Introducing Marianas Trench…

We Brumoters love a good sassy, group of musicians and our recent obsession Marianas Trench are no different!

Not only are these lads able to pen incredible songs (most with a hint of sass – including their newest tune Pop 101, which references Justin Timberlake, Ke$ha, Mumford & Sons, Jason Derulo and more!), but they’re also pretty sassy on Twitter!

The Canadian pop rock band is made up of (from Left to Right) – Mike Ayley (Bassist & vocalist), Josh Ramsay (Lead Singer & rhythm guitarist – who also helped pen Carly Rae Jepsen’s summer hit ‘Call Me Maybe), Ian Casselman (Drummer & backing vocalist) & Matt Webb (Lead guitarist & vocalist), who we believe are going to take over the UK with their incredible tracks (though this is as soon as they decide to come to the UK… that’s right lads, we’re waiting!).

Although a few of our Brumoters had found this group nearly 7 years ago, when the band released their debut studio album – they only recently re-discovered the band after the release of their latest tune

And they lads are yet to officially release their albums and tour over here in the UK.

Though if the group are to announce a UK/European tour, we will announce the details for you all!

With three albums and two EP’s under their belt, the band have a large arsenal of amazing tracks for you all to check out – like Shake Tramp (the video is just as hilarious as the track title) and Desperate Measures, both of which you’ll be able to listen to via the video below!

The group’s most recent track ‘Pop 101’ is currently available to purchase on iTunes & Amazon, so why not listen to it below before purchasing it!

BREAKING NEWS: Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson announce duets album?

What’s better than a Cody Simpson album? and What is better than a Justin Bieber album?

How about a Justin Bieber AND Cody Simpson duets album!

That’s right guys! Cody announced the big news earlier and like most people, we did not see this coming. However, that doesn’t make us any less excited!

After many teasing Instagram pictures and tweets, many figured that the two biggest acts in pop were working on a song together, but it’s going to be a dream come true as two gorgeous lads are instead working on an entire album!

In an interview with The Sydney Daily Telegraph, Cody said that he and JB teamed up for the duets album and that it will be released sometime in November.

“It is a smack bang duets [album],” he said. “Justin has been a good mate of mine for a while. It’s just us writing. He told me he felt like I’d figured myself out and have grown into what he knows I will be so he was like, ‘I see you as that guitarist, singer-songwriter you’ve always wanted to be.'”

However, Cody said that he and Justin are “definitely different people and come from different places and different worlds.” But mentioned that they are both working well together and that he has always been “extremely cool and gracious” towards him.

No other details have been released about the duets album other than it’s November release date, although Cody has posted a short teasing clip of his new music on Instagram, which you can check out below!

Let us know your opinions on this new announcement? Are you excited for the Cody Simpson and Justin Bieber album collaboration?

This uptempo track is a perfect summer anthem, which we know you will be blasting for a while.

Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea – ‘Problem’

American pop beaut Ariana Grande has teamed up with the gorgeous Iggy Azalea on her newest and brilliant track ‘Problem’, which features a further collaboration with Big Sean.

Ariana Grande, 21 released the 90s influenced pop track with an urban twist on June 29th here within the UK and is already racing through the charts!

Embedded image permalink

Problem is an incredible track, which mixes Grande’s pop influence with Big Sean and Iggy Azalea’s urban element, about “the feeling of being absolutely terrified to re-approach a relationship that’s gone sour, but you want to more than anything.”

Grande perfectly conveyed the message throughout the lyrics with her immaculate vocals: “Every time you touch me and say you love me, I get a little bit breathless. I shouldn’t want it, but it’s you.”

Embedded image permalink

Problem is to feature on Grande’s upcoming Sophomore studio album ‘My Everything’, which if the current success of the single is anything to go by, it will be racing up the charts very quickly after its release.

Ariana Grande is an incredible, rising young talent with a large number of amazing tracks within her arsenal! And we personally can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

Problem is out NOW!

5 Seconds of Summer – ‘Don’t Stop’

Every time you release new music, it gets harder for us and you know it, know it, know it!

5 Seconds of Summer are back with their second single ‘Don’t Stop’, following the incredible success of their debut single ‘She Looks So Perfect’, which gained a number one spot in 39 countries and we LOVE their newest single!

The Australian band, made up of Michael Clifford, Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings and Calum Hood burst onto the music scene after playing an array of shows – however, they sky-rocketed to stardom after touring with British-Irish boyband One Direction.

We have been following the 5SOS journey before the lads became the pop-rock phenomenon’s they are today and it’s no surprise that they are causing hysteria, leaving girls and boys alike crying, shaking and even swooning over the teen heartthrobs who have stolen their hearts.

But 5SOS aren’t your typical boyband, but that’s why we love them, they each play their own instruments and are bringing back the revival of pop-punk music to the masses breaking the mould and being a band for everyone to enjoy!

Don’t Stop is instantly memorable and the mix of infectious lyrics and perfect vocals have left us signing along for hours on end, it will get you dancing around your room, head banging in the car and even singing it in the shower, it’s a great summer song and will leave you in a great feel good mood.

This is incredibly catchy tune teamed with the music video shows 5 Seconds of Summer’s fun personalities and the idea that they don’t take themselves too seriously as they adopt superhero persona’s to help the world: Dr. Fluke (Luke), Mike-Ro-Wave (Michael), Cal Pal (Calum) and Smash (Ashton)!

Their good deeds range from helping old ladies cross the road, litter picking, saving kittens and beating up ninja’s to save the ‘damsel in distress’ all whilst wearing tights… Oh yes girls, tights!

Don’t Stop is available NOW!

And 5SOS’ debut, self-titled album is available for pre-order!

We absolutely love what 5 Seconds of Summer are doing and if you haven’t seen the video already, check it out below:

Little Mix – ‘Salute’

Little Mix are once again showing the world why they’re one of our favourite girlband’s with the release of their amazing new single ‘Salute’, which features on their second studio album of the same name.

Little Mix – who were form exclusively for the eighth series of the X-Factor UK and were the first group to ever win the competition – consists of Jade, Perrie, Jesy and Leigh-Anne, released the track half-way through the UK leg of their Salute Tour.

Salute is an amazing, upbeat R&B track, which promotes women power all around the world and reminds us of a modern day Destiny’s Child with their feisty attitude and female empowerment message – Brumotions salute these ladies!

The track has already received an incredible response from the girls Mixers, who have been playing their new music video non-stop to hear the great tune and to see the girls at their best.

The lyrics showcase the immaculate vocal abilities from all four girls and delves into deeper issues to spread a positive message to all of their fans: “Don’t need ammunition on a mission and we’ll hit you with the truth. Divas, queens, we don’t need no man, salute.”

Salute received mild success back when the album was first released and although we love the track, we’re not sure about it jumping up into the top 10 anytime soon, but we obviously wish the ladies all the best with the success of their newly released track and we’ll be playing this tune on repeat for the next week or so!

Little Mix are rising stars and proving that people still love a good ‘ol fashioned girlband! And we can’t wait to see what the ladies have planned with their third album, especially as they have spoke out about working with more American producers.

Salute is out NOW!
