Carly Rae Jepsen performing at the Fall Classic

Carly Rae Jepsen – “Me And The Boys In The Band”

Carly Rae Jepsen is widely known for her fun and flirty style, and her newest single certainly fits that criteria. “Me and the Boys in the Band” features a funky backbeat as well as a strong dose of nostalgia for touring and being on the road. While most of us haven’t performed a world tour, this upbeat single is certainly relatable, as it’s ultimately about the fun summer memories you make with friends. The music video of Carly Rae and the band rocking out at home with their pets and family is also totally adorbs and well worth the watch.

Tomberlin – “Wasted”

Trying to tell someone how you feel about them is no easy task. Tomberlin effortlessly captures those feelings in her latest single “Wasted.” This folky single is both wistful and anticipatory with a strong drum beat that suggests maybe sharing your feelings won’t be so bad after all. But really, the true meaning is up for you to decide. After all, as Tomberlin stated in a press release about the single: “Sad song or summer banger? You tell me.”

Phoenix – “Identical”

It’s hard to believe that until now Phoenix hadn’t released a song since 2017, but their addictive new single “Identical” is worth the wait. Excitingly, they also announced that the single will be featured on Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film “On the Rocks” alongside an assembled soundtrack and entire score written by the band. The single “Identical” itself features Phoenix’s characteristic electronic beats accompanied with a late night neon lights groove track that makes us very excited to hear the rest of the score.

London Grammar – “Baby It’s You”

London Grammar is another band that we haven’t heard from in a while and their newest single “Baby It’s You” also does not disappoint. The dreamy single features an upbeat but muted trance-like backtrack emblematic of artists like Maggie Rogers in “Light On.” The single, as suggested by its title, is a love song revealing that nothing else really matters when you’ve got your eyes on one person. In this case, we’ve got our eyes on London Grammar and can’t wait for more.

Lomelda – “Hannah Sun”

Sometimes you just got to give the people what they want. Speaking on her latest track, Lomelda’s Hannah Read says, “This song was written for three maybe four listeners to hear, [b]ut boomer Hannah forgot how the internet works and performed it on YouTube. Now it is for everyone. I am glad that people want to listen to this song, but I don’t understand why they want to.” “Hannah Sun” is the latest preview of Lomelda’s upcoming album Hannah, out September 4.

Give it a spin below.
