Share This Article:
Yep, Drake may have just dropped an album that features guest spots from Giggs, Skepta and Kanye West, but that's not the only exciting thing happening in music right now! There's also a new meme that has Meryl Streep yelling to all your favourite songs, and what's not to love about that? Maybe, just maybe this new Drake release will help take away Ed Sheeran's control of the charts! Not that 'the charts' have anything to do with the best new music coming out. There's this lot for starters. Check out our selection of this week's best new tunes below. The Vegan Leather - Shake It Paisley's answer to LCD Soundsystem, The Vegan Leather are back with art-pop banger 'Shake It'. The track bursts with kaleidoscopic grooves and infectious beats, promising to get you ready for a night out to remember (or perhaps forget). Matt Wills - Emily Matt Wills is already receiving love from BBC Radio 1 and his heroes The Kooks thanks to new track 'Emily', a heartfelt ballad that sees Wills croon soothingly over a gorgeous piano melody and slick electronic beats. Influenced by the likes of Ben Howard and The 1975, he's definitely one to keep on your radar. Andrew Rinehart - Protect Andrew Rinehart has made a name for himself as one of the leading voices in Louisville's DIY scene and his latest output 'Protect' cements that reputation. Moody yet emotive, it's an eerie slice of dark electro-pop written in late 2014 "as a kind of protection spell against sociopaths" - its release to the public only now being a fitting indicicator of our current political climate. The Nyx - Fire Breathing Lady 'Fire Breathing Lady' sounds exactly as you would expect it to: stomping, angry and full of feminist empowerment. High Wycombe's The Nyx have released this in ancitpation of their self-titled debut EP, and if this track is anything to go by it's going to be a fun one.
