James Bay – Wild Love 

James Michael Bay is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist. In 2014, he released his certified platinum single 'Hold Back the River' which peaked at Number 2 in the UK charts. He then released his UK No.1 debut studio album 'Chaos and the Calm' in 2015 

'Wild Love' turns from Bay’s usual acoustic tunes into a laid-back pop song. With a slight electric tone layered over the soft vocals and the hypnotising notion of the mellow music, it’s impossible not to be drawn into this new track.  

 

ONE OK ROCK – Change 

ONE OK ROCK is a Japanese band formed in Tokyo in 2005. The style of their music varies along the rock spectrum, from alternative to emo, to post-hardcore to pop rock.  They came up with the name ONE OK ROCK from the time one o'clock in the morning, the time that the band used to practice on weekends as they found the rehearsal space was much cheaper at this time. ONE OK ROCK can sing in both English and Japanese. 

'Change' has a feel-good vibe to it, with inspiring vocals and a backing track made for dancing to. The lyrics highlight that you don’t need to change who you are, only believe in yourself to change things around you for the better.  

 

Kiesza vs Malinchak – Mother 

Kiesa Rae Ellestad, known professionally as Kiesza, is a Canadian singer and multi-instrumentalist from Calgary and has most recently worked in New York City and London. She has written songs for artists such as Rihanna, Kylie Minogue and Icona Pop and is best known for her song 'Hideaway' which debuted at Number One in the UK Singles Chart in 2014. 

Chris Malinchak is an American electronic musician, DJ and record producer best known for his debut single 'So Good to Me' in 2013.  

'Mother' takes on a slightly dark and mysterious atmosphere, which contrasts to the bouncy beat of the backing track. Kiesza’s vocals are eerily delivered which adds to the sensual feel of the song and the elusive vibes it brings.
