This Week In New Music: Troye Sivan, The Neighbourhood & The Academic

It’s a good week for new music. Pop diva Camila Cabello released her debut album (you’ll be hearing it all over the airwaves for the next few months), Jade Bird gave us another belter with ‘Lottery’ and Luke Sital-Singh gave us the beautiful ‘Just A Song Before I Go’ EP. Here are some of my picks of the crop this week;

My My My! – Troye Sivan (Single)

Everyone’s favourite LGBTQ+ babe is back and fuck (excuse my french) it’s good. It’s fun and sexy and the hook is delicious. Speaking about the track Troye said it was a call to “throw all inhibition to the wind, be present in your body, love wholeheartedly, move the way you’ve always wanted to, and dance the way you feel – hopefully even to this song!”


To Imagine – The Neighbourhood (EP)

Nothing exceptional here, but still something I can see myself listening to a lot. On the first couple of listens, it isn’t as strong as their recent Hard EP, but Jesse Rutherford’s vocals are smooth as ever, there’s some nice synth stuff and bass in there, and it’s a nice, easy listening experience.


Tales From The Backseat – The Academic (Album)

I included these lads on my “3 Albums To Look Out For This Month” list for January, and the album did not disappoint. ‘Fake ID’ will have you laughing and nostalgic for underage nights on the town, you’ll be singing along and dancing around your room to ‘Bite My Tongue,’ and if you’ve been a fan of The Academic for a while you might even get a little emotional at the studio version of ‘Girlfriends.’ I can’t wait to hear all these tracks at Iveagh Gardens in summer, this is an album for sunny days, friends and a bag of cans 😉
