Troye Sivan – ‘Bloom’

Troye Sivan is South African-born, Australian singer, songwriter, actor and YouTuber who has been gathering a huge online following over the past few years.

Openly gay, Sivan describes ‘Bloom’ as a, ‘subversively queer song,’ that sees him take on the role of a passive guy losing his virginity. Although it’s full of innuendo, it is a really fun, subtle track that has an incredibly catchy chorus (but not in an obvious sense). It’s summery and deserves to be played loud…I expect his pride appearances this year will be huge!

No music video (as such) has been released, however a 3D animated lyric video, created by Jason Ebeyer, was released, featuring an animated version of Sivan floating through a fantasy land.


‘Bloom’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/bloom-single/1375827482



Jess Glynne – ‘I’ll Be There’

Jess Glynne is finally back with the first single since her 2015 debut, I Cry When I Laugh, indicating that her second album is on its way!

‘I’ll Be There’ is an uplifting track with very soulful and gospel-like qualities to it whilst maintaining a contemporary pop sound. It is a track that transcends as it progresses; this song makes it easy to see why she’s won a Grammy! I hope this is another Number 1 hit for her, like 2015’s debut, ‘Hold My Hand’.

The video itself doesn’t appear to have much of a narrative however the locations she performs in are pretty interesting and vibrant colours certainly play an important part throughout. Well worth a watch.


‘I’ll Be There’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/ill-be-there/1376766204?i=1376767301

#MellowMonday: Lewis Capaldi – ‘Fade’

Lewis Capaldi is a fantastic up-and-coming singer songwriter, hailing from Scotland. He is currently making huge waves on the music scene, with his debut tune having already hit over 20 million streams on Spotify and what’s more, his ticket sales are absolutely on fire!

One of his latest tunes, ‘Fade’, is a real beauty and is the opening track on his debut EP, Bloom.

What I love about this track is that his vocals are mature and sultry and somehow filled with a wisdom that’s beyond his years. This guy is set to become one of the next big house-hold names with a voice and style that sits somewhere between Tom Odell and James Arthur. This guy is truly an exciting talent – make sure you check him out live soon before he’s selling out arenas.

No official video has been released yet, but we’ll keep you posted as always.

Hey Muzik Speakerz!

March 2016 has been another great month and saw us turn 1 year old!

We did an interview with Lucy Spraggan and a review of her show, when she performed in Brighton and did a series of special birthday playlists for each themed day; #MellowMonday#Two4Tunesday#WildCardWednesday#ThrowbackThursday and #FeelGoodFriday.

We’ve had a blast and been so proud to have hit the milestone of our first birthday and coming up next month, should be more interviews and reviews (in particular, Patent Pending…again! But this time, in person; which guarantees to be a massive laugh!) as well as our usual posts to bring you music for each of our themed days.

We hope that you have enjoyed this month’s songs and you can find both the Spotify and YouTube playlists below!

As always, please keep sharing our posts and remember to share your song choices with us by commenting on our posts or talking to us on Twitter and Facebook.

#MellowMonday: The Paper Kites – ‘Bloom’

The Paper Kites are an indie/folk band from Melbourne, Australia, who have released a couple of EPs and albums.

In 2011, the band released their first EP, Woodland, the final song of which, was the bonus track, ‘Bloom’. The song was actually their first single release and is possibly one of their most notable, and uniquely captivating, gathering a lot of media attention.

There’s something comforting and humble about this band’s sound – I strongly recommend you check out some more of their releases.

The video is interesting too – it’s got a sort of grass-roots feel about it. It’s visually rather stunning with the tones used throughout.

Have you heard of these guys before? Have you got a different #MellowMonday song for us? Please share your thoughts and comments below or on your social media accounts and be sure to share this link too.

Have a great week!
