What a crazy week it has been; a week where people are working from home, and the lockdown has truly come into fruition.
This is why we at Indie Top 39 feel that it is more important than ever to continue dishing out the amazing tunes. Here are 9 examples that we feel really piqued our interest.
Charles Fauna » Church
We’ve been quite spoiled with the sheer amount of great electronic pop we have listened to and enjoyed. However, Charles Fauna’s Church does stand as a simultaneously unique and accessible track. We love all the quirky little electronic sounds used, and they give this track an almost regal feel.
Ghosts on TV » Inhibitions
We found this track to have an awesomely nostalgic sound, thanks to the soft guitar melodies, followed by the acoustic percussion. It’s an incredibly tranquil track, but one that also has a very good sense of pace. And thanks to the lengthy duration of almost 9 minutes, it gives “Inhibitions” plenty of time to progress beautifully and become an incredible musical journey.
Holly Humberstone » Falling Asleep At The Wheel
We strongly feel that Holly Humberstone’s “Falling Asleep At The Week” is a track that flawlessly fits into being such a current and accessible sound. The steady energy feels incredibly festival-ready, and the melody is certainly one that should stick with you long after the initial listen.
Llynks » Patterns Through Seams
We simply couldn’t ignore just how flawless Llynks’ vocals are on “Patterns Through Seams”, and we also loved how the minimal yet atmospheric instrumental both succeeds in letting the vocals shine and contributing towards making this track awe-inspiringly gorgeous.
Luminar » Circle
Another track with a soft and tranquil sound, Luminar’s “Circle” has a gorgeously nocturnal melody behind some incredibly soothing vocals. It is a highly intimate and remarkably indulgent song, and we all love it!
The Riot Vans » Memory Lane
With both such, a raw and nostalgic sound, the very first thing we thought about when listening to The Riot Vans’ “Memory Lane” was Bloc Party’s Silent Alarm material, perhaps with a tiny hint of Cage The Elephant in there too. An incredibly fun and engaging listen.
shishi » Mafitishei
Another song that we loved this week that had a more raw sound to it was, of course, shishi’s “Mafitishei”. With quite the quirky composition to it, as well as a nice mixture of moods, this is definitely one that stood out considerably for us.
Tandem Wallace » Endeavour
This track is most certainly one of the most colourful that we have heard this week. With a heavy influence of Two Door Cinema Club’s more current sound, this track brings all of us back to last summer, and will surely be one to stick on your summer playlists this year (we’re faithful that we should all be back out having fun by then).
Tender Central » Body
This gorgeous track reminds us a lot of the likes of Weyes Blood’s Titanic Rising. And seen as Tender Central’s “Body” shares some musical resemblance to that amazing album, it was clearly going to be one to recommend. However, “Body” truly stands as a mystifying track on its own, and the progression and ambience make this song incredibly gripping.
We have picked only nine songs that stood out this week, however below you can find the whole list that features 50 songs.
