Kyla La Grange releases sad and sensual new single
Kyla La Grange is on a roll! The British singer-songwriter came back swinging a few months ago with the brilliantly poppy single ‘So Sweet’ and now it is time to launch another brand new track called ‘Skin’. The singer, who experienced her most successful moment so far with the Kygo remix of her single ‘Cuth Your Teeth’, takes things down a notch this time with a sensitive, but at the same time sensual, rather dark anthem about seeing the love of her life with another girl. Oh, the feels!

Ellie Goulding finally sounds a bit like Ellie Goulding on new single ‘Army’
As we all know, Ellie Goulding is about to drop a new album, called Delirium, next week. The British singer-songwriter started a campaign for which she released a new song every week until the album release. This week, the new track is ‘Army’, not really a promo single, but actually the second official single taken from the record. Frequent readers of this blog might have already realized that I am not a big fan of this new era for Ellie. ‘On My Mind’ was just a tuneless mess if you ask me that didn’t even come close to the standard Ellie produced before and ‘Something In The Way You Move’ was nice enough, but could also have been recorded by Carly Rae Jepsen or any other pop singer. After the release of the not really single worthy ‘Lost & Found’ last week she is now back with ‘Army’ that finally sounds like actual Ellie Goulding!
