Its Friday so its time for five brand new tracks to get their first spin on the hour every hour from 9am. We’ll keep playing these tracks on New Zealand Net Radio, home of streaming radio ad free 24/7 throughout New Zealand.
Alae – Stone Cold
An Auckland (New Zealand) 3 piece band, this single is a followup to their debut “Too Strung Up”. They said on the NZ Music site:
‘Stone Cold’ is a celebration of the complexities of new love and the conflicting emotions that arise. Introduced with a delicate guitar line, a building groove and an airy, effervescent chorus it’s an aural embodiment of an emotional journey laid bare. Vocalist Alex Farrell-Davey explains – “Love is a consuming and confronting high – it can alter your perspective on everything. Once the hit sinks in, paranoia and the second guessing begins. The song goes on to accept the conflict as part of the whole experience and finally brushes it off in the chorus -“There’s all these things that I want to do with you by my side. For the first time in my entire life, well, I don’t mind.”
Eliott – Over & Over
Another very fresh artist, this is Eliott’s second single off her forthcoming debut EP. The Australian artist said:
‘Over and Over’ is a slow-burning electronic ballad about a relationship which is “not necessarily a romantic love, but a relationship between two people that no matter how much time they spend apart, days, months, years, they’ve always got your back – a kind of love you rarely find.”
NOTD – I Wanna Know (Ft Bea Miller)
Love the album cover of this new single from the Stockholm, Sweden duo. They’ve teamed up with the talented Bea Miller (19 years old but released no less than 3 EPs last year!) for this cool little number.
Princess Nokia – Look Up Kid
Off her new mixtape A Girl Cried Red this is an interesting number. We don’t play a lot of Hip Hop/Rap but maybe this is mislabelled as such – its got a great tune, nice guitar riff and a bit of spunk. See what you think … the mixtape is awesome, streets ahead of some rap artists that dominate the charts (in our humble opinion of course!).
ZAYN – Let Me
This British artist is making waves and has released this second single off an upcoming album. Its a slick catchy number.
