10 Songs You Need To Hear This Week: Dua Lipa, MØ, AlunaGeorge And More

Written By Sam Murphy on 09/07/2018

10. Dua Lipa – Want To

Dua Lipa has given us two tracks this week off her Super Deluxe Edition version of her debut record. Want To is a track she’s been playing live for ages now but she’s finally given us the suave cut in its recorded glory.

9. AlunaGeorge – Super Emotion

AlunaGeorge are back with their first solo song this year and it’s a rare slow-burner for them. They’ve recruited up-and-comer Cautious Clay for the blurry track that floats along on a bed of daydreaming synths and wafting vocals.

8. Octavian – Revenge

Octavian is shaking up the UK rap scene with some of the most instantly striking and different songs of the past few years. He’s releasing his Spaceman mixtape on 10th September and the icy Revenge is taken from that.

7. Amber Mark – Put You On (Feat. DRAM)

Amber Mark is the classiest songwriter out there right now and she’s served us another streamlined, funky cut, this time recruiting DRAM to help out. It’s not in your face, rather choosing to subtly make its way under your skin and it succeeds.

6. Robinson – Medicine

Robinson continues her ascent to the top of the pop pyramid with another A+ single Medicine. It’s a track perfect for the resolution of a big movie or big sing-alongs in large venues that she’ll inevitably end up in.

5. GRAACE – Last Night

Aussie up-and-comer GRAACE has followed up her flirtatious debut Kissing Boys with a much more mournful offering. Last Night is a slow-burner that hits you right in the feels.

4. MØ – Way Down

is gearing up for the release of her second album Forever Neverland and this is the third track we’ve heard from it. It’s a quintessential MØ track with that flawless bridge and electrifying drop.

3. Swick – Decisions (Feat. Kota Banks)

Swick and Kota Banks continue to prove themselves as the SOPHIE and Charli XCX of Australia with another A-grade future pop song. This time it’s Swick taking headline duties, marrying his plasticine beats with Banks’ charismatic, perky vocals.

2. Dawn Richard – jealousy

Dawn Richard has gone back to her New Orleans roots on one of her most straight-forward R&B cuts in ages. It’s a soulful, effortless release that revolves around the strength of Richard’s voice.

1. Silk City – Electricity (Feat. Dua Lipa)

Electricity has been teased for months but it seems it was worth the wait. It’s been a huge year for Dua Lipa but this is a standout. It’s a mighty house track that floats on a cloud of euphoria that will surely take it to the top of the charts.
