Kiesza

A brand new artist with an incredible first single – meet Kiesza.

The revitalised Virgin Records in the UK is having an incredible run of brilliant dance tracks at the moment and Hideaway is the latest. Virgin have a #1 this week with My Love and this is sure to give them another when it comes out in April 12 as it’s already Shazam #1!

Kiesza is a trained ballerina – hence the ability to dance like a beast in this wicked one shot video. She’s Canadian but moved to London mid-January. Bring on the fun!

If I Could Change Your Mind

I’m seeing Haim tomorrow night at Brixton Academy and am so excited. Their debut album fast became my favourite from 2013 and their last London show at The Forum was pretty spectactular. Interestingly the crowd was very 30 something couples, not the Radio 1 audience I’d have originally predicted.

Anyway, despite it not being best song on the album ‘Days Are Gone’, their next single ‘If I Could Change Your Mind’ is a joy, thanks in no small party to the totally jubilant video. Their videos have always had a sense of fun, and US teen movie to them, but this one puts the girls themselves central with a dance routine choregraphed by Aaliyah’s team. Amazing.
