Jan 15th, NMF!

It’s been a quiet month so far on the music front save for the current biggest song in the world, ‘drivers licence’ coming out of the blue and connected on a level we’ve not seen in a while. This week is anything but quiet though, mostly due to Pale Waves’ little gem. Let’s get into the highlights:

Pale Waves – Easy Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

PALE WAVES / EASY

Coincidentally the moment Pale Waves leaned into their influences and embraced what is a very obvious link to classic 00’s Avril Lavigne, the quality of their music has veered upward. ‘Easy’ is so good that I’m tempted to call it career defining, I’d even go as far to say it’d be able to revive the Lavigne comeback quite easily. As 1975 as it is Lavigne, it’s just an inspired romp through gorgeously nostalgic 00s melodies that never once feels false. You’ve done it, Pale Waves. You’ve found your sound.

LEONY / FADED LOVE

The problem with samples of such ubiquitous songs is that it often seizes the song before the artist can even grasp it, leaving nothing much than nostalgia. ‘Faded Love’ is not that. Used in such a way that the melody starts to chew in before you remember exactly what it is, it makes me wonder why Dragostei Din Tei hasn’t been picked up much earlier. If Zara Larsson had this behind her she’d be worldwide in minutes.

Danny L Harle Harlecore

DANNY L HARLE / ON A MOUNTAIN

Taken from his upcoming debut of sorts Harlecore, ‘On a Mountain’ is an absolutely fearless romp through classic dance. The reserved and clean Imogen Heap-esque delivery is quite a stable for PC Music, let alone Harle, and it’s a masterclass of how a throughline even without compromising on the hardcore production. Classic dance music is fearless, and this is already a classic.

KITTEN / DO U STILL LOVE ME?

Kitten have a good ten years under their belt now, so I’ll be surprised if you’ve not bumped into their music in some capacity before. Though the line-up might have shuffled around throughout their time, they have slowly settled back into consistent and regular releases – their latest potentially their greatest yet. Inescapably HAIM but still retaining their own warm and unique style, the only thing left to hope for is that this falls into an album at some point.

Fickle Friends – IRL Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

FICKLE FRIENDS / IRL

Swallowing the mild ire at waiting so long for a measly 5 track EP, ‘IRL’ continues the evolution of Fickle Friends’ perfectly matured Reading-Festival-Paramore vibe. Unnaturally charming, ‘IRL’ decries the communicative issues of modern teenage life – lying awake waiting for the screen to flash again. Hardly a generational exclusive though, this is going to be one of the big ones on the stage – trust me.

Jan 1st, NMF!

That last December drought is behind us, we’re in the clear now and there’s new music on the horizon. We’ve still got a little while before the real good stuff comes out, but there’s still a few diamonds to be sifted this week. Let’s take a look

Gabrielle Aplin – When The Lights Go Out

GABRIELLE APLIN / WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT

Once victim to that oh so British Sophomore Slump curse, Aplin seemed at one point to the vanishing point so many Britstars find themselves caught up in. Of course, she spearheaded the front end of 2020 with the genuinely brilliant and frothy Dear Happy and she’s back to do it all over again. Wistfully simple almost to its detriment, Aplin has captured this piercing sentimentality that manages to come through because of the standard production. It’s something Katy Perry mastered years ago with PRISM, now torch bearer Aplin proves that she’s still not ready to go anywhere yet.

Black Coffee – You Need Me ft. Maxine Ashley, Sun-El Musician

BLACK COFFEE, MAXINE ASHLEY, SUN-EL MUSICIAN / YOU NEED ME

‘You Need Me’ serves as the perfect opener to a brand new year – a musical representation of the sun piercing through the dark cloud. Dance music thrives in repetition as a means of inducing trance, its masters of the craft that manage to distract and divert that repetition in ways that splinters your mind in the fog. Effortlessly warm, ‘You Need Me’ demands every single second of its 6 minute play time and never wears thin.

Olivia O'brien - Better Than Feeling Lonely

OLIVIA O’BRIEN / BETTER THAN FEELING LONELY

Dive into the forbidden vaults of many an upcoming Spotify girl and you’ll find amongst the scraps the bones of ‘Better Than Feeling Lonely’. Pointedly on trend, it feels very much like one of those Julia Michaels songwriter demo seized for themselves moments, made generic enough to shop around to multiple artists for their input to be made later on. Melodically it’s damn solid, that chorus hook will hold on tight and that middle-8 vocal is slathered in the most incredible gritty vocal ever. It’s hard to see why anyone would shop this around, or why someone wouldn’t want to pick it up.

