#5. Big Gigantic Feat. Felly – St. Lucia
This song screams “festival” to me, and I fully expect it to be the song played at almost every big summer bash this year.
#4. Gareth Donkin – Inside
Struggling to sort the top 4 songs this week. Finally settled on Inside by Gareth Donkin as the 4th, although it’s deserving of a much higher placing. Some pretty smooth, mature RnB.
#3. Yes Please – Half Nelson
Yes Please are quickly jumping up the ranks of my favorite new bands. Their brand of catchy, frat-house hip hop is right in my wheelhouse.
#2. The 1975 – Birthday Party
The 1975 kinda feel like the superstar band that is kinda forgotten. To me, they are my new-age Dashboard Confessional / Something Corporate. There’s a bit of high-school love in their sound (and yes, I realize the song here is about heroin addition).
#1. Roddy Ricch – Big Stepper
I don’t know what it is, but I’m so into Roddy Ricch. Another standout track from Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial.
