Amber Run continued to impress (and melt) me with their recent single Just My Soul Responding. The UK band has proven themselves quite the stadium ready act with their cinematic, soaring music, and I can picture huge crowds going wild with emotion to this new one. Songs like this are also perfect for pairing with plot heavy music videos, and that’s exactly what they did with their new music video. Just My Soul Responding will be out January 19 via RCA Victor. Amber Run recently announced a UK headline tour for February.

LYRIC VID: U2 – Ordinary Love

November 22, 2013

In case you missed this earlier today, I’ll give you a hand, buddy. The great U2 released a lyric video for their much anticipated new tune Ordinary Love, which is on the soundtrack of the film Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. We heard a little preview of the tune in the film’s trailer beforehand, but here’s the full track. It’s a great song with some very satisfying guitars later in the track. I can’t help but wonder if I’m the only one who feels like there’s an increased similarity to some of Coldplay’s recent music (though, of course, Coldplay has always been compared to U2 and are considered the newer U2 by some). Ordinary Love leans closer to pop than rock for U2. But I definitely dig it.

The Killers – Just Another Girl

November 5, 2013

We’ve heard The Killers’ collaboration with M83, Shot At The Night. The dream pop/rock blending track is off The Killers greatest hits album Direct Hits, out on November 11. They previously announced there’d be two new songs on the release. Check out the second one below, courtesy of VH1. Just Another Girl is a melancholic, heartland arena rock track very typical of The Killers’ signature sound. Ah, that romantic Brandon Flowers, singing about unrequited love yet again… sigh.
