Song of the week:
Tigertown — 'Warriors'
We last wrote about Tigertown when their 95% amazing 'Papernote' EP came out last year; they've ramped up the pop for 'Warriors' and the results are quite spectacular.
Wrong of the week:
HRVY feat Redfoo — 'Holiday'
This. This. THIS is what happens when people are signed off the back of social media. HRVY has 1.2m Instagram followers, 900K followers on Musical.ly and over 40m combined videos, which is all very nice but it doesn't make 'Holiday' anything other than the worst pop launch of 2017. You wouldn't even find this sort of hapless, ambition-free songwriting in a Vamps album track. Naturally, the addition of Redfoo (?) doesn't help.
- The Sound Of Arrows song we wrote about yesterday is still amazing.
- The Kesha song we wrote about yesterday is also still amazing.
- The Selena Gomez song we wrote about yesterday isn't as good as 'Bad Liar' is it?
- We'd have included the great new Cyn single quite high in the playlist but it's not on Spotify.
- The new MY song has 'a touch of the Jeppos', doesn't it?
- Bonzai could probably save pop without too much effort.
