Kyle Falconer’s Celtic vocals and the bluesy, 1970s soft rock-influenced guitar solos vie to be the hero on this beautifully breezy track. Exemplary songwriting skills are at work here and material of this quality is likely to attract the attention of a whole new fan base for the Dundee group.
Scouting For Girls – Summertime In The City
The Londoners’ new single, while still very literal, has more of an urban edge to coincide with its title. More grown-up than the likes of pop smashes She’s So Lovely and Heartbeat, sing-a-long moments and cheeky, flirtatious lyrics give this track a youthful, sunny vibe.
Fun. – Some Nights
New York trio Fun. garnered a lot of attention with their unlikely hit We Are Young – featuring vocals from Janelle Monae – which topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. The latest release from their Some Nights album is overly defiant, bombastic and as heavy-going as the latter – and will no doubt ride the wave of their recent success.
