Luke Friend – Hole in My Heart

After appearing on The X Factor in 2013, supporting The Vamps on tour and working on new material, Luke Friend is FINALLY back with his new single Hole in My Heart, which will be released in the UK on Sunday 29th March and can be pre-ordered NOW!

The track has elements of a nursery rhyme feel with its simplistic tune, however the raspy vocals and trademark tone of Luke’s voice provides a dynamic and exciting track with pure emotion which flows perfectly from start to finish.

The video shows Luke wondering the streets after his love interest and shots of him performing the track with his guitar.

Hole in My Heart is the perfect track to debut Luke’s sound and will no doubt be successful and is our Brumotions pick of the week.

Friend also embarks on a six-date tour on April 18 in Totnes, ending in London on the 23rd.

Check out his debut track below and let us know what you think!

Rixton – ‘Me and My Broken Heart’

Everyone LOVES a good boyband right?

Here at Brumotions, we have been trawling the internet to find some of the best new offerings in the boyband stakes and we rediscovered a band who have been on our radar for a few years – Rixton.

The band made up of Jake Roche – Singer and Rhythm Guitarist, Danny Wilkin – Bass/Keys & Backing Vocals, Charley Bagnall – Lead Guitarist & Backing Vocals and Lewi Morgan – Drums, burst onto the music scene with catchy pop song ‘Make Out’ last year and are back with their debut single said to make a splash both in the UK and The States ‘Me And My Broken Heart’ released July 13th.

The band have gained a large online following through covers of pop songs such as Taylor Swift’s – ‘Trouble’ and Chris Brown’s – ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ which helped them get noticed and signed by Scooter Braun who has worked with the likes of Justin Bieber, Cody Simpson and one of our favourite boybands, The Wanted.

Me and My Broken Heart is a great, easy listening, pop tune which leaves you singing along for hours to come and it’s refreshing to hear that Rixton play their own instruments, meaning they are definitely ones to watch out for with more than just vocal talent.
The video is a good addition to the song telling the story of the bands plight to win the girl, but the boys are quickly caught up in a con, alongside a number of clips from an energetic, live performance.

However, after leaving the UK and focusing their musical efforts in the USA, we Brumoters can’t help but think ‘who are Rixton’ and what makes them different… we would like to see them live and maybe find out more!

Check out the track below and let us know what you think!

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!

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.”

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!
