Midweek Pick-Me-Up Playlist

Aysha Hussain / November 22, 2017

Got that Wednesday feeling? The weekend seemingly out of reach? Well, we have a few tracks to keep you going,so let’s pick you up and pull you out of that midweek slumber!

Like Magic – “Jungle Sky”

Mysterious and almost unsearchable, Like Magic, blend ethereal electronic sounds that build to a climactic military-like trumpet. If this is a taste of what we can expect with their new album release, then we are definitely in the mood to march into a musical soundscape. Electronic is an ever-expanding landscape, so we won’t try to pigeon hole this one.

BAYNK – “Want 2”

Hailing from New Zealand, producer BAYNK already has a strong following and we are really feeling his output. Stylised trap, hip hop and electro elements breeze throughout “Want 2” effortlessly. Why not listen to his recently-released debut EP, Someone’s, while you’re at it?

EDSUN – “Apologee”

Let inflections of smooth 90’s R&B guide you throughout “Apologee”. Managing to veer away from the outdated contrived cliché the genre is capable of churning out, EDSUN’s minimalist approach works well. Its harmonious vocals exude an urgency in emotion. With a mesmerising video to boot, this is one worthy of spinning on repeat.

King Krule – “Dum Surfer”

Archy Marshall AKA King Krule returns with a hypnotic track infused with jazzy lo-fi, a sprinkling of 90s alternative-indie and funk. This one is held together with the young crooner’s raspy vocals. This is what makes King Krule stand apart from his peers.

Anna St. Louis – “Fire”

LA-based artists Anna St. Louis brings us a riff-laden track with a Mid-Western-folk feel, driven by finger-plucked guitar intricacies. St. Louis is a singer-song writer we can get behind. “Fire” exhibits notes of nostalgia, and lend itself to a lightness of the heavier burden found in her calming vocals.
