TRACK OF THE WEEK Lyra- Emeralds OK, so we’ d slept on Ly ra un­til she took over our Ins tag ram feed via Body& Soul this week­end. And oh man, we’ re in. The buzz around this Cork singer says En ya, but we think she ow es a debt in­stead to Florence and the Ma­chine.

Think grand, ver­dant metaphors, tales of wild nights and swoopy, gal­lop­ing vo­cals that come crash­ing down in the cho­rus. There’s an EP on Spotify–and we’re keep­ing our ears out for an al­bum.

He roof the week is Kate Nash, who spoke up about the pres­sureon wom­enin thep­ub­lic eye. She told the In­de­pen­dent: “When you’ re a woman, you have such a strange re­la­tion­ship­with your body be­cause–es­pe­cially when you’re in the pub­lic eye– you’ re con­stantly be­ing judged.

“Peo­ple com­ment on my body all the time in a really in­ap­pro­pri­ate way, in away I find com­pletely of­fen­sive. [I] saw it in se­ri­ous news­pa­pers where I’ve been called‘ too fat’ and‘ too ugly’ to be a pop­star.”

Mean­while, Louis Tom­lins on told the Guardian that he never really found his role in One Di­rec­tion .“The oth­ers have al­ways been… Like Niall, for ex­am­ple. He’ s the most lovely guy in the world. Happy-go-lucky Ir­ish, nosense of ar­ro­gance.And he’s fear­less. There are times I’ ve thought :‘ I’ d have a bit of that .’ Zayn, back in the day. He could re­late­tome­o­nan­erveslevel.In the­firstyear, we were both the least con­fi­dent. But Z ayn has a fan­tas­tic voice and for him it was al­ways about own­ing that. Li am al­ways had a good stage pres­ence, same as Harry. Harry comes across very cool. Liam’ s all about get­ting the crowd go­ing, do­ing a bit of danc­ing… And then there’s me.”

Zero of the week is a love scene between Ed Sheer an and He­len Mir­ren. Ed told ITV. “I al­ways loved He­len Mir­ren, me and He­len could do a love scene. I guess that sounds weird, doesn’t it ?” I’ m not really a good ac­tor, and she’s a very good ac­tress, so I don’ t think she’ d want to do it ”.
