Tuesday’s Top Tasty Tracks
THE TOP FOUR BRAND NEW TRACKS FROM OCTOBER 23RD-29TH.
These four songs are all pretty outside my usual wheelhouse, so if you avoid my posts because you don’t find anything you like, give this one a try!
I Saw Red – OWEL
Owel is unique and wholly worth your time. I Saw Red sees the band turn more into their airy sound with an acoustic guitar and breathy vocals. This beautiful, haunting song highlights what this band is so good at: ambient, orchestral sounds mixed beautifully with a post-rock sound. Their inventive approach to music makes them a perfect soundtrack to dinner parties, rainy days and road trips.
Genre: Indie Rock
Bleed Magic – I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME
Ex- Panic at the Disco bassist Dallon Weekes has a new band in IDKHow, and they’re incredible. Both being modern and a complete 80s throwback band simultaneously, IDKHow is incredibly catchy and well written. Bleed Magic is bouncy, catchy with creative and complex instrumentation. It’s very reminiscent of early 2000s brit-pop bands, again with a fresh coat of paint. There’s a lot of different influences on this song, while still being incredibly original.
Genre: Electronic Rock
JT – Jon Bellion
Jon Bellion is the most creative artist working today, and this song proves that. The chorus is absolutely phenomenal, and the use of a choir with the name drop of a pop culture icon means this song is built for success. Jon has such an ear for hooks that get stuck in everyone’s ear and don’t leave for days. There’s such a variety of instruments and influences on this track, and they all work so well together. All this mixed with the creative pun of namedropping movie titles that Travolta has starred in makes this song have so many layers, and such an enjoyable listen every single time.
Genre: Alternative Hip-Hop/Pop
“sometimes you meet the right people at the wrong times” – Can’t Swim
Can’t Swim continue to flex their songwriting skills on this latest release. This song sees the band move away from the pop-punk and more into a rock vibe. The chorus is so well done, so grabbing, and immediately intriguing. The chord work with the guitar is reminiscent of Polyphia, the best band working in the scene today. The song tells a beautiful story, a highlight of this band in a genre that struggles with lyrics. There’s so much to like in this song, and I really hope they continue to sharpen their songwriting skills as they continue. They have come so far, and there’s still so much they could break into.
Genre: Alternative Rock
