5 new firecrackers to boost your weekend…
Go for it, Ellie…
‘Those Are The Days’ by THE HACIENDAS
The Mancs nail it again with this jagged jackhammer. The Haciendas prove
once more that guitar rock is alive and bloody kicking. An irresistible pace,
a head-over-heels drive, impassioned vocals, a blazing chorus and a
frantic-as-fuck guitar solo. Hail hail!
Tom Smith (frontman) “It’s a celebration of those days at music festival, which will
soon be returning. We all cannot wait for the return of live music, the music scene is
going to go absolutely nuts, like one massive party and like the chorus states, ‘nothing
will ever beat this feeling’.”
Start the party here…
Still love you, Shirley…
‘Miss Those Days’ by TRAVIS JAMES feat. Esteva
A vocal beauty. A sepia-colored musing. Lovesick, pondering and tender.
Romantic melancholia at its emotive best. “It’s the nostalgic story of two
people that have moved on but both still feel a sense of attachment to each
‘Heavy’ by SUG DANIELS (Delaware, US)
For some reason, this up-and-coming artist reminded me of ‘Little’ Stevie Wonder when this song reached my sensitive ears for the first time while watching his video. I guess because he’s young and black with an inspiring voice and an HQ talent for songwriting.
This debut single is about “the horrible awkwardness of having romantic desires for a friend but not being sure if the feeling is mutual.” A very promising start.
Listen/watch right here…
See/hear you next week, music junkies…
