New year, new music. Finally sitting back at our desks and cracking open the Pandora’s box that is our email inbox, we’re back! In a week that saw the sort-of return of Arctic Monkeys, the Brit nominations unveiled and Sigrid being crowned the winner of BBC’s Sound Of 2018 we’ve once again peered into the never-ending river of new music to drag out four of the finest tracks of the week.
INHEAVEN // Sweet Dreams Baby
Having spent the tail end of 2017 celebrating the release of their self-titled debut, INHEAVEN have hit the ground running with their newest track ‘Sweet Dreams Baby’. Trading in their trademark stadium-sized riffs for a dreamier sound, the London four-piece have shown us they can brilliantly manage both sides of the rock spectrum. Gearing up for a UK tour which kicks off later this month, there’s no doubt we’ll be hearing more from INHEAVEN soon.
Adam French // My Addiction
Having captured our ears with his Weightless EP last year, Adam French has kicked off 2018 with his latest single ‘My Addiction’. Described by French as “a song about temptation and withdrawal”, ‘My Addiction’ is a chilling example of French’s songwriting. With a sold-out London show set for February 1st, and a headline show in Manchester soon after, French is hitting the ground running this year.
Dua Lipa // IDGAF
Saying Dua Lipa has had a good week is a bit of an understatement, unveiled as the Brit Awards’ frontrunner with five nominations, Lipa dropped her latest single ‘IDGAF’. The latest offcut from her self-titled debut once again sees Lipa battle breakup. Taking the perspective of the inner monologue with herself, talking about the video Lipa said: “This video is about your stronger and weaker side fighting with each other only to realise that self love is what will help you overcome any negativity that comes your way.”
Ready to embark on a sold-out arena tour this April, Dua Lipa is set to once again be one of the year’s biggest popstars, and rightfully so.
