New Music Round-up: MARINA, Why Don’t We & Macklemore, Two Door Cinema Club And More
We've got all the bops for you this week.
This week we’ve got new music from all your favourite artists. With collaborations Missy Elliott and Lizzo, Why Don’t We and Macklemore, plus all new singles from MARINA, Two Door Cinema Club, Catfish & The Bottlemen and more, all genres are coming at you this Friday.
Here are our top picks you need to add to your playlists:
Lizzo & Missy Elliott – Tempo
In this ode to all the plus size women out there who feel unseen and unrecognised in the music industry, Lizzo and Missy Elliott provide a bop they well and truly deserve. Celebrating women in all their glory, this song brings the tempo and heat that we can’t help but dance to.
Two Door Cinema Club – Talk
In this explosive dance song, Two Door Cinema Club prove they sing us out of any funk. With a mellow beat that’s perfectly paired with jazz-esque instrumentals, we can’t help but be hypnotised by their upbeat rhythm and feel-good lyrics.
Catfish & The Bottlemen – 2all
They’ve done it again, lads. Matching that indie lyricism that hits us straight in the feels with those raw and powerful guitar strings, this band knows exactly how to emote everything they’re feeling onto paper and into the sad bop we need.
MARINA – Orange Trees
This song feels like summer and tastes just as sweet. Making us feel as though we’re laying on the beach on a hot August day and soaking up the sun, MARINA has a niche for transporting us to our own imaginary sanctuaries when listening to her music, and this song is no exception.
Why Don’t We (feat. Macklemore) - I Don’t Belong In This Club
For all the introverts, this is your song. Why Don’t We and Macklemore perfectly tap into that feeling of wishing you were back at home the minute you step into the club. The awkwardness, fake smiles, and being really, really bad at dancing. Although if the DJ played this song, we think we’d stay for one more drink.
Tame Impala - Patience
Releasing their first single in four years, Tame Impala make their highly awaited comeback, and they’re back with a bang. Reflecting on time and its trait of flying by way too fast, the band have us feeling all the nostalgia - and it sounds way too good.
Maggie Lindemann - Friends Go
We’re so here for this song. Blending her soft and gentle vocals over a strong instrumental filled with trumpets, drums, and a bass that we can’t help but let our heart beat in time to, it’s clear Maggie Lindemann knows how to cook up some pop perfection. With lyrics that explore mental health and its vices, this song is a game changer for the pop star.
Steel Banglez, AJ Tracey, MoStack - Fashion Week
We imagine this is what sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week feels like. Bringing the fiery bars and brazen raps, this song is unapologetically confrontational - and that’s why we can’t get enough of it.
Jonas Blue (feat. Theresa Rex) - What I Like About You
Jonas Blue always knows how to produce a song that has us feeling like we’re dancing on clouds. Pairing this dreamy beat with the angelic voice of Theresa Rex, you can’t not get out of your seat when these two come on the radio.
Steve Aoki & Monsta X - Play it Cool
The English version of this collaborative hit is finally here. In this cool and calm song, Monsta X charm us with their sweet vocals, and Steve Aoki gets us on the dancefloor with his irresistible beat.
Hi This Is Flume – Flume
He’s back, people. Coming at us with an album full of bangers, Flume has teamed up with the likes of slowthai, Eprom, SOPHIE and more on this album - and the result is a masterpiece. Creating fresh and new sounds unlike anything we’ve heard before, this artist’s futuristic style is undeniably catchy.
When I Wake Up – Maverick Sabre
Is there a sound we love more than Maverick Sabre’s voice? Giving us all the emotions on this album, Maverick knows exactly when to bring the beat in and stun us with his soulful vocals. Plus, featuring Jorja Smith and Chronixx, there are collabs that give us everything we’ve been craving.
American Football III – American Football
In their third studio album, the band have teamed up with the likes of Rachel Goswell, Elizabeth Powell, and Paramore’s Hayley Williams to deliver a catalogue that has us enchanted and mesmerised by their attention to detail with their music. It’s soft, gentle, and can tap into anyone’s heart - we’re going to be having it on repeat for a very long time.
Dean Lewis - A Place We Knew
The ‘Be Alright’ singer is back with his debut album, and it’s full of guitar strings that tug at our heartstrings. Delivering an album that hits us in all the right spots, this guy’s talent is putting the feelings we can’t word into songs we can scream the lyrics too. We feel indebted to him forever.
