303 are the rising stars of UK R&B, steadily making their mark with their fresh take on an old-school sound.

 

The group’s 3 members – Io, Maddie, and Chloe – radiate a unique energy, togetherness and ability to harmonize, leaving no doubt that they were meant to sing together.

 

Following on from their captivating debut single, ‘Whisper’, the trio return with their second soulful release. ’Someone Else’, a stripped-back guitar and vocal production, is about not being in the right mindset to have a healthy relationship. It delicately captures the difficult and emotional feeling of having to let someone go because you want the best for them.

“Wondering” continues M.O’s air for tropical, lilting hooks and melody blended with the kind of bassline that seems designed to light up parties.

The songwriting is notable.

 

More:

KAMILLE is getting into the festive spirit early this year, dropping her brand-new Christmas song ‘Santa x4’, featuring up and coming R&B sensations Next Town Down.

 

About Santa x4, she says: “I’m in love with Christmas and everything that comes with it, I annoy everyone around me, I cook for everyone, I’d put up my tree from September if I could, I’m that extra! So, this year I decided I wanted to make a Christmas song, inspired by Boyz II Men, Mariah, Jodeci, some of my favourite RnB artists of all time. So, it was only right that I asked Next Town Down to duet with me on Santa x4, they’re so incredible and really brought that beautiful RnB feel I was dreaming of. I love the way we’re singing about being heartbroken at Christmas, which is something so many of us feel.”

 

Kamille heard Next Town Down recently being played on BBC Radio 1Xtra, and immediately wanted them to jump on her new track.

 

About their collaboration with Kamille, Next Town Down say: “It was so dope to collab with Kamille, who’s one of our favourite artists. Great Christmas music crosses borders, so to us, it’s exciting to work with someone killing it in the UK and overseas. Kamille’s voice, songwriting, and artistry made for a really special vibe that we are excited for the fans to hear.”

 

Kamille last month shared her huge single ‘Don’t Answer’ featuring Wiley, the first single to be released from the British singer and songwriting powerhouse’s forthcoming EP.

 

The single and following EP is set for release on her own label Pure Cut Records via BMG. ‘Don’t Answer’ follows KAMILLE’s popular releases with WSTRN, Wretch 32 & Dr Vades over the summer, as well as the massive heartbreak anthem ‘Easy Loving You’ with SG Lewis.

 

KAMILLE’s upcoming EP sees her team up with plenty of other brilliant collaborators to be revealed over the coming weeks.

 

KAMILLE’s time in the music business has seen her become one of Britain’s most successful female hit writers and producers, a multi-award-winner who has worked with scores of chart-topping acts. In the past year, KAMILLE has achieved two back-to-back Brit award-nominated UK #1 hits, while her songs have clocked up over 4 billion combined streams and hundreds of hours of radio airplay all over the world.

 

KAMILLE has also scored three top ten singles this year and achieved her 10th UK Platinum single; Mabel’s ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ as well as penning her radio smash ‘Mad Love’. She has written for forthcoming projects for the likes of Stormzy and Dua Lipa, as well as collaborating with the likes of Wretch 32, SG Lewis and WSTRN on their recent singles.

Mabel drops another smashing hit entitled ‘Loneliest Time of Year.’

 

 

The song is memorable, and the songwriting is exceptional.

 

The music video is well-produced, and the colour grading is remarkable.

 

She sings from the heart.

 

The harmony between the vocals and instrumentation is intact.

 

More!

An effortless storyteller with a pure and unfiltered singing talent and songwriting ability, Mabel McVey has an instinctive gift of melody far beyond her twenty-three years.

 

Indeed, Mabel has made quite the impression since bursting on to the scene in September 2015 with her release ‘Know Me Better.’ Quietly released onto Mabel’s personal SoundCloud, the single didn’t remain a secret for long, putting the wheels in motion for Mabel to become a fresh and exciting name amongst a brand-new generation of r ‘n’ b chanteuses.

 

In the three since, Mabel’s growth (musically, emotionally, visually) has been extraordinary.

 

Her formative material led to the surprise breakthrough of ‘Finders Keepers’ in 2017, which went platinum, spent 5 weeks in the top 10, and saw Mabel nominated for her first BRIT Award (Critics’ Choice).

