It’s leap day today, and I honestly can’t remember the last one. In honor here is a playlist of nine songs that describe how the second month of the year went for me. Listen here x.
Physical // St. Lucia St.
Lucia has to be one of the most underrated artist ever. “Physical” is feel good jam. The electro-pop song gives off the best dance vibes, with heavy synths and catchy beats. St. Lucia’s sophomore album, Matter is out now!
Work // Rihanna Feat. Drake
The first single off of Rihanna’s eighth studio album, Anti is a banger. “Work” is another catchy song, that features Canada’s very own drake. As this collaboration wasn’t enough, Rihanna released two videos for the song, which made the internet go crazy.
Zane Lowe always turns people on to the best music. As I heard DIIV for the very first time, I thought I needed more. The band’s release of Is The Is Are came right on time. As the mellow guitars took over the hypnotic song, “Dopamine”, I instantly felt the need for a road trip. I was hooked on feeling of calmness the whole album brought to life.
Figuring It Out // SWMRS
SWMRS is so in-your-face loud, it’s great. “Figuring It Out” is post high school angst in three minutes and 57 seconds of a head banging tune. Everyone at least asks themselves what and who they want to be, but here SWMRS takes the chill side to the situation while cruising with loud guitar and retable lyrics. The four piece sure know how to bring it.
Soundcheck // Catfish and the Bottlemen
It was about time Catfish and the Bottlemen released something new. After having a successful debut, The Balcony the UK four piece is back with “Soundcheck.” In typical form the song is filled with frontman Van McCann’s english vocals and a swelling guitar solo, somewhat reminding me of Mumford & Sons new material.
BBBlue // Olivver The Kid
Off of Olivver’s second EP, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, “BBBlue” was the one song the stood out for me. The r&b, electro pop beats fuel the song which brings out the meaningful lyrics about love. Plus the video is really dope.
Girl // The Internet Feat. Kaytranada
Grammy nominated band, The Internet has caught my ear recently and I’m glad they did. “Girl”off of their album Ego Death, is one of the most grooviest songs I’ve ever heard. A song with a soft voice backed up with dreamy beats can make you move.
When We Were Young // Adele
Is there anything Adele can’t do? After breaking records with 25, her single “When We Were Young” is a true gem. Speaking to that special someone, Adele belts out an emotional song about her memories with her specific love.
Let Me Love You (Cover) // Jack Garratt
Jack Garratt keeps proving that he’s the one to take over 2016. He covered Mario’s“Let Me Love You”for BBC Introducing session and it was honestly spectacular. Garratt performed with just his voice and his piano to sway the listener. His unique voice and the way he softy took an upbeat song makes this cover his own.
