New Music Monday – 24th April 2017

Lana Del Ray – Lust For Life (Feat. The Weeknd) Very catchy new track from Lana Del Ray with accompaniment from ‘Starboy’ himself, The Weeknd. Probably not the most similar pairing of artists we’ve ever seen but it works! Wilkinson – Hypnotic ‘Hypnotic’ is the new album from British producer Wilkinson, focusing on modern day electronica fused with classic drum ‘n’ bass beats, and still fits under the radio-pop category.

New Music Monday – 17th April 2017

  Kendrick Lamar – DAMN K.Dot’s latest effort, DAMN was released a week after it was rumoured and of course it did not disappoint. Kendrick ticks all the boxes with this both lyrically and musically. Also this is his second appearance on New Music Monday so must be doing something right! Check out : D.N.A, Loyalty & Element. Royal Blood – Light’s Out Alternative rock from Brighton, England. The two-piece create a fantastically dense sound with only the two of them. Their tight drums and distored guitars remind one of Wolfmother or Priestess. The lads also have a new album coming
