Binky: think Carly Rae Jepsen meets Maren Morris

We appreciate brand new tracks from Binky, Roo Panes, Joan As Police Woman, Riley Smith, Eleri Angharad and Molly Sarlé


BINKY
DRUG IN MY HEAD
Binky

Mixing loud pop production with the storytelling lyrics of the country world, Binky shares an infectious, toe-tapping track. Think Carly Rae Jepsen meets Maren Morris and you’ll get an idea to what this song is about. It has a toe-tapping beat and a feel-good summer vibe that will have you turning the volume to the max. Binky is an artist on the rise and this single has the potential to become a real crossover hit. LK


JOAN AS POLICE WOMAN
KISS
Play It Again Sam

Already a live favourite, this cover of the Prince classic is raw, sultry and impossible to resist. Rather than ramping things up, Joan fully strips the track of its bombast and somehow manages to make it even more sensual in the process. DH


RILEY SMITH
EARTHQUAKE
Riley Smith

Famed actor and musician Riley Smith, best known for his role on the CMT hit drama Nashville, is ready to take centre-stage with the release of his standout new single. Lyrically it focuses on the sexual tension that builds after being away from someone you love for too long, while sonically it has a raw rock vibe running through its country roots, and Smith’s rich vocal tone shines.

ROO PANES
THINKING OF JAPAN
CRC Records

A photo of Kyoto stirs the emotions on this subtly powerful track which builds in conjunction with Roo Panes’ own yearning. Anyone who has ever experienced a nostalgia for somewhere they’ve not yet been to will appreciate the sentiment. It’s also a chance for Panes to demonstrate his full vocal range. DH


ELERI ANGHARAD
EARTHBOUND (ACOUSTIC)
Train Track Records

Welsh country talent Eleri is ready to take the genre by storm with the release of her debut album Earthbound and this delightful stripped-back version of the title track. Fans of Clare Bowen will fall in love with her soft, lilting vocal that has a divine mix of light and shade and Earthbound’s sweeping production will leave listeners longing for more. LK


MOLLY SARLÉ
THIS CLOSE
Partisan Records

There’s a haunting quality to this song which encapsulates the otherworldly feeling of new love. Hues soften as emotions heighten, images and sounds shift in and out of consciousness as you question whether these sentiments are real and a feeling of bliss colours the mood. DH


Words: Laura Klonowski, Duncan Haskell
