SuRie & Jess Glynne on The Graham Norton Show

Just realised that I hadn’t blogged for a while for here’s my latest. Caught a performance by our Eurovision entry, SuRie, the other day performing her song Storm, and I have to admit that even though it was a very good song with edge, coolness and that Eurovision sound to it unfortunately I didn’t find it that favourable and found it to be somewhat forgettable if I’m going to be honest with you. For me, a lot of this is that a lot of the songs that you hear on the Eurovision Song Contest just seem to be about love, which if I’m going to be honest just seem to get a little bland after a while. But that’s just me with my opinion but feel free to disagree, but in a respectable manner if you please.

Now I haven’t heard from this lovely lady in a while but was glad I saw her perform again, and she’s got what I can only describe as a power-house of a voice. I’ll Be There, the new song by Jess Glynne just an incredible song in it’s own right and one that I just can’t get bored of even if I was to listen to it on repeat for 30+ minutes. Though she hasn’t been in the music scene for many years she’s slowly gaining momentum and she’s got one of the most incredible voices since Adele and Etta James. She’s that good. Jess is a whirlwind of a talent and her performance alone are magnetic. All you need is just her, a few musicians and she can quite simply command the stage.

Lower Than Atlantis (& co) on The Radio

Found myself listening to Had Enough by Lower Than Atlantis, Ain’t Got Far To Go by Jess Glynne on Radio 1 on the way back from work, and I have to admit, though I’m not a huge fan of Atlantis I found myself enjoying it. Has a mature sound to it. Ain’t Got Far To Go I’ve heard a few times already and already like it. Also there was a special track by Declan McKenna who I mentioned in a previous post. The track was called The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home and though I only heard 20 seconds worth it sounded good.
