Hearts & Colors are a YouTube duo who have a large online following.

This song,Fireflies, is a cover of Owl City‘s biggest hit and they’ve done it justice and made it even more beautiful…if that’s possible?! Their harmonies hit you with “the feels”! It’s superb!

The duo consists of Philip Tillström & Nicolai Kjellberg and they’ve also covered songs by Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber. Keep an eye out for these guys…I think they’ve got something special!

Said The Sky is the moniker of Colorado-born instrumentalist and producer, Trevor Christensen.

The ethos of this guy is to create euphoric sounds with captivating bass lines and ascending melodies which lift you.

This current release, ‘Nostalgia’ features the sultry vocals of Missio and is undoubtedly, a well-written electronica track with its calming synths and soft guitar sounds (similar to the sound of David Guetta’s ‘Titanium‘). You should definitely check out this track!

A ‘Said The Sky Remix’ of Owl City’s Fireflies is due to be posted online, on 01/12/15, so keep your ears peeled…it’s set to be good!

#Two4Tunesday: Owl City – ‘Verge’ featuring Aloe Blacc & LunchMoney Lewis – ‘Bills

This week’s #Two4Tunesday consists of some monster tunes from Owl City and LunchMoney Lewis!


Owl City Banner

Although this is our second post about Owl City (previously we wrote about Fireflies), this time, we’re bringing you a brand new track from Adam Young and this one features guest vocals from Aloe Blacc.

The song is taken from Young‘s forthcoming, 5th album, Mobile Orchestra, which is due out on 10th July 2015.

It is a very catchy, electro-pop tune and sees two big stars unite for an awesome, summer-time-vibe track. I can’t get enough of this song right now!


‘Verge’ can be downloaded off iTunes, from his forthcoming album, ‘Mobile Orchestra’, now – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/verge-feat.-aloe-blacc/id992475634?i=992476649

LunchMoney Lewis Banner

LunchMoney Lewis is such a unique artist; he started his career notoriety, whilst working with Dr. Luke as a producer. He then went on to write a series of hits, such as Jessie J’s ‘Burnin’ Up’ and Fifth Harmony’s ‘Bo$$’. He then went on to lend his vocals to Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint, album track, ‘Trini Dem Girls’.

Since then, he released his first solo track, ‘Bills’, which has gained great recognition and is storming up the UK charts…and it’s use of trumpets makes it all the more fantastic!


‘Bills’ can be downloaded from iTunes now – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/bills/id966617416?i=966617419

That’s the end of the week’s #Two4Tunesday! Please feel free to share our post on your social media accounts and tell us what your two favourite tracks are right now. We’d really appreciate it!

#Playlist: April 2015

Hey-hey campers!

This month’s compilation is a corker! As with last month, we’re bringing you both a YouTube and Spotify playlist of all of this month’s featured songs!

Muzik Speaks has now been live for 2 whole months and it’s growing fast! We’ve got a brand new writer, Max Paillard, who so far, has brought you some amazing Wild-Card Wednesday tunes and I’m personally looking forward to seeing what he brings next!

This month has brought you some fantastic tracks from the likes of; Lucy Spraggan, Macklemore, Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas as well as songs from independent bands, like TEAM, New City Kings and The Barr Brothers and finally we’ve thrown-back your Thursdays with Bomfunk MCs, Fragma, Owl City and of course, the late Lil’ Chris.

We hope you enjoy these songs from April 2015, all over again, in one place – once again, sorry some of the tracks are missing from the Spotify playlist – some haven’t been released yet and some have been removed from Spotify by the artist/band.

Note: You can view the whole YouTube playlist by using the dropdown menu at the top corner of the video, or skip a song using the ‘next’ button.

#ThrowbackThursday: Owl City – ‘Fireflies’

Owl City Banner

Wow…who remembers this song then?!

I remember exactly where and how I found out about this song – it was on a little game called Tap Tap Revenge 3…remember that? What ever happened to that game?!

Tap Tap Revenge 3 Icon

Owl City - Fireflies - Tap Tap Revenge 3

Anyway, I downloaded this song, Fireflies, by an unknown artist to me, Owl City, whilst playing TTR3 in my room. I must’ve played this particular level of the game at least 10 times in a row that day – I couldn’t get enough of it! I looked online everywhere to find where to download it, and couldn’t find it anywhere. It turns out, it wouldn’t be released in the UK until about 6 months later.

Anyway, I remember telling everyone that this song was going to be huge…then whatdyaknow…6 months later, the songs released in the UK and goes straight to number 1!

It’s since been covered by many people and been featured in a variety of adverts and other forms of media. Well done Owl City – you made a very good ditty!

Is there anyone who doesn’t know this song…surely not! Did anyone else play this on TTR3, like I did? And what’s throwing back your Thursday this week? Please share this link with your friends and leave a comment with your song for the week, below.
