In a new regular feature for Vada, we’re going to deliver some tracks you simply have to hear – hence, the imaginative title. Below I bring you the latest tracks from Kygo, Gorgon City, Blonde and Ariana Grande.
Hopefully you’ll find your new jam right here.
Kygo & Labrinth – Fragile
If you’re a fan of Kygo, don’t go expecting his trademark tropical house beats. ‘Fragile’ is very different indeed but it’s no less addictive.
His stripped back production easily compliments a haunting vocal from Labrinth to produce something spine-tingling.
‘Fragile’ likely won’t make much of an impact on the charts, unfortunately, but it’s a stunning indicator of what is to come from Kygo’s debut album Cloud Nine. This is production at its best: simplistic, and equally as emotive as the vocal and the lyrical depth.
I’m very excited to hear what’s coming from Kygo. Every song thus far has been a gem.
Gorgon City – All Four Falls (Featuring Vaults)
On the flip side is ‘All Four Walls’ by Gorgon City – it’s everything you’d expect it to be. Hard beats, an addictive hook, and a polished vocalist culminate in a song that is sure to soundtrack many nights out over the coming months.
It’s not quite as good as their last single ‘Saving My Life’, but then what is? Both tracks indicate that Gorgon City’s upcoming sophomore album will outshine its predecessor.
Blonde & Craig David – Nothing Like This
It has been teased for weeks. Is it worth the wait? Hell yes!
‘Nothing Like This’ is an addictive follow-up to Blonde’s ‘All Cried Out’ and, after a few listens, I think it may actually outshine it. Deep beats alongside David’s unique tones means that this track is sure to volt to number one.
Ariana Grande – Be Alright
Ariana Grande is a one-trick pony. Except she’s had a few bangers. And ‘Be Alright’, the latest track off of her upcoming third album is another fine example.
Breathy vocals and deep house beats mean that this instantly shines on my radar. It’ll do well in the charts for its first week of release, but likely bomb afterwards. It’s no ‘No Problems’, is it?
