New Release Roundup 23rd June 2018

singles

Ariana Grande ft. Nicki Minaj – The Light Is Coming: Another great track from Ariana’s upcoming ‘Sweetener’ that shows she really isn’t messing around on this new project, showing real variation from her previous single. 92%

Years & Years – Palo Santo: This sounds so much like it should be at the end of a Hunger Games movie that I just remembered I never saw the last one. Good track though and Olly’s voice is still nice and it’s a well produced track; I’m glad they haven’t just made another album exactly the same as their first. 70%

Cheat Codes & Little Mix – Only You: When I first heard this I thought it was Zara Larsson which isn’t a bad thing, but it does not reach that Little Mix level of banger that I expect from them. 50%

Our Girl – In My Head: Another great single from Our Girl, with a chill, moody beginning leading up to a great progressive build up towards the end of the track. 83%

Florence and The Machine – Big God: A nice track from Florence with a good vocal performance, but I kept waiting for it to have a big finish or change-up but in the end it fell a bit flat 65%

Paul McCartney – I Don’t Know: The first of two new tracks from Faul here, ‘I Don’t Know’ is a charming, toe-tappy emotional little ballad that shows he can still write a great track. 70%

                                  Come On To Me: The second Macca track is my fave of the two, a real catchy, upbeat track proving he isn’t showing signs of slowing down any time soon. 82%

Estrons – Lilac: More of the same from Estrons, but in a good way. Lilac is a great, fast paced track with a passionate vocal performance. 75%

Girli – Day Month Second: A really well produced, catchy tune from Girli here. A new sound from her but she doesn’t lose her charm and attitude that gained her initial attention. Goooood. 80%

albums

Panic! At The Disco – Pray For The Wicked: This new Panic! album is a nice, clean collection of snazzy emo-pop songs with Brendon Urie’s vocals really shining on a majority of the tracks, most of which could easily be singles.  77%                                    Best Three: High Hopes, One Of The Drunks, The Overpass
