The new single of Neal Francis: Can't Stop The Rain is according to me THE single of the week. Listen to this blues/rock and very catchy track with a slice of Damian Albarn! This single is screaming for airplay! So give it a spin!


NEAL FRANCIS - CAN'T STOP THE RAIN

Graced with a smoldering slide-guitar solo from the legendary Derek Trucks, Can’t Stop The Rain arrives as the first unabashedly hopeful moment on In Plain Sight. “I wrote that with my buddy David Shaw, who came up with the refrain and this idea that even though life’s going to throw all this shit at you, there’s still so many things to be grateful for,” says Francis. Propelled by the track’s cascading piano lines and wildly soaring vocals, that refrain takes on an unlikely anthemic power as Francis shares a bit of gently expressed encouragement: “You can’t stop the rain/It’s always coming down/It’s always gonna fall/But you’re not gonna drown.”

NAYANA IZ - RANI

One of the UK's most distinctive new talents, NAYANA IZ share’s a new track today titled Rani. Her immense sound is translated in the form of futuristic club-rap, injected with sharp techno jabs and hard-hitting, stacotto bars. The bold production of Rani, with its dark, gritty undertones, heavy bassline and experimental soundscape, nods to halcyon,  Boy In Da Corner era Dizzee Rascal.


DAY WAVE - BEFORE WE KNEW (RADIO EDIT)

A listless, bouncy track that captures the ennui of love found and love lost and love found again and the ups and downs that come with it. Day Wave first emerged from the Bay Area in 2015, when Jackson Phillips began releasing a series of singles and EPs that racked up tens of millions of streams on Spotify and garnered rave reviews in both the US and Europe. Brand new single Before We Knew is a wonderful melancholic indie gem. For fans of Real Estate, Wild Nothing, Grandaddy, …

 

MILD HIGH CLUB - DIONYSIAN STATE

The second single from Mild High Club's forthcoming album Going Going GoneDionysian State is particularly apt for the times. Traversing genres from jazz, electronic music, and Brazilian folk to avant-garde, AOR and psychedelic rock, the song portrays an empirical decline before coming together to toast the madness.

SHIBASHI - WE WERE YOUNG (FT. CHLOE HOWL)

Brazil born, Belfast based Shibashi AKA Gigi Monterro today drops his second single. Famously shy of the spotlight, Shibashi AKA Gigi Monterro’s reputation within the underground dance community is far from buried. A globetrotting pioneer whose fabled live sets have put down markers as far afield as Rio, Ibiza, Berlin and Bangor, Gigi is internationally recognised as one of the industry’s finest and is highly sought after when it comes to high quality collabs.
