Song: Yo Yo
Usually full of whimsy, Mika goes in a darker direction for this pop song. But it’s no less full of the energy, the vibrancy, the colourful textures that make Mika such an exciting and unique pop star. Of this undeniable banger Mika says: “I wanted to write a song that could make you cry and dance at the same time. A song to make the world, in all its harshness, feel better. Something that will always be there to comfort you. I wrote this for you, as you listen in your room, or in a club: it doesn’t matter it’s just about you.”

Song: Honest Light
Ken Yates explains his new enchanting new indie-folk single: “There’s a certain kind of light during “golden hour” when the sun comes through your window and suddenly everything looks different.
