On this CTL list you will find a mix of artist the first being new artist Sam Smith (is he new? I have no idea who he is, I feel like I am really late on this one…). I listened to his album and couldn’t really get into it but I do really love his song “Nirvana.” He has a powerful, soulful voice, sometimes reminding me of John Legend. You may also recognize him from Disclosure’s hit “Latch.”
Next on the list is Bleachers. This project is really new, with only 2 songs out but Bleachers, aka Jack Antonoff aka Lena Dunham’s boyfriend aka lead guitarist in Fun. aka lead singer of Steel Train, has been involved with music for a long time. I actually saw New Jersey band, Steel Train in high school and just realized it was the same guy! This song is really energetic and fun to sing along to, it may become your next favorite...
Other songs on the list include- power 105 favorite, Tinashe’s “2 On” and HOLYCHILD’s jam, “Happy With Me.” Although “Happy With Me” came out in March, it’s definitely more of a summer song. Next- FKA twigs’ new single, “Two Weeks.” I never really understood all the hype surrounding FKA twigs but this song shines some light on why she’s so popular. Lastly is Walking Shapes’ “Feel Good,” which I haven’t been able to stop listening to since seeing them last Thursday (look out for a post on their live performance soon!).
GO, start listening!
