New Music Review #95

Let's have another ten songs you need to hear!

Fall Out Boy - The Last Of The Real Ones

'Fall Out Boy' continue to release some great singles with great beats and catchy rhythms, and this is another strong one. (7/10)

FELIN - 21st Century

'21st Century' is a punky number with hints of the Ting Tings at the time of their first album, but with much more bite. Catchy and interesting, this is a cool little indie hit. (7/10)


Flora Cash - Roses On Your Dress

'Roses On Your Dress' is a beautifully sung and flowing ballad held up by Cash's very listenable and emotional voice, with the simple production escalating well, with the Enigma-like breakdown adding to the relaxing and touching feel. (7/10)

Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso (feat. Florida Georgia Line & watt) - Let Me Go

A little bit clubbier in production than I was expecting from Steinfeld, but this collaboration of four artists works well, giving a bit more bite to their regular country sound with a powerful chorus. (7/10)

Hermitage Green - Lions Share

With a dark swagger in its verse leading into a more positive and faster bridge and chorus this is a building indie number that stands out as a great Kasabian meets Kings of Leon style number with strong production values and interesting use of instrumentation. (7/10)

Iffy Orbit - Not Good Enough

'Not Good Enough' is a smooth and gentle downbeat slice of electronic-indie with a chilled out vibe that compliments the introspective lyrics. (6.5/10)

Jordan Klassen - Housefly

'Housefly' is a delightfully classical sounding stripped back number with Klassen's ethereal and gentle vocals complimenting the string sounds beautifully. (7/10)

Kelly Clarkson - Love So Soft

Quite different from what you'd expect from Clarkson this rnb-enfused number gives a bit of polish and variety to her usual sound. Nice. (7/10)

The Moods - P.O.P (Profit Over People)

One of my favourite songs around at the moment, this is a political-heavy tune but one that will get you dancing as well, it's mix of upbeat dance and fast-paced grime and RNB work really well together with hints of the LaFontaines. Brilliant. (8/10)

Tom Dibb -  Hit The Road

'Hit The Road' is a delightful little pop-country number with an ear-pleasing stripped back vibe and a positive, optimistic tone that will get the edges of your mouth curling into a smile. Plus it's very singable. (7/10)
