Song of the Week: Metroplane ft. Bree Runway – Word of Mouth

Taken from this week’s Future Pop mailer. Click here to subscribe. All my Songs of the Week are featured on my Top of the Poptastic playlist, along with the rest of my faves from the year so far.

Not sold on the new singles by MNEK or Becky Hill? I think you might be more into this track they co-wrote which slid under the radar a few months ago. Metroplane is a supergroup (superduo?) made up of Alex Metric and Aeroplane, who are both established as solo DJ/producers. I love Word of Mouth‘s combination of kitsch buh-buh-buhs, catchy hook, and feisty vocals from British singer Bree Runway. I have a taste for songs that offer no light and shade, bursting with energy and fun from start to finish without a pause for breath, and Word of Mouth is a great example. Interestingly, Metroplane share production credits here with Mark Ralph, whose first big hit was Years & Years’ King – another track which definitely fits that description.
