Griff’s really done it this time. Heartbreak really shouldn’t sound this spectacular but, well, here we are. What a song. The Black Hole artwork features a hole with a black border, ie the opposite of a black hole, but on the upside it does feature Griff ON HORSEBACK. Look at this:
- ELIO releases a really brilliant EP today and Charger is a real winner, despite being about mobile phones (a topic rapidly rising up the lyrical banned list).
- Rose Gray, a rave-pop practitioner of considerable talent, releases her Dancing, Drinking, Talking, Thinking EP today and every track’s a winner. Which is best, do you think, out of dancing, drinking, talking and thinking? It would be interesting to get Rose Gray’s thoughts on this matter.
- Years & Years have covered It’s A Sin. Possible something to do with Olly being in a TV show of the same name which may or may not be starting on Channel 4 tonight; hard to say really as there’s been very little publicity around it. The cover is ACOUSTIC but PERMITTED.
- 220 Kid‘s done the shanty.
- PRETTYMUCH‘s Stars is included in this week’s playlist mainly for the almost heroic line “girl you’re an angel from every angle”: a lyric that surely made perfect sense written down but required some severe vocal gymnastics to deliver ‘in song’. They really went there didn’t they? And to think they say pop music can’t push boundaries.