Dotter - New Year

DOTTER / NEW YEAR

Swedish wonder Dotter aims squarely for the nail with a perfectly tailored release that will most certainly tickle any Swedish pop or Sia fan, if you’re out there. It’s a classic 00’s power mid-tempo without that trend of absolutely exploding at the chorus… instead designed instead to sweep you away smoothly.

Adrenaline by You Me At Six on MP3, WAV, FLAC, AIFF & ALAC at Juno Download

YOU ME AT SIX / ADRENALINE

As any emo child will surely agree, You Me At Six triggers serious introspective thought. Whether you’ve been there since those rainbow-fuelled debut days will have an impact on how you perceive them now, the two opposite sides of the spectrum. ‘Adrenaline’ takes them further still into Imagine Dragons territory (that gritty chanted delivery oughta be trademarked really) but it feels homely enough to them. It’s surely the best week for the release, as dry as it is.

December 11th, NMF!

If you can wrestle yourself away from the spellbinding new Taylor Swift album you’ll find there’s actually some pretty huge highlights floating around this week. From Britney Spears to Madison Beer, let’s get into it.

Taylor Swift Reveals a Holiday-Ready Beauty Look on Her New Album Cover |  Vogue

TAYLOR SWIFT / GOLD RUSH

Look, there’s no avoiding this album right now. Taylor has bodied the surprise reveal this year and, lucky for us, they’ve been both brilliant and perfect for the time. evermore might just be the better half, bringing us back in line with those traditional Swift melodies and touches. ‘gold rush’ was quite evidently touched by Antanoff and has a home in this new woodland parish she has settled in, but it’d also fit at home on any of her previous albums because behind that minimal sparseness, there’s just endless hooks and brilliantly written lyricism. It’s gorgeous.

Madison Beer – Boyshit

MADISON BEER / BOYSHIT

There almost couldn’t be a choice as abruptly different to Taylor here, Madison’s callout of worthless masculine banter relentlessly brash and purposefully aggressive. Without a doubt Madison’s biggest moment so far, ‘Boyshit’ quite literally sounds like storming through the football team with middle finger to both sides. A banger through and through.

HARD FEELINGS - Album by Julie Bergan | Spotify

JULIE BERGAN / WE’RE COMING UP

Both of the Hard Feelings EP finally get smashed together here in what results in an incredible second album for dance-pop queen Bergan. Leading the charge is completely illegible but enormous ‘We’re Coming Up’, another step in the perfect direction for an artist that already felt like taking big big strides. Quite honestly this ‘album’ opens with FIVE back-to-back 10/10 pop masterpieces. Who competes with that?

Kacey Musgraves and Mark Ronson Team Up with Troye Sivan for "Easy" Remix

TROYE SIVAN, KACEY MUSGRAVES, MARK RONSON / EASY

While it’s not immediately evident what Mark Ronson actually did here except add a few synths, ‘Easy’ was already so good that it didn’t really need to be messed with. Troye continues his path to actual gay pop icon by recruiting queer ally and queen Musgraves for this light and breezy remix. It’s a bit more robotic, a little less wistfully romantic, but Kacey sounds absolutely beautiful and anything that helps push the song a bit more is damn worth listening to.

GEORGE MAPLE / STONE

How hideously annoying that the best song on Maple’s brand new project and potentially one of her best songs ever is a measly 2 minutes long. ‘Stone’ features everything Maple does so well – towering vocals, spellbinding synths, the most haunting of bridges. There’s plenty more brilliance on the album, but ‘Stone’ is just goose bumps inducing.

Be sure to let us know what your highlights of the week were, including your favourite evermore tracks. ‘champagne problems’ is kind of the one right now.

November 20th, NMF!

Right well it’s a bloody great week this week, so let’s not wait any longer with meaningless opening drivel. Get into this.

