Death From Above 1979 : ‘Virgins’

This is another one of my favourite tracks from the last DFA1979 album – especially due to that gnarly, blues-y breakdown at the 2:00 minute mark. I love how they keep switching up the music mid-song on a lot of the tracks from the album.

And if the track wasn’t enough, things get extra weird in this brand new music video, which is directed by the wife of one of the band members. Definitely not for the faint of heart.

Joywave : ‘Somebody New’

There’s no doubt about it – this is one kick-ass track from Joywave’s debut album,which came out earlier this month, and it’s mostly accredited to that bass line and big electronic beats! In addition, ‘Somebody New’ also has one of the biggest and most original choruses I’ve come across this year so far. (Good luck getting it out of your head today).

It reminds me so much of the Alt-Rock scene in the late 90’s/early 2000’s, where we saw electronic elements starting to seep into the sound of a typical Alternative rock band. This would later spawn a thousand Indie Rock artists. A good example of such a band would be Tinfed.

Death Cab For Cutie : ‘El Dorado’

“It’s kinda like a party that you never wanted to attend
But when an invitation finally arrives you change your mind”

The rolling drums accompanied by the reverb-heavy guitars and vocals are a perfect blend in this new Death Cab for Cutie song. It’s may not be groundbreaking by any measure, but the sound is perfect for what the band does best : providing lush melodies to a spacey, harmonious score.

The icing on the cake? The keyboard at the 2:00 minute mark, and then the culmination of sound as the song wraps up in the last 30 seconds. Sublime.

Miami Horror : ‘Cellophane (So Cruel)’ (feat. Aaron Miller & Gavin Turek)

Unless you were born in the 90s and after, here’s your chance to relive those 1980s summers without the use of an instagram filter. Get your hands on the new Miami Horror album, hit the ‘repeat all’ button, bust out those sunglasses, and cancel everything else you were planning to do this weekend.

The new album is flawless from start to finish, and while I already have my favourites just after a few listens, ‘Cellophane’ is definitely the teacher’s pet from the lot. It’s definitely going to be on a lot of future dance playlists. Who is Aaron Miller because I cannot seem to find any information on him anywhere, and his vocals are just perfect for the Indietronica/Nu-Disco genre.
