Week 50! Two weeks left of 2014 and guess who still hasn't starting anything mildly to do with the ending of 2014... it's me! I also haven't bought any Christmas goods (i.e. cards or presents) yet so we're right on track. At least this old thing is still plodding along.
Keep up to date with all of the daily goings-on over at WIIHAMB Daily.
South London based 17 year old musician Raye is next up in a line of The BRIT School’s pop sensations to be. ‘Bet U Wish’ is taken from her debut EP ‘Welcome to the Winter’ which is free to download now over on her website.
You’ve never heard vocals so pure until you’ve heard Emily Burns. ‘Counting Seconds’ is three and half minutes of beautiful and heartfelt simplicity. At only 20 years old, there are clearly huge things around the corner for the English singer/songwriter.
You’ve never heard Blink 182 quite like this. Devon Baldwin manages to transform Blink 182’s pop punk anthem into a pretty electro-pop song.
Twenty year old French DJ Madeon has returned with his epic new track ‘You’re On’ featuring rising star Kyan on vocals. ‘You’re On’ follows the more commercial pop dance route that we heard from Madeon with ‘The City’ and will no doubt hit the big time over the festive period.
BBC Sound of 2015 vs Blog Sound 2015
By far the coolest thing I’ve been asked to do since I started WIIHAMB is to participate in The Blog Sound of 2015. The Blog Sound poll acts as an alternative to the BBC poll, voted for by bloggers. Take a look at the artists who made the longlist as well as my views on the whole shebang.
By chance on the day I went to see Vinnie Caruana last month this track brought itself back into the forefront of my memory. Probably my favourite Set Your Goals song and Vinnie’s verse is killer.
'Amnesia' follows 'Blood Flow' which we posted last month from London based production outfit Ritual. December has seen Ritual also release their debut EP 'The Fall'. 'Amnesia' is piano-led, emotional and features 17 year old upcoming rapper Chester Watson.
'It's About Time' is the new single from Light You Up, taken from their debut album due for release in January. A great pop punk single with a catchy chorus. If this track is anything to go by, the album's going to be pretty great.
December playlists so far: YouTube / Spotify / Deezer
