Summer has arrived! So while you’re getting roasted at the beach, having a backyard barbecue or drinking a few too many at a pool party, I decided to stay in and make you a little soundtrack for these odd hot days.
Let’s start off slowly with a band that describes its sound as ‘Tumblr glitch pop, soul fuzz and electroshock’. If that confuses you, feel free to call it chillwave. The mister and mistress of MS MR deliver a powerful, yet fragile track called ‘Hurricane’. They’re supporting Marina & The Diamonds on their first tour ever, but I’m pretty sure they’re here to stay.
The first time I heard about the Australian guys of Strange Talk was when they covered ‘Roxanne’. Yes, they actually redid the classic by The Police and - surprisingly - it worked out very well. For a sunny day, however, I’d recommend their latest single ‘Sexual Lifestyle’. Live it up!
Ready to sweat a little? Victoria Christina Hesketh, better known as electropop-singer Little Boots, released her latest single ‘Headphones’ a few months ago. Even though I love the original, this hysterical dub by Dmitri from Paris will get your feet moving for sure.
One of the most exciting releases this summer is a sad, but strong little gem. It seemed like forever, but The xx have finally released their latest, named ‘Angels’. If you skipped all of the above, I hope you do give this one a chance. It’s like every word and every syllable of ‘Angels’ has another layer, a hidden meaning. Summertime sadness at its very best.
