#5. The 1975 – I’m In Love With You
Maybe it’s just poor memory, but the 1975 does not bring up happy-go-lucky love songs to mind… and yet here we are. Love the vibes of the verses. Chorus, not as much.
#4. Big Wild – Curious
Been fun watching Big Wild explode into the mainstream. Dude’s a legit star now. I like to think it’s all cause of
6’s to 9’s, which is pretty much my favorite song of the past decade.
#3. Franc Moody – Into The Ether
This song has mad swagger. Another this week tho where I’m not quite into the chorus, but love everything else about it… especially the futuristic space-y vibes.
#2. Aevion – Be The One
Disco is back babeeeeeeeeey.
#1. Elderbrook Feat. Tourist – Howl
The “you really turned my life around” gets me every time. So good.
#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.