 

She has gone from playing nervous, intimate shows to touring with Harry Styles, selling out her own dates around the world (including London’s Brixton Academy) and has clocked up increasingly-surreal experiences en route (which includes playing Wembley Stadium in a Burberry catsuit and rainbow flag). Over two million single sales in the UK and over half a billion streams followed.

 

Mabel has emerged as one of the UK’s most positive, candid lyrical voices, with songs that frequently explore everything from identity, the challenges of modern relationships, and working out who you are and what you want.

Kelsea delights with her compelling vocals.

 

The song is melodic.

 

The excellent lighting adds to the quality of the video.

 

Her performance is impressive while the video is interesting to watch.

 

More:

A country-pop singer/songwriter out of Knoxville, Tennessee, Kelsea Ballerini started writing songs when she was 13 years old, learned guitar a year later, and moved to Nashville at 15 to pursue her dream of being a professional singer and songwriter.

 

Four years later, when she was 19, Ballerini signed a publishing deal with Black River Publishing and a recording deal with Black River Entertainment later that same year.

 

A debut single, “Love Me Like You Mean It,” appeared from the label in 2014; the song slowly became a big hit, reaching number five on the Billboard country singles charts and number one on its country airplay charts.

 

A digital EP, simply titled Kelsea Ballerini, was released in November 2014, and as word about Ballerini spread, she was named one of 2014’s Next Women of Country by CMT and appeared on the Grand Ol’ Opry for the first time on February 13, 2015.

 

In May 2015, Black River released Ballerini’s first full-length album, The First Time; it debuted at four on Billboard’s U.S. country charts and 31 on the Billboard Top 200, eventually going gold.

 

In June 2017, Ballerini released “Legends,” the first single from her sophomore LP, Unapologetically, which appeared in November.

 

The following year saw Ballerini issue a deluxe version of the album that added four new tracks, including the single “Fun & Games.”

 

In 2019, she guested on Thomas Rhett’s single “Center Point Road.”

Lyrics:

Yeah, I like my friends

Yeah, I like tequila

I like puttin’ on a dress

And dancin’ with my feelings

 

I could be the life of any party

I can play along with anybody

But sorry

 

I don’t wanna go to the club

I don’t wanna watch everybody around me try to hook up

And say stuff they don’t mean

And get drunk and get cheap

So what’s wrong with me

Cause I don’t wanna go to the club

 

I already know it ain’t worth it in the morning

And yeah I like the high

I just don’t like payin’ for it

 

I’m stressin’ over conversations

But now that’s anxiety that I’m erasin’

Cause lately

 

I don’t wanna go to the club

I don’t wanna watch everybody around me try to hook up

And say stuff they don’t mean

And get drunk and get cheap

So what’s wrong with me

Cause I don’t wanna go to the club

 

I don’t wanna wake up on the floor of a bathroom

Lookin’ at the stamps on my hand like a tattoo

Say I’m never doin’ that again if I don’t have to

And I don’t have to go to the club

 

So I don’t wanna go to the club

 

I don’t wanna go to the club

I don’t wanna watch everybody around me try to hook up

And say stuff they don’t mean

And get drunk and get cheap

So what’s wrong with me

Cause I don’t wanna go to the club

 

I don’t wanna wake up on the floor of a bathroom

Lookin’ at the stamps on my hand like a tattoo

Say I’m never doin’ that again if I don’t have to

And I don’t have to go to the club

The Big Moon unveils a striking music video for the song entitled ‘Take A Piece.’

 

Songwriting is remarkable while the song is memorable.

 

The compelling vocals are in harmony with the stirring instrumentation.

 

Overall performance is outstanding.

 

More!

London punk-pop four-piece the Big Moon formed in 2014 following Juliette Jackson’s decision that a career in waitressing wasn’t a life choice she was prepared to commit to.

 

After putting the word out, Jackson met three other like-minded women through mutual friends, and the Big Moon was born.

 

With Jackson leading, the rest of the band featured Soph Nathan on guitar and vocals, Celia Archer on bass and vocals, and Fern Ford on drums. The quartet went into a rehearsal room in London’s Stoke Newington and began work on Jackson’s material.

