New Music Review #009

Another ten tracks recommended for you!

Bebe Rexha - I Got You

A fun catchy pop-dance number from an artist with a great name. (7/10)

Biffy Clyro - Rearrange

It's not a million miles away from what you'd expect from Biffy Clyro, but the gentle vibe and vocal effects work well. (6.5/10)

Devil's Witness - The Wild Things

With a pleasing bassy swagger and a sound-led chorus, it somehow comes together in a gritty, retro-sounding number. (6.5/10)

Disciples - Daylight

'Daylight' is a catchy little electro-pop number that's simple in its production and vocals but hooks you in. (7/10)

Dua Lipa - Room For 2

Another neat little single from Dua Lipa. It's quite gentle and forgiving but offers a warming listen. (6/10)

Hey Violet - Guys My Age

Build around the chorus of the title this is a cool little attitude-filled mid-tempo song with some nice musical guts. (7/10)

Juliette Ashby - Build Up The Strong

With a distinctive reggae and ska influence, this is a funky, jazzy little pop number with Ashby's vocals taking centre stage. (7.5/10)

Lower than Atlantis - Dumb

Another strong soft-rock from the band with a catchy enough chorus to keep you interested. (6.5/10)

The Slow Show - Ordinary Lives

It perhaps starts a little William Shatner but eventually the quality of the lyrics, the strings and the distinctive Faithless-like vocals kick in and it shows its heart and becomes more Johnny Cash meets Leonard Cohen. (7.5/10)

Temples - Certainty

The lyrics and verses are a little flat but the electro-synth riff is a great hook and lifts the track up. (6.5/10)
