1“Otherways” – NONA
“Pieces of this song have been with me for several years,” says Goldman (the sole creator behind NONA), “but it was only after a failed attempt at a relationship that I was able find a meaning for it. This song defines a time in my life when I prioritized romance but struggled at succeeding in it.” Tell me you can’t relate to that.
2“In The City (When You Know You’re Old)” – Fresh Big Mouf
As I approach the slowing of my metabolism and chronic back pain, I take solace in knowing that I’m not the only one who thought I’d be “shucking and jiving” but wind up wondering “what’s happened to me?” Jokes aside, Fresh Big Mouf is an amazing artist who can make music from literally anything. Some of the most groundbreaking talent to grace YouTube since cats.
3“Letting In The Dead” – DreamVacation
Here’s a dead giveaway that this band is rad — the members have supported live acts such as Foster the People, Airborne Toxic Event, The War On Drugs and Matt & Kim. “We hope to inspire people to think and see things differently than they normally do. And maybe even remember things they thought they forgot. To feel more connected and sense that there is more kindness available than it seems.”
4“Something New” – Secret Weapons
With pop style like Panic! At The Disco, Imagine Dragons, and Grouplove, Secret Weapons’ “Something New” perfectly satisfies your upbeat, feel-good, go-to gospel pop ballad needs. I like to imagine myself climbing an NYC fire escape ladder to the rooftop party of the year (sponsored by sunsets and probably BL Lime).
5“Make Me” – Britney Spears
Genre: Blast from the past
We’re not going to not share a new Britney song…
