How cruel it is to be teased with a song that sounds like summer personified while we shiver in the cruel depths of winter. But we’re grateful for the pure transportation vibes as the pop rock heroes head back to their roots with this simplified jangly ode to pure teen mates-turned-love.
The 1975 return to their roots, and Ama Lou transforms into an elderly couple: all the tracks we’ve got on repeat.
The 1975 – “Me And You Together Song”
Iamnotshane – “Perfect”
“I wrote perfect about myself because I am so perfect it’s stressful.” Such is the tongue-in-cheek poeticism of LA singer-songwriter, and his latest track “Perfect” is a haunting alt-pop slow-burner, trickling into blissful jangly synths. Play and play again.
Charlotte Lawrence – “Joke’s On You”
As if the fire surrounding Margot Robbie’s Suicide Squad spin-off Birds of Prey needed even more fuel, American singer-songwriter Charlotte Lawrence has joined the ranks of Normani and Megan Thee Stallion in the illustrious soundtrack. Lawrence’s undulating vocals dance pierce through the intricate pop production, building to a lush crescendo. Obsessed.
Two Another – “Another Night”
A sultry after-hours track practically designed for that window when the night is winding down, “Another Night” is the latest offering from Australian producer duo Two Another. Expect an R&B/pop hybrid populated with honey vocals and funk-inflected melodies. Dreamy.
Ama Lou – “We Tried, we tried”
Whoever knew that the sumptuous antidote to the most January of all Januarys was heavenly north Londoner Ama Lou donning prosthetics and playing both elderly husband and wife in her hilarious new visuals. Accompanied by Lou’s irresistible pulsing neo-soul. Watch and we defy you not to crease.
