Yesterday, I headed to The Boileroom, Guildford to see these guys in a Battle of the Bands competition, they put on a really good show, and it's been great to see them grow and progress, especially over the last few months, they've just released their debut singles and I've had them stuck in my head, which is always the sign of a really good song! Get 'Band Of Brothers' on iTunes here and the B-side here.
2. Ocean - Lauren Aquilina
This is Lauren's first single from her forthcoming and highly anticipated debut album. 'Ocean' is up for pre-order now (iTunes) and her second song from the album, 'Low', is being played on BBC Radio 1 this Sunday (20th Sep) from 5PM (GMT). On top of all this exciting music, Lauren's heading out on a mini-tour this October (tickets), she's set to have a very busy but exciting few months. Enjoy!
3. Don't Go - Rae Morris
'Don't Go' is being re-released as Coppafeel's charity single, this song is one of my favourites by Rae and I don't want to take away from the story of the video and song; so, just prepare yourself, and if you want to support a charity doing great things, download a copy here.
Kristen was formed in the late 1990s and have gone on to release seven albums. They are known for their beautifully original and abstract soundscapes, which lay down the foundations for their fantastic music. Here they are performing 'Endless Happiness' live for KEXP.
Thanks to this cover, over the past few weeks I've kept on finding myself humming or singing this song. 'Drag Me Down' is the latest single from One Direction, taken from their fifth studio album (the one before they go on hiatus...). The track debuted at the top of the charts in the UK, Ireland, France, Austria, Australia and New Zealand. But here's Dodie with a stunning stripped back cover - those choruses!!!
