November is almost out so the closer Christmas comes, the easier Mondays become. However, we’re still here to help you kick off the week with our #MusicMonday, a great soundtrack that includes every worth-listening new tune. “Skin” - Kyla La Grange British songstress Kyla La Grange has her third studio album in the works and after the release of lead single “So Sweet”, she strikes back with the second sample from it, titled “Skin”. The track serves as a sensual tune with heartbreaking lyrics and vulnerable vocals, that go hand in hand with the sexy mood and some sort of darkness of the bass-y, experimental kind of the song’s electronic production. “Live Young Die Free” - FLETCHER Former The X Factor USA contestant Cari Fletcher now goes by just FLETCHER and has followed-up her impressive tune “War Paint” with an equally decent new single, “Live Young Die Free”. The Jamie Kenney-produced and R. City-co-penned track celebrates youth in a big way and serves as the right kind of pop music. Uplifting and cheerful, with a catchy chorus hook and sing-along-ready lyrics. “Smaller” - Erik Hassle Our Swedish addiction is once again satisfied by one of our beloved veterans, Erik Hassle. Following “Natural Born Lovers”, the crooner further previews his full-length LP with another new tune, titled “Smaller”. The sound is extremely catchy and cheerful, with a summer-happy kind of vibe. However, the track is an upbeat and piano-driven break-up anthem with melancholic lyrics and some vocals filled with heartache to go by.
“Where Do We Go” - LION BABE After working with Disclosure on “Hourglass”, Brooklyn-based duo LION BABE, formed by Jillian Hervey and Lucas Goodman, deliver another sample from their upcoming, debut studio album Begin. This one is titled “Where Do We Go” and finds the two putting their dancing shoes on and taking us back to the 70′s for a disco night out. With some serious hand claps and a soulful approach, the song is definitely an amazing dancefloor-ready throwback tune. “Gone Missing” - Shift K3Y feat. BB Diamond Multi-talented Lewis Shay Jankel aka Shift K3Y makes sure to deliver a perfect follow-up to this year’s Off The Record EP with new single “Gone Missing”. With guest vocals from London-based songstress BB Diamond and co-penned by Becky Hill, the track serves as yet another impressive sample of old-school-leaning British garage music, offering a danceable melody alongside some soulful vocals.
“Borrowed Time” - FRANCES British emerging songstress FRANCES just released her sophomore EP Let It Out, but she ain’t stopping for a minute and strikes back with a brand-new single, called “Borrowed Time”. With ballads being her comfort zone, she now joins forces with Disclosure’s Howard Lawrence and delivers a stunning result. With minimal keys paving the way, the track serves as a playful dance-pop anthem full of electronic elements that compliment her vocal rendition. “Naturally” - James Crooks feat. Page IV James Crooks is an up and coming Australian producer just made his way to the scene with debut single, “Naturally”. Enlisting the soulful vocals of another Melbourne-based newcomer Page IV, the track features a different yet instant kind of alternative-pop production. It brings together some elegant electro-infused elements and a hip-hop-influenced beat for the songstress to sing over. If anything, this definitely makes him one to watch! “Breakfast” - Fleur East With her debut record Love, Sax And Flashbacks arriving in stores in a couple of weeks, former The X-Factor contestant makes sure to deliver a great follow-up to debut single “Sax”, called “Breakfast”. She’s flirty in the lyrics and has a more playful kind of pop mood, but the funk is still there with those strings going wild. Despite the serious 80′s-inspired disco mood, the tune is extremely modern and seems fresh, bringing the oldies into today’s standards. “Touch” - KLOE Having caught our attention with first couple of singles “Grip” and “Feel”, 17-year-old Glasgow-based songstress KLOE is now back with her best offering yet, “Touch”. Laid-back and ethereally spacey, the song serves as an experimental electro-pop production that slowly builds into an addictive chorus hook. The production is synth-heavy and atmospheric all the way, while she exquisitely sings the sophisticated lyrics. “Escalate” - Tsar B Up and coming, independent Belgian songstress Tsar B makes quite a big entrance with debut single, “Escalate”, about people’s lack of wisdom and sense. Co-produced alongside Oliver Symons, the track serves as an extemely experimental combination of the new era’s electro-R&B approach and some serious Middle Eastern influences. Her vocals stand strong on top of hard-hitting bass and other electronic elements, while other times echo in the back. Special Guest: “All I Ask” - Adele Since 25 came out this past Friday, there was no chance Adele could be missing from this week’s playlist. However, she’ll only be featured as a special guest since she has not made the album available for streaming and there’s no audio for Bruno Mars-co-crafted highlight “All I Ask”. The track serves as a simple yet really effective piano ballad that compliments her exquisite vocals, finding her singing the sentimental lyrics all vulnerable.
