As yet another week draws to a close, it’s time for Getintothis’ Max Richardson to round up things here on the site.
Well, here we are once again.
It’s been a manic week in the music world, with a wide range of headlines, new releases and gig announcements keeping music lovers across the country on their toes.
We’ve of course been treated to the new album by Tame Impala, which after a brief initial listen is sounding simply sublime.
The Slow Rush further builds on the foundation of that signature Tame Impala sound, with the iconic warm fuziness of course taking centre place in the lengthy album, with a runtime of nearly sixty minutes.
A standout is definitely title track Lost in Yesterday, which includes a gorgeously crisp bass lick alongside tight, punchy drums.
Elsewhere this week, we’ve also heard the theme for the new James Bond film, performed by the consistently excellent Billie Eilish.
No Time To Die sounds exactly like, well, a Bond theme – a cocktail of retro strings and effortlessly cool piano, topped with the instantly recognisable vocal of Eilish crooning.
This is definitely one for fans of classic Bond, instantly drawing comparisons to the theme from Skyfall; a modern take on the classic franchise.
It’s definitely clear that Eilish was a great fit for the theme, with her silky vocal effortlessly blending with the orchestral backing harking back to the classic Bond themes; particularly Goldfinger and You Only Live Twice.
Have you been listening to anything particularly interesting this week? Or do you have any thoughts on the new Bond theme, or Tame Impala album?
We’d love to hear them, so feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
