New Music Review #010

Another ten tracks you must listen to!

BETSY - Wanted More

With a voice that sounds like a modern Cher, this is both a great song through the lyrics, the soaring chorus and BETSY's stand-out and unusual vocals. (7.5/10)

Cast - Do That

A nice gentle little soft-rock song that is worth a listen. (6/10)

Charli XCX feat. Lil Yachty  - After The Afterparty

The lyrics might be shallow and fag-packet but as a catchy pop-song it works, though I can take or leave the Autotuned breakdown from Lil Yachty. (7/10)

The Collapsable Hearts Club feat. Jim Bianco & Petra Haden - Easy Street 

Sounding like it's been ripped straight from a cheesy musical, it's still quite catchy because of it. (7/10)

Garth Brooks - Baby Let's Lay Down and Dance

A funky little upbeat country song that breathes new lift into Brooks' catalogue (7/10).

JP Cooper - September Song 

I suppose this had to be released in September. A catchy, summery, big chorused pop song with a fun, if slightly familiar, breakdown. (7/10)

Panic! At The Disco: Hallelujah

It's not as huge as their big hitters but the familiar mix of music, vocals and lyrics are still solid for them. (7/10)

Passenger - When We Were Young

It's no secret than I'm a big fan of Passenger, and when he releases songs like this it's no wonder. Though sharing a title with songs by Adele, Take That and the Killers this is an original song but with a similar amount of heart. (7/10)

Sigma feat. Birdy - Find Me

It's Birdy's vocals that make this song, otherwise Sigma's work is very derivative of their previous work. (6.5/10)

Tom Speight - Love

This acoustic-guitar and harmony-led country song is a smooth, gentle little number that will warm your heart. (6.5/10)
