Welcome to your second serving of Seersha’s Seven. Each week I playlist 7 new songs via my #musicmondayz Soundcloud playlist, and once a month I compile my favorite tracks from the past 4 weeks for Libro Musica. April’s set features an eclectic mix of pure pop, vibey electronic tracks, and moody indie pop. I hope you find a new jam!
X&Y — All Night
X&Y figured out how to fuse infectious pop with a melancholy undertone and snarky edge. The killer bass line, treatment of the chorus vocals and that tambourine got me playing this song all night.
Spinnin’ Records — Univz – Stardust [OUT NOW]
I’m not a huge future bass connoisseur but Univz (Ukrainian producer/DJ Diana Reb) kills it on this track. I love her sound choices; the vocal has a Grimes-esque quality to me. I can listen over and over again and hear something new every time.
SwuM. — I Miss u
The initial build up on this track pulls me in and at about 50 seconds, totally I’m caught up. The sense of space in the mix and juxtaposition of galactic and organic-feeling sounds really gets me. Ending with the sound of the approaching storm? Perfection.
LAOISE — Halfway
Total disclaimer, I may be partial to this artist because of her Irish name that rhymes with Seersha. Her delicate voice is gorgeous; really dig the songwriting style and word choice (rhyming déjà vu and Timbuktu?–bold). Traditional Irish folk sensibility meets indie electropop.
AH-MER-AH-SU — Klonopin
I’m a sucker for a children’s rhyme in a pop song. A hypnotizing bell-synth riff and minimal upfront beat are the perfect stage for Ah-Mer-Ah-Su’s vocal layers. If you have to adult and can’t hide under the covers today, hiding inside this track is a good next option.
Check back next month for the May edition of Seersha’s Seven.
