Each week, The Courier’s Music Editors are working with Newcastle Student Radio to bring you the best new tracks from the week before...
‘I Miss Those Days - MTV Unplugged’
If you don’t know Bleachers, you should really get to know. Their new live EP features the likes of Lorde and Carly Rae Jepsen. It’s a perfect introduction to the band with lead-singer Jack Antonoff’s phenomenal charisma clear to hear.

‘Nothing Left For You’
One of the more dramatic moments on an otherwise pretty relaxing and chilled out album, this bluesy track offers Smith’s typically beautiful vocals with the support of some killer interjections from a powerful gospel choir.
Ally Wilson, The Courier
Self-described doom-surf trio The Wytches have released two versions of this new track: an eerily relaxing acoustic version, and a ‘sludge version’ that cranks up the heaviness. Thoroughly haunting stuff!
Charlie Isaac, The Courier
‘Yet Another Dig’
Bob the Drag Queen feat. Alaska Thunderfuck
Am I cringe because my track of the week is two drag queens singing about lace fronts and spilling the T? Maybe, but I am definitely gonna be playing on repeat over the next 5 months..
Meg Smith, NSR
Some have called Norwegian songwriter Sigrid ‘the next Lorde’ and after listening to ’Strangers’, I have to agree. Sigrid’s soft voice opens the track, gently building to an electric, catchy chorus - the perfect pop song.
