CONTROLRadioUK Picks 5 Songs You May Not Have Heard Of

Here at CONTROLRadioUK we're always on the look-out for music be it for the playlist, or just because we think the tracks are pretty neat. Check out our picks below and feel free to leave a comment on your top songs.

We here at CONTROLRadioUK have always loved Gwen Stefani and this song is no different (although I do think Make Me Like You is better). The beats and lyrics are perfect whilst the video is stunning. Gwen is probably an artist you have heard of being in No Doubt and she's an American from California.

Ok this is a bit of an oldie but the posts online over Jack Black's death hoax reminded me of how much I love this song so here it is. I can't pinpoint what it is about this song that's so awesome, it just is. Tenacious D are an American comedy rock duo and like Gwen, from California.

There are often times in multi-tasking you find yourself listening to something and thinking it's pretty rad, and then you come across the video that accompanies it and you're not really sure what to think. That is what we have here. Melanie Martinez is an American singer/songwriter. You have probably heard her songs in passing and not known who she is. Well now you can thank us for putting a video to the music. You're welcome.

I'm ridiculously excited for the new Ghostbusters movie, and with a movie comes a soundtrack. Within 10 seconds of playing this song I loved it so that's always a good sign. Elle King is an American singer/songwriter/actress. If you haven't listened to any of her songs, you're missing out on a treat. But honestly, I'm just really excited for the new Ghostbusters film. Contrary to a misinformed belief it does not look completely terrible *and breathe*.

Ahh summertime. Lot's of partying and fun on the beach to be had, with songs you dance the night away to on the dance floor. This is one of those songs. It's got such a feel good factor to it and unlike a lot of other songs, it actually has a great beat drop I have indeed been dancing away to. It's really quite impossible not to. Dragonette are a Canadian electronis music band from Toronto.
