It’s the beginning of spring and releases coming to flow over our way. Lots of music from electro, to rock and pop are shining. Here’s what we are listening to this weekend!
The Slow Readers Club-Build A Tower
The Manchester quartet is back with a brand new fourth album , Build A Tower, out now on Modern Sky. Bringing some pieces of nostalgia, it’s catchy and reminding us of synth rock and the dark waves of the early 80s. Build A Tower is an ode to love, distance and dreams with tracks going deep in our minds. You can listen to the New-Orderesque inspired song You Opened Up My Heart below.
Polychrome-Dreaming About You
East Londoners’ Polychrome soft harmonies melting with lovely electronic beats are up with a new single Dreaming About You. Of course, we can feel the pop essence and the good summer vibes. Harmonies are perfectly entertwined together and we definitely can’t get over of the chorus which is an absolute earworm that we can’t stop thinking about!
Plan B-Heaven Before All Hell Breaks Loose
Ben Drew aka Plan B is back after releasing six years ago the soundtrack for Ill Manors which he had written, directed, and had a small cameo in it. We first knew him as a rapper, but since then, he evolved creatively and offering us this week, one of the best album he made so far. Plenty of soul, plenty of grooves, we just want to shake our body to the sultry tracks. From the first to the last track, the album is reflecting the title as a story. It’s dark sometimes, going from some goosebumps to cheerup vibes, pursuing the happiness through fabulous high notes and emotions.
Following his Mind of Mine album, Zayn, unveiled the follow-up track a couple of weeks ago. Still, it’s a grower for us with the summer pop love vibes. Zayn proved again he got the vocals to be a great pop star, getting from falsettos to darker grooves. It’s the perfect song to cuddle with the love of our life on a Saturday night in front of a movie. It sets the pace for his sophomore album coming soon. I’ll be with you from Dusk Till Dawn and now he sang Let Me Be Your Man and i’ll take care of you. we can’t wait to see what’s coming up in that story plot. We also can’t stop watching the Scarface inspired video that you can see below.
77:78-Love Said (Let’s Go)
If you need a little bit of psychedelia, why not enjoying this soft indie piece created by Aaron Fletcher and Tim Parkin, formerly of The Bees. We feel going back in the sixties Mod era with this lovely melodic guitar and the amazingly produced instrumentation. We couldn’t not fell in love with this one. Jellies, which where this first tune is from, is going to be out this summer on Heavenly Records.
