Industry Look To The UK With New Songs "Drown Me In The Music" + "Kill The DJ"

Industry are back with two new jams, and at this point I'm just going to start referring to them as the Irish Ace Of Base (yes, Industry, that's a compliment—feel honored!)—because that's how popsexxy they are.

Not only is the quartet supporting JLS on the X Factor boy band's upcoming Irish Arena Tour in Belfast and Dublin, they're also getting ready for an official UK launch. But they need your help in deciding which of the two following dance tracks to release in Ol' Blighty—"Drown Me In The Music" or "Kill The DJ":

Give each a listen and go vote on Industry's official Facebook page. Both tracks were produced by Ki Fitzgerald and Klaus Derendorf, and "Kill The DJ" was mixed by Grammy winner Dave Pensado.

You wanna know what I think? "Drown Me In The Music" is the clear-cut hit. It's got ABBA-esque melody that immediately grabs you upon first listen.

But "Kill The DJ" shouldn't be discounted, either. Maybe a second or third single, after "Drown" does a proper job of charming the Brit charts.

    D'Luv - me thinks you are a little too smitten with the boys of Industry to be truely objective. These songs are average, at best. Not bad, but not great, just like the rest of their songs. They will continue to falter in the charts until they can score better songs. Until that point, they will be four averagely talented individuals, desperately seeking fame, with no distinctive personality.

    Both are great, release a double single! :)

    i'm rooting for Kill The DJ, but am warming slowly to Drown In The Music... i'm happy they are doing this type of tune though :)

    Anonymous, guess I'm thinking more along the lines of which one has a better chance of becoming a hit.

    Mark, no distinctive personality? Why, you must not have scrolled down and clicked the link to my interview with Industry member Donal Skehan! Click away, my friend!

    rcLoy, GREAT idea!

    Paul, me too. The ballads were okay, but two in a row was enough.

    D'Luv think ya might have missed their last release "My Mistake." It didn't chart and it too was a slowy, so there were three in a row!! My Baby's Waiting is way better than these two newbies but it wouldn't be liked in the UK I don't think. I agree that these two songs aren't spectacular but they are good. They recorded a song called Don't Let Me Go which was supposed to be the first UK single months ago but I don't even know if it will be on the album now. Here is a perfomance of the song, not great quality but you get the gist of the song, which in my opinion is their best song they've recorded and would set the charts on fire!!
