AWAY FRM U (OBERHOFER) – S.O.T.W. – REVIEW (72%)

Away frm U by Oberhofer is this weeks free single of the week.

This song is a good release from iTunes.

Apple has this marked as an alternative track.

The music track has your usual guitar and drum backing track with soft and heavy moments, which manages to stand out a little at times with some unusual moment, although I am not sure at the strange human barking at the start.

The song is well sung by the male singer, the lyrics are clear and generally well sung.

Overall, this is good track, it is a mix between the artic monkeys and bands like O.M.D. from the 80’s. I feel it will appeal to some people, it is not for me, but I did enjoy parts of the song.

ON YOUR OWN (WE ARE THE IN CROWD) – S.O.T.W. – REVIEW (72%)

On Your Own by We Are The In Crowd is this weeks free single of the week.

This song is a good release from iTunes.

Apple has this marked as an alternative track.

The music track is your usual guitar and drum backing track with soft and heavy moments, with things that really stands out.

The song is well sung by the female singer, her lyrics are clear and generally well sung. There is a male backing singer whos voice is OK.

Overall, this is good track, it reminds me a little of an Avril Lavigne or Paramore track with a strong female singer. There was just nothing that really grabbed me about the song.

HOLD ON (ALABAMA SHAKES) – S.O.T.W. – REVIEW (62%)

Hold On by Alabama Shakes is this weeks free single of the week.

This song is a good release from iTunes.

Apple has this marked as an alternative track.

The music track is reasonable, with a live feel with acoustic guitar and drums. The music did not grab me at any stage.

The song is sung by a male singer, the lyrics are clear, but sometimes almost shouted.

Overall, this is good track, but really not my cup of tea. It did not grab me at any time, and I did turn down a little as some of the sections of the song are shouted. Apart from that it was reasonable to listen to.

SARAH MINOR (KEATON HENSON) – S.O.T.W. – REVIEW (74%)

Sarah Minor by Keaton Henson is this weeks free single of the week.

This song is a good release from iTunes.

Apple has this marked as an alternative track.

The music track is good, with a live feel with acoustic guitar and flute.

The song is nicely sung by a male singer, the lyrics are clear and the singer and his voice matches well with the music.

Overall, this is good track. I found it a little bit slow moving for me, but generally it sounded nice and was clearly sung. Generally, I liked the song and I am sure the singer will find some fans out there. Well worth a listen if you like your acoustic tracks.

THE HORIZON (ALL THE YOUNG) – S.O.T.W. – REVIEW (87%)

The Horizon by All the Young is this weeks free single of the week.

This song is an excellent release from iTunes.

Apple has this marked as an alterative track.

The music track is good. The music has keyboard,  electric guitar and drum backing track. With a solid guitar solo in the middle of the song.

The song is sung by a male singer which is generally very clear. He is not the strongest singer, but not bad either.

Overall, this is an excellent track, this song reminds me of bands I have heard in the past, but they manange to keep it unique to this band. This is the sort of song that I would normally buy so I had a look at the other songs this band had on offer, so the song did its job of advertising the band well.
