ICYMI - This Week on WIIHAMB - 2014 Week #40

In case you missed it - You shouldn't have, but just in case you did.
There's a lot here this week so make sure you get stuck right in.
Keep up to date with all of the daily goings-on over at WIIHAMB Daily.

'Reminder' is the other end of the electronic spectrum to the usual trap we're used to from RL Grime and a lot of this is due to the addition of How To Dress Well's vocals. To those caught off guard this may seem like a pretty strange collaboration but it comes together astonishingly well.

Ben Howard’s version of Kiesza’s ‘Hideaway’ strips the song back completely and showcases how well he can do the whole pop thing should he ever want to go down that route.

September Round-Up
Have a look at all the important things that went on last month right here.

The influence of The 1975 on this Australian quintet The Never Ever is almost too apparent on their new single ‘Nightlife’ but that’s not at all a bad thing.

Indiana’s voice really shines through during this Live Lounge performance and sounds so pure. Rhodes is the perfect accompaniment and I would love to hear more collaborations by these two upcoming artists.

Throwback Thursday
I’d completely and utterly forgotten about this band which is pretty forgiveable considering Crossfade’s self titled debut album, from which this track is taken, was released ten years ago.

Halsey's back with new single ‘Hurricane’ sounds as though you can hear a storm brewing throughout the song and no doubt the tornado will well and truly hit when she drops her EP Room 93.

‘You’re the one for me’ is taken from Great Good Fine OK’s forthcoming EP and it’s definitely the most feel good song we’ve posted all week.

Excellent house track and definitely tipping this duo for big things in 2015. Absolutely gutted that the vocalist on this track goes uncredited though.

Another month, another acoustic State Champs song. ‘If I’m lucky’ is the second of the two brand new tracks to be unveiled from the EP. We’ve got to admit State Champs are very good at the acoustic thing as well as the whole pop punk thing.

Not for the faint hearted, Devil Sold His Soul are back and packing more of a punch than ever. ‘Unveiled’ is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP ‘BELONG ╪ BETRAY’ which is due for release in mid-November.

How do Eliza and the Bear make EVERY song that they write sound perfect for TV highlights compilations? ‘Talk’ features on the band’s ‘Light It Up’ EP which was released earlier this year.

October playlists so far: YouTube / Spotify / Deezer
