#5. Daste. – What If?
Half sultry, half jazzy. Daste.’s latest is a nice little distraction.
#4. Gallant – Hips
Ridiculously strong week, with a track that I’d normally consider for an average week’s top spot sitting instead at #4. Another top track from Gallant’s recent release. Super sexy.
#3. Nick Dorian Feat. Shibo – Kumbaya
I’m on a real “happy-go-lucky” songs trend. This song stands tall purely on those 25 seconds at 0:49 in. Both chill and catchy, a hook that I really really wish had repeated itself throughout the track.
#2. Ruby Empress – Hope
I’m a HUGE Ruby Empress fan. They manage to straddle the line of quirky and catchy so well, making music that is unique sounding, eclectic and yet mainstream enough to appeal to anyone and everyone. It actually kills me to have this at #2 and not #1, as I’ve had this on repeat for a good two weeks.
#1. Glass Animals Feat. Denzel Curry – Tokyo Drifting
Holy geebus. What a track. Easily a contender for song of the year. Denzel’s verse is straight fire and probably one of my favorite hip-hop verses ever, punctuated with a killer drop to end it. Glass Animals are no slouches either, doing their best hip-hop electro impression.
#5. Am!r – Take Off
Super sexy bedroom jams from Am!r. The first few lines hook me in everytime, and while the song loses some of it’s charm near the end, it’s still very very smooth.
#4. Leo Cosmos Feat. Jed – Take My Chances
Are you having a bit of a downer day? Do you wanna magically just start feeling better? Listen to Leo Cosmos’ Take My Chances – problem solved. Dude has incredibly positive vibes radiating through his music.
#3. Berel – Concrete
This one kinda crept up on me. I had it hearted on Spotify, but didn’t think too much of it on first pass. Yet it somehow kept coming up on my shuffle and each time I kept doing a double take to see what track that was. Something real charming about the sound here.
#2. Berry Juice Feat. Deirdre – She Got The Moon
A total throwback track that captured a nostalgic sound of dance disco pop so well. This’ll be stuck in your head for days.
#1. Gallant – Paper Tulips
It’s been quite a journey with Gallant. Dude is a legit superstar now, but I still remember the moment I first heard Please (Vignette) and was mesmerized. Fast forward and we have another new album from Gallant which is actually brilliant. This will not be the only song I feature from it…
