Steps – “Scared of The Dark” Video Premiere

Steps have released the music video for their comeback single Scared of The Dark taken from their forthcoming album Tears On The Dancefloor.

The video is shot against a green screen with some lens flare effects to try hide the fact that it was shot on a small budget. Even with the budget the video looks glossy and Steps look great in it. The video at times is reminiscent of the Up! video by The Saturdays. The video features a brand new Steps dance routine which already looks iconic.

Check out the Scared of The Dark video below:

Tears On The Dancefloor is available April 21st.

Harry Styles – “Sign of The Times” Debut Single

Published April 07th 2017
Filed under News

Harry Styles has premiered his debut single Sign of The Times in a 2 hour long feature as part of Nick Grimshaw’s BBC Radio 1 show.

Sign of The Times is a rock ballad which suits Harry’s vocals perfectly, building on the rockier One Direction songs which he shone on. It’s a massive song but probably not what people expected as Harry’s debut single. It’s probably the type of song that will do extremely well if it catches on and gives Harry a new audience.

Halsey – “Now Or Never” New Single & Video

Published April 05th 2017
Filed under News,Videos

Halsey has released her first single Now Or Never from her upcoming second album hopeless fountain kingdom.

Now Or Never sounds like more of the same from Halsey’s debut Badlands. It was produced by Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat and Happy Perez. It also sounds a bit too similar to I’m A Ruin by Marina And The Diamonds and Needed Me by Rihanna.

Now Or Never is not what I expected for the first single after the success of CloserHalsey’s massive collaboration with The Chainsmokers last year. At best Now Or Never is an album track. Hopefully hopeless fountain kingdom has more single worthy material on it.

As well as releasing the single, Halsey premiered the video too.

Louisa Johnson – “Best Behaviour” Video Premiere

Louisa Johnson has released the video for Best Behaviour, the second single to be taken from her forthcoming debut album.

The video for Best Behaviour was shot in a desert outside L.A. at an airplane graveyard. It doesn’t look too different to S Club 7’s Hollywood 7 video for Show Me Your Colours which was shot at the same location in 2001.

After initially not thinking much of the song, Best Behaviour has become a grower and now with the video too I think this is one of the best songs of 2017 so far.

Nelly Furtado – “The Ride” Album Breakdown

Published March 30th 2017
Filed under Reviews

Nelly Furtado releases her 6th studio album The Ride tomorrow, March 31st. Released independently through her own record label Nelstar, The Ride sees Nelly experiment with a new sound while still sounding like a Nelly Furtado album.

All 12 tracks on The Ride are produced by John Congleton. The vocal production and Nelly’s singing style are a lot less grating than 2012’s Spirit Indestructible which often verged on screeching.

The highlights are Carnival Games, Magic, Arlissa cover Sticks And Stones and closing ballad Phoenix which was the first track Nelly recorded for the album and shows off a different singing style for Nelly.

Here’s a breakdown of the tracks:

Cold Hard Truth
Carnival Games
Paris Sun
Sticks And Stones
Pipe Dreams
Tap Dancing
Right Road
