Maroon 5 ft. Julia Michaels - "Help Me Out"
Alright, honestly, nothing makes me happier than bubblegum pop. And anything Julia Michaels touches turns to gold. It's surprisingly subdued sonically, and their voices blend together perfectly.
NF - "Green Lights"
Okay, this one's a little different than Lorde's "Green Light." It's an epic and dark rap song from Michigan rapper NF, who rode alongside Post Malone, Cardi B, Calvin Harris and more in Billboard's Top 10 R&B/Hip Hop Single Sales earlier this year.
Lauv - "Easy Love"
We love Lauv and his super smooth and bassy new song "Easy Love." Read our interview with him here
SHAED - "Lonesome"
Pop super trio SHAED just
dropped this song and we are so glad they did. Singer Chelsea Lee's voice never fails to give us some serious chills. Also, they will be headlining Bands and Brews in Brooklyn on 10/14
, so I'm mentally preparing for that with this heavy hitter.
Cults - "Offering"
HAPPY RELEASE DAY CULTS! "Offering" is the title track off of the album they just released today, and we may or may not be dropping a new session with them pretty soon...
The Knocks, Absofacto - "Trouble"
"Trouble" is so undeniable catchy, it makes me want to dance but it also makes me want to fly over to the west coast real quick and drive down the PCH in a convertible. That could happen real soon, right? Right.
Sofi Tukker, NERVO, The Knocks, Alisa Ueno - "Best Friend"
Guys, it's Friday. We need this right now.
Paramore - "Hate To See Your Heart Break"
We caught Paramore at Radio City Music Hall earlier this week
and this cut from the band's self-titled was a super magical moment, as fans lit up the venue with their cell phones. I haven't been able to stop listening to it since.
Tove Lo - "Disco Tits"
This song totally made it into another week's In Our Ears but I don't care!
Yes, "Disco Tits" is still in rotation and Tove Lo is queen of the world
Kelela - "LMK"
Kelela released her very hyped up album Take Me Apart
today and it most certainly live up to the hype.
TOKiMONSTA, Selah Sue - "I Wish I Could"
TOKiMONSTA also just released an album today, Lune Rouge,
and it's full of tons of ragers like this one. Those powerhouse vocals and crystal clear beat that cuts like a knife... We are obsessed.
Chelsea Cutler - "Snow In October"
Chelsea Cutler just released her EP Snow In October.
Her raspy voice and the mix of acoustic guitar and electronic beats is stunning. You can hear more stripped down versions of her songs in our recent session
with the Ultra singer.
