Niall Horan – ‘Slow Hands’

Niall Horan is back with, ‘Slow Hands’, the follow-up to his 2016 debut solo single, This Town and it is awesome!

The song has a completely different sound to his debut single and his vocals on this track doesn’t sound like him in places, but this tune is catchy AF!

I love the broken vocal edits on the verses and the chorus just grips you and makes you want to belt it out loud. The guy is a true talent and this single is proof of that.

No video has been released yet, but I’m sure it won’t be long.


‘Slow Hands’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/slow-hands/id1230904573?i=1230904755



HAIM – ‘Want You Back

HAIM are back and gearing up to release their second album, Something To Tell You, later this year with the single ‘Want You Back’.

It’s brave to name a song after one of the biggest singles of all time but this track does well to make it’s own mark. It is a song which outlines one’s inner battle between the head and the heart with lyrics that beg for forgiveness from an ex, hoping to win them back into the empty space left in their heart.

It’s a cracking follow-up and sets good expectations for the upcoming album.

No video has emerged for this track yet either but we’ll keep you posted.


‘Want You Back’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/want-you-back/id1229700722?i=1229700978

#ThrowbackThursday: Michael Jackson – ‘Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough’

This #ThrowbackThursday is a rather special one; Michael Jackson was, in my opinion, the most incredibly talented singer and performer and I think his work should be admired for how fantastic it was and still is.

Not only that, but his first, adult, solo album, ‘Off The Wall, is due for re-release on 26/02/16, accompanied with the brand new Spike Lee documentary, Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off The Wall – which I am very lucky to be going to see the premier of, today, at the BAFTA headquarters in London! The film is said to chronicle Michael Jackson‘s rise through the creation of the ‘Off The Wall’ album, and is the second Jackson-orientated documentary that Lee has made.

‘Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough’ was released back in 1979 and was written solely by Jackson himself. It was co-produced by Jackson, alongside producer-extraordinaire, Quincy Jones, who went on to collaborate with Jackson, many more times throughout his career.

This song gained Michael Jackson his first solo Grammy Award and American Music Award – both massive achievements! It’s just a down-right, awesome, funk-filled, disco-dancing anthem; I love it!

Are you an MJ fan? What song of his would you pick for a #ThrowbackThursday? Share you thoughts in a comment below or on social media, along with this link.

#FeelGoodFriday: Sigala – ‘Easy Love’

Sigala Banner

What an epic, feel-good song this is! It’s got a summery sound and an amazing sample…recognise it?!

You probably got it straight away, but the song features samples from The Jackson 5’s massive song, ‘ABC’ combining 70s Motown funk with tropical house; it’s the sound of the summer!

The video is really cool too, featuring a bunch of children doing dance-offs, with the main duo performing some rather insanely synchronised moves!

What do you think of this massive song?! Are you a fan? Have you already heard this? Please leave a comment with your #FeelGoodFriday track for the week, below.
