This weekend’s selection will be our last for 2020, a phrase which feels exactly and simultaneously relieving and daunting. We’ve chosen songs that make us feel that way too – in a good way.
Read on and listen below.
Sneaks‘ 2016 banger “New Taste” snuck right back in, in a time where connecting with isolated experiences (and isolation) is something most of us can relate to.
For fans of: Shopping, Chastity Belt, the Slits
“Galaxy” is a bumpy release from Kid Travis, featuring Eluzai, who showcases velvety vocals in an infectious and subtle pop/r&b offering.
For fans of: The Internet, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Miguel
Proclaimed lofi surfers, Jaded Juice Riders dropped “Nowhere”, a stinging garage pop single destined to spin you somewhere despite its title.
For fans of: Wavves, Cloud Nothings, No Age
Alt Fiction has resurrected some kind of early 2000’s nostalgia through their latest, “People You Know” and we’re in love. It’s instrumentally down-to-earth, with easy pop melodies convincing enough to stream on repeat.
For fans of: Phoenix, the Strokes, Tokyo Police Club
the neighbourhood shocked us with “Stargazing”, a song full of lovely daydreams and a few unexpected energetic shifts. Trust us on this.
For fans of: Alt Fiction, girl in red, Tame Impala
We are and forever will be a fan of the solo venture, Orchid Mantis. Their newest single, “can’t see the sun anymore” is a beautifully layered piece of wintry melancholy.
For fans of: DIIV, Launder, Castlebeat
De Stevens’s chilled out “Big Small Town” elicits drives down a quiet, long road – or maybe, taking your time writing a dramatic letter. The single is grounding: it slows you down, which says a lot to experience such a thing now.
For fans of: Vansire, Horsebeach, Cemeteries
