Just as May came to a close this past weekend, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite songs of the month! Here’s a track by track breakdown! Listen to the full playlist here. x
Cry for Me // Hunny
California natives, Hunny have a kick ass vibe. The six piece’s single “Cry for Me” is a game changer. The old school rock feeling flusters and defines youth perfectly. Hunny is different in a way that amazes. Plus, the video is freaking cool.
Moaning Lisa Smile // Wolf Alice
The Rock/Folk four piece signed to the famous Dirty Hit label, is on the rise. Wolf Alice delivers grungy hard-core sounds that makes falling in love so easy. Frontwomen Ellie Rowsell gives “Moaning Lisa Smile” a special touch.
Pools to Bathe In // The Japanese House
Also signed to Dirty Hit, the mysterious teen, Amber Bain is behind the extraordinary sound. “Pools to Bathe In” brings a refreshingly hypnotic sound. It tingles ears and shapes emotions.
If You Ever Want To Be In Love // James Bay
Having experiences shared and talked about builds a connection. James Bay is an artist that contributes those unforgettable feelings. Having a genuine voice helps, but “If You Ever Want To In Love” delivers more authentic guitar and real lyrical content.
Lucky With You // Dutch Party
Dutch Party bring Indie-Rock from Echo Park. After discovering these guys by coincidence, I haven’t stopped listening. “Lucky With You” is a lovely, soft song that makes people want to dance.
T-Shirt Weather // Circa Waves
Four piece Indie-Rock band Circa Waves bring a bit of California vibes all they way from Liverpool. The groovy sound of “T-Shirt Weather”, makes Malibu easier to picture. These are the guys who will soundtrack the 2015 Summer.
Over & Over // Smallpools
Off of Smallpools first album, Lovetap!, “Over & Over” hits you with great insturmentals. The keys and drums sync, which makes the song more lovable. This song will indeed make “wanna live this night over and over”.
Aquaman // Walk the Moon
I remember hearing Walk the Moon’s first single Anna Sun, when i was 13. Now they’re out with their latest album, Talking Is Hard which brings more 80’s vibes. Thanks to a mutual friend I’ve re-encountered with this relaxing tune, “Aquaman”.
Shine // Years & Years
The synths in the beginning captured your instinct within seconds. The electronic pop trio show their best with “Shine”. Olly Alexander’s vocals are gravitating and impressive. They never fail to deliver incredible songs.
