Iggy Azalea

“Team”

Yet another great song by the lovely singer from down under. Team hits all the right notes and both the lyrics and tune become an amazing hook. This latest offering is well and truly undeniable and offers new levels of raw energy and just makes great listening. Once again Iggy proves that she’s an independent woman and that she knows exactly how to handle herself. This is slowly starting to grow on me and I enjoy listening to it.

Meghan Trainor

“No”

I’ve heard this a couple of times and unfortunately I just overly impressed as it seems like she’s gone too much into a different style of music just a little too soon. I admit I’m not a huge fan of her and I did like “All About That Bass” and “Marvin Gaye” duet with Charlie Puth. I know it has some melody and is a little bit catchy but unfortunately I just didn’t get it. As an artist I like her but I just didn’t favour this song.

Jamie T

“Tin Foil Boy”

I heard this on Radio 1 a couple of days ago and I was deeply hooked within 1 minute of listening, it was even ‘track of the day’. Tin Foil Boy demonstrates Jamie’s ability as both a singer and songwriter. It’s got the right pitch, the right hook and the melody to go with it. Whenever I hear this is just sounds as raw and edgy as the last time. Packed with the right amount of angst and anger and the song’s just great to listen to, can’t get bored easily with this.

BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Exeter: The Highlights

One Republic opened the second day of the weekend on the mainstage kickstarting another day of live music presented by Scott Mills, Annie Mac, Cel Spellman and Greg James. With coverage featuring live perfomances by The Last Shadow Puppets (as well as an interview), Alessia Cara and The Weeknd. DJ/Producer Alesso treated everyone to an impressive set in the In New Music We Trust stage, and what a performance it was. There was live radio coverage of Iggy Azalea which unfortunately had to be cut short due to strong language. Pity, it was on my favourite song. There were new videos from Nick Jonas for his new single ‘Close’ with Tove Lo; Tinie Tempah & Zara Larsson’s ‘Girls Like’ and Jake Bugg ‘Gimme The Love’. There was also a special video from Taylor Swift featuring Greg James (lucky beggar) for her single Blank Space. Panic At The Disco did an amazing cover of Bohemian Rhapsody, whilst shirtless (I kid you not). However all attention goes to Coldplay who stole the show as the headlining act closing the weekend event with an amazing set on BBC4.
