Each week, The Courier’s Music Editors are working with Newcastle Student Radio to bring you the best new tracks from the week before…
RAYE, Mabel, Stefflon Don
Three strong, female artists on the rise, you wouldn’t mess with this lot. RAYE can do no wrong at the moment with yet another bop.
-Toby Bryant, The Courier
‘Me And My Mind’
Fresh from Bournemouth, Jazz Morley’s latest instalment has some lovely harmonies and makes you want to light a candle and get in the bath.
-Ally Wilson, The Courier
‘Almost Had to Start a Fight/ In and Out of Patience’
Seeing a return to the punchy, three-chord punk aesthetic that put Parquet Courts on the map, this two-part single is raw, restless and as catchy as ever.
-Charlie Isaac, The Courier
The Empire Police
This perfectly angsty hit boats more heavier vibes than their previous releases but with such a great sing-along, head bopping chorus, this new direction works well for the Preston Lads.
–Meg Smith, NSR
‘Who You Are’
This latest infectious track from Liverpudlian four-piece SPINN is a breezy, dreamy delight. Make sure you catch SPINN in Newcastle later this month when they are set to play Little Buildings on March 15th – it’s one not to be missed.
-Amy Woods, NSR