Raye: Euphoric Sad Songs review | Music | The Guardian

RAYE, RUDIMENTAL / REGARDLESS

Avid music fans will clock the sample immediately but, you might not know it from the intro, the song is cleverly built around it as opposed to structured only around it. If there were any justice in the modern pop scene, RAYE would have a flightless career where this could bother the radio and charts, but still she feels like a bit of a hidden secret because of it. The new EP needs you to check it out, like immediately, but for now let your body sink into this smooth bop.

Heaven & Hell by Ava Max: Amazon.co.uk: Music

AVA MAX / MY HEAD & MY HEART

Ava Max is doing that thing where you drop extra songs after the album has come out and tack them on as a deluxe edition but… this might be better than everything on the standard album? The girls really cashed out on sample checks this week, didn’t they. Unlike RAYE, ‘My Head & My Heart’ is built entirely around its sample and somewhere Alice Chater is fuming for not picking it up first. It’s cheap as hell but it still sounds so damn good.

Thinking About You – Off the Record

RVBY / THINKING ABOUT YOU

Give this the minute it deserves because once that smooth glitter fades away and the bass line takes centre stage, the song comes at you like a hammer to the face. And the best thing is that it gets even better, culminating in a perfect pop standard last 30 seconds glitterbomb of excellence.

NIKKITA / POSTCARD LOVER

Slowing it right down like a school disco DJ, Nikkita comes in like a storm cloud on the horizon. Dropped into my contact box ten days ago, I haven’t been this bowled over by a vocal in years. Vocals are subjective really, so you’ll either be into it or not, but the way they’ve coupled this devastating delivery with its enormous swelling orchestra feels like being hit by an ocean wave. One of those rare ballads that feels like it could just be you and the song left in the world, you’ll really not want to miss this one.

Loved You Once - Single by WANYI | Spotify

WANYI / LOVED YOU ONCE

Also dropped into my contact box is this silky romantic dedication to a love since lost, the words at odds with the dreamy production. Bringing a huge chorus reminiscent of classic Steps into the future, WANYI swerves from her usual upbeat Carly-Rae esque pop to prove a nice strong ballad isn’t out of her remit. Particularly noteworthy are the deliciously soft vocals, so much so that it’s pretty damn easy to fall into this.

This is a bit of a stacked week, so make sure you’re checking out the dedicated playlist for the best weekly music. You really won’t want to miss the Fickle Friends track, not the Lastlings one for that matter. Trust me.

October 30th, NMF!

Halloween is almost upon us, and a distinct lack of spooky tracks for this weeks highlights of horror. That being said, there’s still a few gems, including a new amazing from the big Lipa. Get into it.

Dua Lipa and Angèle Share New Song “Fever”: Listen | Pitchfork

DUA LIPA, ANGELE / FEVER

Ms. Lipa teams up with french chanteuse Angele to create another health conscious anthem on behalf of scientists around the globe. Is it a fever, or are you making me hot under the collar? Covid or Lust? Who knows? I cannot advocate for kissing and touching as a means of testing this, you’re much better off buying a thermometer, but best not to play this while you do because it’s a sweaty banger – a dead cert to boost that body temp.

Sad Songs by Route 94 feat L Devine on MP3, WAV, FLAC, AIFF & ALAC at Juno  Download

ROUTE 94, L DEVINE / SAD SONGS

You’ll know Route 94 for the unavoidable Jess Glynne epic ‘My Love’, released way back when in 2014. With little in the way of repeat success since, Route 94 has recruited little superstar in waiting Devine for what is easily the best Not-Actually-Clean-Bandit-Clean-Bandit effort in years. Certainly not reinventing the wheel, as is to be expected, but the little flourishes of untouched Final Fantasy-lite piano touches and Devine’s genuinely fantastic delivery make this as fresh as new Spring rain.

HANA – So & So Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

HANA / SO & SO

Grimes Protégé and general fantastic-when-she-actually-releases superstarlet HANA soars back with a song that legitimately sounds like it’s been pulled from the bottom of the ocean with three inch thick steel chains. Basically Evanescence’s ‘Lithium’ on a much sparser, bleached scale with blips where the big rock guitars would be, ‘So & So’ is an interesting choice to come back with but is an exciting glimpse into the creation of, hopefully, a whole new exciting world from HANA soon to come.

empress-of-youve-got-to-feel-amber-mark-1603824388

EMPRESS OF, AMBER MARK / YOU’VE GOT TO FEEL

The real shining glory behind Empress Of this year has been her stellar production efforts – her album, ‘I’m Your Empress Of’ was positively reeling with uniquely brilliant quirks and choices. ‘You’ve Got to Feel’ is a simple protest song that manages to feel even more because of those stellar choices. With an even greater choice of feature, which actually steals the entire song, it’s just a god damn addictive song right from the offset – even before the message sinks its teeth in.

