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.

OneRepublic – ‘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!

And if you haven’t already, make sure to check their video for the track out below:

Richard Rawson ft Tom Parker – ‘Fireflies’

After the disbanding of N-Dubz and an eye opening life style change – Fazer aka Richard Rawson is back with his debut solo single – Fireflies, under his own name, producing the music he always wanted to make.

Rawson’s rap is insightful, personal and alongside the melodic piano undertones gives us a look into the stars past; the highs and the lows, whilst likening his journey to that of a firefly, which leaves you wanting to keep listening to find out more.

“I swear I’m like a firefly,
I require darkness in order to shine”

Fireflies has an extremely catchy and memorable chorus which is sang by ex- The Wanted hottie Tom Parker and is his first solo appearance after the band announced an extended hiatus earlier in the year.

“As I stare across the sky
I see nothing but a million fireflies
reminding me that I can make my light shine
it’s not over, over, over”

Tom’s strong vocals bring something that little bit different and exciting to the song, especially as it’s not a collaboration we would have naturally expected, where Tom’s AD-Lib (Improvisation for those who aren’t musically tech-savvy) near the end of the track leaves the audience on a high.

The video is a great addition, showing the light and shade in the song compared to the feelings of the artist and is perfectly executed to portray the strong message of the song.

Fireflies showcases both artistes versatile, solo talents and is a great track that us Brumoters Love!

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!
