Love Me – The 1975

Manchester indie band The 1975 are back after a two year break with Love Me, an eighties inspired pop track that suggests a change in direction for the group. You would be forgiven for finding Love Me a tad underwhelming on first listen, especially compared with their previously vibrant singles Chocolate and Girls, but after a few listens you find yourself warming to the almost hypnotic beat. Definitely a grower, and fans of Duran Duran are sure to love it.

Hey Everybody! – 5 Seconds of Summer

It’s fair to say that the launch of Australian group 5 Seconds of Summer’s second album Sounds Good Feels Good has (so far) been a slight disappointment: lead single She’s Kinda Hot failed to break the top ten on its release and hype levels have generally been low. Unfortunately, the release of second single Hey Everybody! is unlikely to correct this course with its mundane chorus and forgettable lyrics, and not even the exclamation mark in the song’s title can stave off the monotony of this dull track.

Kiss Me – Olly Murs

Former X Factor contestant Olly Murs makes his return to the chart with the new track Kiss Me, the lead single for the re-release of his Never Been Better album which drops next month. Kiss Me is everything you’d expect from an Olly Murs track: it’s catchy; it’s inoffensive; it’s a little bland, but it’s Olly and we love him.

Track of the Week: Something in the Way You Move – Ellie Goulding

The promotion for forthcoming album Delirium is in full swing for songstress Ellie Goulding, with the latest instalment being the release of promotional song Something in the Way You Move. A fantastic pop track that is just as good as any ‘proper’ single the artist has released so far. To say that Ellie knows how to make a good pop track is an understatement, and as usual her unique vocals shine over the infectious beat to create an instantly catchy hook. The wait for Delirium has just got even more unbearable.