LÉON - Apart | Album Review

LEON / DIE FOR YOU

As always with Leon, make sure you’re plugged in and truly ready for this in all of its intimate glory – it deserves no less. Pure, classic, solid songwriting delivered by the voice of an angel, ‘Die For You’ comes from her sophomore album, which we already know won’t get the acclaim and recognition it actually deserves, and it just explodes with heart.

What were your highlights of the week?

23rd Oct, NMF!

LEFT BEHIND | So Below

SO BELOW / OVER

There’s a definite blueprint behind So Below works, her glacial hypno-pop a mastery at this point, yet ‘Over’ (taken from her brand new album Left Behind, manages to play both blueprint and surprise. Undoubtedly the highlight of the album, ‘Over’ brings relentless synths to Maddie North’s typical otherworld delivery but it’s the melody that takes this up a notch – the sprightly juxtaposition with the production bringing everything else to life.

Wallows - Remote Lyrics and Tracklist | Genius

WALLOWS / COASTLINES

Wallows live and die by choruses so enormous it’s hard not to envision the crowds of fans chanting along to them after one solitary listen; the Remote EP is stuffed with them and is a waltz through some of the brightest alt-pop out there at the minute, but ‘Coastlines’ is a small window into a clearly exciting future. ‘Virtual Aerobics’ remains the best thing they’ve done, but ‘Coastlines’ proves there’s a little bit more to it all than the catchiness.

Cyn's "New York"

CYN / NEW YORK

Most new artists, as above with So Below, tend to find a fairly concrete blueprint to follow as opposed to experimentation. There’s an argument to be made about whether niche success affords it or requires a simpler dedication but either way, Cyn isn’t listening. Still very much under her remit of Katy Perry-esque delicate pop songs, she already has enough variety under her releases for each new one to be a surprise. ‘New York’ is a beautifully composed ballad to the concrete city, her vocals being the feature here, that departs pretty massively from the mildly successful ‘Drinks’ before it, but we can’t help but celebrate an artist unafraid to throw the kitchen sink around a bit.

Use Me: Amazon.co.uk: Music

PVRIS, RAYE / THANK YOU

Unceremoniously tagged on to the end of the deluxe version of their massively delayed third album, ‘Thank You’ hits as a Raye song more than anything else at first listen, but it informs the commercial perspective the band have been eyeing for a while. With songs as polished as this, but still retaining that angsty PVRIS vibe, it’s clear their future is still bright.

Terror Jr - Running From The Sun -

TERROR JR / RUNNING FROM THE SUN

With a pretty extensive catalogue prior to Felix’s exit from the band, Terror Jr have felt as though they’ve been struggling to find their identity again but, much like Cyn above, what it has afforded them is the ability to experiment. Cut to ‘Running in the Sun’ – an exploratory trek through a Drum ‘N Bass-lite pop wasteland. It’s a game of two halves – the opening a standard Terror Jr affair only for the beat and spoken-word section to cut through unexpectedly, something you’d be forgiven for thinking Charli XCX had a hand in at first.

October 2nd, NMF!

Spooky season is upon us, so while we wait for Kim Petras to drop another album that I may never actually listen to… here’s this weeks highlights!

Becky Hill - Space

BECKY HILL / SPACE

Certainly not one to watch in that she’s been part of the UK music scene for what feels like an age, but not typically carrying it all herself (Nevermind the fact she does actually carry every song that she’s a part of). ‘Space’ is pure and utter brilliance. From the beautifully fresh piano line to the astronomically belted middle 8, it really deserves the world.

I'll Be There-Beka-KKBOX

BEKA / I’LL BE THERE

This takes a little while to get going admittedly but when it does, which is conveniently exactly when it needs to, it hits like a damn train. Soulfully delivered melancholic vocal with a gorgeous Jess-Glynne light and frothy melody, it’s just a lovely little surprise in the middle of all these weekly heavyweights.

