SKIES are a duo that sounds like The 1975 and Paramore and we love them.

We’ve found a new duo named SKIES that we think are going to be huge. Receiving comparisons to the likes of Paramore and The 1975, SKIES are an addictive synth pop pair that we know you’ll be listening to all winter long.

Their new single ‘Feel Like It’ is taken from their debut EP ‘If You Feel Like It’, released next month, and has already been featured as Radio 1’s Record of the Week.

“The track was written after watching a film about the Tsunami in Indonesia. I couldn’t understand why God couldn’t just reach down and stop it from happening. It also touches on the concept of being in a relationship with someone who isn’t trying, someone who is just a dead weight in the relationship,” Alie Cotter and Jericho Tozer of SKIES state.

SKIES’ EP ‘If You Feel Like It’ is available on November 27. Pre-order now.

Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson kissed on stage last night, should we choose our wedding outfit yet?

Yes, you read that right! Last night’s OTRA show in Birmingham was certainly a wild ride for everyone involved, but before you panic about your OTP having problems, here’s what actually happened.

Everybody in the world knows that Liam and Louis love to be a bit rough and playful with each other, but their play-fights just took a turn in a different direction yesterday. #lilokiss

The two lads accidentally turned their heads at the same time and seemed to have locked lips for a bit there (keep it going boys) and then proceeded to look terribly shocked.

But let’s be honest, the fan reactions are pretty much the best part about this.

Next time they should just read fanfiction before engaging in a play-fight, then they’d know what usually happens.

Harry Styles got to play football with David and Brooklyn Beckham – we can see a jealous Louis Tomlinson looking at the pictures

One Direction are almost *sobs* done with their ‘On The Road Again’ tour, but just being an international pop sensation wasn’t enough for Harry Styles.

Earlier this week he got to play football with not even one, but two Beckhams – Brooklyn and David to be precise, even though we recall Harry not being that talented with big balls, but hey, maybe Louis taught him how to play by now.

Nonetheless he was the one to play with the Beckhams and we even got a lovely group shot out of it, which David and Brooklyn graciously posted on their Instagram accounts with Brooklyn looking at Harry as if he’s just seen an angel descend to earth, but we can’t really blame him for that, can we?

Nice way to warm up before the big game at Old Trafford … Can’t beat a kick around with mates… ⚽️

Is it just us or can you also hear Louis Tomlinson screaming with jealousy? We all know the poor lad loves Becks but apparently didn’t get to play with him, or you know, just didn’t get to be in the picture.

ICYMI: Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean’ returns to top spot and Rudimental score second number one album.

Good news for Justin Bieber as he returns to number one for a fourth non-consecutive week, becoming only the fourth song in history to reach number one at three different stints. We wonder what helped that?

‘What Do You Mean’ also marks the most streamed track of the week, counting 2.91 million listens over the last seven days.

R City and Adam Levine’s ‘Locked Away’ also climbs one place to number two whilst last week’s number one ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ by Sam Smith falls to number three.

Philip George and Anton Powers rise a whopping one hundred and twenty places with ‘Alone No More’ to land at number four, Ellie Goulding rounds off the top five with ‘On My Mind’.

In the albums chart, Rudimental have scored their second number one with new release ‘We The Generation’ featuring collaborations from Ed Sheeran, Bobby Womack and Lianne La Havas.

Band member Amir told Official Charts: “This is mad! When I think back to some of the seminal bands I’ve always loved, they all had at least two major records. I always dreamed of Rudimental having at least two major records – hopefully it will solidify to the world that we’re serious contenders in the game. We’re not going anywhere – we plan to stick around for a long time.”
