FRANZ FERDINAND / ALWAYS ASCENDING

In 2013, indie juggernauts Franz Ferdinand released what became for many, or at least myself, the album of the year with ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action’. They rewrote the rule book on indie pop music and managed to create an album that had wall to wall brilliance as each track stood out as lead…

SMERZ / HALF LIFE

It was at this years Lost Village festival that we discovered the wonder of Smerz. We were lucky enough to catch them live (you can find the exclusive gig review here) and fell in love with their minimal yet exciting electro flavour. Following the performance, we got a hold of their 2016 album ‘Okey’ which is…

FOO FIGHTERS / RUN

As if out of nowhere, just like that, with no premeditation, self indulgent hype or endless teasers and promos, one of the biggest bands in the world have returned to release new music for the first time since 2015 and all in perfect time as they embark soon on a summer full of festivals, plus the song…

LCD SOUNDSYSTEM / CALL THE POLICE

The music world was buzzing all last night as news broke yesterday that two brand new tracks by the returning LCD Soundsystem and James Murphy had announced that the new material would sweep the globe gradually and the news of this imminent event did just the same. Every music publication and radio station in the…

NIALL HORAN / SLOW HANDS

“We spiiiiiiiiiiiies, we slow hands, put the weights around yourself”. Nope, it’s not the classic Interpol track, it’s actually another brand new release by a One Direction alumni and it’s Irish chappy Niall Horan as he’s unveiled brand new single ‘Slow Hands’ and not to say there’s any rivalry between the ex One Direction lads,…

MOJO20’S FAVOURITE / IGGY POP

Yesterday marked the 70th birthday of punk rock legend Iggy Pop and despite wishing him all the best over social media, we at Mojo20 decided it was only right that we take the time out to do as we often do and look back at our favourite works by a man so ahead of his time…

POND / SWEEP ME OFF MY FEET

As with our reports last night of new music by Mr Jukes, we’re more than a couple of days late to the party here as well. But as we mentioned in that review, it’s impossible to ignore a release like this and it deserves all of our attention. This recent single release by Australian super…

MR. JUKES / TEARS FEAT. ALEXANDRIA

It’s been a couple of weeks since Mojo20 first heard that any of this was a thing, and I can only apologise for the tardiness of the review, but it couldn’t be ignored and had to be explored eventually. As absolutely huge fans of Bombay Bicycle Club, solo material comes as a second place to…

PARAMORE / HARD TIMES

That’s the funny thing about music, it’s entirely subjective. What one person loves, another hates, and exciting and important news for one can be pointless, useless information for another. With that in mind, US pop punk darlings Paramore are back, with brand new track ‘Hard Times’ and the world seems to have gone a bit…

ROYAL BLOOD / LIGHTS OUT

Last night on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show on Apple music, Royal Blood finally unveiled brand new music for the first time since their debut album in 2014. ‘Lights Out’ is their first track since then and it’s a welcome return for the Brighton duo that took over the music scene three years ago. Everyone has…

HARRY STYLES / SIGN OF THE TIMES

So we may be a little, tiny behind on the times, considering that this single has been out for around a week and is already, and without surprise it’s reached number one of the official UK trending chart, but there was no way we could bypass it, and not mention it at all. When the…

RAG’N’BONE MAN / SKIN

One of the UK’s most exciting and popular new artists known as Rag’N’Bone Man, has followed up his debut single ‘Human’ with a brand new track called ‘Skin’ and it looks like it may just aid his meteoric rise and continue to elevate his popularity. Featuring soulful and gospel-esque sounds, even more so than his previous…
