Main Playlist Update 11/03/2019
Another week of broadcasting begins! We thought our playlist was pretty much perfect last week, so we haven't made that many changes. We've added The National to the B List and Marshmello ft. CHVRCHES to the A List. The New Music Playlist is chocka, as always.
Big Heath - Bouncy
This track is pure charisma. There is confidence oozing from the repetition of ‘bouncy’ as the percussion over the track’s 3 minute duration, with smooth rapping and heavy beats. This is the Cambridge rapper’s most recent single.
Crows - Wednesday’s Child
The second single released from their upcoming debut album Silver Tongues, frontman Jamie Cox has said that the song is “fundamentally about our communication with others, focusing on misunderstandings - not only between loved ones but also how we treat strangers.”
Jack Gray - Down Side of Up
The Australia/LA based singer Jack Gray’s most recent single ‘Down Side of Up’ is an indie pop bop, with confident vocals and catchy vocal-driven melodies. It’s a simple yet effective track.
Joesef - Limbo
Making music in his bedroom in Glasgow, up and coming artist Joesef released his debut online single ‘Limbo’ after selling out King Tut’s. The track has Motown grooves and fuzzy indie guitar notes.
Lazy Day - Mumma
Written whilst frontwoman Tilly Scantlebury was researching her PhD on motherhood, new single ‘Mumma’ from Londoners Lazy Day is an ode to Tilly’s mother. The track has slick indie bites and instantly recognisable deep vocals.
Luke Barr - Heaven
London indie solo singer songwriter Luke Barr shines with his catchy soulful track Heaven.
Peakes - Hole in the Floor
Hailing from Leeds, alternative pop band Peakes is led by smooth and sleek electronic grooves. The track has heady percussion with slick keyboard layered over sweet female vocals. It’s described by the band as a tale of distraction, and feeling like you are an outsider from life.
SPINN - Is There Something That I Missed
A four-piece from Liverpool, SPINN make dreamy guitar pop. There music is trademarked by hazy and woozy guitars, and ‘Is There Something That I Missed’ is no different. This single is taken from their upcoming debut album.
The Intergalactic Republic of Kongo - I Don’t Need
Self described as Violent psychotropic afro-punk, this is a band you don’t want to miss. ‘I Don’t Need’ has catchy African rhythms and ensemble vocals, and with optimistic synth notes, it’s one you can’t really miss.
Wych Elm - 1983
The Bristol band’s most recent single, ‘1983’ races through it’s 1.40 duration with notes of grunge and moody indie. Taken from their upcoming EP, this suggests that the band are making waves on the local grunge scene.
