#MellowMonday: Mullally – ‘Sweet Coffee’ featuring Bassette


   

facebook-like   Instagram


21-year-old soul singer, Mullally, has just unleashed his new single ‘Sweet Coffee’ on the world, featuring London artist Bassette and damn it’s good!

The smooth, soulful vibes are the perfect way to wake up to a week ahead – it truly is like the audible interpretation of your first cup of coffee in the morning. Somehow the pair have created the perfect blend of contemporary R&B/Pop inspirations with the powerful vocals and soft melodies of old-school jazz and soul; it’s truly euphoric.

Having already supported the likes of Anne-Marie, Jess Glynne, RAYE and Clean Bandit, played festivals including Glastonbury, Lovebox and Reading/Leeds and winning Best Solo Male at the Unsigned Music Awards, there’s no doubt that this guy is going to become a big name over the coming months.

No music video has emerged online yet but as soon as one does, we will keep you posted.

What are your thoughts of this soulful singer and songwriter? Do you love this song as much as us? Have you got your own #MellowMonday track to share with us? Please leave your thoughts or own song suggestions in a comment or tell us about it via our social media.

#Two4Tunesday: Clean Bandit – ‘Symphony’ featuring Zara Larsson & Linkin Park – ‘Battle Symphony’

Clean Bandit – ‘Symphony’ featuring Zara Larsson

I’ve loved Clean Bandit ever since their monster single, ‘Rather Be’, which dominated the charts all over the world. Since then, they’ve had a string of other successful hits, including ‘Extraordinary’‘Tears’ and the equally successful, ‘Rockabye’. I genuinely feel that this latest single could well parallel the success of ‘Rather Be’ and ‘Rockabye’ with it’s beautiful orchestral sounds, outstanding vocals from the superbly talented Zara Larsson and the coupling of an emotionally-charged music video.

Clean Bandit are sure to release a follow-up to their debut album soon, judging by their releasing of new music recently.

The video has just been released and is tragically beautiful – it follows the love of a young, black, gay couple – I won’t say any more about the tragedy of it, but it’s definitely worth a watch below!


‘Symphony’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/symphony-feat-zara-larsson/id1210094024?i=1210094302



Linkin Park – ‘Battle Symphony’

Linkin Park are finally back but sadly it would seem that some people are not feeling the new sound! If you ask me, I think the band are showing an impressive diversity and ability to adapt themselves, not just regurgitate the same thing!

They recently released the stunning single, ‘Heavy’, featuring pop singer Kiiara, which is the first time the band have featured a female vocalist on an original song, for a studio album. Now they’re back with another contemporary track from their upcoming album One More Light‘Battle Symphony’. If these newest songs are anything to go by, I am incredibly excited about the new album – it should be set to be hugely different but utterly captivating. Bring it on!

No official video has been released yet but we’ll keep you updated on this.


‘Battle Symphony’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/battle-symphony/id1204427627?i=1204427655

#SummerSongs 2015 – The Playlist

This weekend, we present you with our first ever #SummerSongs playlist for 2015! This playlist has been lovingly crafted by the current Muzik Speaks writers, each contributing some summery songs we love!

If you already own the songs and want the custom artwork, please feel free to copy/download the artwork below:

SummerSongs2015

Matt’s Song Selections

There are so many songs on this playlist that I just love! They’re either current songs which right now are giving me that summer feeling, or are a few years old but hold memories for me.

Some of the songs I’ve chosen include;

