Nine New-ish Nuggets: 27/01/14

27 January 2014

Ready for another batch of new-ish songs to feast your ears upon? Good, you've come to the right place...

Kylie Minogue - Into The Blue

It may have leaked last week, but the high quality version of Kylie's 'comeback-kind-of' single 'Into The Blue,' is now online, in the form of a pretty good lyric video. It's the perfect slice of  no nonsense synthpop Kylie's become so accustomed with over the past few years, with a very catchy hook, reminiscent of Delta Goodrem's 'Sitting On Top Of The World,' which is far from a bad thing. Aussies unite etc.




Little Mix - Word Up

There's no denying that this is a pretty random choice of a cover, especially for Sport Relief, but then again who would expect anything less from the Little Mix girls, who have made the 90s throwback to Cameo's 'Word Up,' plonked some harmonies in it, and brought it into 2014. Whilst the original is very hard to top, they've sure done it justice.



Zedd (Ft. Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant) - Find You

A big thanks to my friend Rob for suggesting this one - I freaking loved his last two releases 'Clarity,' and 'Stay The Night,' and I was not disappointed by latest cut 'Find You.' All I have to say is - tune.



JELF - Burnt Book

If you're looking for a bit of dramatic alternative music, then look no further than JELF's debut single 'Burnt Book.' The intriguing lyrics are teamed cleverly with a powerful building beat that wouldn't sound completely out of place on a Florence and the Machine or Imagine Dragons album.



Taylor Swift - All Too Well

Now, this isn't a new song at all - it's from her 2012 album 'Red,' but Taylor Swift performed the (for me, at least) forgotten album track at the Grammies last night, and she smashed it. It's given me a new love for the track; a signature Swift power ballad that builds to a very powerful chorus. Can we also take a moment to acknowledge how hot she looks here too - jeeze.



Avicii - Addicted To You

One of it's biggest draw-ins is the fact that at times it sounds like what an EDM Adele album would sound like, thanks to featured singer Audra Mae. It's a bit too short, but it's still a cracking tune.



Bright Light Bright Light & Ana Matronic - West End Girls

I'm kicking the camp level up another notch with the inclusion of the amazing Bright Light Bright Light and Scissor Sisters star Ana Matronic's cover of 'West End Girls.' They've given the Pet Shop Boys track a 21st century kick, 30 years after it's original release.



Example - Kids Again

Example is back with another EDM club-friendly anthem, which teams an interesting verse, with a catchy chorus and amazing drop - perfect



We Are Nuts! - Baller

I'm not usually a fan of tracks with no lyrics, but the production on 'Baller' is so simple yet intriguing and well, great, I can put my old fashioned views aside for a few minutes for this easy listen.



Golden Oldie: Natasha Bedingfield - I Wanna Have Your Babies

I don't know why, I really don't, but this has been stuck in my head for the past few weeks - I can't seem to get the creepy-in-parts video, hilariously honest lyrics and annoyingly catchy tune out of my head, so I'm going to share my (joyous) pain with you all. Also note the Nadine Coyle feature in the middle... wooo, popstar friends.
