Anyway here’s the usual six-track playlist of the month.
The 1975 – Chocolate
The intro hook reminds me of the early ’90s (Ace of Base – The Sign). The vocalist’s hair reminds me of the mid ’90s. The delivery reminds me of boy bands from the late ’90s. You wouldn’t think this is from a Mancunian indie-rock band would you? Off their third (and my favourite) EP ‘Music for Cars‘, this track is catchy, kitschy, happy-go-lucky. Just like the ’90s.
Jose Gonzalez and his band are releasing a new album end of this month and this is the second single released off it. It’s as laidback as Mr Gonzalez himself but an awesome tune for sunny days and getaways, too.
Don’t you feel uplifted everytime you listen to a song by this band? There were some feel good folk-rock tunes off their previous LPs such as 5 Years Time, First Days of Spring, etc. Oh and how could we forget the ‘pay it forward’-inspired video for Give A Little Love? This track has a different tone from the usual, but it still makes you feel really good after.
