ICYMI - This Week on WIIHAMB - 2014 Week #47

In case you missed it - You shouldn't have, but just in case you did.

Keep up to date with all of the daily goings-on over at WIIHAMB Daily.

Model Aeroplanes’ Soundcloud bio reads something like “fun music that you can drink cocktails to” and I think they’ve hit the nail right on the head there. Such a great feel good track from the Scottish four piece.

'The Life, The Party, The Scene' is the new single taken from Hey Vanity's lengthy mini-album 'Blindfolds' released earlier this year. Hey Vanity produce no nonsense refreshing rock music and this track is a perfect example of that.

London based three piece Ritual do moody electronic tracks like you wouldn’t believe. With vocals that sound something like Sam Smith and beats like Jamie Woon, ‘Blood Flow’ is four minutes of stunning complex chill out vibes.

In the most unlikely collaboration of the year by far, we bring you Lumidee and Years & Years. Not only does Lumidee give this Years & Years track two new verses but she also lends her vocals to the chorus and they work so well up against Olly Alexander’s. Skip to 1.21 to get straight to the song.

In the past months, Charlie Barclay-Webb has become a firm favourite here at WIIHAMB. This week he’s released an acoustic cover of Ariana Grande and The Weeknd’s ‘Love Me Harder’ and it’s honestly one of the most beautiful and fitting covers we’ve ever heard.

Throwback Thursday
Just when you thought that music videos from the 90s couldn't get any more ridiculous.

Our definite stand out from the new volume of Punk Goes Punk is Slaves’ version of The Neighbourhood’s ‘Sweater Weather’. If you pretend that it’s not a cover, it just fits perfectly into Slaves/Jonny Craig’s catalogue, something about it just works.

After featuring on Rudimental’s debut album, it’s not surprising that DJ Fresh has tapped Ella Eyre up for a feature slot on his new single ‘Gravity’. Although this track isn’t particularly standout or groundbreaking for DJ Fresh, Ella Eyre’s super strong vocal performance makes up for that.

Auqalung is somewhat of a veteran in today’s electronic music scene and it’s impressive that an artist like Matt Hales has come back with something that still sound so relevant. Lianne La Havas’ vocals lend themselves beautifully to this track as well.

'The Night' is the perfect follow up to previous single to 'Warm On A Cold Night' from London based duo Honne. 'The Night' is slowburning and a pefect listen on dark evening, making you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
