New Music Mondays #51: Flight Path

It’s time to stop listening to Mariah Carey for 23 minutes and give eight new non-festive songs a listen. I’m currently running about getting last minute things ready so I’ll keep it brief, but please do listen to all of these excellent songs!

Cecily – Red Flags

Cecily is now three for three on excellent pop songs. This is the most relaxed of her debuts, but there’s click an claps, her voice is so distinctive and she’s still channeling that lullaby-quality to her tunes.

Best bit: the sing-song bridge

Dalton Harris – Cry

X-Factor winner from last year Dalton Harris has put out a smoky, vocally charged R&B number. It’s slick and he sounds incredible.

Best bit: His upper-ranged vocals

Dojo Cuts – You’re Unforgettable

Cheerful modern soul, think Duffy or Gabriella Cilmi. Infectious and charming.

Best bit: those soul-styled instrumentals

E^ST – FLIGHT PATH

E^ST yet again brings some light pop music with thoughtful lyrics and cool vocal layering. An excellent road trip song.

Best bit: when she turns it up for the chorus

kenzie – MOTIVES

A hardened pop tune. Method but satisfying.

Laura White – Nobody

Another X-Factor alum – Laura White who was kicked off the week Diana Vickers got her pass – and she sounds husky and vocally empowered on this big ballad.

Best bit: the grit in her voice

Olivia Roderigo – Out of the Old

Did you know there’s a Disney+ show about the fictional school from High School Musical staging their own production of High School Musical? Well this is from that and it’s everything you could hope.

Best bit: how triumphant it feels
