New Music Review #51

Another ten songs you need to hear!

Charlie Puth - Attention

Charlie Puth returns with this soulful number. It's not a song that will grab you as much as his earlier singles but his vocals are as great to hear as ever. (6.5/10)

Jake Isaac - Long Road

'Long Road' is a dramatic, building indie number with a memorable, foot-tapping and singable chorus, held up by Isaac's listenable vocals and chants. (7/10)

Longfellow - Brooklyn

Though not quite reaching the heights of 'Choose' this is still a well constructed and enjoyable little single from a talented band. (6/10)

Lucy Whittaker - I'm Not Ever Coming Back Again

Straddling pop and club in equal measure this is a cool little number that bumbles along nicely. It's not going to shatter any records but it's worth a listen. (6.5/10)

Man With A Mission - Dead End in Tokyo

Building a pretty fast-paced and catchy chorus, this is a noteable soft-rock track with poppy understones. (7.5/10)

Rat Boy - Revolution

Finally Rat Boy follows up his great breakthrough 'Move' with a song worthy of it, thanks to a catchy chorus and more of his punky attitude. (7.5/10)

Sigrid - Don't Kill My Vibe

Surprisingly gentle in its delivery this is a punky little pop-indie number with some hardy lyrics and an understated but passionate delivery. (7/10)

Skip Marley - Lions

Fresh from his collaboration with Katy Perry here comes Skip Marley's solo number and though the verses are pretty bland the fist-pumping chorus might elicit some energy from you. (6/10)

TLC feat. Snoop Dogg - Way Back

A reformed TLC are back with this catchy throwback number which sounds just as good as anything from their heyday. The lyrical construction has been heard in many other songs over the years but it's done with gusto here, and Dogg's addition works well. (7/10)

ZAYN feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR - Still Got Time

Better than a lot of the recent singles from the former One Directioner, this is an interesting little number even if it doesn't quite lift up into anything hugely exciting. (6/10)
