For #Two4Tunesday this week, we’re bringing you new music from Little Mix and Passion Pit!
Little Mix rose to public attention in the 8th series of The X Factor in the UK, when the four auditioned separately. They failed the bootcamp round as soloists, but were offered to be put through to the next round, as a group. They went on to win that series of The X Factor and were the first ever group to win the series.
The group have since gone on to release two successful albums and are now gearing up to release a third. On top of that, the group helped to co-write Britney Spears’ latest hit, ‘Pretty Girls’ and back in 2013, Perrie Edwards, from the group is engaged to Zayn Malik (former member of The X Factor‘s One Direction).
This single, ‘Black Magic’, is the first single to be taken from their as-yet-untitled, third album and sees the group adopt a slightly different sound to their previous releases.
‘Black Magic’ is due out on 10th July 2015 and is available to pre-order on iTunes now – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/black-magic-single/id994616224

For our next track we have the latest single from Passion Pit, ‘Lifted Up (1985)’. Passion Pit consists of lead vocalist Michael Angelakos and a series of live members but none of these are permanent; see Passion Pit is the brainchild of the singer who recorded an EP as a belated Valentine’s Day gift to his then girlfriend, which then gained public attention and took off from there.
This particular song is taken from the band’s third album, Kindred and has a fantastically captivating Indie-Pop vibe; it’s a stunning song.
Passion Pit recently teamed up with Madeon for a banging’ electronica track too! (Check out our post by clicking on Madeon)
‘Lifted Up (1985)’ can be bought from iTunes now – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/lifted-up-1985/id965405199?i=965405203
