As the world slowly starts to turn towards a return to normal (or as close to it as it can, I guess) it is great to see (and hear) that so many excellent artists have put their quarantine time to as good a use as they can. The amount of really quality songs coming our way these days is just simply inspiring. Here is a small selection of some of those that I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I do.
Artist: Lime Cordiale
Track: Nobody Takes Me Seriously
Having been around since 2009, Australian favorites, Lime Cordiale have crafted a sound that is familiar yet engaging. With their take on Split Enz – “Nobody Takes Me Seriously,” they really bring a nice groove to a previously angular song. Perfect for throwing into that mix for hitting the road or backyard bbq-ing this summer for sure.
Warpaint returns with their first new song since 2016. It is such a dark and brooding cut that it would fit perfectly in some sort of real tense and moody soundtrack, which works out well as this song shows up in an episode of HBO’s Made For Love. Equal parts haunting and brooding this cut finds a way inside your head and doesn’t look to leave anytime soon.
Artist: Neil Frances
Track: Music Sounds Better With You
Neil Frances really brings the late-night party mood with “Music Sounds Better With You.” If there were ever a genre known as “Late Night Disco” (though I’m not sure there isn’t) this song would be at the top of the charts. This song has such a fantastic vibe, it is impossible to not move along to the beat.
