Lucy Rose's latest album 'Something's Changing' is one of my favourite releases ever. That's a bold statement I know, but I stand by it. It's a flawless collection of songs and it's so easy to listen to in any situation or mood. I've seen it performed live in a cinema in Brighton, and it brought the character of each track to life even more than I thought previously possible. This is one of my favourite songs from the release, alongside 'Love Song' and 'Moirai'.
2. Getting By - Charlie Wren
This song is the newest of the ones I'm sharing with you today - and it's yet to be officially released... This track will be on Charlie Wren's forthcoming EP (which she has just announced is going to be released on 24th November). I was lucky enough to sit in the studio to hear this song progress and become what it's now going to sound like on the EP. Enjoy this stripped back acoustic version of the song and tune back on the 24th November to hear the final version of the song...
3. Anyone Else - PVRIS
PVRIS are back with a new album and it's just as good as (if not better than) their first. I've had the release on repeat in my car and I'm constantly humming along. 'Anyone Else' was the first video I saw from the ones released, and it definitely caught my attention, it's a brilliantly catchy song as well as being incredibly cinematic and artistic. Enjoy!
4. Younger Now - Miley Cyrus
Miley broke back into music brilliantly with 'Malibu', 'Younger Now' is the just as good follow up track. I've always been a big fan of Miley Cyrus' music, from the country melodies to her pop anthems, to now, a perfect combination of both successes. Listening to her latest album of the same name (Younger Now), feels like you're really getting to know the artist behind the music. The lyrics are incredibly raw and honest, whilst the music is still catchy, upbeat and of course, still gets stuck in your head! (The music video is also pure brilliance...)
5. Homesick - Dua Lipa
Dua Lipa's debut album was the biggest surprise release of the year for me (so far - and I doubt that will change). More often than not, I don't enjoy every single song on an album, when two or more of the tracks have appeared in the Top 10. However, this album pleasantly surprised me, I've fallen in love with every single song on this album, in particular 'Homesick'. It's a beautiful song featuring vocals from Chris Martin, to me, it showcases Dua Lipa's musicality - her lyrics, penmanship, vocals, music etc. etc. etc. it's a good 'un and to me it's the hidden gem from the album...
