A different sound, this group. Soothing vocals brought me into this track but I’m not sure if it was enough to hold me. The beat opens with fingers snapping and continues to some light drums. The lyrics are poetic enough to keep me hanging on, “Wait if I’m on fire. How...

This song is vastly different than any other song that's been released this year. Greta Van Fleet is a newer band that's only been around a couple of years, but they sound like a 70's rock band. This song doesn't break away from that style, it sounds like a 70's love s...

“Ain’t Easy” is an incredibly catchy song. If you hear it, it’ll be stuck in your head for days. It’s about loving someone, but like anything, it’s not easy. It goes through easy and hard parts of being in love. It does this with an upbeat tone that’ll get anyone movin...

“Cold Rain” by Fitness: This has a very synth-pop sound that almost sounds nostalgic in a way. It’s a mix of old synth sound with modern pop to create a unique sound. While the song is upbeat, the meaning behind it is kind of sad. The song is about a woman who is...

A strong hip hop beat and vocalization set in what must be an attempt to hype up the audience. The song doesn’t have any, much less any strong, musical elements. The lyrics support the mainstream sex and drug narrative that isn’t uncommon in this genre. The flow is cho...

"So Into You" by the band NIIIGHTS is a great song for the up and coming band. With a beginning that sounds like a nice cross between CHVCHES and Paramore, the tune comes into its own by the refrain and carries through the rest of the time. The music itself is perhaps...

“Let Me Down Easy” is a mellow song with a great message. The theme of the song is to find love, even when you’re let down. It talks about trying to find “the one” even if you must go through a bumpy ride. In the end it’ll be all worth it. The song itself has a calm to...
