Rosie Lowe - Water Came Down

[ Record Of The Week ]

It feels the wait since the impeccable Right Thing, which was unquestionably one of the standout songs in the whole of 2013, has been unbearably long but fear not, for the drought is unquestionably over. 

Rosie Lowe has recently been working towards her debut album with Paul Epworth's Wolf Tone label, which is itself already home to fellow forward thinking new comers Glass Animals. Clearly a promising development for the singer enthusiastically tipped for greatness in 2014, along with Banks, Tove Lo, Wet, SZA, Rhodes, Royal Blood, MØ and George Ezra by some musical prophet over here

Before this begins to resemble any more of a review, go listen to the shimmering, classy and effortless pop of Water Came Down and watch the lovely video if you wish.

If The Stone Roses were from London and listened to Rodigan? What a song.

Miles+ - Bright

A refreshingly unpolished bedroom recording, Bright kind of reminds me of Silversun Pickups, The Kooks and Bombay Bicycle Club in parts. From Sydney, 15 year old Miles Elkington = Miles+.
