5 Hot Tracks For Placement

 

Chateau
ANGUS & JULIA STONE

 

Australian brother and sister indie duo, Angus and Julia Stone return with an enchanting escape to the iconic Los Angeles hotel, Chateau Marmont. Chateau is a gorgeous testimonial to the sense of freedom of a brand new love and the dream of running away from reality. Embraced in poppy synth accents, a sensual four-on-the-floor beat, and folky guitar riffs, their signature vocal interplay is smooth as silk. 

 
 
 

Hold Me Down
Daniel Caesar

 

Alluring Toronto singer/songwriter, Daniel Caesar has a tremendous capacity for organic storytelling and radiant transparency. Citing melodic and lyric elements from a Kirk Franklin gospel cut circa 1998, Hold Me Down seeks loyalty and acknowledgment of love from the scattered woman in his life. The airy female vocalizations shape the character of his lover and offer a conversational vulnerability.

 

All ON MY MIND
ANDERSON EAST

 

Breakout Alabama singer/songwriter, Anderson East delivers a savage and passionate vocal performance about being infatuated with a rebellious woman. Co-written by Ed Sheeran and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid,  All On My Mind is powerful and dramatic by design. Triumphant string accents, slinky guitar, and the warmth of the electric piano complete this blues pop statement.

 
 
 

Come meh Way
SUDAN ARCHIVES

 

Come Meh Way is a tantalizing and experimental fusion of West African rhythms and modern looping techniques. Mesmerizing violin lines, distorted chant-like vocal stylings, tasteful tambourine, and lively handclaps lay the foundation for Sudan Archives' eclectic and texturally stunning offering.

 

THORNS
Bonnie MCKEE

 

Notoriously underrated candy pop hit maker explores a darker path and a garden of guarded emotions in love. Thorns features sparse yet effective PBR&B production courtesy of Kyle Shearer (Carly Rae Jepsen) and Nate Campany (Tove Lo). With punch and finesse, Bonnie McKee delivers monster hooks and an enviably executed rose metaphor.
