The ‘OR’ Game with… The Maine

When our Brumoters complete interviews with some of the amazing artists around, we like to play a little game called ‘OR!’

The basic rules are to give the artists two separate options and have them choose the one they like the most… For example, Pepsi or Coca Cola!

This particular game of ‘OR’ was completed with The Maine’s bassist Garrett Nickelsen and lead guitarist Jared Monaco!

Union J – Tonight (We Live Forever)

UJ

British foursome Union J are back with their newest single ‘Tonight (We Live Forever)’, which is set to feature on their second studio album and is already reaching great success after entering the iTunes Top 100 Chart through pre-order sales alone!

Union J

Union J, who are more popularly known for their time on the ninth series of The X Factor – consists of JJ Hamblett, Josh Cuthbert, George Shelley and Jaymi Hensley (Left to Right), who will be releasing their newest track on August 17th.

Tonight (We Live Forever) is an optimistic and bubbly track, which has the makings of a single worthy of a Number 1 chart position!

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

The lads have said: “The track sums up what Union J are about it terms of our sound and it also reflects who we are together – a group of friends having the time of our lives.” – Which is pretty easy to see when watching the incredible music video.

Although Union J’s newest track is completely different to the single’s released from their debut album, we expect the lads to be receiving the same amount of success!

Tonight (We Live Forever) has already raced through the charts before it’s official release, so we have no doubt that this track will soon be bouncing into the UK charts!

Union J are currently planning a 2015 UK tour, so make sure to keep up to date with us, here at Brumotions – and we’ll bring you the details ASAP!

Tonight (We Live Forever) is available for pre-order now!

And why not check out the amazing video (Directed by the incredible Direction X) for the track below:

After having a three year break away from the UK, Cher Lloyd is back and better than ever with her newest track: ‘Sirens’

Lloyd showcases a new musical direction, a more mature sound and amazing vocal talent on her newest track, which is set to feature on her second album ‘Sorry I’m Late’, which will be available only next week!

Lloyd, who became popular after finishing in fourth place on Series 7 of The X Factor UK, signed to Syco Records shortly after the final of the competition – has spent three years extending her career across the pond and now she’s back home and planning on conquering the UK charts.

And Sirens is just the track to help Lloyd achieve her goal!

Not only is Lloyd’s newest track extremely catchy, but the young star’s fantastic vocals and the track’s amazing power-ballad melody will have you playing the track on repeat for a while.

And if the lyrics don’t already have your eyes watering from the emotion, then the music video will surely do that!

Especially as Lloyd has revealed that the music video for the track was heavily influenced by a childhood event in which her father was arrested when she was only five years old!

The lyrics perfectly reveal how music Lloyd has grown and improved as an artist!

And it’s great to finally see the young star moving away from Swagger Jagger and adding her name to tracks that people can relate to.

We, Brumoters have no doubt that this track will be jumping into the charts fairly soon!

Cher Lloyd is an incredible artist who has only grown over time, so we can’t wait to see what the young talent comes up with next and we hope that she has a number of amazing announcements for her incredible UK fanbase soon!

Sirens is available NOW!

And if you haven’t already, why not check out the amazing video for the track below:

Rough Copy – ‘Street Love’

After wowing the general public on the 2013 series of The X Factor with their smooth vocals, fun personalities and street style, Rough Copy are set to burst onto the music scene with their debut single, Street Love!

The London trio made up of Kazeem, Joey and Sterling, now signed to Epic Records, offer a re-working of 80s classic ‘Sweet Love’ by Anita Baker, with a twist in the verses showcasing their new musical style and a lot of personality.

Street Love is instantly catchy and offers a great opening tune, which is extremely memorable, especially if you know the original track – it quickly builds to produce an energetic, party vibe.

However, it seems to fall flat from the initial build and the chorus leaves us feeling underwhelmed compared to that of the catchy verses.

The video, teamed with the song, show the three lads chasing a beautiful woman down the street to no avail, which is completely cliche. However, the lads ensure to show their personalities and the track fits the video perfectly with it’s R’n’B, urban feel.

Overall, this song is bound to achieve success and is easy on the ears, especially with the 80s vibe and has left us singing along with the track on repeat. We do, however, hope that the lads have some more tracks on their way with some of those incredible harmonies that featured during their time on the X Factor.

Watch the Street Love video below and let us know what you think!

M.A.D – ‘Shotgun’

With the boyband phenomenon still sweeping the country, there are many young, next generation boybands appearing, wishing to steal the hearts of the teenage population.

Here at Brumotions, we are always on the look out for new music to tell all of you about so you can feast your ears on it, which helped us discover M.A.D, who you can also catch appearing in this weeks Brumotions Playlist of the Week!

M.A.D. for it:  Band members Dan, Michael and Ben.

M.A.D, a trio made up of Dan Lewis from South Wales, Michael Sutthakorn from Northern Ireland and Ben ‘AB’ Pryer from London (Left to Right) – are back with their newest single ‘Shotgun’ after achieving incredible success in the Top 40 chart with their debut single ‘Toyboy’ and their second single ‘Fame & TV’, which were both released and achieved ONLINE!

Shotgun is bubblegum pop at its finest!

The track is likeable with a memorable and upbeat tune, which will leave a smile on your face and is perfect for a younger audience.

However, we can’t help but feel that the song is slightly repetitive and bland in comparison to other songs gracing the charts at the moment. We also notice their newest tune bares a close resemblance to ‘Angel with a Shotgun’ by The Cab.

With that being said, the band have boyish good looks, which combined with their inoffensive lyrics and energetic video with love declarations, leave many girls wishing they could ride shotgun with the band.

M.A.D have already amassed a large online following and are a group to watch out for this year! We are sure they will continue to grow as a band and produce a more mature sound that we are sure everyone will love (including us)!

Shotgun is out NOW! And can be purchased on ITunes!

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!
