The Music Week Playlist: February 11, 2019

Music Week’s guide to the most essential tracks of the moment…

BILLIE EILISH
Bury A Friend (Polydor)

Billie Eilish is about to release debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (March 29) , and the LA teen trails it with this freaky blend of bass and whispered half-melodies.

LIL BERETE & LOSKI
Go N Get It (New Gen)

Helmed by 169, the producer behind Dave and Fredo’s Funky Friday, Go N Get It unites two of rap’s freshest voices for a cold, hard collab that sticks in the mind.

BLACK MIDI
Speedway (Speedy Wunderground)

The Londoners’ last release before signing up with Rough Trade is a glorious jumble. Its rhythms turn inside out, expiring when it all gets too much.

CAGE THE ELEPHANT
Ready To Let Go (RCA)

The first taste of the Kentucky outfit’s upcoming LP Social Cues (April 19) has a flowery rock flavour, as if they made it in a garage filled with succulents.

NEW HOPE CLUB
Permission (Virgin EMI)

Look, it’s New Hope Club ascending towards pop ubiquity with chirpy harmonies and a chorus that will surely jolt the hands of their fans skywards.

KOFFEE
Throne (Columbia)

Following last year’s excellent Toast, Koff ee returns with another banger, her modern interpretation of reggae souped up on rocket fuel.

RAMZ
Hold You Down (Polydor)

If Barking taught us anything it’s that, for Ramz, a good melody equates to streaming catnip. The BRITs-nominated MC has hit on another juicy one here.
