Louis the Child – Love is Alive

Billboard.com describes “Love is Alive” as a soft and soothing with rolling bass and hefty though sparring drums song. I couldn’t agree more! This song just takes you back to those sunny road trips  with your friends. Elohim joined the whole process writing and collaborating as well. One of my friends introduced her music to me last week. It’s always awesome when acts collaborate with potential future acts. Most end up with awesome hits, like music babies.

Love is Alive based on their soundcloud would be featured as one of the Ultra Music songs. A follow-up to their It’s Strange ft K Flay which also made it to the Ultra 2016 album.

Noah Kahan – Young Blood

Came across this track when I was browsing through my music blogs. I actually almost missed it the first time. Then that same night, Young the Giant shared the track on facebook saying their pal has released this awesome new one. Turns out they’re both under the same label.

The way the artist is able to share his personal struggles and at the same time is able to reach out to us. How the track and the beat progresses is also awesome! His 20 right now, feeling lost, unsure if he made the right decision during the process of his writing on Young Blood.

I believe he’s an Artist to Watch this year as after listening to one track, we’re left wanting an album. There is potential here, there is talent. After doing a quick research, I found through musicinjectionwordpress that this artist was signed to Lorde’s producer. No wonder!

3 Songs To Check Out This Week – MØ, Parson James and Seeb

The future hit artists
1. MØ breaking out from “Lean On” shows that she can do it on her own with yet another dance anthem.

2. Parson James new single after his breakout with Kygo “Stole the Show” and his EP “Temple” sounds radio-friendly without losing the singer-songwriter vibes.

3. Seeb got big when he took that Mike Posner song and turned it into a hit. I remember hearing I took a pill in ibiza when it got released. I instantly connected with it but wondered if it could ever make it to the charts. Jacob Banks on the other hand has been featured on Sigma’s album bringing his soul vibes into electronic music. A great collab to check out!

Sam Smith – Writing’s on the Wall

Here’s the new track for the upcoming James Bond 007 film “Spectre”. Rumors were already going around earlier this year on who was going to follow Adele’s Skyfall. Sam Smith topped that list. He however kept denying. A few weeks ago, it was finally revealed that it was him indeed. “This has been a top secret mission of my own” he tweeted. Ellie Goulding was also rumored to be taking the part, maybe next time?

Writing’s on the Wall is an overall alright track. It still features the James Bond sound but in a bit modern way. Sam Smith himself co-wrote the song plus friends “Disclosure” helped out during the production. People online have mixed reviews of the song. Time will tell if it will hit the Billboard charts and follow the success of Skyfall.
