SLOW CLUB HAVE A NEW SINGLE, (APTLY TITLED) EVERYTHING IS NEW
The Sheffield duo have transformed their sound on record Complete Surrender, though this track sees them return to the stripped-back sound that launched their career. We’re taking a break from the new Thom Yorke (have we reached overkill levels there already?) to enjoy it.
NEW, NOTICEABLY POPPY, CUTS FROM KENDRICK LAMAR AND AZEALIA BANKS
Lamar teased the release of single ‘i’ on Twitter last week, and has dropped the self-affirming track today.
After playing London’s Brixton Academy over the weekend, Harlem’s Banks (who, to be fair, most people have given up on since her failure to release her debut album yet) also placed her single Chasing Time on SoundCloud.
Both artists are taking a decidedly more pop direction on these songs, which would make for interesting results with their fanbases. Have a listen, and see what you think.
