New Music Review 2018 #5

Ten more songs you have to hear!

Big Boi - All Night

Big Boi certainly takes us back to the highlights of classic Outkast with this pop-heavy sing-a-long song with some neat little production effects and a strong keyboard riff. Catchy. (7/10)

Craig David feat. Bastille - I Know You

A great collaboration between the singer and the band that is entirely unexpected and though both elements merge into each other a little the mix of their sounds works really well, creating a strong compilment of energies. (7/10)

GIRLI - Mr 10pm Bedtime

With the attitude of Chloe Howl and Pink this catchy pop number will get your feet tapping and your body moving - a great tune with balls. (7.5/10)

Marmozets - Major System Error 

Starting with a high energy opening and not relenting for the whole song this is a dramatically catchy number with a huge chorus and a Bloc Party feel. (8/10)

Moose Blood - Talk In Your Sleep

'Talk In Your Sleep' is a powerful, forward-driving rock number with a surprisingly poppy catchiness. A grower. (7/10)

Rick Parfitt - Without You

Sadly no longer with you, it would have been good to hear more from Parfitt on the strength of this first cut from his new, and only, solo album. As far removed from the dad rock of Status Quo as you can get, aside from the brief guitar solo, this is a touching, heartfelt number with hints of classic Rod Stewart. (7.5/10)

The Score - Legend

With a nod towards 'Fall Out Boy' and 'Imagine Dragons' this is a catchy hard-hitting, bassy rock number with plenty of balls. (7/10)

Simple Minds - Magic

Continuing to release a string of strong come back tracks this is a perky and catchy pop number with a memorable chorus. (7/10)

Superorganism - Everybody Wants To Be Famous

A joyful slice of electronic-pop with some great effects and a top radio-friendly vibe. Great fun! (7.5/10)

Turin Brakes - Wait

A strong comeback track from the indie band with a great fun rhythm and catchy pop vibe. (6.5/10)
