New Release Roundup 2/2/18

Chvrches – Get Out: Chvrches are back with their first new track since 2015 and it’s a banger. An incredibly catchy chorus and groovy synth hooks are exactly what you’d expect from the Scottish trio, but somehow this track still sounds exciting and new. 93%

Pale Waves – The Tide: This latest single from Pale Waves is apparently one of the earliest tracks they have written. Despite this, ‘The Tide’ still fits in with their recent slew of singles with similar levels of slick production and good songwriting. 85%

Slug – No Heavy Petting:  A brilliantly bizarre track from Slug here, still managing to have an infectious guitar groove alongside unique vocals and spooky sounding synths. Nice. 80%

Mahalia ft. Little Simz – Proud of Me: A fairly simple ballad on paper, ‘Proud of Me’ is made great by the personality in Mahalia’s voice, and as always a verse from Little Simz lifts the track up another level. Very nice. 83%

Gaz Coombes – Deep Pockets: This new single from Gaz plods along nicely. It’s not amazing but it’s definitely not bad. Bit of a grower I think. 70%

The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar – Pray For Me: Another great track to come from the Black Panther soundtrack. Abel and Kendrick’s chemistry has been proved in the past and this is no exception. I really like the little beepy synths on the chorus here. 93%

Tramlines unveil new look for 2018’s 10th Anniversary.

2018 marks the 10th anniversary of Sheffield’s Tramlines festival, and they have big plans for their birthday.

This year’s festival will be held at Hillsborough Park, with four main stages all being held within this new area. Take a look at the site map below:

Iconic Sheffield venue The Leadmill are curating a stage at this year’s festival. The stage will host both comedy and music acts, with Sheff legend ‘The Reverend’ Jon McClure curating the Sunday night of the festival on that stage.

The ‘Into The Trees’ area returns this year, a lot bigger than 2017. A new stage called the Library stage will showcase left-field artists from a variety of emerging talent.

The Main stage itself will be at the bottom of Hillsborough park, with a view of Hillsborough stadium in the background.
