Music: Florence + the Machine – Spectrum – Single Review

“Say my name and every colour illuminates”

Artists: Florence + the Machine

Genre: Pop, Rock, Indie

Released: 6thJuly 2012

The Calvin Harris Remix of Spectrum is a thumping, crying, and eerily noted song that draws in the listener. The clubbing feel is contributed by Calvin Harris, and meshes well with the the classic rock style of Florence + the Machine.

Like most club tracks, this has repeating lyrics, but it’s worth noting that it’s an upbeat and positive song.

Music: Conor Maynard – Vegas Girl – Single Review

“This is for the girl that can get down low”

Artists: Conor Maynard

Age: 21 November 1992 (Age 19)

Genre: Pop, Synthpop

Released: 22nd July 2012

Banking on Twitter, Conor tries to find a girl that he bumped into in the street. After creating a viral storm, Vegas Girl makes her appearance.

This song, from an upcoming UK artist is pretty damn catchy. His second single from the first album Contrast, it has hooks and rhymes that mimic a developed style.

He’s being billed as a UK Justin Bieber. I think that’s fairly inaccurate, Conor has his own scrubbed-clean-but-urban style.

Listen to the song to see rising talent.
