Yes! Now tracks like this is exactly why I started blogging about music. Absolutely loving ‘Pains 4 U’ by CASH+DAVID and have had it on repeat for a while now. Thank you very much to Partisan PR for sharing this one with me.

Cash+David are streaming their new single, ‘Pains 4 U’, via The Fader. Featuring a guest verse from rising Atlanta MC Rome Fortune, this track is due for release through Columbia Records on October 30th, 2015. Speaking about the track, Liz Lawrence (David) and Tim Ross (Cash) say: ‘Pains 4 U is a hypnotic repent – a call for redemption after a colossal loss. It’s a mantra of contrition with the desire to pay off a debit of pain’.

I am guilty of ignoring the lyrics of most songs, but you simply cannot ignore the message behind ‘Pains 4 U’. I think this one that will resonate with many. Irresistable beats with equally iridescent lyrics, this is a class new single for CASH+DAVID! RRR wishes them all the best for the upcoming release in October.

Thank you to A & M Entertainment Inc. for sharing this track – “Tearing Down the Walls” by The Fascinated.

Singer/Songwriter Beki Colada has teamed up with music composer/producer Lionel Cohen to create the Hollywood-based 80’s-influenced synth-pop duo, “The Fascinated”.

Followers of RRR will know that I usually go for some hearty bass lines and sturdy wobbles, but every so often, I like to spice it up with some feel good pop – and who doesn’t appreciate the sweet sounds of the 80s, right?

“Tearing Down the Walls” is exactly the type of track I envisage on an episode of Made in Chelsea [LA style]…slow mo shots of posh ladies cruising in a convertible on a sunny day – their hair whipping in the wind, armed with a boot rammed with new shoes and fancy dresses. Cool sounds – nice summer vibes. I am looking forward to hearing more from The Fascinated!

In fact…as Londoners North, East, South and West tragically mourn a failing August Summer and I sit here with rain pouring through my window, I have decided to embrace the entire selection of tracks by The Fascinated on Sound Cloud, whilst imagining myself at a swanky cocktail party in the sweet lands of California. Caifornia Dreamin’ and all that!
