Songs of the Week 180: September 9 – September 15

foxtrott#5. Foxtrott – Deliver

soundcloud.com/foxtrottfoxtrott

I’m obsessed with the rhytmic hi-hat (my tin ear guess anyway) that paces the entire track through it’s kinda weirdly awkward and enchanting vocals and a pace that feels mysterious.


evalyn#4. Evalyn – Big Bad City

soundcloud.com/thisisevalyn

Back to back stellar singles from Evalyn this month. Hook and chorus definitely carry this bad boy.


troye sivan#3. Troye Sivan – My My My

soundcloud.com/troye-sivan

Troye Sivan is very quickly becoming one of my favorite pop acts. He’s got that “it” factor… and the tracks don’t feel over-produced or too made for radio. Only downside is that with his album only just recently released, we’ll now have to wait so long for another album.


majid jordan#2. Majid Jordan – All Over You

soundcloud.com/majidjordan

A double release from Majid Jordan last week, with All Over You being my favorite of the two tracks. Got some swagger in it, yet still very danceable.


opia#1. Opia – Beverly Blues

soundcloud.com/opia-official

The boys have got me again. Opia just crushes it with every release and always has me bobbing along with whatever weirdness they decide to make.

Songs of the Week 179: September 2 – September 8

Processed with VSCO with q5 preset#5. Thenwhen – Love Me Later

soundcloud.com/thenwhenofficial

This has got some major promise. Love the sound, and for a debut track there’s some good pieces. Excited to see what’s coming up from this new duo.


gallant#4. Gallant – Haha No One Can Hear You!

soundcloud.com/gallant

Feel like it’s been ages since Gallant has graced these pages. It hasn’t been because lack of content – Gallant’s been releasing regularly over the past year or so – just there hasn’t been anything that’s really caught my ear until Haha No One Can Hear You!.


no rome#3. No Rome Feat. The 1975 – Narcissist

soundcloud.com/norome

Sugar pop. Then again, when The 1975 is featured on a track should we really expect anything else? Love the production and bouncing background vocal sample.


dom ford#2. Dom Ford Feat. Lexi Shanley – Whatever I Want

soundcloud.com/wearedomford

This has been stuck in my head for the past week or two. Lexi Shanley’s vocals are stupid catchy. It’s a pretty gentle track and has that “made for radio” feel.


jerry folk#1. Jerry Folk – Charlotte

soundcloud.com/jerryfolkmusic

Goddman man. I don’t know what it is about Jerry Folk’s music, but it just hits me. It’s weird, yet catchy. It makes me want to dance, despite not really being “dancy”. That first vocal loop is gorgeous.
