#5. Kilian & Jo Feat. Conrad Sewell – Little Love
Owners of the coolest header image I think I’ve used for any blog post, Kilian & Jo’s debut single is a uplifting indie pop song with some catchy warped vocals that will remain stuck with you well after you first listen.
#4. Snakeships Feat. Tinashe & Chance the Rapper – All My Friends (PREP Remix)

Seems to be me that Snakeships is remixed more than most artists. This one, by PREP, takes an already summer-ready track and adds some more summer. I’m not the biggest fan of Chance, but Tinashe sounds fantastic as usual.
#3. Louis Mattrs Feat. LK Faith – Messed Up
Wouldn’t be a weekly top 5 list without a good ol’ bedroom jam. Loving LK Faith’s sultry vocals and the line “So I… stay up late” is perpetually stuck in my head.
#2. Sunbathers – Intimacy
Totally cheating this week. I actually considered this song for last week’s list, but decided it just couldn’t make the cut and beat out anyone else. Since then, I’ve fallen in love with Intimacy and the nostalgic feeling it gives me of 1990s angsty teen rock. Sometimes songs just need a little marinating.
#1. Hoodie Allen Feat. Blackbear and KYLE – Champagne and Pools
As with every Hoodie Allen song I have posted, I feel dirty. They all feel like guilty pleasure songs. I cannot, however, pretend that this chorus hasn’t been stuck in my head all week. Or that I haven’t been walking to work singing this for the entire way (it’s only a 5 minute walk). I am a huge fan of KYLE, and while I don’t know much about Blackbear I believe this is the second or third time he’s been featured in a song in one of my top 5 lists.
