Pete's Pop Picks

Justin Garner - Lights Go Down
From a tiny town in Louisiana this weeks Pete's Pop Pick is the talented Justin Garner. Tragically losing his Father at a young age, Justin has followed his footsteps into music and has now been recognised by Amazon as a rising artist! Despite being unsigned it's not stopped Justin perusing his passion and his debut album I Am comes out today! Lights Go Down is the lead single from his album and you'd expect someone like Chris Brown to come out with a track like this! If you love Pop/R&B/Dance you'll love Lights Go Down..!

First Aid Kit - Emmylou
Before you read on any further, press play below. Go on. You need to listen to Emmylou before we tell you a bit about First Aid Kit. Pressed it yet? Good. Now, as you're listening, where do you think these two girls are from? Nashville? Texas? Guess again. From the same country who's brought you acts like Agnes, Abba & Roxette, First Aid Kit hail from Sweden! We were a bit shocked when we found out but if you're a fan of a smooth groove, beautiful harmonies and an Angus & Julia Stone style vibe, you'll love First Aid Kit..!

Imagine Dragons - It's Time
Released several months ago but now starting to make waves is the new single from Las Vegas based group Imagine Dragons. Called It's Time, this track is a beautiful contradiction of strength and subtlety in the power of the vocals contrasted against the folkish guitar work. This group of four have learned how to be a band the old fashioned way, by writing great songs and playing them live to an increasingly large audience. Have a listen to It's Time by Imagine Dragons here now..!
