Mad excited for the On Your Radar tracks this week! To begin, we are loving the fresh sound coming from this unique pairing. Freya Ridings and MJ Cole wrote the song Waking Up in a single session and it's no surprise that it took Ridings just two vocal takes to nail it. Listen here to experience the raw beauty of this song; it has given us chills since we heard it.
It's hard to believe Mahalia has yet to put out her first studio album because this collaboration with Burna Boy sounds as accomplished as any of the greats. Even if we do say so ourselves. Mahalia has been performing since she was 13 years old so that might explain it... take a listen and see what you think yourself:
There's a stunning hopeful tone to this song by Mick Flannery; the strings, the pace, the voice had us hooked from the opening bars. Take a listen to the lead single Come Find Me taken from Mick Flannery's equally stunning self-titled new album out now.
