New Music Friday: Georgia doesn’t have much in terms of money...

The BriefingPosted on March 29, 2019March 29, 2019Peter Robinson The Song Of The Week is About Work The Dancefloor by Georgia. Georgia's 2018 single Started Out was a slowburn stormer that even­tu­ally found its way into the Radio 1 playlist; Work The Dancefloor somehow ramps up both the pop and the art at the same…

Stronger together: Europa, LSD, Silk City and the rise of mergepop

The BriefingPosted on March 29, 2019March 29, 2019Popjustice The only bad thing about March 29 not, after all, being the day the UK throws itself down the toilet is that Brexit doesn't now coincide with the launch of Europa, a col­laboramic superduo com­pris­ing Jax 'Jaxit Means Jaxit' Jones, who is from London, and noted Frenchperson…

Seriously though. THIS GEORGIA SONG

The BriefingPosted on March 29, 2019March 29, 2019Peter Robinson Yes I've already done it as Song Of The Week in the New Music Friday post but you have 100% got another thing coming if you think I'm not going to give About Work The Dancefloor a second post in its own right. What a song.…

Half a million views in half an hour

The BriefingPosted on April 4, 2019April 4, 2019Peter Robinson Not a bad start for the new BLACKPINK video. I suppose something would have to go very wrong indeed for a new BLACKPINK video not to explode imme­di­ately, con­sid­er­ing they're a) fairly popular and b) have form when it comes to watch­worthy videos. This is such…

It’s Marina’s Orange Trees video

The BriefingPosted on March 22, 2019Peter Robinson Did you know that by 1987, orange trees had become the most cul­tiv­ated fruit trees in the world? 25 years later, sweet oranges made up 70% of all citrus business.

New Music Friday: Dan off Bastille watches the world but all...

The BriefingPosted on April 26, 2019April 26, 2019Popjustice The Song Of The Week is Doom Days by Bastille. No dis­respect to the Good Grief hitmakers but it feels a bit strange to make Bastille Song Of The Week when Taylor Swift's got a single out. Still, here we are. Doom Days, a claus­tro­phobic love song…

The BriefingPosted on May 1, 2019May 1, 2019Peter Robinson If you've been following Popjustice's New Music Friday playlists over the last couple of years you'll have encountered a few releases by Antony & Cleopatra, the creative part­ner­ship between song­writer and producer Alexander Burnett and more excit­ingly (sorry Alexander) Anita Blay who, in her salad days,…

Appreciating the majesty of CXLOE’s slow-reveal bubblewrap coat

The BriefingPosted on May 10, 2019May 10, 2019Peter Robinson This, the new one from CXLOE, is how you do a lyric video. First step is to make sure you've got a song whose lyrics are good enough to justify writing them down, an important piece of due diligence most artists somehow miss. Second step, of…

New Music Friday: Cecily has been watching and waiting and pre-anticipating...

The BriefingPosted on May 10, 2019May 10, 2019Peter Robinson The Song Of The Week is Thinking Bout Me by Cecily. In a busy week for above-average releases, it's ambitious intro­spec­tion­banger Thinking Bout Me, the debut release from New Zealand's Cecily, that feels most like a superstar-has-landed moment. Cecily says she wrote the song at the…

Amazingly, a song called BFA (Best Friend’s Ass) isn’t very good

The BriefingPosted on May 10, 2019May 10, 2019Peter Robinson This week's least brilliant new song is BFA which, in news that will come as a surprise to the British Florist Association, stands for Best Friend's Ass. The song is an inex­cus­ably woeful attempt at viral pop by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, with Paris Hilton…
