Every Friday we meet back here to give you our musical offering of the latest tracks you should be listening to and this week is no different. Delving into the ocean of new music can be daunting especially when there’s so much out there – from rap, to indie pop, to R&B …. it’s hard to decipher what should and maybe shouldn’t make it to your playlist. We’ve scoured the deepest darkest corners of the musical ocean (so you don’t have to) to bring you our Crème De La Crème of new releases from this week. So sit back relax and listen to this weeks list featuring Og Kemii, Alex Vaughan, Finn Foxell and more.
OG KEMi ft. Len – i don’t like em
Independently, OG Kemi and Len are incredible so if there is one thing I’m certain of in life it’s that when they join forces it is going to be good – and ‘i don’t like em’ is no exception. If your face isn’t stank throughout the entire track you’re doing something wrong – because between Kemi’s flow, Len’s wordplay and the beat (The BEAT?!) there’s not one element of the song that doesn’t hit.
Moio – SUNBEAMING
Moio’s first single ‘SUNMBEAMING’ is rightfully named – the breakout sounds exactly like sunshine is poring through your speakers. It’s an indie pop fans dream – with buttery vocals, tyler the creator esque production and multiple musical moments perfect for swinging your head back, waving your arms and jumping around.
YellowStraps ft. Sam Wise – flowin
‘flowin’ is the latest single from YellowStraps upcoming project ‘Tentacle’. Featuring Sam Wise, the jazz infused hip hop track sees both artists join forces unravelling the the paradox and complexities of falling in love. It’s a sophisticated and ambient journey perfect for a late night drive.
Finn Foxell – Red & Blue
In Red & Blue Elevation Meditation’s Finn Foxell reveals a more intimate side to his lyricism – another one unravelling the complexities of a new relationship. A beautiful blend of Foxell’s punk, indie and hip hop influences, his laidback flow glides effortlessly among the ambience of electric guitar riffs and smooth yet punchy vocals.
TraviS & Elzzz – F**CK OFF
Frontrunners is Dublin’s music scene and founders of fashion and music collective ‘Gliders’ – TraviS & Elzzz are a force not to be reckoned with. Together, the two go back to back gliding (pun intended lmao) over classic drill production. Their forthcoming tape ‘Full Circle’ drops 13th January and if this release is anything to go by – it’ll be crazy good.
