This week’s singles picks of the week consist of artistes who are pretty new to the world of music. Apart from All Saints, every artiste in this list started making music in the late 2000s or after 2010. Even though they are comparatively fresh in the industry, the music they make is quite interesting to listen to.
“Where Are You Now?” by Royal Blood
British blues rock/garage rock duo Royal Blood are back with a bang after two years. “Where Are You Now?” is a bluesy garage rock song with a stoner rock vibe. It was inspired by HBO’s new TV show “Vinyl,” and was also featured on the show.
“This is War” by All Saints
British-Canadian girl group All Saints regrouped recently after a decade-long hiatus and are gearing up to release their fourth album “Red Flag,” due April 8, 2016. “This is War” is the third single from the album.
“Inside Out” by The Chainsmokers featuring Charlee
American electro-house/progressive house duo The Chainsmokers released their new single “Inside Out” this week as a follow-up the smash hit “Don’t Let Me Down.” The track borders around EDM and trap music.
“Moving Mountains” by Skylar Grey
American pop singer Skylar Grey went back to her folk roots in “Moving Mountains,” a song from her upcoming third album. The song has a similar minimalistic instrumental arrangement to her second album “Cannonball.”
“I Found A Girl” by The Vamps
This song from pop rock band The Vamps’ sophomore album “Wake Up” is about falling in love with a lesbian. The band recently released it as a single.
“Am I Pretty?” by The Maine
American indie rock/alternative rock band The Maine’s new music video for “Am I Pretty?” gives out a powerful message about loving oneself. The song is from their fifth studio album, “American Candy.”
“Free” by Broods
New Zealand-based indie pop/ electro-pop duo Broods released the new song “Free” this week as the lead single from their yet-untitled second album. The track sounds heavier compared to any of their previous releases.
