As they continue to prep for the September release of their sophmore album We The Generation, not to mention a sting of headline festival dates this summer, Rudimental yesterday unveiled the second track to be lifted from their forthcoming LP. Entitled 'Rumour Mills' the track sees the foursome revert to a more down-tempo, House infuluenced style of production than the upbeat 'Never Let You Go' and also sees the band recruit the vocals talents of Will Heard and the incredible Anne-Maire, who has been their main touring vocal support for the last 3 years. Expect to be hearing this one a lot over the coming summer months, cetified summer anthem.
Brooklyn born rapper Joey Badass this week confirmed "Paper Trail$' as the third single to be lifted from his critically acclaimed debut album B4.DA$$, launching the DJ Premiered produced track officially on Tuesday with a brand new video. As we've now come to expect Bada$$ kills, with dope visuals to an even doper track. I fully expect to see this flying in the Hip-Hop charts in the weeks to come.
Following on from their enchanting debut single ‘Get Me By’, electronic singer/producer duo Boy Scout this week mark their return with yet more mesmerising sounds from their lo-fi studio set-up. Entitled 'Bitter Blue', what is only the second track to surface from the mysterious London duo, sees the pair further cement comaparions between the likes of James Blake and Aquilo, this time showcasing a more driven and synth heavy sound, yet one that stills allows the vocal space to breathe. Boy Scout’s producer half also tells how ‘Bitter Blue’ was the spark that set their musical journey alight. He explains, “We were both talking about how easy it is to get caught in this cyclical, adolescent and unfulfilling lifestyle. The track was kind-of a homage to our combined regrets of the last few years.”
