    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.

    But I'm Scared by Echo Session


    Old style

    A robust example of retro power pop from a band that I had thought long gone, “But I’m Scared” isn’t likely to scare the charts into submission but those who remember the days when a song was more than a sequenced sample will no doubt find something to love here.

    Bad Man by The Kut


    Girl power

    The rock machine rolls on and “Bad Man” is as good an example of what you get when you mix volume with a bad attitude as you are likely to find this week. I wouldn’t mess with these girls.

    Trillionaire by Rakunk


    Heatseeker

    Full on seems the way that Chicago band Rakunk roll and their song “Trillionaire” holds a steady course towards the stadium with the band’s electro rock influences and Jonathan McIntire’s tireless voice providing the fuel that will get them there.

    Black & Blue by Maria Kelly


    Quirky

    Maria Kelly has enough inherent quirkiness to make a song like “Black & Blue” interesting yet she can still sound like the kind of songstress that BBC Radio 6 might describe as the next big thing. Easy to like and pleasing to the ear – that’s what she is.

    Sleep Easy by Sam Evian


    Reverential

    Clearly in love the groovy past, Sam Evian nonetheless turns “Sleep Easy” into a song that people of taste might choose to remember when they are making up their party playlists for those long summer nights.

    The Love Of Our Lovers by Ashley Jana


    Forthright

    Ashley Jana’s heart is clearly in the right place and her song “The Love of Our Lovers” isn’t short of emotion with her precise voice neatly complementing the sequenced laconicism of the backing track. Plastic is the new black (in the right hands).

    Never Enough by Grip Tight


    Retro love

    Synth pop will never die and the genre influences are prevalent in Grip Tight’s “Never Enough” with the robotic beat, analogue synth sounds and the posturing vocals easily evoking memories of the mascara days of the eighties.
