New artist alert… Though 21 year old London-based performer Joel Compass hit the charts with his last single ‘Forgive Me’ in the UK earlier this year, it’s clear that a concerted effort is happening to ensure that his new single ‘Girlfriends’ takes him beyond the shores of Ol’ Blighty and onto charts across the globe.
Produced by the same team behind hits for DJ Fresh and our own Iggy Azalea (Invisible Men), ‘Girlfriends’ is a curious beast. In parts, it feels like it was ripped straight from the charts of the early ’90s; in others, it’s a smooth club track. In a world where the likes of ‘Rather Be’ by Clean Bandit can become big global hits, there’s no reason why this couldn’t follow suit.
‘Girlfriends’ is due digitally in Australia on Friday August 29.
