Stressed out with midterms? I feel ya. Here is some music to help boost your mood this week.
FLETCHER – “Wasted Youth” (Michael Brun Remix)
Power-pop singer-songwriter FLETCHER has teamed up with Haitian DJ Michael Brun to create a dance-pop tune. This nostalgic tune is the perfect song to add to your Spring Break playlist. Brun’s remix successfully enhanced elements of the song that give it that feel good vibe. Make sure to also add these independent artists to your artists to watch list for 2017. Listen here.
Astrid S – “Breathe”
This 20-year old singer-songwriter from Norway is in no way new to the game. Astrid S had done collaborations with Avicii, Matoma and Shawn Mendes, toured with Troye Sivan and won the Norwegian Grammy Award for Newcomer of the Year in 2016. “Breathe” is an electropop song about not being able to react or catch some oxygen when your crush is around. Do not be surprised if you find yourself randomly singing the catchy chorus on your way to class. Listen here.
Vice ft. Jon Bellion – “Obsession”
This genre-bending DJ from Los Angeles holds residences all over the country in Vegas, New York and Miami. He teamed up with singer-songwriter Jon Bellion to create this addicting tune. “Obsession” is about wanting to give someone all your attention because you are obsessed with them. “It’s 3 AM, I’m parked outside / I’m walking to your door / And that can’t wait another night,” sings Bellion. Listen here.
Brayton Bowman ft. Kyle – “PUFF PUFF PASS REMIX”
Brayton Bowman made it onto last weeks list but keeps releasing these bops that I just had to include him again. Zane Lowe premiered the song on Wednesday during his radio show for Beats 1 on Apple Music. Kyle is a rapper from Ventura who used YouTube to kick off his career. The pair teamed up to release the perfect electropop-R&B remix of “PUFF PUFF PASS.” Listen here.
Hey Violet – “Break My Heart”
The Los Angeles based pop-rock band has released “Break My Heart” after their smash hit “Guys My Age” peaked at No. 20 on Billboard’s pop songs chart. In 2015 the band signed to Hi or Hey Records, a record label created by pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer in partnership with Capitol Records. “Break My Heart” is about longing for the pain that comes after a break-up only to be desperate to have them back again.
