Staycation season may be in full swing, but we’ve still been busy here at KVH Studios keeping our services up to date with the very latest releases. And now it’s time for our Head of Music, Nick Bewes, to share some highlights from August. If you want to know what is happening throughout the month, follow us on Twitter @kvhstudiosmusic, and our New Music Spotify playlist here.
Our first track this month has received lots of praise. The Guardian said it was “an instant disco-pop masterpiece” and Consequence of Sound said the track ‘’is pulsing, almost dizzying in its dance-floor intensity from start to finish, leaving the listener appropriately breathless’’. We agree with all that and say Take My Breath by The Weeknd is a brilliant single.
From one of the biggest music stars on the planet to a brilliant newcomer. 20-year-old Ellur from Halifax, West Yorkshire and is one to watch. Her latest single Moments is wonderful, and we are very pleased to support her by playing her track on our services.
Katy B has been quiet for a few years, her last album Honey was released in 2016. Five years later, she has released a brand new single, Under My Skin, and it’s a prime slice of Katy B! It’s so good to have her back!
Clinton Kane might be a new name to some, but he’s been making waves on YouTube for a while now, recording covers from the likes of The Weeknd to James Arthur. Now it’s time to shine with his own music and his second official single I GUESS I’M IN LOVE is a beautiful track.
And finally this month, let’s try and hang onto that summer feeling for as long as possible as Silk Sonic provide the sunshine soundtrack with their second single, Skate. Taken from their debut album, which is due in January 2022, it’s another slice of 70’s influenced soul/funk. And we love it!
There you have it for another month. Until September…happy listening!