Dagny – Strangers / Lovers | Album Reviews | musicOMH

DAGNY / BYE BYE BABY

Yeah, I’m not entirely sold on these weird album campaigns that are treated like two EPs, especially considering the actual strength of the material here, but you should already know by now that Dagny was going to have at least one masterful highlight on either side of the album. The track in question is ‘Bye Bye Baby’ – a glittering goodbye reminiscent of Robyn but with that cutting sharpness we’ve come to know from Dagny so far.

The xx's Romy Madley Croft Drops Debut Solo Single "Lifetime": Listen -  Stereogum

ROMY / LIFETIME

There really is no greater feeling than finding something this good from an artist right out the bat. Obviously a sort of precipice not knowing whether they’ll continue or flail, but for that moment you can bask in having found a little slice of something super fresh and exciting. ‘Lifetime’ is a sort of beastly hybrid of Charli XCX/Cher/Trance/Dance that’s a bit hard to place which makes it EVEN MORE EXCITING!

Julia Michaels Shares New Song "Lie Like This": Listen - Stereogum

DAGNY / LIE LIKE THIS

Do you know what is a bit of a brilliant album? Fleshtone by Kelis. Do you know what is a bit of a banger single? Don’t Start Now by Dua Lipa. ‘Lie Like This’ is the latter filtered right through the former and it’s surprisingly fresh from Michaels, who has been at this point behind a dozen or more hits with her own name attached somewhere in the credits. Apparently leading to her first actual debut album, we’ll take more like this please!

Make sure to follow the dedicated playlist for weekly highlights!

25th September, NMF!

Terror Jr - Would It Make You Feel Better? - Reviews - Album of The Year

TERROR JR / WOULD IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?

A lovely return to form for our Terrible delight here, but with something more of a Brit-pop Charli XCX/Daft Punk influence. Well damn, it works, arguably more than anything they’ve dropped in a while. Part of me craves that truly explosive Daft Punk vocoder ending that it sort of suggests, but the swift cut away just kind of forces you to hit replay, doesn’t it?

Baby Queen Announces Debut EP + Shares “Pretty Girl Lie”

BABY QUEEN / PRETTY GIRL LIE

Just a really good, really strong pop song here. Sky Ferreira filtered through Sigrid, it has those MUNA-lite reverb soaked riffs and a relentless beat that is just impossible to resist. This is the exact kind of song you save for a meteoric debut, except it’s Baby Queen’s fourth now, but it kind of sounds like the perfect Baby Queen debut so we’re pretending it is.

JADA / ON ME

What you might not know is that Danish popstar Jada dropped one of 2019’s best albums last year, called I Cry A Lot, which brought together understated dance with a gorgeous R&B/pop flair. It sounded truly fresh then, and Jada is just building on that perfectly. ‘On Me’ basks in 90’s pop glory, with great big stabs and a soaring girlband melody, and sets Jada as one to watch for a second year running. In fact, it’s hard not to imagine a certain Ms. Grande looking to this for her future sound.

Taska Black & Emily Vaughn – Easier Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

TASKA BLACK, EMILY VAUGHN / EASIER

Admittedly I very almost skipped this during this weeks highlight search and I would have been way worse off for doing so. There’s quite a few clearly dance inspired songs out this week, which threatens to dilute the pool a little, but god there’s a really beautiful song inside of this. Not only does Emily Vaughn also have a fantastic voice, she’s perfectly suited to these organic piano led mid-tempo mixes. I have a feeling this is going to sneak it’s way up the Best of 2020 playlist as the year carries on.

Where Do We Go - Single by Sval | Spotify

SVAL / WHERE DO WE GO

Slower songs usually get a bad deal when it comes to highlights simply because they, by design, usually need a little more time to really hit, so when you find one that already kind of hits after just a few plays, you know you’re onto a good one. Sval has been quietly releasing some damn good tracks already, so I knew to pay attention, but if this monster of a chorus doesn’t force your eye, I don’t know what will. Beautifully harmonised vocals and a sledgehammer chorus, what more do you want?

That’s it for this weeks highlights, but as always it doesn’t end here. Make sure to check out the full playlist for ALL of this New Music Friday’s very best:

18th September, NMF!

