New Release Roundup 20/4/18

Singles

Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry: A great track from Ariana here. As soon as the really infectious beat kicks in after the intro i could tell it was going to be a bop. Ariana’s voice sounds great too here, with the spoken ‘shut your mouth’ refrains adding a real level of personality to the track, and the stronger vocal refrains are also excellent. The instrumental too grows on me with each listen, it’s really well layered with little details that creep in now and again. If the rest of her upcoming album is this good, we’re in for a treat. 96%

Father John Misty

Disappointing Diamonds Are The Rarest of Them All: Another great track from Mr.Misty’s just announced album ‘God’s Favourite Customer’ out on the 1st of June. The usual FJM combination of witty lyrics and intricate melodies is here, and following on from ‘Mr.Tillman’ this is another track that indicates this album will not be as downbeat as Pure Comedy. 80%

Just Dumb Enough To Try: The most stripped back of the tracks we have heard from this new project so far, this song has a beautiful acoustic guitar backing and it really shows off Josh’s voice. 83%

Teleman – Submarine Life: A really groovy, chill instrumental on this new track from Teleman here, again the band have managed to change their sound without losing the charm that they bring into all of their tracks. Great production here from Boxed In too, he seems to work really well with Teleman. 80%

Blossoms – There’s a Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls): This is one of the best tracks Blossoms have released so far. A really catchy hook, chorus and great production make this a great pop track and Tom’s vocals sare very well suited to this production style. Very nice. 85%

Jorja Smith – Blue Lights: Jorja really is one of the best new vocalists in the UK right now, and this track really highlights just how good she is.Β Nice Dizzee samples near the end too. 80%
