Surprise, it’s a rock group! Having never heard of Pia before, I am most definitely pleased with their album ‘About My Spring’. With their rock meets Owl City title track, and their rock cover of Michael Jackson’s Beat It…I think Pia might become a new favourite.

PEPPERTONES – THANK YOU

Release date: March 20th

Click for track.

Now for something a little less fierce, but nonetheless still fantastic. Indie group Peppertones released their new track ‘Thank You’ on March 20th. Their album cover is appropriate, as the song conjures images of a campfire by the sea – an image I very much appreciate too!

 

INFINITE – NEW CHALLENGE

Release date – March 21st

Infinite

Click for YT playlist!

Dance machines Infinite have just made their highly anticipated comeback, bringing back their much missed retro beats and synchronised dancing. This time, they’ve upped the ante to win the hearts of their fans (not that they needed to), by featuring the world’s most adorable cat in their MV. I think I cried a little.

 

HONG JIN YOUNG – BOOGIE MAN

Release date: March 22nd

Hong Jin Young

Click for MV

Here to make trot music popular once more, is 27 year old Hong Jin Young with her catchy new song ‘Boogie Man’. With an MV, dance and lyrics similar to those characteristic of a K-pop hit, Hong Jin Young has given it a trot flair and has most definitely succeeded!

And that concludes the new releases of this week! This week has brought about a wide variety of styles and I can’t say I’m in the least disappointed about it. It’s great to see a step away from the constant stream same-y songs. Better yet, it wont be long now until artists start churning out summer hits, and I for one, am most excited about that! Whilst it’ll still be cold here in the UK, we’ll be able to listen to some songs that will lift our moods until the sun rears its head for the briefest of moments…

I hope you enjoyed the article, until next week 🙂
