ayokay’s latest offering featuring Baker Grace is an upbeat breakup song with production that directly opposes its message, giving off a similar vibe to Lily Allen’s Smile. Needless to say, this song is far more modern. It’s an endlessly catchy, feel-good summer song that’s tailor-made for a driving with the music on blast and all the windows down. It may only be Tuesday, but when you listen to this it’s going to feel like your weekend is starting early. You’re welcome!
Billie Eilish hit it big with single Ocean Eyes, and fans of the her ethereal voice and futuristic production have been waiting with bated breath for every single she’s released since. Those fans (myself included) are lucky, because Billie recently released dont smile at me, a three-song package featuring COPYCAT, watch, and idontwannabeyouanymore. All three songs are worth listening to on repeat – they’re incredible. COPYCAT is the standout, though. It’s a far cry from her previous work, and the deep, bass-heavy instrumental contrasts perfectly with her light voice floating over it. With lyrics like “Call me calloused, call me cold, you’re italic, I’m in bold,” Billie is making an statement that she’s here, and she’s not going anywhere.
Tropical house is having a major moment thanks to people like Kygo, and it’s clear why. It’s easy to listen to and carries a generally happy vibe. This remix by Autograf takes one of Lorde’s best songs and kicks it over a great beat and some killer melodies that build up perfectly. It’s one of those ones you kinda just float on.
