Unless you’ve been living under a rock then you’ll be aware (and hopefully enjoying the fact that) our old GB is currently experiencing a magnificently impressive heatwave!
Whether you’re spending these lovely days rolling round in the grass, experiencing serious chafe or simply having a very sweaty journey to work, a summery soundtrack is always essential, and us ladies at Her Music Pr are here to help.
Here are three albums that we’re loving listening to so far this summer.
First up’s London lady Jorja Smith. Soulful in every way, we can’t stop listening to this magical woman’s recently released album ‘Lost and Found’. Mixing both elegance and an enormous amount of raw emotion, Jorja’s debut album is full of character. Gentle in tone and accompanied effortlessly throughout by catchy pop hooks, her husky and at times nasal vocals elevate her songs to a level beyond and above what’s been previously expected of this R&B Prodigy.
Favourites include: ‘Blue Lights’ ‘Don’t Watch Me Cry’ ‘Where Did I Go’
If you haven’t yet listened to Sixteen Records Vol. 1 Album, then we cannot stress how well it accompanies this British Summertime. Founded by producer Lotte van den Berg, Sixteen Records is a brand new Leeds Based record label focussing on Alternative and Electronic artists, and we love it! Beautifully executed and with a seriously good handful of new talent from the musical hub that is the north, we can’t see anything stopping these guys becoming big players in the Leeds Music Scene. Favourites include : Ryan Hawkins (Cinnamon) , Hannah Slavin (U&I), Joule (Unmade Fire)
Unknown Mortal Orchestra, how do we even begin? Creating what could be our FAVE this summer the New Zealand based band bring us their fourth studio album ‘Sex and Food’. Oozing with sensuality and summer vibes you can almost taste they’re so good, we simply cannot stop listening to this. It’s as though you discover more about each song every time you listen to it, as they gradually unravel beautifully from their intricately and cleverly woven structures yet still remain so SO easy to listen to. Perfect for listening to on any occasion, this album ticks all of our boxes.
Favourites include: ‘Hunnybee’ ‘Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays’ and ‘American Guilt’
