Uh oh, here we go again!
As we all take on another week of unpredictability and excitement together, you’ll be relieved to know that you can count on UnCOVered to once again bring you the latest and greatest music. So no matter what happens, here’s another seven tunes to get you through the week…
Modern Baseball – Apple Cider, I Don’t Mind
Dreary, pop-punk kings, Modern Baseball, are back with their May release, Holy Ghost. And if the first two tracks that they’ve shared on Run For Cover Records’ SoundCloud are anything to go by, it’s going to be a great mix of melancholy, nostalgia and toe-tapping goodness. Apple Cider, I Don’t Mind gives you all three in spades to put you in warm, fuzzy mood for the rest of the day.
Chase & Status – Control feat. Slaves
“Who do you think you’re talking to!?!” Back with a provocative video and track that goes in. Hard! Just in time for the British festival favourite to headline Wireless this summer, Saul and Will are back on their ever-rising and well-deserved platform, breaking the mould and straight-up kicking it to the establishment.
Majid Jordan – My Love feat. Drake
Drake sure does have a talent for spotting talent. His record label signed the duo and they were credited on Drake’s Hold On, We’re Going Home of 2013. With an alternative take on the urban sound, it’s clear that they have an ear smooth sound and mild melodies enough to potentially become a serious contender in the music world.
M83 – Do It, Try It
Anthony Gonzalez are back after five years with Junk. That’s the name of the album, not a description as well we can all but guess it will anything but that. Judging by their first single from the record Do It, Try It they are indeed back and still possess their distinctive sound. Junk released on April 8th.
Ty Dolla $ign – Drop That Kitty feat. Charlie XCX & Tinashe
Many won’t know who Ty Dolla is, but he’s been making noise across the Atlantic for a while. One could say he’s Drake-esque; his ability to intertwine old school R’n’B with modern Hip Hop and a dashing of dance beats. This promotional single didn’t make the album Free TC, but it’s a catchy song from a very relevant artist.
Foxing – Night Channels
When you take a song that’s 4.18 and turn it into a video that’s 11.20, you’ll find it becomes more of a touching indie movie than a music video. But no less should be expected of the criminally underrated, Foxing, who tell incredible stories with their unique, multi-layered approach to shoegaze indie rock. There’s not much you can really to say to describe this one except, sit back, relax and let the emotions take over.
Raury – Trap Tears feat. Key!
The trapping pressures of America’s more impoverished areas are an all too familiar topic in modern Hip-Hop. However, Raury’s youthful sincerity at only 19 seems to breathe new life into the subject, channeling the thoughtful vibes of a young Common. Trap Tears’ sweet acoustic accompaniments transition to a more vibrant chorus, leaving you with an experience that has your head nodding past your heavy heart.
