#ThrowbackThursday: Goldfinger – ‘Get Up’


   

facebook-like   Instagram


I can’t believe it’s already been a decade since Goldfinger released their sixth album, Hello Destiny… (SideOneDummy Records, 2008) but it has.

The first single to be taken from the album was in fact ‘One More Time’, which although a great track, I couldn’t resist sharing ‘Get Up’ in all of its pop punk/ska punk glory! In fact, on iTunes, it is actually the most popular track on the record!

It actually wasn’t released as a single, so no music video exists but it’s chock full of political messages that really pack a punch! It’s the sort of song you can really visualise a politically-driven video for though; the kind that would feature news clips, etc.!

Great song, great message, incredible band!

What are your thoughts of this 2008 pop punk/ska punk belter? Are you still a fan of the track, 10 years on? Do you have a #ThrowbackThursday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via social media.

2016 really is the year of Craig David! First he made a triumphant return with the single When The Bassline Drops, which he soon followed up with One More Time. Since then, he has teamed up with the hit producer, Sigala (known for singles Easy Love, Sweet Lovin’ and Give Me Your Love) to release a monsterously catchy hit, ‘Ain’t Giving Up.

The track is taken from Craig David‘s recently released album Following My Intiuition, which has been a massive hit!

This song serves for the perfect #FeelGoodFriday track, due to it’s upbeat nature and intense catchyness! If you haven’t already heard it, where have you been?! Check out the awesome video below!

#ThrowbackThursday: Daft Punk – ‘One More Time’

Daft Punk are a French duo consisting of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and 15 years ago, in 2001, the electronic pair (who are possibly robotic and from another planet) released the hit song, ‘One More Time’.

The song, which was taken from their second album Discovery, took the world by storm and reached Number 2 in the UK singles chart. The song is heavily compressed and auto-tuned and that’s what gives it the signature sound. It is funky, French house and honestly is a timeless tune!

The music video for the song is interesting as it is animated and taken from the pair’s 2003 animated film, Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem.

Do you remember this song from 15 years ago? Are you new to this song? What do you think? What would you choose for #ThrowbackThursday? Drop us your choices in a comment below or tell us via our social media accounts.

Craig David – ‘One More Time’

2015 saw Craig David‘s triumphant return to music with his hit ‘When The Bassline Drops’ alongside Big Narstie but now he’s back with a completely solo track, ‘One More Time’.

The song is heavily garage influenced and could well bring about a revival of the genre to the mainstream, which is currently saturated with EDM and House music.

He is expected to drop his first new album since 2010’s Signed, Sealed, Delivered with the working title, Following My Intuition.

I’m expecting big things from Craig David this year!


‘One More Time’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/one-more-time-single/id1110886942



Prides – ‘Rome’

Scottish synthpop band, Prides are back with their first new music since 2015’s debut album The Way Back Up.

This new single, ‘Rome’, sees the band continue in their same vein of indie/synthpop, but with a slightly more edgy, heavier sound. This also looks like it will be the beginning of a new album release for the trio.

I am very excited to hear more from this band – their debut album resounded brilliantly with me and based on this new song, they could well go on to top that! Bring it on guys!


‘Rome’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/rome/id1114040600?i=1114040620