Sam Smith – Diamonds Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

SAM SMITH / DIAMONDS

As though they could ascertain our fears that the label had demanded more MOR balladry despite the bangers we have heard so far, Smith returns with a catastrophic impact in the form of ‘Diamonds’ – a sickly smooth continuation of that classic Sam Smith formula meets the dancefloor. It’s as effortlessly brilliant as Dua Lipa’s recent output.

Ava Max Shows Promise on Debut Album 'Heaven & Hell': Review

AVA MAX / BORN TO THE NIGHT

Evil album artwork choice aside, Ava’s new album is out and it deserves at least one listen. You’ll find in it some pretty sweet and easy pop, which has its place in the world as much as anything else. ‘Born to the Night’ takes The Weeknd’s 80s formula and spins Ava’s lopsided wig all over it and, as regressive as it might be, it’s a blast.

SOFI TUKKER, NOVAK, TAX.X / EMERGENCY

Sofi Tukker’s name on any piece of work almost guarantees a keyboard-mashing-blessed-Madonna mix designed for a dark bedroom confined rave. ‘Emergency’ might be the only time you hear Simon Says incorporated into any song, let alone a dance song, but Sofi Tukker are so fucking good at this that it just… works.

Liverpool's future superstar Pixey unleashes her monster new single "Just  Move" | Best Fit

PIXEY / JUST MOVE

GOD it’s so exciting when new artists come out with something that sounds like they’ve been around for years. ‘Just Move’ has the charisma of a rippling sunset on a field full of sunflowers; the guitar licks, fluctuating melody, the drum beat… it’s all infectious. Hard to see how Pixey doesn’t make a huge surge out of this.

I don't wanna talk about me - Stereo Jane

STEREOJANE / I DON’T WANNA TALK ABOUT ME (R3HAB REMIX)

A rare occurrence of remix improving the original song without actually doing much here. In fact, it only takes a few listens for your brain to be tricked into thinking this was always how the song sounded. I mean it’s essentially a bootleg remix, but that twangy electronic bass just takes this chorus somewhere much bigger.

HERE ARE THIS WEEKS HIGHLIGHTS, GET INTO THEM:

11th September, NMF!

SWIM FOR IT / GET WHAT YOU WANT

As shameless of me as it is, do you know I make music too? All created in my little bedroom, check it out if you’re a fan of breezy male-driven pop.

BEABADOOBEE / WORTH IT

Sometimes songs just sound like the close of Summer, carrying with them the imagery of a thousand indie movies. Beabadoobee has mastered the art of emoting through sound, ‘Worth It’ being her freshest song yet. It just sounds like an open car ride through soft sunlight.

JULIE BERGAN / ONE TOUCH

Some big pop names in the credits for this, which means it has to be good, and luckily for us it is. Bergan sort of operates in a different time-space to everyone else, where her music lives in some timeless-nostalgic flux, and there’s even more of that here. Instantly familiar but fresh enough to stay exciting, it’s more sugar sweet bliss from one of the most consistent artists out there right now.

MP3: Kiiara & DeathbyRony - Numb (feat. PVRIS) - K2Vibes

KIIARA, DEATHBYROMY, PVRIS / NUMB

Kiiara is another consistent one, out there banging her drum to her own beat regardless of the circumstances. She’s always operated on this line between mainstream and underground production, flitting just enough into the former to break through, and there’s no doubt this sounds like her biggest push yet – notably because of the feature. It’s surprisingly understated though, almost in line with Ellie Goulding’s recent album’s darker moments.

FLETCHER's Anticipated EP 'The S(ex) Tapes' Drops Early | uDiscover

FLETCHER / SHH… DON’T SAY IT

Fletcher is lining herself up as one to watch in the next few years, trust me. ‘Shh… Don’t Say It’ is basically a brilliant Selena Gomez song taken directly from Stars Dance. Delivered casually enough to earworm rather than strike, it’s that monster bassline which does the real first impression work, but it’s the melody and delivery that’ll keep it sticking.

David Guetta and Sia Join Forces on New Song 'Let's Love' - Our Culture

DAVID GUETTA, SIA / LET’S LOVE

Admittedly this was a bit of a write off on first immediate listen, and it’s only with several more plays it’s unfolded to me. Part of that is probably because the chorus is the weakest part but the bridge is so good that it more than makes up for it. A complete different vibe for what you’d expect of this two but it’s those ‘This too shall PASS!’ moments that scream Sia through and through.

What were your highlights this week?
