New Music Review #89

Ten more songs that you really need to hear!

The Amazons - Ultraviolet

Another upbeat number from the Amazons that will get you rocking along, even if it's not quite as distinctive as some of their other hits. (6/10)

Beck - Up All Night

Not as huge as some of his other recent songs but it still has enough of a buzz about it to win you over. (6.5/10)

The Darkness - Solid Gold

The Darkness are always at their best when they stick their tongue firmly in cheek, and on this song (and video) they certainly do that. Welcome back! (7/10)

Erasure - Just A Little Love

Continuing their strong string of come-back singles this is a fun mid-tempo ballad with bite. (6.5/10)

Imelda May - Leave Me Lonely

'Leave Me Lonely' is another touching, well written and emotional mid-tempo number from Imelda May, balancing her distinctive voice with crisp production. (7/10)

Megan Mckenna - Far Cry From Love

The lyrics might be a little cookie-cutter but this touching, slow ballad is delivered with such emotion you can gloss over the familiar words. Definitely pulls on the heart-strings. (6.5/10)

Nadine Coyle - Go To Work

With quite a different sound to what I was expecting, this is a ballsy, retro-sounding pop hit with plenty of gusto and modern production. Fun! (7/10)

River Matthews - Sunshine

With a delightfully husky voice Matthews brings some real bounce to this upbeat poppy number. Great! (7.5/10)

The Tide - Naked

Lyrically it's not exactly the most highbrow of tracks but it's all wrapped up in a fun pop vibe that will get your feet tapping. (7/10)

Wolf Alice - Beautifully Unconventional

It might have hints of Tenacious D's 'Tribute' at times but this is a funky, slow-indie track from the band that has plenty of heart to enjoy. (7/10)
