As we approach the end of another month at KVH Studios, Head of Music Nick Bewes looks back at some of the new music that we have added in February to our in-store music services.
Let’s be honest, the only place to start our review of music in February is with Eilish, Billie Eilish. She released the theme song from the new Bond movie, No Time to Die. After 90,000 equivalent chart sales in its first week, including 10.6 million streams. It became only the second 007 song to go to Number One, in the UK Charts.
Elsewhere, Noel Gallagher continued having fun with new music, since leaving Oasis. He has produced some great tunes with his High Flying Birds band.
The first couple of albums were very much what you would expect, but with his last album, Who Built the Moon, he began experimenting with different styles of music with the help of legendary producer David Holmes. In 2019, he began releasing EPs which continue with the adventurous theme with the latest called Blue Moon Rising.
Dua Lipa is gearing for the release of her second album, Future Nostalgia, with Physical being another perfect pop song. If the first three songs from the album are anything to go by, the new album is going to be a cracker.
As well as playing the big acts, we love supporting new talent here at KVH Studios. And this month, we are pleased to give exposure to Leeds artist Sfven. His latest single Flower Beds is a great song, it deserves to be heard by many more people. One to watch this year.
And finally, this week we added the fabulous new track from Shaun Escoffery called River. It’s a big catchy pop song with an even bigger chorus. It’s taken from new album Strong Enough which is out in April on Decca Records. This is the first time that a massively talented singer that we have been supporting since 2014, has been on a major label.
