story, so the tale behind Australian artist Mansionair’s stunning new track is well worth repeating. After emerging with their debut single Hold Me Down ft. Revier back at the very beginning of the year, the song has had a staggering 1.3 million plays on Soundcloud, making it easily one of the most popular, elusive…

Halos - Dust

Day 41 Halos – Dust

Although Dust is Halos’ debut single, the anonymous London-based trio already sound like the finished article. Arising from the ashes of as yet unknown previous band’s, the trio’s mysterious identity is however offset entirely by their supremely confident, well-defined sound. Haunting, chilling and electrifying, Dust is an exemplary debut that alerts all your listening senses, and leaves you wanting…

The Mispers - Shoulder

Day 40 The Mispers – Shoulder

I must admit, the first time I listened to the latest single from London five-piece The Mispers, I wasn’t convinced that I liked it, let alone loved it. Now after multiple plays, the repeat button has become a vastly attractive button, and in all honesty, I look back at myself in shame, as I can’t believe my…

As Elephants Are - Crown

Day 38 As Elephants Are – Crown

Yesterday, As Elephants Are unveiled Crown, the quite smashing title-track from their forthcoming EP, out November 17th. A good-old indie anthem, Crown is supremely confident, exuding an infectious energy and positive livelihood that is immediately comforting and easy to warm to. With its hearty, ‘big-statement’ guitars and easily chantable lyrics, you can expect this one to be an absolute…

Childish Gambino - telegraph ave.

Day 37 Childish Gambino – Retro

Being quite picky when it comes to enjoying R&B / Rap / Hip-Hop, Donald Glover aka. Childish Gambino has always been a hit and miss artist in my book. Loving one song of his then disliking the next, his latest effort Retro is definitely one of his best. Combining fast flowing rhymes with his impressive falsetto, Retro is a fun,…