 

Taking their lead from the grunge and Brit-pop girl groups of the ’90s, the Big Moon self-produced “Sucker” and the aptly titled “Eureka Moment” and released the tracks via the fledgling Hard Up label in 2015. The latter was an assured slice of grungy punk-pop recalling the abrasive yet melodically sweet output of groups like the Breeders and Elastica, and it brought them to the attention of the London music scene.

 

The band built on the exposure with a co-headlining tour in October 2015 alongside fellow London acts InHeaven and Vant. Following that tour, they quickly found themselves supporting well-established performers like Ezra Furman and the Vaccines.

 

The publicity they gained through these high-profile support slots found the band signed to Fiction, a subsidiary of Universal Music, in March and releasing their debut EP, The Road.

 

After signing to Fiction, the trio released the single “Cupid,” complete with a D.I.Y.-style video, and “Silent Movie Suzie,” both of which built on the same kind of ’90s alt rock-influenced, pop-inflected music as Haim and Hinds.

 

In August 2016, the group released a version of Madonna’s “Beautiful Stranger,” a cover that they regularly played live.

 

They began recording their debut album and played on singer/songwriter Marika Hackman’s second record I’m Not Your Man.

 

In April 2017, they released their first long-player, Love in the 4th Dimension.

The Raconteurs are back with a marvelous video for the song entitled “Somedays (I Don’t Feel Like Trying).”

 

The video is pleasing while the delivery of words is noteworthy.

 

Diverse instruments bring the best out of the song and the songwriting is outstanding.

 

More!

Launched just as the White Stripes were entering their twilight years, The Raconteurs initially appeared to be a busman’s holiday for Jack White. Broken Boy Soldiers, the group’s 2006 debut, swiftly revealed the quartet as their own distinct entity, fuelled by the complementary power-pop skills of White and fellow frontman Brendan Benson and anchored by Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler (the rhythm section of the Greenhornes). The latter duo gave The Raconteurs garage rock grit, while the previous pair celebrated and subverted classic rock tradition, a combination that flourished on Consolers of the Lonely, the band’s second album.

 

The Raconteurs entered an extended hiatus after its 2008 release but reunited nearly a decade later to deliver Help Us Stranger in 2019.

 

The roots of The Raconteurs lie in “Steady, As She Goes,” a song Brendan Benson and Jack White co-wrote together. Initially, the tune was homeless, but the duo were so satisfied with the song that they recruited drummer Patrick Keeler and bassist Jack Lawrence to form a full band (White had produced the Greenhornes in the past).

 

Settling in at Benson’s East Grand Studio, the group worked on the album that became Broken Boy Soldiers throughout the course of 2005.

 

Adopting the name The Raconteurs (in Australia, the group had to call themselves the Saboteurs due to a Queensland band already operating under their chosen moniker), the group released their debut in May 2016 and spent much of the year supporting the album.

 

By the end of the year, Broken Boy Soldiers peaked at seven in the U.S. and two in the U.K. and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for “Steady, As She Goes.”

 

The Raconteurs swiftly released their second album, Consolers of the Lonely, in March 2008; “Salute Your Solution” was released as a companion single. The band supported the album with an extensive tour containing appearances at numerous festivals, while the record itself peaked once again at seven in the U.S.; in the U.K., it reached number eight. Consolers of the Lonely earned Grammy nominations for Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Non-Classical Album; it took home the trophy for the latter.

 

Following the Consolers of the Lonely tour, The Raconteurs quietly entered a hiatus. Over the next few years, various members would play one-off shows together, with the group reuniting to play a few festival dates in 2011.

 

Rumours of a new album circulated in 2013 but that record never materialized.

 

In 2015, Benson and Lawrence played “Steady, As She Goes” and “Salute Your Solution” during an encore at a 2015 Jack White show in the band’s adopted hometown of Nashville.

 

Consolers of the Lonely received a deluxe vinyl reissue as part of Third Man Records’ Vault series in the fourth quarter of 2018. Accompanying the new Consolers set was a 7″ single containing “Sunday Driver” and “Now That You’re Gone,” the first new Raconteurs music in a decade. The two songs anchored Help Us Stranger, a full-length album released in June 2019.
