They’ve created a mash-up of two songs, and recorded a cover version of it. Splicing Michael Jackson’s classic ‘Dirty Diana’ with Calvin Harris & Rihanna’s (maybe […]

EXES – Like You

“‘Like You’ is a very real song about a very real boy I fell quickly and unrealistically for,” says EXES’ Allie McDonald. “Although the subject matter is a bit sad, the bouncy playfulness of the production adds an aspect of teenage naivety.

Brika – You

It’s been a while since the last time we heard from Brika (our bad to be honest).

Lydia Jane – Washed Up

Lydia Jane’s ‘Washed Up’ opens with a rhythmic chordal piano, it sets the foundation, an ever present throughout the track. It gets the support of the occasional flicker of strings but the strength of this one lies in Jane’s ability to craft a story. You want to know what she’s going to say next, you […]
