You Don’t Get Me High Anymore // Phantogram

Last I’ve heard of the duo, Phantogram their single, “Fall In Love” was on the radio. Two years later they’re back with new music. “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” contains their original electronic sound, and Sarah Barthel vocals are sharp!

Dang! // Mac Miller Feat. Anderson .Paak

Mac Miller announced that his fourth studio album, The Divine Feminine is set to release September 16. So, he dropped his single, “Dang!” which features the smooth  Anderson .Paak. “Dang!” is a smooth jam which features Paak’s soulful chorus.

Be Apart // Porches

After hearing about Porches due to their SXSW buzz, I checked them out briefly. They later announced they were supporting BØRNS at the Santa Monica Pier show. “Be Apart” was the song that officially got me hooked. Hearing their sound live was surreal. Their mixture of electronic and indie  work well. Plus, the synths are insanely good.

Run // COIN

The four piece band from Nashville bring out a unique sound to August. “Run” is a fun uptempo summer song for your summer. The band delivers a fresh indie sound.  COIN’s self titled debut album conveys cinematic songs to soundtrack your life.

Youth // Glass Animals

“Youth”is one of those songs that gets you in the mood for the night. The groovy tune with exotic beats proves that the band is capable of evolving their sound. The unique vocals and a spiritual-like tone are perfect for this band.

Wildlife // RYE

From the moment “Wildlife” began, I was immediately into it. The beats are crazy to begin with. Plus a female vocalist is refreshing to hear, in general. The repetitiveness of the beats and synths bring out RYE’s voice and it’s memorizing.

Cold Water // Major Lazor Feat. Justin Bieber and MØ

“Cold Water” is actually a very catchy song with meaningful lyrics about coming together. The collaboration between the three artist is perfect, since they’ve had experience with electronic before. And of course the song went straight to number one. 

Someone That Loves You // HONNE Feat. Izzy Bizu 

A friend a recommended me to listen to British duo, HONNE and wow, I’m glad she did. I’ve been listening “Someone That Loves You” because of it’s relaxing mood. Izzy Bizu’s voice is delicate, but when combined with HONNE, it’s pure magic. 

Brazil // Declan McKenna

British singer/songwriter, Declan McKenna is all sunny vibes. The first time I heard “Brazil” was on my local radio station because of their “new music” segment. The first thing I noticed was McKenna’s voice. It’s raspy and original, which fits his indie pop songs.
