    New Music - This Week in New Music

    Warsnare ft Shanaz - Weeds Listen here Turn this one up real loud. Shanaz elevates this skank worthy electro track lyrically and vocally into an intense lament: "there's always somebody to miss and I miss you" Whilst the instrumental in itself has immediate impact, Warsnare and Shanaz prove themselves to be equals ...

    New Music - To Kill A King - Oh My Love

    Yes, mate. To Kill A King have returned with some brand smashing new music. 'Oh My Love' sounds like a sequel to 'Howling' (in our opinion one of TKAK's 'classics' ): love-weary lyricism/imagery, except now it's bigger, produced with an sharp eye for a mainstream market, and lets not forget ...
