New Release Roundup: 10th August 2018

Twenty One Pilots – Levitate: The third track taken from Top’s upcoming ‘Trench’ album signifies the biggest shift in sound from the duo, with a fairly chill, vibey beat underneath Tyler’s rapped verses. It’s a short one too, coming in at just over 2 minutes. 70%

Ray Blk – Run Run: A catchy, thoughtful track from Ray Blk here giving an autobiographical perception of violence and crime in London. A very nicely produced beat and a good, heartfelt vocal performance. 80%

She Drew The Gun – Resister: This is the lead single from She Drew The Gun’s upcoming album ‘Revolution of Mind’ out in October, and it’s a brilliant galloping, groovy rock track. Sick. 90%

Leadley – Like I Did: Pleasantly surprised by this new Leadley track; great vocals from Bethan over a really groovy synth-pop production makes this her best track so far. 80%

Anteros – Call Your Mother: Reaally like this new one from Anteros. With an instantly infectious chorus and the best performance by the band i’ve heard so far, this is by far their best song to date and I’m very excited for what’s next. 94%

Nina Nesbitt – Loyal To Me: This has been in my head since Nina played it at Tramlines a few weeks ago and I’m glad to report it’s still a bop. Hopefully going to be a massive hit for her. 90%

Tkay Maidza ft. Duckwrth – Flexxin: An aaaabsolute banger. Amazing beat, amazing bars from both Tkay and Duckwrth. 93%

Jetta – Fool: A great funky, synth-pop track from Jetta here, with the great production on the track giving off a really rich layered sound without it being too cluttered or messy. Niiice. 80%

L.S.D. – Thunderclouds: L.S.D. is Labrinth, Sia and Diplo. Despite all this great musical power behind the track this one falls a bit flat to me, feeling uninspired and just forgettable. 40%

Maland2016 – M-Sides: A really solid debut release from upcoming Canadian electronic producer Maland2016. A groovy, varied collection of videogame-esque tracks. 80%
