24 Apr the Ava Max album rollout is happening
What is Happening is, whichever way you look at it, the most bizarre 2020 song name. Is Ava Max, that now stands 33.5m Spotify listeners, which makes her the world’s 47th most significant action, the strangest 2020 popstar? Let us not do it today.
Daniel Briskin, an extremely significant (and respectable ) fresh popstar from north London, has published a brand new song that starts off as something and ends up as yet another thing. Both these things are great things. British chanteuse Blithe, of failed a large interview with her some time back’ fame, yields now using the v sparky When I Had Not The One.
Much like preceding single The Entire 9 (also exceptionally listenable) she created it using David Stewart and Jessica Agombar, two songwriters who have appeared on Popjustice previously in marginally distinct functions and are using a small Moment at this time, having lately knocked out Dynamite for BTS and quite good Jonas Brothers single. Marina says this tune was partially inspired by the writing session proximity to the Jack The Ripper museum. (???) The brand new Oz one, Murder, strikes a mark somewhere between Lana and Sia but also sounds like nothing else that I discovered while scouring countless songs to this week’s playlist, and it is actually quite brilliant.
Next time somebody on Twitter is wanging about”where are the modern protest songs??? Etc”, stage them to #freebritney from Holy Spearit. Anna Straker’s among those musicians I talked to in that marathon Zoom session through the lockdown.
Seems quite a while ago now, does not it? All that insanity? Anyhow she has a brand new track with Gabrielle’Ahead To Them Closing Their Last Branch In 2008 I Used To Purchase My Batteries At M’ Aplin, and very enjoyable It’s too. Navvy’s The Closing Pieces EP is out now and it is not all of the feels but it is the huge majority of those.
