Dil Galti Kar Baitha Hai
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s classic “Dil Galti Kar Baitha Hai” will never get tired of being performed. T-Series’ newest rendition of the famous song features vocalist Jubin Nautiyal on lead vocals. The Meet Bros, who also appear in the video, wrote the song, which was released on Saturday. While Jubin’s singing is endearing, the song lacks feeling and ends up being just another T-Series love ballad. It sounds a lot like Jubin’s earlier hit, “Kutti Mohabbat,” which was also produced by T-Series. Manoj Muntashir composed the song “Dil Galti Kar Baitha Hai.”
Underneath Your Spell by Glasglow
Our upcoming Scottish singer, otherwise known as, Ewan MacFarlane (no relation to Seth MacFarlane) has released another new single, Underneath Your Spell, and it sounds like an absolute corker of a track.
Over the past few years, Ewan has been steadily making a name for himself as a solo artist since his days in Northern Grime Social, and by the look and sound of it, he seems to be doing quite well for himself.
Underneath Your Spell is about the feeling of euphoria when you are completely in love with that special someone and just wanting to be with them all the time.
As a rock song it actually quite an upbeat, uplifting one and where you would no doubt find yourself singing along to the chorus. The song is packed full of strong guitar riffs and steady-paced drum beats as well the piano which adds just that bit more depth and body to the song. For a love song, it’s in a similar sort of vein to The Calling’s ‘Wherever you might go’ and has that American rock sound to it. You can hear the passion in Ewan’s voice when he sings and is not afraid of singing about what he feels.
