    Social Politics by Yassassin


    Looking up

    While there are still a few, no doubt deliberately applied, rough edges to “Social Politics”, London all girl band Yassassin demonstrate that there is still life in smoothing out the post punk ethos and applying it to the kind of pop song that could only have been born in a garage.

    Weekend by SuperGlu


    Fast times

    Superglu would seem to be the kind of band that like to kick it up old style with their song “Weekend” featuring the kind of roughhouse guitars and aim at the wall vocals that inevitably make for the soundtrack to a good night out

    Overbored by Babygirl


    Dry

    Balancing robotically precise percussion with the casual indifference of Kirsten Clark’s voice works out well for Canadian band Babygirl with “Overbored” successfully evoking the calm after the emotional storm and, whilst not an uplifting song, it does nonetheless have a certain hypnotic quality.

    Bang Bang by Emma Essinger


    Intellectual

    Emma Essinger strays away from the conventional with her song “Bang Bang” having enough oddball elements to lift it out of the Scandinavian electropop groove and into the hearts of those who appreciate something a bit different.

    Younger Mind by Sykes


    Sparky

    “Younger Mind” might well sound like the product of a bygone age – in this case eighties electro pop – yet Sykes with the mix of those analogue synth sounds, rockstar guitar and Julia Sykes’ almost wistful voice make the song sound as fresh as today’s bread.

    Voodoo by Beth Macari


    Stylish

    Whilst “Voodoo” isn’t the kind of song to trouble your memory, you can’t deny the style and presence that Beth Macari brings to the party and she duly makes more of this song than many could. I’m sure the smart money will be watching out for whatever she does next.

    Break of Dawn by Saints Patience


    Mainstream

    Although nearly drowning in a sea of musical reverence, “Break of Dawn” is nonetheless the kind of robust song that might well be seen as stadium friendly but let us not forget that it is Mudibu’s soulful vocals that actually gets the song on to the safety of the shore

    Attack of The Glam Soul Cheerleaders by Ette


    Summer song

    “Attack of the Glam Soul Cheerleaders” ticks all the boxes for a summer pop song with its sub three minutes duration, a singalong chorus and gleefully innocent feel. The production throws in anything and everything but who cares when Ette have a song that is actually likely to make you smile.
