#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 😦
#5. Gawvi – With You
Very structured pace and sound that likely drains on you after some time, but I still appreciate how the track has managed to capture my attention and has had me singing along.
#4. Phlake Feat. Alina Baraz – Gone
Phlake was my big new discovery in the last couple weeks. A random, one-track listen turned into a thorough consumption of pretty much every track I could find. Gone ends up being my second favorite track from his catalogue.
#3. Lauv Feat. Julia Michaels – There’s No Way
This song is disgustingly cute and gives me some feels.
#2. Phlake – Breakup Business
Been a while since there’s been a sultry R&B track really blow me away. Breakup Business does just that.
#1. Caius feat. Neigh – Your Love
Beyond catchy vibes that transport me back into summer. Absolutely obsessed with Caius’ Your Love, thanks in large part to some great vocals from Neigh.
