It’s Music Monday or as I call it Songs of the Week day! As always I have picked my six favourites out of Friday’s new releases and here they are. Start the playlist and continue reading.
MUNA’s I Know A Place is the first song today. The synthpop trio from Los Angeles will release their debut album About U next year and this is the first single released from it. I Know A Place “was written for queer folks, for people of color, for immigrants, for those who have been made to feel unsafe in their own skin”, the band declared on their Twitter.
The Arrow and the Aim by Nadia Reid is the lead single of her upcoming second album. The alternative folk singer from New Zealand created a blissful song, that is profound and intelligent.
Indie pop rock band Milo Greene shared their new We Kept the Lights On on Friday. It’s a song full of harmonies and has an instrumentation, that has urgency and drive. And it’s hauntingly beautiful.
Next is Independence Day by Mahalia. The British singer-songwriter from Leicester, who has written her first song at the age of eight, can’t be put into the corner of one genre. Her newest song however, is a catchy and emotional R&B track.
Yes, this is happening – The Rolling Stones made it onto my Songs of the Week. The iconic band released a covers album to pay tribute to their inspirations and blues legends. Blue And Lonesome is the title track of this compilation which has been recorded live. Due to this the sound of it is amazing – sizzling and raw.
Wild Flowers by Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes is the last track for today. The song is taken from the band’s upcoming second album Modern Ruin. It is a romantic rock anthem, that’s very energeticand bold. And it makes you want to pick daisies, which is a bit cruel in winter, but the song is still great.
And here we go – your new music fix for this week. Which one of the Songs of the Week is your favourite? Please comment below, I would love to hear from you.
Enjoy your week!
