Week Commencing 3rd March 2014
Single of the Week: OUT 3rd MAR
Known for her emotional Jar of Hearts debut in 2010 Christina Perri is no stranger to a weepy ballad. Tissue at the ready Human is another tear-jerker about the vulnerable state you feel when you are let down by unconditional love. A soft slow start; the first 30 seconds comes across a little dreary but when Perri’s emotion builds and peaks with the power lyric ‘I’m only Human’ this song really is effortless beauty.
This track will feature on her upcoming album Head or Heart released 11th March.
Album of the Week: OUT 3rd MAR
Following the success of Happy and 2013’s Pharrell feat with the”robots” of Daft Lucky he hits us with his inevitable comeback album GIRL. Clinching collaborations with Miley & Justin Timberlake this album could quiet easily become a record breaking album release for this in-demand producer/artist. Finger snapping beats and positive vibes this 11 track collection will fill you with infectious summer love feeling.
Guaranteed, this album will have you skipping all the way to Finsbury Park for this year’s Wireless Festival where you can catch him perform alongside Ella Eyre, Iggy Azalea and Kanye West.
Video of the Week: OUT NOW
When FKA Twigs releases a video it’s a visual mastermind and her latest collaboration with LA R&B duo Inc is certainly not one to be overlooked. Transfixed by her haunting vocal the monochrome touch is a brilliant contrast from her earlier video, Water Me. Both unique and completely iconic London’s Tahliah Barnett aka FKA Twigs is one of the most spellbinding acts out there since Bjork.
Directed by Twigs and Nick Walker this desert based video ties beautifully with the soulful nature of this collaboration. Although this was an unexpected pairing the results speak for themselves!
