July Jones Reveals New Single, ‘Switch It Off’

Currently in studio sessions with Girli and writing for Nasty Cherry, JULY JONES can now reveal her latest release, ‘Switch It Off’ out now.

The British-Slovene artist has also announced that she’ll be supporting GIRLI at her ‘Don’t call me a Ho Ho Ho Xmas Extravaganza’ at The Post Bar, London, this Sunday (15th December).

Speaking on the release, July says: “The single is about waking up from a one-night-stand and constantly thinking about the person you were with the night before. This is exactly what happened to my boyfriend and I, I became obsessed with fantasying about him to the point I couldn’t switch it (my mind) off.”

As a champion of all things LGBTQ+ and a fiercely independent artist with a rebellious streak, July aims to empower young women through her music and has talked openly about mental health issues in the past. Her previous single ‘Liar Liar’ saw tastemaker support from the likes of Notion, Gay Times & Hunger Magazine. July will also appear in the forthcoming Noctis Magaazine print edition.

With previous support shows for the likes of Shakka, Professor Green & Rita Ora – not forgetting performances at The Great Escape, Leeds, London, Manchester & Helsinki Pride – July Jones continues to step into her own space as a songwriter, singer, style influencer and sought after live performer.

Stay tuned for the official video for ‘Switch It Off’.

Natz Drops Brand New Single, ‘How You Make A Girl Feel’

Hailing from Wolverhampton Natalie Stewart – aka NATZ – is one of those singers/songwriters who has a knack for connecting with the prospective listener based on her life experiences.

Possessing a vibrant R&B vibe, her new single, ‘How You Make A Girl Feel’ displays one of her experiences; it paints a raw picture of the female perspective in a relationship, letting the male counterpart know that she’s in it for the long-haul and that she’s not messing around. Through the frank perspective, The UK newcomer carries warmth in her vocals performance.

Fairly new to the UK R&B scene, NATZ has quickly carved out a name for herself with tracks, ‘Getting Paid’ and ‘TICK TOCK’. Earlier this year, NATZ teamed up with DJ Corrupt for her biggest single to date, ‘It’s Not Okay’, which has generated over 320,000 streams on Spotify alone.

‘How You Make A Girl Feel’ is out now on all major download/streaming sites including iTunes.

Album Review: The Come Up – Dorian Thorson

DORIAN THORSON‘s debut album, ‘The Come Up’ encompasses all the stages of a relationship – from setting your eyes on the one for the first time to carrying heavy languages from a break-up.

A bed of airy soundscapes kicks off the album, through ‘Fallen’ and ‘Better’, joining the catchy urban b-line for a harmonious union where Thorson’s vocal performance oozes swagger on both productions.

The ten piece set shifts to afterhours mode through third offering ‘Flex’, boasting a sugary tranquil overtones coupled with that head-rolling b-line becoming more prominent. Further along the line, tracks such as ‘Forgive me’ and ‘Trust Issues’ possess a similar vibe but with a tag of toe-tingling trap/soul added to the drive.

Finishing off the album are ‘Luv U’, which continues the trip/soul vibe, picking up slight speed, and ‘Her’. The latter could be described as the odd ball of the album – and I mean that respectfully – as the piano centric production provides an intimate setting which encourages the prospective listener to really soak up the delicately heartfelt vocals provided by the man himself.

‘The Come Up’ is one of those albums that you can check in from five – or even ten years from now –  and still be pleasing to the ears. His debut offering should put him firmly on the one-to-watch radar for 2020.
