Welcome the first single from Jacob Banks‘ highly anticipated, upcoming album.
‘Unknown (To You)’ is a cinematic version of ‘Unknown’, which was originally featured on Jacob’s ‘The Paradox’ EP. It again features beautiful string arrangements, but Jacob’s vocals are more rugged and emotive.
Sounds like: Rationale, Aloe Blacc, Rag’n’Bone Man, Emeli Sandé, Sam Smith, Salt Ashes, Ben Khan
Exciting pop star, Billie Eilish shares her latest track called ‘hostage’.
It’s a stripped back song, but despite its all acoustic feel, and much like all of Billie’s music, there is a darker side, as she explains “”hostage” is a song that borders on and explores the unhealthy side of love. Billie points out “when you are so in love that you feel like you can’t be without them and you can’t see them with someone else. It is not a healthy feeling but I think everyone feels it at some point.”
Her “dont smile at me” EP is out now via Darkroom/Interscope Records and has been produced by Billie’s 19-year-old brother Finneas O’Connell.
Sounds like: Dua Lipa, Astronomyy, Ella Vos, Tempers, Charlotte Cardin
The Agostina Gálvez-directed video for ‘Keep Running’ by the Brooklyn based songstress oozes sex appeal and instantly takes us back to that Flake advert from the 80’s, but this time it’s a mic and not a chocolate bar.
Tei Shi’s debut album, ‘Crawl Space’, is out 31 March on Downtown/Interscope Records.
Moving his way into our hearts is British-born musician and trained dancer, Leon Else, and the video for his new release called ‘Dance’.
Much like depression, the beats in the retro-ridden track are erratic and unpredictable, but Leon pushes through to his own drum, exclaiming, “The song is about dancing as a way to make depression go away…It is about how music can be like medicine and finding ways to get through life by yourself. For me, that’s moving and being physical.”
