[030420] New Music Friday Picks



Frank Ocean- Dear April (Side A- Acoustic)

The simplicity behind the track allows Ocean's artistry to shine through. The combination of stripped back guitar, slides and twangs complement his harmonious elements that so often fill his projects. Reminiscent of his 'Blonde' album with a more moody undertone.


Rod Wave- Ribbon in the Sky

Contemporary sound with conscious lyrics. The melodious rap, allows him to move between singing vocals and Young Thug'esque qualities.


Tiffany Day- Autopilot

Stripped back with a trap rhythm, allows her creamy vocals to flow easily.


Jelani Aryeh- Stella Brown

Youthful musings, lo fidelity ambient elements mix seamlessly with the indie bounce.


Rina Sawayama- Chosen Family

Atmospheric, with certain pop elements. The lyricism stands out, recognising the collective and standing as an advocate.


Black Atlass- Do For Love

The vocals flow effortlessly, ebbing with the trap rhythm but bringing a much more sensitive quality.


Kygo, Sasha Sloan- I'll Wait

The blend of dance and folk, work in such a way that Sloan's vocals create an easy listening track. One that you can't help but tap your foot to.


Tory Lanez- Who Needs Love

Bouncy and current. One of the most versatile artists, working his vocal changes and flow with ease. Lyricism can be a little questionable.
