Stay Tuned | Halsey

Halsey, real name Ashley Frangipane, is a young American songwriter whom started her career uploading cover songs on Youtube and SoundCloud. After her song “Ghost” was discovered by the Astralwerks record label she released her debut EP Room 93 on October 2014. After that she started touring as support of The Kooks and Imagine Dragons. Her first album Badlands  has just come out on Austust and the latest single is called New Americana.

One of my favourite track is Colors, an electropop song clearly inspired by The 1975’s frontman and ex-boyfriend Matty Healy. Check it out and give me your feedback in the comments!

Chet Faker – Talk is Cheap

Nicholas James Murphy, aka Chet Faker, is an australian electronic musician who became famous when his cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” went  viral online. Then he released the EP Thinking in Textures on March 2012.   Two years later, Talk is Cheap was the first single released from his debut album “Built on Glass” and, despite it came out months ago, I’ve just discovered it and I thought to share this gem with you.  Also, I quite like the video of the song. Take a listen to the whole album, you won’t regret it.

Paolo Nutini – Scream (Funk my life up)

  After five years Paolo Nutini, the Scottish singer-songwriter of Italian descent, is back with the new album “Caustic Love” anticipated by this funk – see what I did here –  single. He released his debut album, “These Streets”, in 2006, which featured the hits New Shoes and Last Request. It was followed up with UK chart-topper “Sunny Side Up” in 2009, which won the Best Album category at the Ivor Novello Awards. Nutini, at his third album, has loyal fans – clearly i am one of those – who have not forgotten him despite his decision to stay out of the limelight in order to create new songs without pressure . Now I can’t wait to hear the whole album – out on April 15th – and listen his unique  voice live again.
