ENG: Spanish boyband Auryn try their hand with dance-pop in their new single, titled "Heartbreaker". This is a big step forward for them, as it is by far their most solid and best produced single. Auryn's merit resides in the fact that they refuse to let their story play out the same way almost every Spanish band … Continue reading Auryn – Heartbreaker: Nuevo single, nuevo sonido.
Radio 2 premiered today a second song from Girls Aloud's upcoming 'Ten' album, titled 'Beautiful Cause You Love Me'. It'll apparently be the second single after 'Something New', and well. I mean, it could have been better. It's a ballad, and Girls Aloud have never been a ballads kinda band. It's also not a Girls … Continue reading Girls Aloud – Beautiful Cause You Love Me
Hi readers! Sorry for the lack of updates lately but Girls Aloud's single (see previous post) left me speechless and unable to function properly all this time. I'm just joking. (Kinda). This month I became a writer for WhatCulture and here's what I've written so far: A Million Lights Tour Review Something about Kylie's The … Continue reading Azealia, One Direction, Tegan and Sara, Xtina and more
It's not strange to have had reservations about the return of Girls Aloud. A year break and a 3-album promise became a 3-year break and a Greatest Hits that feels more like a goodbye than a hello. During those three years, some of their solo careers took off and some fell faster than Felix Baumgartner, and … Continue reading Girls Aloud – Something New (New Single)
Little Mix have premiered their new single, titled 'DNA', today. This song is the band's second single, third, if we count the obligatory X Factor Winner Christmas single (but we don't). 'DNA' is noticeably darker than 'Wings', a substantial change from a poppy, light, fun sound to a much darker vibe that reminds me of … Continue reading Little Mix – DNA
'September' is the new single by electronic pop artist St. Lucia, and it is undoubtedly his strongest yet. As opposed to his previous self-titled EP, that offered a decent 80's influenced chilled dance pop, 'September' doesn't hold back one bit, and it is as magnificent and addictive as it can be. It starts with … Continue reading St. Lucia – September
Tegan and Sara - Closer Tegan and Sara are kind of an alternative band, but they've wandered into the pop world more than once and always with success. I was obsessed with their Tiesto collaboration for ages and I sense another obsession coming with 'Closer', their new single. It premieres today and it has a … Continue reading From Tegan and Sara to Ke$ha: some great pop singles to enjoy this week!
Kylie has unveiled the video for her track 'Flower', a track that she performed during her 'X' Tour in 2008, despite never making it into the album, perhaps because it didn't fit with the electronic theme. She's officially releasing it now, with a beautiful orchestral arrangement and a video directed by Kylie herself and shot in … Continue reading Kylie Minogue – Flower
The new One Direction single, titled 'Live While We're Young' is all over the internet today and it's awesome. As soon as the first verses start, it reminds me to Katy Perry, then as it goes on there are some P!nk vibes, but ultimately, it sounds like a One Direction track that could have … Continue reading One Direction – Live While We’re Young
Christina's new single, 'Your Body' leaves nothing to the imagination. With a chorus made of 'All I wanna do/is f*ck your body', it would seem that the singer is relying on controversy to sell, and that would be true if it wasn't because the track is an absolute bomb. This is no 'Bionic' material, 'Your … Continue reading Some amazing new music for your ears: Xtina, Kanye, Robbie and more
Alicia Keys is back with a new single, 'Girl On Fire' that comes in two different versions. The first version, titled Inferno, is a collaboration with a back-to-roots Nicki Minaj, who leaves all the pop and silly voices aside this time and simply delivers her verses in a way that's reminiscent of her first collaborations. The Bluelight … Continue reading Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire
Ellie Goulding bleeds through her nose and sometimes has no eyebrows in her new, very strange video for 'Anything Could Happen', the introduction single for her new album 'Halcyon', to be released in October 8th. Leaving the weirdness of the video aside (though I have to say, the photography is brilliant), the song is actually incredible, … Continue reading Ellie Goulding – Anything Could Happen
