If you can get past the godawful name, you are left with an album probably as inconsistent as the songs we’ve heard from Jess Glynne this year. Incidentally, and then there was one from 2014, only Sam is left to represent. Incidently, far be it for me to kick at children but if I was to I’d start with Bars And melody.
You know Jess Glynn, right? She was the voice on Clean Bandits humongous “Rather Be”, as well as their less exalted but pretty great “Real Love”. This solo shot is almost the equal as well, with a gorgeous choppy intro and a typically tasty disco beat
Four boy R&B band Rixton are, well, more Boys II Men than 1D and therefore much better than you probably think, also, they come from my home town Manchester, England, plus, well let the Manchester Evening News tell you: “They will each get an inking of a broken heart tonight, after learning their pop song Me And My Broken Heart reached number one.”
The Will I Am single has been kicking around the States for months now and not getting any traction but over there they have more of a flair for this sort of stuff and noted the young (17 years of age!!) Cody Wise is a star in the making.
Lock Dem Hubs – Bubba Sparxxx – Welcome to 1993; this is the way we used to do it back in the day, it is like Bubba woke up one day and suddenly Wu Tang never existed -bright and dim at the same time – B-
This is a good chart, nice mix of stuff and best of all is the battle to be the next One Direction. I thought it was a shoo in for 5 Seconds Of Summer, but maybe The Vamps will beat em to it. Certainly “Last Night” is the best boy band song since “Kiss You”.
Why are the singles charts in the UK so much better than their album charts? Jess Glynne is back with a Chicago House DJ Route 94 (geddit) and is excellent, which gives her two great songs on these charts neither of which have hit the US yet. But they will!
