The Vinyl Countdown with Evanora and Zitrone9
By - Posted 16th July, 2015 at 7:15 pm Entertainment

Welcome to the first edition of The Vinyl Countdown, brought to you by Evanora and Zitrone. Every two weeks, we will be showcasing the best tunes from a variety of artists and genres. We hope you enjoy our reviews and don’t forget to listen and leave your own small reviews in the comment section below!
 
Melanie Martinez - Soap

Melanie Martinez – Soap / MUSIC VIDEO

Melanie Martinez is often criticised for her likeness to artists such as Halsey and Marina & The Diamonds, however, we believe she has a unique edge that sets her apart from the rest. Gaining prominence on The Voice USA in 2012, Martinez has stayed true to the quirky nature which is seeing her through to her debut album Cry Baby. Soap is a track we instantly fell in love with, from the emotionally charged, relatable lyrics to the unexpected beat drop. A true artist, Martinez’s music videos are stunning nods to her youth and ‘Soap’ is no exception. Cry Baby will be available to pre-order on July 24th! – Evanora

Sigma - Glitterball ft. Ella Henderson

Sigma – Glitterball ft. Ella Henderson / MUSIC VIDEO

After what was an incredible year for Sigma, gaining three chart topping hits including a collaboration with Paloma Faith, the duo are back with their chart topping drum and bass formula, working with Ella Henderson for the track Glitterball. She is also no stranger and earned a #1 single with her debut single Ghost despite placing just 6th on The X Factor UK in 2012. Glitterball is the perfect addition to your Ibiza 2k15 playlist and together, Sigma and Henderson have potentially produced this year’s summer smash but we will just have to wait until July 24th when the single is released! – Zitrone

Years & Years - Shine

Years & Years – Shine / MUSIC VIDEO

Years & Years stun us once again with their fifth single from their debut album Communion. This trio dominated the UK chart earlier this year with undeniable hit King and are becoming an unstoppable force with their latest release. Previously, the band won the BBC Sound of 2015 award, which sent them straight into the limelight. At its heart, the track is synth-pop with a contagious chorus, perfect for those summer nights around a barbecue. We expect the track to do terrifically well in the chart, and we can’t wait to see what comes next for Olly, Mikey & Emre! – Evanora

Foxes - Body Talk

Foxes – Body Talk / MUSIC VIDEO

So far this year, Foxes has kept a low profile, after featuring on Zedd’s 2013 hit single Clarity – which won a Grammy Award – and her 2014 debut album Glorious, which is adored by many. Foxes is now hoping to recreate this success with her second album, debuting the track Body Talk on Radio 1 last month. The track has a real ’80s synth-pop feel to it, which is also reflected in the official music video, where she sports a pair of tube socks and rollerskates, breaking out some moves at an American gas station – it certainly makes us want to boogie on the dance floor! Body Talk is released on July 24th and can be pre-ordered from iTunes now! – Zitrone

M.I.A - Swords

M.I.A – Swords / MUSIC VIDEO

Veteran rap goddess M.I.A. makes a comeback with Swords, the first release from her upcoming album Matahdatah. Those unfamiliar with M.I.A. will surely remember her infamous “Paper Planes” which introduced her to the music industry. Swords is a triumph, combining her history with Asian-inspired sounds and the progressive new style of contemporary hip hop. The track is part of an audiovisual project, released on Apple Music on the 14th of July, called Matahdatah Scroll 01 Broader Than a Border. Exciting new territory for M.I.A. and we can’t wait to hear more from her! – Evanora
