Need U – Khmeii, Erameld

A combination of silky vocals and a calming instrumental that conjures up imagery of a late night drive is how I’d describe Need U by R&B songstress Khmeii and producer Erameld. Definitely worthy of a place in the charts.

Happy Hour – Hollie Cook

Being so versatile, it’s hard to pinpoint the exact genre of West London born Hollie Cook’s music. She would however best describe her music as ‘tropical pop’ and I can definitely see this on her latest single Happy Hour, the title track of her upcoming album. The song embraces numerous instruments and showcases Cook’s high vocal range.

Heart Guitar – Mallrat

Pop success Mallrat can draw you in just by her immaculate vocals, but on her recent album Butterfly Blue she is providing some fantastic melodies too, even collaborating with rap star Azealia Banks. Heart Guitar in particular has a beautiful tune and atmosphere, not to mention the relatable heartfelt lyrics.
