Seinabo Sey – Hard Time
Electro-soul from a Swedish songstress being labelled as the next ‘Adele’. It’s assured, sultry and downright rhythmic. This is Sey’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’.
Azealia Banks – Idle Delilah
Catchy as fuck, this is breezy, Caribbean-flavoured hip-hop that oozes with effortlessness. Hard not to enjoy.
Catfish & The Bottlemen – Homesick
Bubbling to a catchy, urgent crescendo; there’s something a little Imagine Dragons-by way of- Kings of Leon, about this gritty, growling tune. Listen out for the killer riff.
Palace – Veins
Low-key loveliness. Palace are a brooding quartet reminiscent of Jeff Buckley, and this slow-burner will hopefully become their trademark. That tinkly, guitar-strumming at the beginning is a sheer lullaby, and the bluesy blood pumping through their veins is nothing short of spiritual.
Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This
A proper decent ballad like. Soulful, flawless and this week’s guilty pleasure. That pitch change gives me tingles every single time.
Happy listening. Have a good weekend.
