I had honestly never heard of Phoenix until this week, which is pretty impressive given the fact they have over 4.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone, but I’m glad I found them. I can’t seem to get enough of their indie-pop-electronica fusion. “J-Boy”, from their recently released album “Ti Amo”, is today’s track of the day.
Bad Liar by Selena Gomez is today’s Track of the Day and if you give it a listen it’s clear to see why. A very simple but effective song with a minimalist approach. The song relies mainly on Selena’s vocals which are set against a quiet bass guitar backing track with occasional extras. A highly catchy and highly addictive listen.
I’ve never had the best impression of KSI and I’ve always seen him as arrogant and full of himself, but I have to admit that I do actually like his latest single Jump Around. A different take on the infamous classic Jump Around by House of Pain, but a good adaptation nevertheless. It’s just too damn catchy to ignore.
It’s time to spice things up on this blog, it’s called Broad Noise for a reason after all (to promote a variety of musical genres – duh). I’m going to start sharing specific songs a lot more frequently, kind of like a “Track of the day” but more of a “whenever I discover a track I quite like” kind of thing. And if it happens to have a good music video, then that’s just a bonus.
To start off we are going waaaay back to 1980 for Devo’s “Whip It”. A song that boasts a catchy rhythm. A song with a strange music video (men in weird hats and a cross-eyed girl with a gun is all I’m saying). And a song that’s well worth a listen. Enjoy!
