Carly Rae Jepsen – “I Really Like You”

When “I Really Like You” leaked over the weekend, many music sites were quick to herald it as the 2nd coming. Or better yet, the new “Call Me Maybe”.

The POPshock Introduces… The Young Professionals

The POPshock introduces and interviews The Young Professionals – an all-out explosive electropop duo set for international success this year!

Conor-Maynard-Talking-About March 01

Conor Maynard – “Talking About”

We had been briefed ahead of release that the new Conor Maynard single was a banger. But we never expected it actually be one. Jumping onto the whole house-pop sound (perhaps a few months too late, judging by Ne-Yo and MNEK’s recent struggles with it), it’s a track we see going beyond the teen market […]

Acre Tarn – “Dawn Faces”

What a chorus. Acre Tarn is the new music duo led by British singer/producer Anna-Louisa Etherington, that feel like a spiritual successor to Kate Bush from their Soundcloud alone, mixing powerful vocal delivery with cutting edge production and storytelling. The dark chorus of “Dawn Faces” paints a tortured canvas, with the chanting child choir shouting they’re […]

Amy Steele – “The Wolves” [Video]

Creepy, mysterious and haunting. That’s how we describe Amy Steele’s new music video for “The Wolves”, now on VEVO and embedded below. Amy is one to watch, after impressing many in the business last year with her eerie vocals and provocative lyrics. The below video is the first of two Amy filmed in Sweden, and so […]

Iggy Azalea – “Trouble (feat. Jennifer Hudson)”

There’s no way around it – “Trouble”‘s single release is purely to bide time between now and Iggy’s upcoming 2nd album and tour. That said, it’s pretty decent funky pop-rap and the cheaply-produced-yet-creative video makes it memorable. But yet again, it’s another “featuring ____” single (in this case, J.Hud) that makes Iggy look incapable of a […]

Jess Glynne – “Hold My Hand” [Video]

When a press release email opens with “Grammy Award winner”, you can’t do anything but sit upright. Congrats to Jess on her tremendous success in 2014, which we knew was set to continue the moment we heard “Hold My Hand” . The stunner has since released the glossy music video for the single, embedded below. We’re […]

Raleigh Ritchie – “The Greatest”

I first encountered singer and Game of Thrones actor Raleigh Ritchie last summer during the festival season, and noted he had potential to become the new face of the British urban scene… With the right material, of course. With new big-push single “The Greatest”, it feels like now is Raleigh’s time to blow-up big. Blending soulful […]

Miami Horror – “Love Like Mine (feat. Cleopold)”

Australian electro group Miami Horror have just released lead single “Love Like Mine”, from upcoming album ‘All Possible Futures’ (out April 21st). Featuring newcomer Cleopold, it is a bit of retro-pop perfection with synths-galore and sound effects that remind us of Alphabeat (RIP) and the soundtrack of Hotline Miami (which is the point, we guess?). 2015 is […]
