June 2021 Favourites: 'The Boy From Michigan' Is Here For A 'Blue Weekend' But It's No 'Lost Cause'


Billie Eilish John Grant Wolf Alice

June saw summer start and Matt Hancock's reign as Health Secretary finish after he was caught breaking CoVID19 rules by kissing his aide at work. Wimbledon began for the first time in two years and England's inability to beat Germany in a knockout football tournamnent ended after a 55 year wait with a 2-0 win at Wembley. Ed Sheeran arrived with some new, questionable Bad Habits, and Winston Marshall quit Mumford & Sons after 14 years because he was being hounded by the "cancel culture mob" for a personal tweet about right-wing journalist Andy Ngo. Tick Tock artist Mabel returned with her first new single of the year, Jorja Smith went Home, KSI had a Holiday and Lorde made a welcome return with Solar Power. However, our top 5 releases of the month were even better than that - let's take a look.

Upcoming Releases: A Spirit Of Independence Is Coursing Through Our Top 5 Favourite New Records For July


Billie Eilish Lana Del Rey Laura Marling

With CoVID restrictions beginning to ease and the prospect of live festival music no longer a distant dream there does seem to be a reserved air of optimism beginning to permeate into everyday life. As both Wimbledon and the British Grand Prix expect to host a capacity crowd, and the EURO 2020 final at Wembley is set to host 60,000 football fans, surely it can't be long before the green light is given to music venues, festivals and other events to open their doors and welcome back guests. Many concerts are still being cancelled due to the uncertainty, the latest big one being Dua Lipa who has rescheduled to 2022, however July should bring with it more sunshine, more good news and hopefully the first of a wave of gigs, shows and festivals that are all hoping that they can go ahead. Coupled with the likelihood of live music, Independence Day celebrations, Bastille Day and World Emoji Day!! there are also some great new releases to look forward to. Here's our top five.

The BRIT Awards 2021: In No Particular Order, The Winners Are.....


Taylor Swift Dua Lipa Harry Styles Haim Billie Eilish Rag'n'Bone Man Elton John Little Mix

With a great deal of excitement, a lot of relief and some anxiousness, the biggest night on the UK's musical calendar went ahead as the BRIT's 2021 celebrated the stars and artists that have made the biggest impact in music over the last year. As part of the Government's pilot scheme to get events back up and running safely the O2 once again hosted the BRIT's, not in front of the usual 20,000 fans and invited guests, but in front of an audience made up of 2,500 care workers and 1,500 music industry related others, with each of them having had to provide a negative CoVID test.

Jack Whitehall was back again, hosting the first major event at the O2 since March 2020. After a brief Line Of Fire themed intro, Foreplay, aka Coldplay, were first up performing their brand new track, Higher Power, on a floating barge in the Thames opposite the arena. With holograms and pyrotechnics galore Chris and his band lit up the night sky to get the show off to a suitably stellar start.

Billie Eilish

April 2021 Favourites: We Found 'Californian Soil' To Be Sublime, 'Introvert' Extraordinary And 'Fight For You' A Fitting Oscar Winner


London Grammar The Offspring Taylor Swift Billie Eilish

April 2021 may have been one of the coldest in 60 years, but there were still enough hot releases to warm our hearts and fuel our fires. Taylor Swift released the first of six albums that she is set to re-record with her version of Fearless, Demi Lovato made a welcome come back with her seventh album, Dancing with the Devil... the Art of Starting Over and Wolf Alice delivered an incendiary second single, Smile, from their forthcoming album, Blue Weekend. Lana Del Rey, on trend with the colour palette, announced she would release her second album of the year, following up Chemtrails Over The Country Club, with Blue Banisters on July 4th. Olivia Rodrigo released a strong follow-up single to her huge hit, drivers licence whilst Billie Eilish dropped one of her weakest singles in years. Rapper DMX sadly died after suffering a heart-attack and AJ Tracey flouted CoVID rules as he attempted an eventually abandoned meet-and-greet, but none of them made our top five. Here's who did.

Billie Eilish - Your Power single review


Billie Eilish is a phenomenon; she is immensely talented, artistic, creative, bold, individual and inspiring. Why then has she chosen to set most of those characteristics and qualities to one side on her latest single, Your Power? Eilish is arguably the voice of her generation, she is a global superstar with a huge fan base and has already made an incredible impact on music and youth culture. Billie Eilish has recorded more influential music in the last four years than most artists could wish to even get close to in forty. Bad Guy, Bury A Friend, You Should See Me In A Crown and last year's final track, Therefore I Am, are all game changing, radical tracks that have offered something new and vital, pushing the boundaries of music forward on each occasion.  

Billie Eilish - Your Power single review

https://admin.contactmusic.com/images/home/images/content/billie-eilish-your-power-video-still.jpg

Your Power is a good song, some might say excellent even. It embraces the soft and tender side of Billie Eilish and exposes her vulnerabilities. What is ostensibly a mild folk song, aside from the contemporary vocal treatment, has a hypnotic quality and a woozy sensibility that fits with some of Billie's previous work. Unlike her previous work however, Your Power does not showcase the formidable talents that she has. Your Power feels like it should be a Phoebe Bridgers song, in fact to the uninitiated you could be forgiven for thinking that it was a Phoebe Bridgers song. You could easily slot Your Power in to Bridgers' breakthrough debut album Stranger In the Alps without anyone even realising. This is both a tribute to the impact that Phoebe Bridgers has made in recent years, but also a signal that Billie Eilish is not without her flaws.
