Each week, The Courier’s Music Editors are working with Newcastle Student Radio to bring you the best new tracks from the week before…
Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassador & Bebe Rexha
Machine Gun Kelly is a hugely talented rapper and vocalist. His latest track was penned on the day of close friend Chester Bennington’s death and is completed X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha. One for down days.
– Toby Bryant, The Courier
It is Guy Garvey’s emotive lyrics and Elbow’s perfect balance between the gentle and the epic which saves this year’s otherwise very average John Lewis Christmas Advert. It is certainly the beauty of the song rather than the novelty of “Moz the Monster” that ought to be remembered from this.
– Ally Wilson, The Courier
Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
Don’t let the (quite frankly awful) name fool you, Aussie rockers Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are a musical force to be reckoned with. New track ‘Little Moon’ is no exception, pairing headbangable riffs with a euphoric, Floyd-esque vibe.
– Charlie Isaac, The Courier
‘Si t’étais là’
The incredible French singer Louane’s new self entitled album includes a mix of English and French tracks. Si t’étais là is a highlight with its beautiful melody questioning what would be said if you were here (Si t’étais là).
– Meg Smith, NSR
This latest release from Styles’ debut album is definitely making an impact. The track shows how much Styles has matured as an artist following his days in One Direction with a heavier compared to his other soft-rock sounding tracks on the album.
