A recap of the week’s finest new music.
Carly Rae Jepsen – Cut To The Feeling
What else is Carly hiding? Do we need to submit an FOI request to get our hands on all the discarded E•MO•TION bangers? “Cut To The Feeling” was left off the album and is now seeing the light of day on the soundtrack to the movie Leap!
Lion Babe – Hit The Ceiling
New York duo Lion Babe have dropped “Hit The Ceiling”, the latest track from the forthcoming Summer release. It’s classic Lion Babe with its supremely tight blend of funk, soul and blissful electronics – nothing but summer-ready good vibes.
Allie X – Need You
Allie X continues her intimidatingly long run of brilliant singles with “Need You”, an emotionally charged duet with Valley Girl. The track will appear on Allie X’s debut full length LP COLLXTION II which will be released on 9 June via Twin Music.
Alex Lustig – No More (Ft. Akacia & OnCue)
Belgian artist Alex Lustig has shared brooding new track “No More”, a sophisticated and warped twist on nu-R&B. "With this track my goal was to mix ambient deep chords with hip-hop and slight trap elements," said Alex. "The idea was to have a girl and a guy respond to each other. I love when there’s a man and a woman on a song singing together. I feel like there’s always something special and real to it. So I wanted to make that with my ambient / hip hop touch to it with a chill drop."
Pia Mia – I'm A Fan ft. Jeremih
There was no way a track featuring both Pia Mia and Jermih was going to be anything but perfect. A track about obsession, sung over a summer-tinged beat, it’s unquestionably Pia – sophisticated, sexy and leaves us clamouring even more for that debut LP.
Amber Mark - Lose My Cool (Couros Remix)
Amber Mark’s “Lose My Cool” has been remixed which gives us another chance to bang about what a gem this track is. “Lose My Cool” appeared on Amber’s debut 3.33 am EP, a kaleidoscopic mix of jazz, soul, hip-hop and downtempo electronica. Spin Couros’ playful edit of the track below.
