ICYMI - This Week on WIIHAMB - 2014 Week #45

In case you missed it - You shouldn't have, but just in case you did.
It was my birthday this week, YAY! No birthday related posts though I'm afraid, poor planning on my part.
Keep up to date with all of the daily goings-on over at WIIHAMB Daily.

Monday
After a slight name change, ‘Oh Wonder’ are back with their third installment of their year long project of releasing a new song every month. ‘Dazzle’ lives up to it’s name and is a bit more pop-py than previous releases ‘Shark’ and ‘Body Gold’.


Take Me Over' is the new single from Sydney-based dance duo Peking Duk. Despite being pretty big names in Australia, Peking Duk are yet to make huge waves worldwide but if there was a song to do that for them, it would be this one.


Tuesday
We’ve had a few new Chvrches tracks knocking about over the past couple of weeks but ‘Dead Air’ taken from the new Hunger Games film soundtrack is the real gem. ‘Dead Air’ is true to the sound of Chvrches’ first album but a little darker fitting with the film’s themes.


Wednesday
'Mediocre Shakespeare' is the opening track taken from Being As An Ocean's album 'How We Both Wondrously Perish' released earlier this year. The long and short of it is that everything taken from this album is impeccable so naturally this is as well.


Throwback Thursday
Way back when before Kevin Staff joined A Day To Remember, he was part of Four Letter Lie, who were then label mates of A Day To Remember on Victory Records.


Friday
'Human' is the beautiful new track from English duo Aquilo, produced by none other than WIIHAMB favourite SOHN. 'Human' remains enticing throughout with the electronic elements adding subtle twists and turns to this four minute journey.

Saturday
Luke Pickett has unveiled his new single ‘The Star in My Movie’ and it’s just as great as you’d expect. Pickett has all the potential to be a UK chart topping artist with his beautiful R&B tracks accompanied by his stunning vocals.


Proving that the alternative/R’n’B thing is firmly what Luke Pickett should be doing with this cover of Mario Winans’ 2004 hit ‘I Don’t Wanna Know’. Pickett gives the track a new lease of life and a much more contemporary vibe.
Sunday
'Playing me off' is the new track from WIIHAMB R&B favourite Barnaby. 'Playing Me Off' is sultry and stunning, with subtlety definitely being the key here. The track melts as it plays, creating this moody atmosphere that you're simply plunged into.


When an album starts with something as insane as ‘Bloodlines’ it’s obvious that Polar got it right with second album ‘Shadowed By Vultures’ released back in February. ‘Bloodlines’ now has a nice new visual of what Polar got up to over the summer to accompany track.

November playlists: YouTube / Spotify / Deezer
