Olly Murs - Grow Up
Olly Murs returns to radiofriendly pop on ‘Grow Up’

If you ask us, Olly Murs came back with one of the best singles of his career earlier this year. ‘You Don’t Know Love’ is a powerful synth pop banger with a lot of attitude and a big chorus. If you ask the British charts however, this track was not at all up there with his most successful work to date. That is probably why Olly decided to lay off the synth pop for a while and return to the catchy radio pop he used to put out before with the new single ‘Grow Up’, also taken from the upcoming album 24 Hours, to be released in November. If only it was the good kind of radio pop…

Bruno Mars - 24K Magic
The words “24K Magic” might not have been familiar, but everything gleaming inside of it — the glittery disco synths, the cheesed-up vocoder flourishes, the popped-collar call-and-responses — certainly was. That doesn’t make Mars’ grand return any less exciting, or “24K Magic” any less impressive: The reference points are just clearer now, more than they’ve ever been, and if a synthesis of some well-worn ideas can stand on its own, what’s to prevent the masses from pressing play

Nothing, it turns out. “24K Magic” is probably going to be a smash hit, just a few months after another piece of superb nostalgia, Stranger Things, dominated pop culture. You know the familiar feeling you got when you first heard the Stranger Things theme music and watched those red letters slowly come together onscreen? Bruno Mars knows that feeling well, and has harnessed it into a killer groove.

Passenger - Anywhere
Singer/songwriter Passenger – aka Michael David Rosenberg – returns with new single, “Anywhere.” “Anywhere” serves as the second single from Passenger’s forthcoming studio album, Young as the Morning Old as the Sea.  Young arrives in late September.  While that’s a few weeks off, “Anywhere” sufficiently whets the listener’s palate. 

“Anywhere” features a relatively fast tempo with a breezy, light sound. A distinctive, recurrent riff gives this record a clear identity. Speaking of clear, clarity characterizes the vocals by Passenger. His distinct pipes beautiful paint the backdrop. Passenger never has to fight the production; it’s poised and perfectly assembled.

Some other highlights of “Anywhere” include an excellent chord progression. The refrain wins the nod for best progression. Besides Passenger’s awesome lead vocals, strong backing vocals support him on the refrain.  Finally, there’s a wonderful assortment of sounds– guitar, organ, wind instruments, etc.
