As universities continue to go back, we look at the final week of September with a nostalgic fondness. Already we’ve had stunning album releases from Foo Fighters and The Killers and this week completes a great month of music with the release of Wolf Alice’s second studio record Visions Of A Life. Making a surprise return to music this week as well is pop’s most renowned diva Beyoncé, who lends her vocals to J Balvin’s track Mi Gente.
In the midst of the chaotic crisis that’s occurring across the Atlantic in the Caribbean, the US and Mexico, we often reflect on our fortunate geographical location and think how things could be very different were we to be in another place in the world. A band, who have suffered their own fair share of battles, both physically and mentally, are The Killers, the Las Vegas rock giants who return this week with a beautifully honest record in Wonderful Wonderful, an album which highlights the significant holes in the band’s relationships with each other as well as in their own lives.
Making a mark on the year is something that many artists dream to do, especially rising ones. Throughout 2017, we have seen a staggering amount of new artists break through into the mainstream, many of which have started to build a platform in which they can progress even further. This week’s Tracks of the Week highlights a number of rising stars who look to make their mark on 2017. Alongside these new artists are some of music’s best, including some who have returned unexpectedly but thankfully for our enjoyment. Here are our Tracks of the Week with in depth reviews.
With A Level results day kickstarting the beginning of new chapters for thousands of teenagers across the UK, there is a huge list of new music to greet the start of university preparation or the next stage in people’s lives. As summer starts to come to an end, we look back at the past few weeks with a sense of nostalgia whilst also looking forward to what is still to come. This week’s releases are headed up by Justin Bieber, who releases Friends, a collaboration with BloodPop.
July. For many it’s a chance to enjoy the rare sight of sun or the unpredictably chaotic summer holidays with children. For music fans, July has always been a month of big summer anthems, festivals and new records. This July is no different, with a stunning selection of huge tracks perfect for long summer nights or that rare unexpected day of rain that the UK summer is always akin to. We hope you enjoy the start to what should be a great month for everyone and here are our Tracks of the Week with in depth reviews.
As the first week of July comes to an end, it’s safe to say that the summer has truly started. We’ve already had a sensational Glastonbury plus whole list of further celebrations and this week’s new music continues to celebrate the best that music has to offer. What better to celebrate than with the rightful return of Kesha, an artist who has been through such a hard time over the last few years. She releases track Praying whilst superstar DJ Zedd teams up with former One Direction member Liam Payne for Get Low.
As we approach the summer, it seems as if celebrations are in order. The exam season is coming to an end for students, Glastonbury is just around the corner and a host of artists have just released new music for everyone to enjoy. Leading this week’s stunning collection of tracks are The Killers, who return for the first time since 2012 with The Man. Arcade Fire continue their preparation ahead of the release of upcoming album Everything Now, with the release of Creature Comfort.
