#5. Litany – Call On Me
Litany make really endearing music. Call On Me is just another painfully cute track from a duo that’s really rising in my books for go to pop songs.
#4. Drake – In My Feelings
Does anything really need to be written about this track? I’m a little late to the party, especially with the Kiki crazy, but I gotta give props where they are due – this track is just too catchy to not make the cut.
#3. Evalyn – Angels
Newcomer (at least to me) Evalyn with a pretty solid indie pop track. Some great lyrics make this both singable and catchy.
#2. Inner State 81 – Yung Love
Such a fantastic sample. There’s enough variation in the track to keep the listener engaged as well.
#1. Colordrive – Ultraviolet
Reminds me a bit of Empire of the State, but without Australian pop diva feel. Seems to be the week of pop, and this has all the pieces to have you humming along after the first or second listen.
#5. Whinnie Williams – Sorry Now
If this doesn’t stick in your head, you aren’t human. Painfully catchy chorus.
#4. Aquilo – Seagull
Aquilo returns this week (or last week) with Seagull – another in their long line of standout pop tracks.
#3. Bravestation – Gemini
Came across Bravestation this past week through a release of another song (which just mayyyyy be featured next week). Doing my “listen to every track by a new band ever” routine, Gemini stuck out as probably my favorite of all their tracks. Something real charming about this.
#2. Tom Misch Feat. Loyle Carner- Water Baby
There’s something about Tom Misch’s voice and sound that is incredibly calming. While I do love the verse brought by Loyle Carner, I can’t but help to do a couch wiggle to the soft vocals of Tom.
#1. Drake – Nice For What
Stupid catchy Drake. I swear to god I don’t know how he does it. He just has this knack for producing music that is irresistible. I will say that this track has worn on me a bit since the first listen (which literally had me thinking it was going to be top track of 2018 after 1 play). Just gotta learn the lyrics of this bad boy so I can sing along while I bust a move.
