LA residents MISUN compile us a playlist of pop bangers.
Dance inflections on 60s pop sounds are few and far between in 2016 but LA project MISUN are here to give us just that. Rip-roaring, bellowing chants charge new single “June” forwards alongside undeniably retro electric guitar riffs. Who knew a song about heartache could be this cheery? Plus extra points for releasing the track on limited edition yellow cassette tape, everybody loves an exclusive.
Following up their debut album, MISUN are looking forward through the nostalgia and leading lady, Misun Wojcik’s playlist below is proof. A slick selection of some of the best alt-pop offerings in recent years and closer months, MISUN and collaborator Gil the Kid’s offerings sit beside them comfortably.
Prinze George – “Upswing”
I love Prinze George! This song gives me power when I feel like I can’t make it.
Sky Ferreira – “You’re Not The One”
Talk about realising someone’s not right for you even when you’re passionate about them. This is my FU song.
Miike Snow – “Heart Is Full”
The lyrics to this song really resonate with me. I’ve been a Miike Snow fan for a long time and always will be.
MISUN – “June”
Here’s my plug for my newest release. But it’s one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written. And I got to collaborate with Gil the Kid who I respect deeply as a musician, artist and person.
Vanic X K. Flay Remix – “Can’t Sleep”
My dance jam hands down. I’m waiting for the day I hear this play at a dance spot. I might just embarrass myself.
Christine and the Queens – “Saint Claude”
I was first introduced to this song through their video and recommend that’s how you watch it. It’s in French and it doesn’t matter one bit if you don’t speak it.
Gil the Kid – “Talking To Myself”
This is my car jam. Especially if it’s a long drive alone, because it brings about reflection and feeling.