  • Jason Derulo – ‘Try Me’ featuring Jennifer Lopez and Matoma – this song’s got a distinct dancehall sound and captured me instantly. The song is on Derulo’s new album, Everything Is 4 and although it’s an album track, it’s the perfect opening track for our summer playlist!
  • Sam Smith – ‘Lay Me Down (Tiësto Remix)’ – this remix is incredible! I’m a big fan of remixes anyway, but Tiësto’s euphoric, spacious sound on this track, has transformed an already beautiful song, into a electronica dream!
  • Walk The Moon – ‘Avalanche’ – an album track from their latest release, Talking Is Hard, this song’s guitar sounds make it an upbeat, melodic song. It reminds me of something out of a sunny scene in Made In Chelsea or on the beach.
  • One Direction – ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ – OK, so I feel I should justify this selection! One Direction, no matter what you think of them, have written some damn good songs; this being one of them! This song has a clear 80s quality to it, it sort of reminds me (not sure why!) of Climie Fisher‘s ‘Love Changes’.
  • Tyler James – ‘Why Do I Do?’ – I used to love this song when it was released back in 2004 and the jazz-pop qualities of this song are unique and captivating. It’s damn catchy too!
  • Fall Out Boy – ‘Favorite Record’ – I love Fall Out Boy and they have gone from strength to strength over the years. I love the production on this track and its use of certain effects on the vocals and guitars make it intriguing to listen to. It’s lyrics are also fairly reminiscent and that for me is a quality of summer; making memories to reminisce in years to come.
  • Michael Jackson – Love Never Felt So Good featuring Justin Timberlake – this song has previously been a #FeelGoodFriday track of mine and it’s not hard to tell why! It’s a perfectly sculpted pop song with the uplifting sounds of Michael Jackson’s vocals, married with modern Timbaland production and support of Justin Timberlake’s voice.
  • Razorlight – ‘Rip It Up’ – released back in 2004, this has many memories of countless parties I went to whilst at my secondary school and just makes me think of times I spent with friends. It’s energetic tempo makes for a hard-hitting belter.
  • Vance Joy – ‘Riptide’ – this song is a personal favourite of mine; I was once shown this track by someone I admire for overcoming their fear of performing and its California surfing sound is the perfect calming close to our playlist.

My other selections include songs by; Ariana GrandeTwo Door Cinema Club, TrainDJ Fresh featuring Rita OraSigmaFrankmusikClean Bandit and Shift K3Y.

That’s it from me! I hope you like the songs I’ve contributed to the playlist and that they might help shape some memories for you too. Please share this playlist with your friends. Matt x


Max’s Song Selections

I’m really excited to share this playlist with you guys, it’s packed full of great tunes listen to this summer. Our selection is quite varied in styles and genres as we hope to capture all the highs and lows of your summer through the playlist.

The song I added to this playlist are:

  • Dan Croll – ‘From Nowhere’ – this song is just far too cheery to not have in your summer playlist! The upbeat riffs and instruments make this song a good listen.
  • Only Real – ‘When This Begins’ – to be honest I’m in love with this whole album. But this tune fits best with our Summer vibes, it’s probably one you’ll put on, sit back and relax to. If you like ‘Only Real’ be sure to check his feature in my #WildCardWednesday post.
  • Toddla T – ‘Take It Back’ – although this song isn’t too recent, I think some clean Drum n Bass is essential for a good playlist. ‘Take It Back’ has some beautiful vocals over this great backing track.
  • La Roux – ‘Uptight Downtown’ – This song grabbed me by it’s instrumentals, it’s on the verge of a pretty interesting ‘funk’ track. Also I personally love La Roux’s voice regardless, it’s so clean and natural sounding. Her songs should defiantly feature in your summer this year!
  • SBTRKT – ‘IMO’ – this song is a little different to the others. It’s a very mellow tune, with an overall softness to the instrumental. It’s a beautiful song nonetheless, some really nice production went into this!

These are all of the songs I’ve decided to choose for the summer; enjoy!


We’ve gathered only the best songs which are sure to make your summer special. We want this summer to be one you’ll remember for the best reasons! Check out the full playlist on Spotify. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

#FeelGoodFriday: Clean Bandit – ‘Stronger’

Clean Bandit Banner

Clean Bandit are unstoppable at the moment! The quartet, consisting of Jack Patterson, Luke Patterson, Grace Chatto and Neil Amin-Smith, have released a string of Top 5 hits, since the release of their massive 2014 anthem, ‘Rather Be’ featuring Jess Glynne.

This particular track features the vocals of former Glee star, Alex Newell and Sean Bass (the brother of Sharna Bass – vocalist on the band’s hit, ‘Extraordinary’).

It’s easy to see why this release reached Number 4 in the charts, with it’s feel-good summery vibe! Enjoy 🙂
