When I clicked this song I was expecting it to be a ballad, and happily surprised to discover it's the complete opposite. Sometimes with Religious artists, the songs can come across as being quite preachy which is annoying. I don't know who wants to listen to a song that proclaims everything is wrong with your life until you join them in the Special Kingdom, but it's not me. So very thankful that whilst the lyrics do have the undertones of Religion in them, it's not the focal point and the songs enjoyable. Jordan Feliz is a Christian musician who plays folk rock/soul style of Christian pop.
Let's just get this out there: The Veronicas are supremely underated. I have been a fan of them since coming across Everything I'm Not. I'm not going to say every track they've ever recorded is my cup of tea, but a good 80% of it is. This song is a belter from beginning to end and has already had countless replays. It's not the greatest video you'll ever watch, but sometimes that doesn't matter when the songs as good as this. The Veronicas are an Australian pop/punk duo formed in 2005.
Being honest when the song first started playing, I had to double check to make sure I hadn't accidentally clicked a Halsey video and I've seen people comment similar. That aside the songs quite fun, albeit not exactly what I was expecting, so that's another happy surprise for this week. I absolutely adore the chorus for the guitar and look forward to listening to more stuff from this band. Against The Current (also known as ATC) are a Pop/Rock band from New York formed in 2011.
Alison Wonderland - Games:
We here at CONTROLRadioUK HQ do like this song and the song would've featured here, but I cannot put up with the video. Sorry but I'll still be giving the album a listen over.
Karmin - Sugar:
Everyone has heard of their song Brokenhearted. Some at CONTROLRadioUK HQ like it, I absolutely detest it due to the amount of times it was overplayed & it's turned me off the band. Shame because their other songs are quite good, but Sugar doesn't have enough of a hook to feature here.
Twenty One Pilots - Heathen:
I have no interest in the SS movie but I like these guys and this song is as great as expected. But it's a little too downbeat for some at CONTROLRadioUK HQ.
Sia - Cheap Thrills:
I like a majority of Sia's music and prefer the original version of this song along with the video accompanying it for the dancing. Whilst it's fun, you know who Sia is and this has been out for ages.
