Gabrielle Aplin 2019

It's been a number of years since we first featured Gabrielle Aplin, who joined forces with BASTILLE to deliver a cover of 'Dreams' by Fleetwood Mac on the 2012 mixtape 'Other People's Heartache Pt 2'. She went onto mainstream success soon after, with a No.1 UK single and two successful albums, driven by a stripped-back folk-led sound. So the Taylor Swift-esque 'Nothing Really Matters' comes as something of a surprise. An infectious pop surprise.

Almost out of nowhere, Norway's finest proponents of orchestral pop Team Me returned in early 2019 with an expanded line-up and a new track, 'Blurry Precise', their first material since disbanding in 2015. They've been welcomed back with open arms on previous label, the excellent Propeller Recordings, and understandably so. Seemingly back to their very best, albeit with a twist, as shown on the more electronic-led 'The Future In Your Eyes'.

It seems that every week, a new shake-up emerges in terms of cinematic release mechanisms and 'Guava Island' is this week's pioneering film. Conceived by creative polymath Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) and his 'Atlanta'-directing collaborator Hiro Murai, musical drama 'Guava Island' premiered at this weekend's Coachella Festival in the States before landing on Amazon Prime - and better yet, is available to watch for free for all users for a (very) limited time.

We're not quite sure what Chris De Burgh thinks of new Irish musical outfit KRISDEBERG but we're hoping he views it as flattery. Perhaps De Burgh is in fact somehow involved with his namesake counterparts, although that would be quite the revelation. Check out the first offerings from these ones to watch below.
