Spanning all musical genres, these are the best new releases from the past few weeks that I can’t get enough of. Give them a listen and you’ll probably soon feel the same too.
Love Ssega – Minds
I was so excited to hear this track. Ever since Love Ssega featured on Clean Bandit’s excellent ‘New Eyes’ album, I have been trying to get my hands on more of his music, but to no avail. Turns out he’s been busy completing his PhD in Chemical Engineering in Cambridge in the meantime. Science now aside, this is his debut solo single: a rave-y, funky psychedelic-pop keeper of a song. Welcome back Love Ssega!
Liss – Try
A dreamy, smooth indie number from new Danish four-piece, Liss. Definitely only helping to fuel my obsession with all things Scandinavian.
Drake – Hotline Bling (+Disclosure cover)
Ah, he’s done it again. Drake is back with another catchy hit to add to his hall of fame of sentimental rap. It’s been in my head none-stop for the past week and, if you haven’t already, make sure you watch Disclosure and Sam Smith’s Live Lounge cover of the single here. Winning.
Mabel – Know Me Better
I don’t know very much about Mabel, but I do know that this is a very good R&B song. Love the vocal and the slightly throw-back sound – the hook reminds me of Amerie (remember her?), in a good way.
Oh Wonder – Drive
This is my stand-out song from Oh Wonder’s acclaimed debut album. The pair have gained numerous fans over the past year as they’ve released one song per month, proving their production and song-writing credentials each time round. If you’re a fan of their soothing harmonies, don’t miss their upcoming European tour!!
