New Music Review #37

Another ten tracks that you need to hear!

All Time Low - Dirty Laundry

Less in-your-face than I was expecting from All Time Low, this is a surprisingly low-key indie number from them, but it's no less intriguing. (6.5/10)

Arman Cekin feat. Snoop Dogg & Paul Rey - California Dreaming

For the most part California Dreaming succumbs to the stereotypical lyrics you'd expect from a Snoop Dogg collaboration but the very catchy whistle-riff makes it worth a listen, which says it all really. (6/10)

Ed Sheeran - Galway Girl

Almost approaching overplayed status before it's even released as a proper single, this is still a cracking Irish-influenced pop song. Once you hear it will become an ear worm. (7.5/10)

Jennifer Hudson - Remember Me

Joining the ranks of judges on the Voice using the show as a springboard back into music, this particular track if welcome, a delightful mid-tempo ballad with some heartfelt lyrics and a simple but effective delivery. (7.5/10)

Joseph - SOS (Overboard)

Taking a bit of time to come to my attention this pop-indie track boasts what you'd expect from it: a simple yet catchy chorus, crisp production and delightful lead vocals. (7/10)'

Lady Antebellum - You Look Good

Popping up their country vibe this is a catchy ode to that sexy someone, matching the fun swagger of the song's pace. (7/10)

The Magic Gang - How Can I Compete

'How Can I Compete' is a fun indie song with a sing-a-long ending and a loveable heart. Nice. (7/10)

Riscas - Panic Like Tom

'Panic Like Tom' is a solid little indie hit but with its ear for some good poppy hooks. Simple music, but well done with its upbeat guitar riff and hooky repeat of its title. (7/10)

Riton feat. Kah-Lo, Mr Eazi, Davido - Money

What could have been a cliched song suggested by the cash-focussed title is actually a stripped back, Caribbean-themed, number on needing a holiday. Simple but fun. (6.5/10)

Tom Grennan - Giving It All

With the title of the EP this comes through forming part of the lyrics, this is a catchy little indie ballad with the character of Grennan's voice aiding the delivery. (7/10)
