Pete's Pop Picks..!

He's back , its the return of PPP..!

Woohoo, it good to be back & Happy New Year..! It's been a while since the last Pete's Pop Picks but i've been waiting till I had some great pop tracks to bring you... and here they are..!

Devlin - Rewind Feat. Diane Birch
Back in 2009 I took in the amazing sights and sounds of the captivating Japan. Tokyo was a mind blower and a trip to the massive Virgin Megastore was a must. I killed several hours looking around finding some music i'd never heard of before. One of those albums I found was the brilliant Bible Belt from Michigan native Diane Birch. This album captivated me from the first listen and still does to this day. Seems 23 year old UK rapper Devlin has thought the same, using her gorgeous track Rewind as the basis for his new single,  appropriately also called Rewind

I would never have thought that this track I knew so well, would transfer to rap so easily but it does. Similar in style to Eminem's Stan, Rewind is a triumph of a crossover song and i'm very proud that it's my first top Pete's Pop Pick for 2013.  If you want an amazing pop album get Bible Belt and as a topping, add in a good dose of Devlin - you won't regret it..!

Tone Dami - Smash
We've featured Norwegian Tone Damli before on SCP with her brilliant pop track Imagine with hottie Eric Saade but I had the feeling we may not hear from her again. I was wrong. The gorgeous Tone has now dropped another pop gem on us with Smash! This track is everything we love about Pop - upbeat & fun with a great melody and soft & sweet vocals. No video for Smash yet but we'll bring it to you as soon as it drops. A brilliant song you need in your Pop collection..!

Jake Bugg - Lightning Bolt
Another artist touched by SCP before, we're still loving Jake Bugg's last single Two Fingers and we're big fans of the Beatles-esque style he's brought back to British pop. Lightning Bolt is the new single from his self titled debut album that we love here at SCP. This 18 year old really knows what he's doing and it's reflected in the maturity and musicality of his album. Lightning Bolt is racing up the British charts at the moment and it won't be long before he's recognised world wide. You'll love Jake Bugg as much as we do i'm sure - check out Lightning Bolt here now..!
