It was swelteringly hot and the sun was beaming down on thousands and thousands of bodies in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Even though there were no clouds in the sky and no shade to hide from the sun, one thing was for sure - nobody was dying of thirst; the drinks were flowing!
I have featured Erika on Milky Tea Kid a few times over the years, the first time was under the name iMMa and she recently did a Tour Day In The Life post on touring with Skunk Anansie. Well now I am featuring her again but this time it is under the name Erika.
I got quite excited yesterday and I may have squealed a little bit when I found out that The Civil Wars have returned with new music for us. That also means there is a new album coming as well! The track is called The One That Got Away.
This week we are shining the spotlight on Flight Brigade. Their folky pop blend makes their songs hard to forget and there is one song in particular that comes to mind. A Girl Who Loves Her Smoke And Wine has a revitalised video as well!
Most people will have heard of Mikky Ekko due to his collaboration with Rihanna on her single Stay. The song was co-written by Mikky Ekko and Justin Parker and did quite well in the charts. I've been playing one of his own tracks on repeat. Have a listen.
