    INDIA'S PICKS

    Ravyn Lenae - "Sticky"

    This R&B starlet will sting you right in your soul with her recognizable high-pitched vocals. "Sticky" is unlike any other song I'm listening to right now. The Chicago singer/songwriter's unique style will instantly pull anyone in.

    Litany - "Bedroom"

    Litany is one of those bands that just sparkles and shines pop. "Bedroom" is head-bobbingly good. With hints of 90's esque drums and synths, it's everything I want in a pop song.

    Easy Socks - "Baby Shut Up"

    Easy Socks is the pseudonym of Hale Sheffield from Brooklyn NY. She's just 18 years old, but her soulful, R&B style is mature. She's still on the come-up but after hearing her in my Discover Weekly via Spotify, I knew I had to add her to my 2018 playlist.

    Phoebe Bridgers - "Motion Sickness"

    The juxtaposition of hating someone while missing them terribly is exactly "Motion Sickness." Phoebe Bridges' detailed lyrics makes us feel like we are reading from a passage of her diary.

    CHRIS' PICKS

    Drab Majesty - "Dot in the Sky"

    I literally just started listening to Drab Majesty and have been playing this song on repeat for the last 24 hours. Modern gothic-inspired new-wave, it's just so rhythmic and moody.

    Black Marble - "Balancing"

    I hate to call another track moody, but this track is moody as hell, and I love it. I can't understand a single word vocalist Chris Stewart says, but I love the synthy gloominess.

    Japanese Breakfast - "Road Head"

    This track is just so dreamy, so multi-layered and captivating, it was unquestionably song of the day earlier this week. If you're making your way to Coachella this summer, be sure to catch Japanese Breakfast's set.

    Beach Slang - "Dirty Cigarettes"

    I just freaking love James Alex's vocals, they're so gritty, strained and full of emotion. The instrumentation on this track just crashes over you like waves and washes away everything else.

    The Postal Service - "Such Great Heights"

    I went on a trip down memory lane earlier this week and listened to this song, and god I remember why you couldn't escape this song in the mid-2000s. Someone please resurrect The Postal Service.
