#5. Oliver feat. MNDR – Falling Back
This song is pretty goddamn persuasive if you ask me (ya that may or may not be a reference to my favourite part of the entire track). If you need your 80s disco fix for the week, Oliver has gotcha covered.
#4. Culpriit – Driveway
These guys sure know how to write some catchy lyrics. Reminds me a lot of the teen angst songs I grew up listening to in high school. I assume this is the equivalent for today’s generation (but hey, I’m still allowed to like it).
#3. Timeflies – Nobody Has To Know
I’ve always been intrigued by Timeflies. Used to love giving their “Timeflies Tuesday” cover/remix series a listen every week. Then one day, they went full mainstream pop and while it’s great for them and their success, I felt kinda like they dumbed down their sound to appeal to the general masses. That said, Nobody Has To Know has become a major guilty pleasure for me. Just makes me feel all nice inside.
#2. Riley Pearce – Misplaced
Not really sure what to say about this one. One of those tracks to play late at night with your headphones and and just kinda get lost in the sounds and lyrics. Very reminiscent of James Vincent McMorrow.
#1. Tove Lo – Disco Tits
Pretty sure this will be my track of the year. It’s simply brilliant. It’s weird, catchy, danceable and a pop masterpiece all at the same time. Oh ya, and it’s called Disco Tits. I mean c’mon!! Tove Lo is so cool. Pumped for her album release in late October.
