#5. Tove Lo – Mateo
Everyone’s favorite pop rebel hit us with a new album a couple weeks ago. You should probably listen to it.
#4. Jenaux Feat. Harlee – So Alive
Jenaux continues his crusade to bring disco late 80s disco back (albeit infused with a bit of a 2000s feel). Every track this dude puts out is groovy as hell.
#3. Elijah Dax – Tangible
Hadn’t come across Elijah Dax before during my music blogosophere travels. He’s got an adorable sound, making some pop real feel-good pop music.
#2. Farr – Paranoid
This one lives for the chorus. Super suave.
#1. Breathe. – Haze
Nothing this week comes close to the masterpiece that is Haze. The guys at Breathe. keep one-upping themselves and continually blow my mind. I adore every single thing about this track. Sooooo good.
#5. Jonathan Bree – Waiting On A Moment
If you like chamber pop, welcome to the world of Jonathan Bree. Every song gives me Stepford Wives vibes and I love it all.
#4. Refs – Bones
Bones is off Refs recent four-track release and has all those dark, panic-feeling moments in music that I’ve come to really like.
#3. Roy Woods – Bubbly
For whatever reason I just can’t get into the chorus on this one. Otherwise, it’d easily be one of my fave songs of the year, as those verses are hottttt. Roy Woods is one of the few artists in hip hop keeping that genre alive for me in the dark times of mumble rap.
#2. Lauv – Feelings
That hook just slays me. While I’m not always digging the cringey-nice boy love pop songs from Lauv, there are some tracks that I straight up cannot turn off.
#1. CatchTwentyTwo – All Because Of Her
This shit right here is goddamn brilliant. It not only manages to take an iconic riff line and create something standalone with it, but the vocal play is so smooth… especially the first half of the track. If only it was a bit longer 😦
