RGM RECOMMENDS – THE BEST TOP 5 LATEST SINGLES

DANIEL MCGUINNESS – MAKE TODAY YOUR HOME

Daniel McGuinness has skyrocketed to stardom with his consistent airplay on regional radio stations, including the prestigious BBC Introducing. Not only that, but he has also proven his incredible talent by being a two-time finalist in the renowned UK Songwriting Contest.

Now, the vocal prowess McGuinness holds is nothing short of extraordinary. It flows with such grace and elegance, perfectly harmonizing with the instrumental. Brace yourself, because when you listen to his masterpiece, “Make Today Your Home,” you’ll be transported to a world where emotions run deep. McGuinness’s raw and vulnerable vocals are like a gentle caress to your soul, and they blend seamlessly with the soft acoustic guitar.

I think that the track is very easy to listen to because it is very simple. There are no over-compressed vocals or heavily distorted instruments, which feels like a breath of fresh air in the music industry today.

This melancholic folk-pop track is a true testament to his artistic prowess and his ability to weave a passionate story through his music. Trust me, it’s an experience that will leave an indelible mark on your heart and mind.

SMALLPRINT – IT TAKES TWO TO PLAY

Since dropping their debut single, Smallprint has been gaining major recognition for their incredible success. Their small yet ever-expanding collection of tunes has quickly caught the attention of renowned bands like Twisted Wheel & Little Man Tate, who have invited Smallprint to join them on their highly anticipated come-back tours.

Fast forward to December 15th, 2023, when Smallprint unleashed their third studio single, “It Takes Two To Play.” This jam kicks off with some stripped-back verses and gradually builds up to an epic chorus, complete with killer lead guitar riffs that’ll transport you straight back to the early 2000s. And just when you think it can’t get any more intense, the music cranks up even higher towards the end of the track.

With their impressive track record and undeniable talent, Smallprint is quickly becoming everyone’s new favourite band, taking the music scene by storm.

FULL BILLY – LOVE IS DEAD

Full Billy has a very polished modern rock sound. However, they still manage to impressively preserve the classic Alt-Rock components in their new song Love Is Dead; by showcasing their drummer’s impeccable skill with the resounding thump of the kick drum, and never-ending hi-hat fills.

Throughout the first verse, the track feels quite spacey, with just the drums being played; until it progresses into the pre-chorus where the gritty guitar lead is introduced. Full Billy has incorporated some classic Brit Pop characteristics that we all know and love such as the fast tempo, as well as the clean resounding bass guitar.

In this intense track, the lyrics are tremendously relatable to listeners; it gives an insight into the pain of falling in love with someone but the feeling almost instantly is drained, it all falls apart and then the Love Is Dead.

It’s beyond question that Full Billy has gifted us another one of their renowned Brit-Pop tunes.

Featuring a juxtaposition of smooth melodies and powerful, unforgettable beats; Chatfield expertly employs punchy drums, a pulsating synthesiser and lively guitar riffs that dominate the track, to create a bright and engaging experience that complements the simplicity of the lyrics.

The high-intensity instrumental paired with the raw vocals singing the simplistic lyrics, makes a very catchy, early 2010’s indie vibe to it. It is a very promising single from the Sheffield lads.

MIDNIGHT GALLERY – UNKNOWN

The brand new single: Unknown by Manchester-born Post-Punk band: Midnight Gallery. Within this hazy & and dream-like track is an intricate mix of heavily distorted bass accompanied by fuzzy guitars, which are beautifully processed under the euphonious vocals delivered by the frontman.

Considering that the band haven’t released their debut EP yet, this track gives an insight into what they can release, making fans and myself very intrigued as to what is to come. I can imagine older fans of Punk enjoying this one, and it is a bit of a throwback for them as it feels as if it’s right out of the 1980s, but a little more modernised.
