New Music Round Up – 09/05/17

Welcome back to another week of CelebMix’s New Music Round Up!

This week’s New Music Friday was dominated by One Direction stars Niall Horan and Harry Styles, who released new tracks ‘Slow Hands’ and ‘Sweet Creature’ respectively. Other awesome releases came from the likes of Halsey, Emily Warren, Jonas Blue featuring William Singe, and New Hope Club.

However, as always, there’s a string of other new music releases which might not be on your radar yet. We’ve rounded up some of the must-listen songs from this week.

Galantis – ‘Hunter’

Grammy-nominated duo Galantis are back with a new track called ‘Hunter’. The track, which features an uncredited female vocal, is sure to be the next big summer anthem. Galantis, made up of Swedish producers and DJs Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw, will be hoping to build on their incredible success so far, including their biggest hit, the platinum-selling ‘No Money’. You’ll be able to catch the duo at various UK festivals including V festival, Creamfields and Radio 1’s Big Weekend.

‘Hunter’ is available here.

Mallory Knox – Unwired

Mallory Knox released their new EP Unwired on Friday, which also includes their new single ‘California’. The five-track EP comprises of stunning acoustic versions of fan favorite tracks from their third album Wired which was released earlier this year. The EP shows how they can easily transform their huge acoustic anthems into acoustic jams.

Born Stranger – ‘Generation’ featuring Louise Setara

‘Generation’ is the latest track from electronic pop duo Born Stranger, made up of Maddox-Jones and Raife Hacking. The pair have teamed up with powerful vocalist Louise Setara for the track, and we predict big things for this anthemic offering. Co-produced and mixed by Yoad Nevo (Sia, Pet Shop Boys, Goldfrapp), ‘Generation’ takes a view of the world’s political landscape and encourages self-belief within the younger generation.

Julian Fulton – ‘Rosie’s Disposition’

NJ-based singer-songwriter Julian Fulton is back with another new offering, ‘Rosie’s Disposition’. It’s the latest track to be taken from his forthcoming EP Battered Receptions, which is due for release on May 12. Speaking about the track, Julian said: “‘Rosie’s Disposition’ is about feeling caged, trying to convince yourself you’re happy, until finally running off in pursuit of something substantially more fulfilling.”

Dan Owen – ‘Moonlight’

Dan Owen has released his new offering ‘Moonlight’, a reworked version of the 2016 track which appears on his Open Hands and Enemies EP. The mesmerising love ballad shows off Dan’s incredible talent when it comes to songwriting. His haunting vocal will also leave you stunned. ‘Moonlight’ is Dan’s first release since signing to Atlantic Records, and has already been featured in Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist in eight European countries.

‘Moonlight’ is available here.

Tom Prior – ‘Sundays’

‘Sundays’ is the new single from North London singer-songwriter Tom Prior. The infectious, genre bending track follows on from his The Sunday Scene EP which was released last year. We’re loving the euphoric rock fusion, and ‘Sundays’ is one of our favourite offerings from Tom so far. We’re certain he’ll continue his ascent to the top with this song.

‘Sundays’ is available here.

Club Drive – ‘Voyager’

Club Drive are favourites of ours here at CelebMix, so we’re pleased to announce that they’re back with another huge track, ‘Voyager’. As usual, the band have delivered a super catchy offering, with an infectious hook which is perfect for the upcoming summer months. ‘Voyager’ follows on from their previous track ‘Spare Time’, which was added to BBC Radio 1’s playlist as an Introducing track. Club Drive are currently supporting Canadian pop rock band Marianas Trench on their UK tour.

‘Voyager’ is available to stream here.

Lucy & La Mer – ‘Honey Put Your Weapons Down’

‘Honey Put Your Weapons Down’ is the latest single from Lucy & La Mer, the musical endeavour of LA based singer, songwriter and activist Lucy LaForge. Produced by Grammy Award-winning Jared Lee Gosselin, the track is an indie-folk/pop mesh, featuring honest lyrics and Lucy’s signature breathy vocals.

Florian Picasso & Raiden – ‘Hanabi’

‘Hanabi’ is a collaboration between Florian Picasso and Raiden, released on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings. Speaking about the dance track collaboration, Raiden said: “We both noticed that our ideas interlocked together, so after a several minutes we were already working on it at full throttle. However, the track now sounds pretty different compared to the first demo but we are really happy with the final result!”

‘Hanabi’ is available here.

James Hersey – Pages

Friday saw the release of James Hersey’s debut EP Pages. The five-track EP includes the original ‘Coming Over’, which launched Hersey to stardom after numerous heavyweights including Filous, Kygo and Dillon Francis wanted to remix it. Produced by Will Hicks and mixed by Stephen Fitszmaurice, the EP also includes ‘Miss You’, ‘Everyone’s Talking’, ‘Tomorrow’, and ‘Pages’.

Pages is available here.

Marian Hill – ‘Down’ (Franky Rizardo Remix)

Marian Hill’s ‘Down’ has been given a new lease of life by Franky Rizardo. You may be familiar with the song as it’s the sound of Apple’s new iPhone 7 Air Pods campaign. You can catch Marian Hill in the UK later this year when they play London’s XOYO on October 9.

‘Down’ (Franky Rizardo Remix) is available here.

Måns Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede – ‘Love Love Peace Peace’

During last year’s Eurovision Song Contest final, we were treated to a phenomenal interval performance from Måns Zelmerlöw and Petra Mede. Despite being a much loved song and one of the night’s highlights, ‘Love Love Peace Peace’ was unavailable to download until now. Written by Fredrik Kempe, Edward af Sillén and Daniel Rehn, the song is now available across all digital retailers, much to the delight of Eurovision fans everywhere. We’re going to be playing this on repeat in the run up to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest!

‘Love Love Peace Peace’ is available now.
