Brighton Pride is fast approaching and to celebrate, we have created our first ever, Brighton Pride Weekender playlist dedicated to one of the city’s biggest annual events to promote equality and diversity with the aim to eliminate discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
This playlist has been lovingly crafted to include a variety of tracks, by the artists performing at Brighton Pride 2018, as well as some other great anthems!
If you already own the songs and want the custom artwork, please feel free to copy/download it below:
We hope you enjoy this playlist as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it! Please share the link to this post, or the playlist itself and give it a cheeky follow on Spotify too – https://open.spotify.com/user/muzik5peaks/playlist/5nXqTcFL05VwLPppVaNIE6?si=fV9Vk8vDQgCVQUgAUzI9ng.

Troye Sivan – ‘Bloom’
Troye Sivan is South African-born, Australian singer, songwriter, actor and YouTuber who has been gathering a huge online following over the past few years.
Openly gay, Sivan describes ‘Bloom’ as a, ‘subversively queer song,’ that sees him take on the role of a passive guy losing his virginity. Although it’s full of innuendo, it is a really fun, subtle track that has an incredibly catchy chorus (but not in an obvious sense). It’s summery and deserves to be played loud…I expect his pride appearances this year will be huge!
No music video (as such) has been released, however a 3D animated lyric video, created by Jason Ebeyer, was released, featuring an animated version of Sivan floating through a fantasy land.
‘Bloom’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/bloom-single/1375827482
Jess Glynne – ‘I’ll Be There’
Jess Glynne is finally back with the first single since her 2015 debut, I Cry When I Laugh, indicating that her second album is on its way!
‘I’ll Be There’ is an uplifting track with very soulful and gospel-like qualities to it whilst maintaining a contemporary pop sound. It is a track that transcends as it progresses; this song makes it easy to see why she’s won a Grammy! I hope this is another Number 1 hit for her, like 2015’s debut, ‘Hold My Hand’.
The video itself doesn’t appear to have much of a narrative however the locations she performs in are pretty interesting and vibrant colours certainly play an important part throughout. Well worth a watch.
‘I’ll Be There’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/ill-be-there/1376766204?i=1376767301

Matoma – ‘False Alarm’ featuring Becky Hill
We’ve featured Matoma before with his previous singles, ‘Paradise‘ and ‘Running Out‘, and he’s back with another epic tune.
Becky Hill‘s vocals on this track are immense (and reminiscent of Ella Eyre) and just husky, crackly and powerful in all the right ways.
Matoma‘s production is incredible, as usual, and contains the perfect mixture of pop and tropical house.
This is surely THE song of the summer!

Troye Sivan – ‘WILD’ featuring Alessia Cara
Troye Sivan is an Australian singer who was born in Africa. He has also been known for his acting and YouTube videos, as well as his music.
Although this song was released back in September 2015, I’ve only just picked it up now and it’s awesome! The vocals are incredible, the lyrics are great and the track is well-produced!
Also, Alessia Cara is blowing up in the UK right now and so she is a great addition to the track too!
‘WILD’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/wild-ep/id1028351582
