New Music Review #90

Ten more songs you must listen to!

Betsy - You Won't Love Me

One of the best voices around at the moment, Betsy transforms this standard ballad into something much bigger thanks to her powerful vocal chords. (7/10)

Carly Rae Jepsen - Cut To The Feeling

It's difficult not to be won over by Jepsen's perky pop vibe and on 'Cut To The Feeling' she's crafted another shamelessly fun pop song. (7.5/10)

Craig David - Heartline 

Craig David continues his big comeback with possibly his best song since he returned, mixing his classic sound with more modern club vibes. Catchy. (7/10)

GIRLI - Hot Mess

With echoes of Daphne and Celeste and Shampoo this is a punky critique of being girl wrapped up in a fun pop hit. Neat. (7/10)

Hudson Taylor - Feel It Again

The summery vibe and relatable lyrics hold this radio-friendly single together and the chorus is certainly a grower and will get you singing along. (7/10)

Khalid - Young Dumb & Broke

With a slow gruff swagger this takes a bit to settle in but it's cool tempo and sway works really well. (6.5/10)

Morrissey - Spent the Day in Bed

Though I may not be a fan of the man himself, he does produce a good solo single once in a while and here is his latest, a catchy and quirky electronic-influenced number with some nicely woven in political themes. (7/10)

Rejjie Snow feat. Pell - Virgo

Every so often we come across a piece of pop-grime that grabs us and this week it's this catchy and quirky track from Rejjie Snow. (6/10)

Sam Smith - Too Good At Goodbyes

Another strong tear-jerker from Sam Smith that has echoes of his James Bond theme, pulling together touching lyrics with a soaring and building style. (7.5/10)

Superfood - Unstoppable

The heavily compressed verses are perhaps a little weird but the bouncy, poppier chorus and similar elements scattered through the song makes up for it. (6/10)
