New Music We Love: Florence is sensational, Shawn & Khalid is a mastermind and we offend everyone else

4th May 2018 | Music

Troye Sivan would definitely top our New Music Friday list but, please note, he released his new song ‘Bloom’ on Wednesday and is, therefore, disqualified. We can accept a Thursday release as being at least marginally near to Friday, but Wednesday is a Hump Day Release and we haven’t developed a feature for that yet.

Featured Song: Florence & The Machine – Hunger

Florence & The Machine’s comeback is, definitely, highly anticipated and does it let down? We think not! She returns with a classic FATM (no, not FAT M… it stands for… oh, you got it) – a mixture of harp, orchestral, references to the earth/water/humanity and a strong, consistent beat. Also, we’re obsessed with the way she emphasises the words: Body Baby… but that’s just our English GCSE coming out.

What makes this song so great is that it has a HRR (High Repeat Rate – it’s a term we MIGHT have made up, like how Trump made up “priming the pump”) but is a genuinely great, high production, no-rap-feature pop song. Artistry at it’s best.


Other Good Ones

Shawn Mendes – Youth (feat. Khalid): What a mastermind of a collaboration!! Although we have only seen one photo of them together, we trust that Shawn and Khalid are friends because harmonies like this don’t come without friendship. Shawn keeps one-upping himself with each new song that we hear, and ‘Youth’ is another one to add onto the “actually very good” pile.

Julia Michaels – Jump (feat. Trippie Redd): YES!! When it comes to ‘Jump’ we have the classic case of a very talented songwriter-turned-singer releasing a very catchy song with great lyrics. Was the rap feature necessary? Yes, it’s 2018 let’s be honest. But Julia Michaels can carry any song…

Interview with EO

EO is tipped for big things in the UK music scene.

At 16 years old, he released his first song 'German' at the end of March, and it has propelled him into the spotlight - the single has been gaining radio play on mainstream radio, and the GRM Daily music video has over 6M views to date. Artists such as JME and Yungen have also co-signed the track... and we're certain that this song will be one of your songs the summer!
