  1. I’m not sure if it’s been released yet.
     
  2. It's cute I guess?

  3. It's supposed to tick all the boxes but it doesn't click for me at the moment. A hybrid of Future Nostalgia, Joel Corry Capital FM-dance and Eurovision, but it ends up being neither.
     
  4. The chorus needed to pop for this to really work, but as it is, it's a late-in-the-tracklisting mild bop.
     
  5. have u seen the Starstruck hashtag emoji on Twitter ?!

  6. This has been insta-added to the Radio 1 A-list which...has surprised me a little.
     
  7. Really? They RINSED the singles of the last era.
     
  8. That’s never stopped them from dumping artists from the playlist before, especially as the last album was nearly 3 years ago and flopped pretty spectacularly.

    I thought this might be a cautious c-list add at best.
     
  9. Olly is very en vogue at the moment which probably helps a lot.

  10. If he has to release 2 or 3 slightly generic bops as singles to appease the label into letting him release a great gay album (aka one the label wouldn’t have faith in/wouldn’t know what to do with) then I’ll take that compromise.
     
  11. Yeah the "sound" of this this is radio and Topshop changing room catnip, and it'll be everywhere – I won't be playing it much, but it does its job.
     
  12. I worry 'great gay album' for Olly is Santify x 10.
    I'm very here for his Listen Without Prejudice Volume Cig though.

    Decent verses but the safe chorus kinda lets it down a bit and the "not giving you up" hook feels a bit played out. Summer bops this year have to come harder than this. Learn something from 'Hot Hot'!

  15. Yeah, It's A Sin really feels like it's pushed him to the next level so I imagine he will get some decent streaming numbers this week.

    I'm not entirely sold on Starstruck yet. It's just perfectly serviceable for me at the moment but I felt the same about If You're Over Me and that ended up being a big hit so I'm not the best at seeing how this is going to go when it comes to Years & Years.

  16. It's generic and lacking... but I keep listening to it?
     
  17. I quite like Starstruck, it's not a Shine which I was hoping for as Olly's first solo release but if this basic bop is a hit to get the locals onside we should hopefully be getting a few Up In Flames on the album.
     
  18. It may be everywhere, but it definitely won't be in Topshop changing rooms dd

  19. No Graham Norton on the schedule now this evening I see.
     
  20. What boys tell me when I tell them a story during our first date. Stick with it.
