European Border Breakers Chart 9 June 2017

Once more, the European Border Breakers Chart has a huge number of (re)entries: 15 emerging European acts that are being picked up by radio stations outside their home countries. A promising start of an international career!

If 15 songs are too much, let me help you with a smaller selection. Why don’t you try 21 year-old Hannah Rodgers, who calls herself after her grandmother’s nickname, Pixx (pictured)? An obstinate British singer who combines pretty dark synth-pop with unusual hooks. Her new single Waterslides enters at #86 this week. The absolute queen of the chart is Dua Lipa. She already held five positions, but after the release of her debut album another one comes in at #90. It’s Homesick, her high profile collaboration with Coldplay’s Chris Martin. And there are even better tracks on the record… The red lantern is worn with pride by The Amazons this week. Airplay in Estonia, Serbia, Italy and Spain has lead their Junk Food Forever to slip into the chart at #100.
Also this week I’m very happy with the re-entry of Calypso Valois with Vis À Vis and Loyle Carner’s Ain’t Nothing Changed.

Happy discovery!
