Songs of the Week 372: August 14 – August 20

#5. Roy Woods – Insecure

Still on the Roy Woods train, all these years later.

#4. Lou Val – Didn’t I

Lou Val being Lou val. Unique and experimental.

#3. Tessa Dixson – Bad Thoughts

Fantastic transition/chorus. Groovin use of layered vocals.

#2. Great Gable – Sidewalk

Some pop rock songs just have it. This is one of em. Catch AF.

#1. Neil Francis – Dancing (Psychic Mirrors Remix)

Can’t find any pages for Psychic Mirrors, but wow do they do a fantastic number on this Neil Francis tune. That drop is glorious. My friend described this as very “Japanese City Pop” and I totally hear it.

Songs of the Week 310: March 28 – April 3

#5. Andreww – Shadow Love

I’m a sucker for catchy lyrics and catchy hooks. Both in abundance in Andreww’s grunge-y pop track.

#4. Emawk – Yet

This track feels like it’s so close to being one of my favorite songs of the past year or two. It’s clever, catchy and kinda off-beat. I just adore the verses. However, the chorus really doesn’t do it for me, and I find the full stop in the track a tad jarring. Yet (see what I did there?), I still have it cracking the top 5 of the week b/c those verses are brilliant.

#3. Gregarious Feat. Robin Yerah – Miscommunicate

We’re starting to see some warm weather summer jams hit the airwaves. I like this track way more than a #3 of the week song, but alas… strong week.

#2. Abroad – To Say

As far as I’m concerned, Abroad only make chart-topping pop hits. I think I have loved every single one of their releases and have featured them at least 2-3 times before. The subtle drop in the second verse gets me everytime. Smoooth.

#1. Neil Francis Feat. Raffaella – On the Lookout

NEIL FRANCES | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Ok so while this came out months ago, I only discovered it last week and so I’m counting it in my “the summer jams are here” theory because this is the ultimate summer vibe song. I’m also kinda in love with Rafaella’s voice.
