Gabrielle Aplin is an English singer-songwriter who amassed a following after uploading a series of acoustic music covers to YouTube, before signing to Parlophone in February 2012.

Her style falls anywhere from folk and indie rock to synthpop, with her latest single, ‘When The Lights Go Out’, being a mellow, synth-driven anthem.

This particular song was written shortly after the release of her latest album, Dear Happy. Aplin says, “I wanted to make a song that felt like a hug that you can also dance to and I’m considering it the song that closes the Dear Happy book.”

It does just that – it manages to be a somewhat upbeat record that you can have a boogie too, whilst also being something mellow, easy listening and like the closing of the Dear Happy chapter in her career. It’s a brilliant amalgamation of happiness and calmness and is mellow enough to be a great #MellowMonday start to the week.

I can’t get enough of this track right now!

KStewart – ‘Be Without You’

KStewart has a voice to be reckoned with; her vocals can be saintly sweet or devilishly dynamic and that’s a great thing! Her musical style has some 90s vibes to it, but she’s throwing in house and garage tones to shake things up a bit!

This latest song is helping to cement just how fantastic she is and makes me even more excited to hear an album from her.

The video is a collaboration between her and New Look – I think it’s a fantastic direction for both parties – fashion promoting music and music promoting fashion – it’s a match made in heaven! You’ll also notice MNEK making an appearance in the video too. It just looks like a whole load of fun, but where KStewart is concerned, I would expect nothing less!

Show your support for this song and please download it – great tune!

Sigala – ‘Say You Do’ featuring Imani & DJ Fresh

I’ve featured Sigala on Muzik Speaks, twice already, but I just can’t get enough of his summery dance vibes!

With Easy Loveand Sweet Lovin’already grabbing people’s attention, there is no doubt in my mind that ‘Say You Do’ with get a great reception on release; not only has he got Imani on the vocals, adding that sweet sound into the mix, but none other than DJ Fresh has dived in to help on the production. It’s one MONSTER of a song; very reminiscent, vocally, of ‘Hot Right Now’ (featured on our Summer Songs 2015 Playlist), the smash hit for DJ Fresh.

The video is typically Caribbean which goes perfectly with the vibe of the song!

I just love this tune – I really hope Sigala will release an album of hits, just like this; it’s upbeat, fun and smile-inducing!


‘Say You Do’ is not released until 18/03/16, but you can pre-order it on iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/say-you-do-feat.-imani-dj/id1077265863
