On The Stereo #16
We introduce some sublime new music from Runaway June, The Coral, God Complex, Kane Brown, The Mutineers and Black Futures
FAST AS YOU
This huge country-pop song is taken off Runaway June’s brilliant debut self-titled EP. The trio is one of the most exciting country acts around at the moment and this pop-infused track is a real standout. It has shades of Shania Twain and the vocal harmonies are sublime.
REACHING OUT FOR A FRIEND
The melody here is pure Coral but the rhythm section is synth-driven and muscular. Throw in some glorious backing vocals and you have one of the most enjoyable indie tracks of the moment from the enduringly talented Wirral masters.
God Complex’s latest single really captures the true horror of modern humanity. It also holds an energy that brings out a need to headbang relentlessly and leaves you wanting more. Passion like this is rare to find.
RCA Records Nashville
Country music golden boy Kane Brown returns with his latest release Homesick. This is his most lyrically mature track to date and it really showcases his songwriting skills. While the production allows his country vocal tones to shine through. Homesick is country at its finest.
COULDN’T GET OVER YOU
An eerie nostalgia washes over the latest offering from husband-wife duo The Mutineers, with Merry Young’s slightly jaded delivery contemplating the pros and cons of a co-dependant relationship. Both sonically and lyrically, this is Americana with added kick.
Music For Nations
If you’re looking for a song that’s a perfect blend of relaxing, uplifting, heavy and upbeat, this is it! It’s chaotic, anarchistic and sounds like a waterfall of colour, covering both the light and dark. The overall meaning is about the wonders of life. What could be better?
