Dave ft J Hus – Samantha
Alongside AJ Tracey, Dave took the grime scene by storm last year and his latest song ‘Samantha’ has kept that momentum running. Dave’s wordplay is second to none, and this track shows nothing less. The South London based rapper uses subtlety within his bars making TV references throughout and linking them to everyday occurrences.
The collaboration with J Hus allows for a mellow vibe not typically associated with the genre of grime but, regardless this single couldn’t have flowed any better.
Mastodon – Sultan’s Curse
At long last, after what has seemed an age, Mastodon are back and on full form with ‘Sultan’s Curse’. Whilst their brief stint in the two previous albums ventured into more radio friendly horizons, Mastodon are back to their earlier sounds doing what they know best. The perfect mixture of proggy riffs and melodic vocals show why Mastodon are at the higher tier of the metal genre. If this track is anything to go by, their upcoming album Emperor of Sand will be appearing on numerous albums of the year lists.
Rag ‘n’ Bone Man – Skins
The blues and soul singer emerged with this new track that starts off with a single set of beautiful vocals that allow for the introduction of the piano and drums. His debut album will be released on the 10
His debut album will be released on the 10th February and it is definitely something to look out for considering the mixture of blues and soul. A combination scarcest thought up in this era. A fresh artist creating refreshing music is what is needed right now
Lonely The Brave – Collider
Lonely The Brave dropped new single ‘Collider’ alongside an announcement for their new EP release, Diamond Days EP. ‘Collider’ is a typical alternative rock song. It’s formulaic and does nothing groundbreaking and exciting, but despite the lack of experimentation Lonely The Brave put together a thoroughly good listen.
David Jake’s vocals are as powerful as ever and tie in perfectly with the rest of the track. These 2 elements work together to create a track that translates the intensity quickly into your emotions as you listen.
