#5. Foxtrott – Deliver
I’m obsessed with the rhytmic hi-hat (my tin ear guess anyway) that paces the entire track through it’s kinda weirdly awkward and enchanting vocals and a pace that feels mysterious.
#4. Evalyn – Big Bad City
Back to back stellar singles from Evalyn this month. Hook and chorus definitely carry this bad boy.
#3. Troye Sivan – My My My
Troye Sivan is very quickly becoming one of my favorite pop acts. He’s got that “it” factor… and the tracks don’t feel over-produced or too made for radio. Only downside is that with his album only just recently released, we’ll now have to wait so long for another album.
#2. Majid Jordan – All Over You
A double release from Majid Jordan last week, with All Over You being my favorite of the two tracks. Got some swagger in it, yet still very danceable.
#1. Opia – Beverly Blues
The boys have got me again. Opia just crushes it with every release and always has me bobbing along with whatever weirdness they decide to make.
#5. Arty – Rain
Arty’s always been one of those acts I really wish I’ve seen. Rain isn’t anywhere near the top of my favorites list from him, but it’s an easy-listening anthem track regardless with a nice progression.
#4. Joshua Worden – Tennessee
This one is made for headphones. Probably mentioned it before, but one of my dream jobs is to be the person responsible for picking music in a movie. This track sounds perfect for some kind of reflective drive where the main character is reflecting on some life choices.
#3. Lanks – Horoscopes
Lanks’ music sounds like has a really unique way of sounding catchy. It’s not like a typical pop track you’d come across at Starbucks or on the radio. It’s clever catchy.
#2. Aquilo – The Road Less Wandered
Brings me back to Aquilo of old. It’s got that signature sound, and the nostalgic feeling of sadness that came with a lot of Aquilo’s earlier stuff. Big fan of the little Western-sounding breakdown as well.
#1. Troye Sivan – Bloom
It’s an overall damn fine pop track. I don’t know much about Troye Sivan, but glad I gave it a random listen when I was perusing the new releases from Spotify a few weeks back. Frankly though, I am sold on the track by virtue of the brilliant verses. So smooth and so catchy.
