Music Week Playlist: June 12, 2017

Perfect Places,
Virgin EMI

Melodrama finally drops this week, and this lush, sweeping third single sets it up nicely. There’s some mega synth work near the end, too.

Contact Louise Mayne

Arcade Fire

Everything Now,

Who’s up for a jaunty introduction to Win Butler and the gang’s new album, then? Space-age keyboards and a groovy bassline make it fly.

Contact Brídín Murphy Mitchell

Liam Gallagher

Wall Of Glass,
Warner Bros

Isn’t it strange that, in this office at least, the King Of Parkas’ new single already feels like a classic? We’re sure you’ve played it 250 times too…

Contact Andy Prevezer


Sacred Bones

The Austin foursome are excellent at writing dirty post-punk songs. This one is from their new album, Subordination, out now.

Contact Chris Hansell

Low Island

Rest Your Head,
Kobalt Music

Like Radiohead, Foals and Glass Animals, Low Island are a brainy band from the Oxford area. This new single tips its cap to Arthur Russell.

Contact Laura Martin

Major Lazer
Know No Better,
Mad Decent

Featuring Travis Scott, Quavo and Camila Cabello, this is made for inebriated dancing, ideally on some decking on a Mediterranean island.

Contact James Cunningham

Xam Volo

Old Soul,
Universal Music

The search for Liverpool’s most chilled out entertainer is officially over. Jazz, soul and a flash of R&B combine for a tune that’s possibly too relaxing.

Contact Julie Smith
