Welcome back to our weekly New Music Round Up!
On Friday, we were treated to world class releases from DNCE and Nicki Minaj, Noah Cyrus, John Mayer, and Tinie Tempah. However, there were also a number of songs and videos which may have slipped under your radar. With it also being the Easter weekend, we’re going to guess that some of you were far too busy digesting chocolate eggs to digest the ton of new music that’s been released.
Whether that’s the case or not, never fear, CelebMix is here once again to fill up your day with some brand new tunes you might have missed. Without further ado, here’s some of our favourite song and video releases from the past week.
Steps – ‘You Make Me Whole’
Ahead of the release of their new album, Tears On The Dancefloor, Steps have released another teaser. ‘You Make Me Whole’ is available as an instant grat track for those who have pre-ordered the album. The dancefloor track is a hit with us, and makes us excited for even more new music from Steps on April 21!
Avante Black – ‘Make A Mess’
Avante Black is back with a new single called ‘Make A Mess’. The compelling alt-pop track “tells it straight about the moment when you’?re breaking up with someone and realize it’s not fixable”. Avante Black is the project led by Ottilia Zimmerman Kjulsten, a 22-year-old Swedish native living in London, alongside fellow Swede Emil, Italian Gabs and British drummer Dean.

The Island Club – ‘Paper Kiss’
The five piece band from Brighton recently dropped the video for their indie-pop track ‘Paper Kiss’. According to the band, the video shows “the corruption of money and how it can change people”, which is represented by the band performing to an audience of desk-bound workers whose hunger for money stops them from even noticing that they are there.
CULAN – ‘Easy To Love You’
Half English/Jamaican dancehall singer/songwriter and producer Culan has released his debut track ‘Easy To Love You’. The artist recently gained notoriety from his refix of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’, which has since amassed over seven million listens. Now, it’s time for Culan to shine in his own right, with his slick blend of electronic-RnB.
Joseph of Mercury – ‘Find You Inside’
Toronto-based artist Joseph of Mercury is back with a new track called ‘Find You Inside’. Premiered by Popdust, the vintage sounding track takes inspiration from artists such as David Bowie, Roy Orbison, Leonard Cohen and Morrissey.

Battered Receptions, which is due for release on May 12. ‘Howl’ forms part of his genre-bending vision and proves to be a roaring track with the simple message of, ‘Don’t give up’. Julian said, “‘Howl’ is a call to arms to both the beaten and the apathetic to make themselves heard, no matter how insurmountable the corruption or opposition appears, or how pointless it seems.”
