New Music Friday: May 18th 2018

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.

So much great new music this week – new albums from Charlie Puth, Arctic Monkeys, Beach House, Marian Hill, Kings, Sons of Zion and great singles from LSD, Selena Gomez, Rita Ora & friends, Bastille and John Mayer. Our pick of five new tracks to highlight:

Smith & Thell – DUMB

Smith & Thell are a Swedish folk / pop due who have been releasing singles since 2012. Their breakthrough was in 2015 with song “Statue”. This new song is another great pop number.



Beach House – Pay No Mind

The new album from this US band has been widely acclaimed and rightly so. It has a succession of great dreamy songs with lots of synth and good melodies. We’re playing some other tracks but here is the premier of track 2 “Pay No Mind”, a great album track which could qualify for release as a single.

Lake Street Dive – I Can Change

Like Beach House this US band formed in 2004. Their new album has hit the Billboard 200 album top 10 on release which is awesome. Lead single “Good Kisser” has had the attention but we really like this album track about letting go of hate and hangups.

Rueben Stone – Something For You

From his new EP Something For You this Melbourne artist blends genres – touches of reggae and pop combine in this breezy number that I’m sure will feature in many summer beach playlists.


R3hab & Conor Maynard – Hold On Tight

Dutch DJ R3hab and English singer Conor Maynard combine on this nice single. Conor started off on Youtube and has released a few singles, R3hab has a Sirius XM show called I NEED R3HAB. With 6 million monthly streams on spotify Conor is doing great and this nice pop number will help the cause!
