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!

OneRepublic – ‘Love Runs Out’

love runs out

American pop-rock band OneRepublic are back with their incredible new track ‘Love Runs Out’, which will be released in the UK on August 3rd.

The track was originally intended to be the first single on the group’s third album Native, but the release was delayed due to the track not having a chorus written. But the wait has been worth it as the track is incredible and released just in time for the Summer!

If you’ve been keeping up to date with our amazing Playlists of the Week, you would’ve seen this incredible track included in a Playlist back in June!

‘Love Runs Out’ is completely different to the incredible tracks that this chart-topping group have released before and yet it’s just as incredible and catchy as those tracks that we’re sure we’ll be blasting it for a while.

The track’s pace reminds us heavily of Kanye West’s track Love Lockdown, however, singer Ryan Tedder brings a touch of uniqueness with his incredible vocals, which makes this track a touch more addictive to listen to it on repeat!

The tune has a minimalistic, 70s rock and soul vibe driving the track with Tedder showcasing the vocal acrobatics that have made the group a popular household name.

‘Love Runs Out’ is the perfect track for OneRepublic to debut a new sound to their audience as it will no doubt be successful!

The group are incredibly talented and we believe they will reach great success with their newest track and we wish them all the best!

‘Love Runs Out’ is available for pre-order and is out August 3rd!

MKTO – ‘Classic’

American duo Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller, who together form the group MKTO are FINALLY joining the UK music scene with their amazing track ‘Classic’, which was released here in the UK on June 29th.

The track has been released in a number of countries, including the US over a year ago, but it’s finally popped across the pond after a year and it was well worth the wait!

However, if you’ve been keeping up with our Brumotions Playlist of the Week, this incredibly catchy pop track has featured in our playlist on two separate occasions!

Classic is an amazing, party, pop track with a great beat that is enjoyable to listen to and certainly to sing along to.

Although the lyrics are considerably cheesy, the message stands out among the majority of the tracks that are currently taking over the UK charts.

The lyrics present a feel-good factor for all the ladies (including those here at Brumotions!) as the two handsome lads that make up the group are telling them they’re one of a kind in this era and they’re ‘classic’ ladies, like Marilyn Monroe and that they will treat them like such: “Ima pick you up in a Cadillac, like a gentleman, bringing glamour back. Keep it real, real in the way I feel. I could walk you down the aisle.”

‘Classic’ is the PERFECT debut track that MKTO could have chosen to introduce themselves to a UK audience and we have no doubt that this talent showcasing tune will be entering the UK chart fairly soon and we wish the lads all the best!

MKTO is an incredible, young and fresh group who we believe will have a great career both in the US and here in the UK!

Classic is available NOW!

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.

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!

One Direction – ‘You & I’

Popular (and one of our favourite boybands), British-Irish boyband One Direction have released their new single, the incredible ‘You & I’ which features on their third studio album Midnight Memories with great success already!

One Direction, who were put together during their time on the X-Factor, consisting of Harry, Liam, Zayn, Louis and Niall (though we’d be surprised if you didn’t know this already!) released the track as their fourth single from the album on May 25th.

You & I is an amazing and elegant power ballad by the group, which has received an amazing response from the lads’ millions of fans from across the world (including the video which shows the boys looking just as incredible).

In an interview on Good Morning Britain, Harry said “You & I is a love song. It’s saying that you’re inseparable or nothing can get in the way of you and your love.”

The lyrics perfectly showcase the incredible vocal abilities from all five of the boys and show their defiance in the subject of love in the lyrics: “You and I, we don’t wanna be like them. We can make it ’til the end, nothing can come between You & I.”

One-Direction-1D-You-And-I

You & I already raced up the charts back when the lads released their third album Midnight Memories and we expect the boys to return to the charts fairly quickly with this incredible track.

One Direction remain as one of the biggest groups in the world with a load of top 10 singles under their belt!

And we can’t wait to see what the lads’ fourth studio album has to showcase to the world who are waiting patiently!

You & I is out NOW!

Neon Jungle – ‘Welcome to the Jungle’

After taking over the UK and US with their singles Trouble and Braveheart, British girlband Neon Jungle are back with their third single, Welcome to the Jungle.

Made up of Shereen, Asami, Jessica and Amira, these girls are definitely one’s to watch out for as their sassy, electro-pop tunes are catchy, and memorable and you can dance to them all night long!

Although we love the single and we have no doubt it will be trapped in our heads for days to come, we were slightly disappointed in the lack of breakdown during the chorus.

The catchy track’s beat grows throughout the song, hinting towards a great breakdown during the chorus, but instead the flow is completely cut off and remains very simplistic before repeating itself.

What would have made a great electro-pop song – played in numerous clubs worldwide, with incredible vocals, which people are able to pin to the quartet instantly – was cut when the beat dropped to the simplistic and simply boring beat.

With the girls taking turns to show off their vocal ability through the song and even including a rap, we can’t help but dance along to the record as the ladies belt out the lyrics: “Boy, can you make me growl/With the wild things on the prowl/Welcome to the jungle”.

We have no doubt that the single will be trapped in your head for weeks to come.

Neon Jungle are definitely a group to look out for with great vocal talent and the ability to release good tracks!

Get Welcome to the Jungle NOW!
