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 so check out our picks below.

What kind of Artist brings out a new single for an album that came out over a year ago? Bruno Mars. And what kind of Artist produces an outstanding video and duet for an album that came out over a year ago? Bruno Mars. Every bit of hype you've heard for this song and video is true. The song reaps of old school 90's funk, and Bruno apparently agreed, bringing us a video that features some damn fine moves. Bruno Mars is most definitely an Artist you have heard of and given the album came out in November 2016, you don't need to be told it's already out.

When someone says to you Hayley Kiyoko is incapable of making a bad song or video, they're not just being flattering. She really is incapable of making a bad song or video. Every song is literally better than the last and 'Curious' is no different. What I love the most about Hayley is that both her songs and music videos are unashamedly LGBT. It's refreshing, it's beautiful and in the climate that we're living in? Extremely needed.
Having released 2 Extended Plays previously, 'Expections' will be her debut major label studio album and you can pre-order now. If it's anything like her EP's, it's gonna be fantastic.

Another person hitting the marker in '20gayteen', though quick word of warning: the video may potentially contain seizure triggers for those with photosensitive epilepsy, so viewer discretion is advised.

Way back in 2015 Troye brought us 'Blue Neighbourhood' and the trilogy is still one of the best things I have ever watched. My My My! Is a brilliant song. The video again has a bit of a retro feel about it, but the music and lyrics are veryt much current and unashamedly pop.
Which I can honestly never get enough of.

I did not expect to like this song anywhere near as much as I do, and sometimes curiosity does indeed pay off. The music video is quite simple, and fits perfectly with the song. I was expecting this to be a piano ballad, so was pleasantly surprised that the chorus does indeed mix things up a little bit.

This is amongst my favorite songs on the album, so I'm glad that 'IDGAF' has been given the single treatment. Does the music video go with the song exactly? No, but neither did 'New Rules' and that still turned out to be fantastic. It's nice to sometimes see Artists not only shake things up with the genre of songs they produce, but also with music videos.
