Guess who’s been down a procrastination hole for the last 4 days? If you guessed me you’d be right. I have honestly spent the last three hours reading Shakespeare conspiracy theories, that no one can actually have answers to at all, but now I know a lot more than I used to about Sir Frances Bacon, so I’ll leave you to decide if it was actually a waste of time.
GIRLI – Play It Cool
Girli nails it yet again. Staying true to her often brutally honest, tongue-in-cheek style she tackles the ever-relatable issue of liking someone who doesn’t like you back. “Play It Cool” is immensely catchy, and positive despite being a somewhat depressing overall theme – but I guess life’s gotta go on hasn’t it.
Martin Luke Brown – Grit Your Teeth
I’m sorry but when did MLB start cracking out a series of solid bangers??? I must have missed that memo, but my god am I here for it. This is honestly such a bop, I had to fight not to start like dancing to it on my way home the other day, which would have actually greatly improved an otherwise dull 4-hour journey. Anyway, this is a solid song and is well worth a listen for anybody.
Amber Run – The Weight
In true Amber Run style, this is completely gorgeous. It relies heavily on vocals, so it’s a good job that this song didn’t need much else, the harmonies are delicious and as per Joe’s voice is stunning. A superb single and hopefully is just a taste of things soon to come from the band.
IDER – Body Love
Yet more tasty harmonies here. This track is a delight to listen to, it’s dreamy but fun and catchy. More Mellow than their other songs, but to me this song, in particular, made me pay attention to this duo. There’s honestly nothing not to like about this, and you’d be silly not to listen right now.
Jabbawoki – Femme Fatale
Corr, this is well groovy. I can’t really get enough of it, it’s just such a cool song, and I wanna be cool too, and listening to this will make that happen, right? It’s short and sweet, and with a catchy bassline and strong vocals, quite frankly, what’s not to like?
