AJ Smith – ‘Billy Joel’

AJ Smith isn’t trying to be Billy Joel in his song of the same name. It’s not even a tribute to the man himself, really, but rather, in the tradition of Eric Church’s ‘Springsteen’, or Taylor Swift’s ‘Tim McGraw’, it’s a song that alludes to a famous singer with an equally distinctive sound.

Pennan Brae – ‘Pay Dirt’ (Lyric Video)

Pennan Brae’s sound is steeped in the sound of classic American rock and blues, storytellers such as Muddy Waters, BB King, and Elmore James. He’s also influenced by the likes of Elton John, and the sounds of the 80s: in fact he describes himself as the kind of rocker who “travels back in time yet remains unmistakably contemporary”. He builds huge rock songs, based on three or four chords, and gives them a timeless classic quality, turning humour, nostalgia, pleasure and pain into intense pop-rock and piano-driven ballads.

JHelix – ‘Baby Yellow (In A Dream)’

‘Baby Yellow’ (In A Dream)’ is the latest single from JHelix, and comes from his fevered musical imagination. The track sees the songwriter and producer take propulsive beats and pair them with the smoothest of psych guitar rhythms, which in combination with the dream experience music video, makes for a very pleasing few minutes away from our reality.

TripleYoThreat – ‘Always Lookin’ Fly As Fuck’

TripleYoThreat is a lucky man. He survived being rear-ended by a semi while he was riding his motorcycle, and shouldn’t even be walking, let alone releasing a new single. He also got in to study at UCLA, then dropped out – not once, but twice. On top of all that, he’s an Indian rapper – pretty unique! He’s certainly a “triple yo threat”, and the name is a good fit.
