We’re back with another Fresh Music Playlist, a curation of some of the best songs we’ve heard this week that we know you’re going to love. 

First up it’s Hollin Kings with 2020 single Hold On, a driving Rock and Roll track that has brought the Ohio rockers to our attention. Hollin Kings have such a classic, authentic sound, with heavy guitars, punchy drums and vocals that ride the instrumentals with ease, rasp and power. Their talent and musical prowess is evident, showing genuine skill, musicality and a rawness that much music has lost. Clean, driving and powerful, Hold On is the kind of single you’re desperate to see played loud and live on stage. 

Next up a track to slow it down and soundtrack a slow Sunday. Waves by Ellis Johnson is a soulful ballad from the Mancunian singer songwriter. Sultry and acoustic, Ellis’ vocals have a pure and easy tone that you want to hear on repeat. A track full of subtle passion and emotion Ellis Johnson has the potential to follow in the acoustic pop footsteps of stars such as Ed Sheeran and James Arthur. 

Our third addition is Lola Young’s smooth and soulful None For You. At just 19 years old Lola Young possesses immense talent in both vocal style, lyricism and spirit. Tipped to be next up in the UK scene it is not hard to see why. The track is full of attitude, presented in the smoothest of manners with Lola’s luscious vocals sitting over smooth piano chords. Lola Young’s potential is palpable.

Shanay Shah’s You Found Me is the next feature on our Fresh Music playlist. Shanay is talent hailing from Mumbai, a multilingual talent who brings a truly refreshing sound to the pop genre.
