[INTRODUCING] THIRSTY THURSDAY WITH IS TROPICAL

[INTRODUCING] THIRSTY THURSDAY WITH IS TROPICAL

Raise your bottles of Newcastle to this week's Thirsty Thursday band, Is Tropical. The London-based band is comprised of Dominic Apa, Gary Barber and Simon Milner. This would make it THREE weeks in a row where our Thirsty Thursday act has been from the UK. We featured their new single "Dancing Anymore" in yesterday's Hump Day Mix. The song is offiically released on May 13th with an accompanying new eye popping video directed by Parisian hotshots MEGAFORCE. Having toured the world in support of their debut 'Native To', IS TROPICAL return with ‘I’m Leaving’ - the band's new album for French record label Kitsuné, due out on May 20, 2013. The album is produced by seasoned pro and friend of the band, Luke Smith (Depeche Mode, Foals), 'Dancing Anymore' features a duet between Gary and his girlfriend – one of many tracks on the record that, again for the first time, feature a female vocal (the rest are provided by Crystal Fighters' singer Ellie Fletcher). In case you guys missed it, check out the song now!

[LISTEN] HUMP DAY MIX - 5/1/13

[LISTEN] HUMP DAY MIX - 5/1/13

This week's Hump Day Mix has so many different great songs that I don't even know where to begin! I guess let's start with SugarBang's exclusive track "I'm A Song" by our fav dj/producer duo from Sweden, Awake. The Wanted released their new single of 2013 called "Walk Like Rihanna" but they weren't the only Brit boy band to do so. Up and comer quartet boy band, Union J, has quite a catchy pop song in "Carry On." This playlist also includes another track from The Great Gatsby from Emeli Sandé & The Bryan Ferry Orchestra. We've also been getting emails from indie artists and record labels to check out some new songs. I'm pleased to add new music by N8 ST9, Is Tropical, and Disclosure ft. Eliza Doolittle.

[NEW MUSIC] EMELI SANDÉ COVERS BEYONCÉ'S 'CRAZY IN LOVE'

[NEW MUSIC] EMELI SANDÉ COVERS BEYONCÉ'S 'CRAZY IN LOVE'

I'm not sure what's getting more hype, The Great Gatsby movie or The Great Gatsby soundtrack. But of all the songs I've heard from the sountrack thus far, the Emeli Sandé cover of Beyoncé's "Crazy In Love" featuring the Bryan Ferry Orchestra is by far my favorite. I love the reinterpretation of the song as a jazzy, 1920s flapper type of music on this particular track. Emeli Sandé delivers a solid vocal performance combined with the loud trumpets from the Bryan Ferry Orchestra. The Great Gatsby soundtrack will be out on May 7 but you can pre-order it now!
