New Music – Real Lies, All About She, Rich Homie Quan
This week’s new music hurrahs for the indie, pop and hip-hop tribes
“World Peace” is a peach of a tune, like a slice of New Order’s Balearic bliss-out from the “Technique” high-life. It will be fascinating to hear if London trio behind it have more such aces up their sleeves – and if they live up to the ideas and bravado from recent interviews.
Sassy and smart new-school pop from sussed trio Jon Clare, James Tadgell and Vanya Taylor. Having worked with acts like Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Jessie J and others, the trio are now seeking the limelight themselves with tracks like warm-hearted electro shimmy “Higher (Free)”
New-school Atlanta rapper building a rep and making a move for the mainstream hip hop landscape with his triple-play of “Still Goin’ In” mix-tapes. Probably stands a better chance in the music game the longer he stays away from his previous unsuccessful career as a burglar.
