I Know Leopard – Close My Eyes

They call it pop – but I really cant agree. With Clean Bandit inspired strings, I Know Leopard’s latest single reminds me of the sadly disbanded New Navy, before completely creating their own sound by the chorus. ‘Close My Eyes’ comes across almost like a less experimental, more harmonic Ben Howard track, sped up and … Continue reading

Carly Rae Jepsen – I Really Like You (LYAR Remix)

So the title suggests something that wouldn’t normally make its way onto Friday Style, but Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘I Really Like You’ is different.

This isn’t a full original, it’s actually a mashup between an old Skrillex record and Gatlantis’ … Continue reading
