Tuesday’s Top Tasty Tracks
Dumb – Lower Than Atlantis
Lower Than Atlantis should be bigger, and it’s not even a question. They continue to put out great music album after album. This new single is no different. A catchy chorus, a great hook, solid harmonies and great lyrics. This song is good.
Dear Life – High Valley
Canadian country stars High Valley are finally releasing their debut american album, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m not a big country guy, but I really like Jake Owen, Eli Young Band, Zac Brown Band and these guys. Their last album (in Canada), County Line, was on repeat in my car for a long, long time. It honestly sounds like they took a huge step forward musically, and honestly, November 18 can’t come soon enough. Need some new High Valley in my life.
Bad Habit – Carousel Kings
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve heard anything from these guys, but they dropped this single out of nowhere, and I really dig it. While getting off of CI Records was a good move, I’m not sure Victory is much better, but time will definitely tell. There’s some serious Broadside feels, especially vocally, and that’s completely ok by me. If you dig pop-punk/easycore, this is right in your wheelhouse. Give it a spin.
Dark Circles – Maika Maile
This song has been out a little over a week, but it deserves to be heard. Maika was the lead singer of scene band There For Tomorrow, and had some serious success there. Like many lead singers, it seems Maika has a wider range than just what he was doing with There For Tomorrow (or Afterhour, as they’re called now), and he’s exploring it as a solo project. And I honestly don’t mind. Often, I think “Why did you think doing an R&B album would be a good idea,” but that’s not the case with Maile. He actually can sing (a bonus) and the beat behind him matches the style he’s going for. If you like Zayn or The Weeknd, give this dude a shot because he’s got it.
