REUP: THE RECENT RELEASES YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO
5 For Friday is Having A Little Re-Brand. We still want to keep you up to date with everything new that you need to add to your playlist – but keeping it down to just 5 tracks / projects a week was too hard when there’s so much good music out there. So we’re giving you even more. We’re still diving into the deepest darkest corners of the musical ocean to bring you our Crème De La Crème of new releases – but we’re just widening the scope a little because as they say there’s plenty of fish in the sea 🙂 So here are picks for what you should be listening to this week
Master Peace – Country Life
The UK’s Indie Rock Prince Master Peace is back with ‘Country Life’ a punchy single setting the tone for whats to come. Peace’s conversational tone airs out the struggles of dealing with the often times overwhelming demands of life – it feels like we’re gearing up for a new era and if this is anything to show of it then I’m excited.
Baby Rose – Go
Baby Rose is an artist with a voice like no other. Her latest ‘Go’ was accompanied by an equally as beautiful single ‘Fight Club’. Both charmingly nostalgic soul tracks air out the discrepancies of holding onto lost love and moving on.
Coults – F&F
Coults has mastered his signature rule-bending sound of futuristic trap infused with autotuned melodic hooks, layered synths, and upbeat tempos and ‘F&F’ is a testament. The British Japanese artist is definitely one to watch.
Jim Legxacy – dj
Lewisham’s very own Jim Legxacy is back sampling Unknown T’s ‘Homerton B’ for his latest ‘dj’. Jim’s soft vocals glide over the guitar stricken beat to create a fun yet romantic track all to relatable as he reminisces on a past lover.
Aaron Taylor – Ebbs & Flow
Ebbs & Flows is a chill indie pop record from London artist Aaron Taylor. The laid back jam looks back on Aaron’s experiences during lockdown, and is all about feeling at ease with the ordinary moments in life.
Dami Oniru – Soft Life
Nigerian R&B singer, songwriter and producer Dami Oniru latest single ‘Soft Life’ effortlessly hops between soft percussive elements and synth-led samples. The sexy and smooth track is laced with infectious confidence both vocally and lyrically.
