With last week seeing temperatures of 28 degrees as well as some impressive thunder and lightning displays, Bank Holiday Monday has us all guessing whether to pull out the barbecue or grab the largest golfing umbrella. Also, Sam Smith, Florence + The Machine, and Liam Gallagher were just some of the acts who performed at BBC’s Biggest Weekend festival, taking place in four nations/locations across the UK last weekend. So, with music in mind, here are some perfect new tunes to ease you into the week. Two Legs – Replace You Reasonably new electronic producer Two Legs released second single ‘Replace You’ to SoundCloud on May 25th. Blurring the lines between lyrical emotiveness and melodic dance music, Two Legs continues to redefine the electronic genre in this rhythmic track. ‘Replace You’ audially represents a notion of impatience, with the melancholy beats causing uncertainty of whether to feel happy or sad. With having a distinctive difference between his first single ‘Don’t Tell’, a proudly haunting track, the growth of the young London based producer is definitely exciting. Dead Ceremony – All This Noise Following the announcement of the Tunbridge Wells quartet’s new EP Heartache, new single ‘All This Noise’ showcases their expertise in blending fragile vocals with synth beats. Dead Ceremony’s digitisation of organic sounds creates a song about the revelation of falling out of love, landing in the broad scope of the indie-electronic-synth-pop genre. Already having a steady run of acclaimed singles to their name, the band have acclaimed support of BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 1, with also playing to a full tent at T in the Park and supporting the likes of indie-rockers Wolf Alice. No Rome – Do It Again Co-produced by Matty Healy and George Daniel of The 1975, No Rome has shared new song ‘Do It Again’. The single stands as No Rome’s (aka Rome Gomez’s) first release for label Dirty Hit, the same label known for raising the likes of Wolf Alice, Pale Waves, The Japanese House, and indeed, the 1975 themselves. The track shimmers with Healy and Daniel’s influence, but it is not a dominating force – allowing No Rome’s alt pop sounds to be heard in the dreamy, harmonious track. Frenship – MI Amore ‘MI Amore’ is the latest single from acclaimed Los Angeles duo FRENSHIP. The track expresses the group’s livelihood in a track extremely fitting for playlists as a summer pop anthem. Accompanying the song is a newly released video which captures their momentum on the road with live performance and backstage footage, tracking their movements through their massive American tour. Aston Merrygold – Get Stupid For the song made popular by the latest Samsung Galaxy S9 television advert, Aston Merrygold encourages fans to ‘Get Stupid’ in his new debuted video for the single. The video, filmed at the former JLS member’s dance studios BASE in Vauxhall, London, gives the track (released in 2015) a new lease of life. The track is pure mainstream pop grounded by a touch of R&B, which recently becomes the most Shazamed advert in the UK. In conjunction with mysnapp, Aston’s technological ventures continue as the mobile app can be used to shop the fashion worn in the video. Tropics – Keep Me Turning Back Woozy and sombre ‘Keep Me Turning Back’ sets the tone for British vocalist, songwriter and producer Tropic’s forthcoming third album. As a collaboration with BADBADNOTGOOD, the track explores being drawn to a negative energy, a type of addiction that we know is unhealthy. Tropics is the creative output of London-based Chris Ward, with his releases spanning multiple styles influenced by electronica, shoe-gaze and post-punk. Pharrell Williams x Camila Cabello – Sangria Wine Both being no strangers to the charts, Pharrell Williams and Camila Cabello have teamed up for new Latino fuelled track ‘Sangria Wine’. Seamlessly blending English and Spanish lyrics, the single has hints of reggae as the sultry anthem brings itself forward as a song for the summer. The track plays on an enjoyable back-and-forth between the pair, who also previously worked on Cabello’s single ‘Havana’.
