What’s Wrong With Changing?
Taking musical cues from Janet Jackson with autobiographical new single ‘What’s Wrong With Changing?’, Wallis Bird is setting out her stall for forthcoming album ‘Hands’, due out in May
D Cullen’s latest track has positive 80s vibes, bouncing along on a massive bassline and exploding with electronic bubbles, ‘Radio’ is a big, bold pop song with a huge hook and lyrics to suit
Megan O’Neill describes the video for her new single Wildfire as "the story of a grandfather helping his grandson through his first real loss in life. Much like the song itself, the video shares the message that that's what we are here for - to help each other, to shed layers and grow together"
Walshy aka Luke Walsh is taking his cues from jazz and funk on this solo release. Creamy guitar licks and soulful saxophone layer up with dreamy vocals and loose hip-hop beats.
Throwback: Le Galaxie feat. Elaine Mai
Staying with the saxophones, here’s a track was first released 10 years ago, but still sounds as fresh as a dew-soaked daisy. This is the updated version though and yes, there’s a killer sax solo at the end ….
