PressPLAY OK is here to promote new music as well as sifting through the mountain of guff that already exists. From Beyonce to Beach House, we don’t care where it comes from so long as it satisfies our ears to climax.
If you want to send us new music, if you don’t agree with what we’ve said, or if you just want to say hi and make pals, hit firstname.lastname@example.org for some loving.
Episode 16: Lucy Rose
What happens when you lose faith in your own art? For the last episode of the series we talk to the beautiful soul that is Lucy Rose and her journey to becoming an independent act on her own terms. We also discuss her new collection of remixes, as well as rating the week's new music.
As always, thank you for listening (on iTunes, Acast, or wherever you choose). We'll be back later in the year with more new episodes.
Episode 15: Mikky Ekko
We're combating heat, technical issues and an all-time high level of thirst this week, but we're still ever so proud of bringing you a chat with artist & songwriter extraordinaire Mikky Ekko. We talk about that Rihanna collaboration and his new musical direction, all while rating this week's new music.
As usual you can find us on iTunes & Acast; do please rate, review, and subscribe if you can.
Episode 14: JONES
Joining us this week on the podcast is one of our favourite London soul talents, JONES. She's impressed us with a slew of collaborations recently as well as her delightful new EP London (part of a trilogy being released this year). She talks about her new music, mental health, performing on Jools Holland, and - erm - introduces us to a rumour about Lana Del Rey farting. Plus we have the usual discussion of new music, this week from Ariana Grande, Anne-Marie, and Liam Payne.
Find us on iTunes, Acast, and Podcast Addict; don’t forget to like, rate, and subscribe, and stay tuned for even more episodes in weeks to come.
Humorous, knowledgable and no punches pulled. A great way to pass the commute and plenty of insight into the 'music world' you wouldn't ordinarily get.
Stumbled across this via the Rae Morris ep and instantly went back and listened to all the other episodes. What a great listen! I absolute love honest music critique and I havent really found anything to fill that gap since the very early days of the Radio 1 Review Show! (Before it became a total love-in) Particularly with the way pop seems to have stagnated so much over the last few years (do we need EVERYONE to hop on the tropical/post Bieber bandwagon??) this kind of knowledgable disucssion is a breath of fresh air.
Also, if the special guest format were to be scrapped in favour of having Becky Hill on every week I'd totally be down with that too! Keep up the awesome work!
LOL of the Pops
A humour filled take of this week's new pop. With A list stars.
I've become mildly obsessed with it
