If you were caught up in Kesha coming to town this week, you may have missed last week’s best songs. Not to worry, we’re here to catch you quicker than ever. This week, we’re featuring new tracks from The Weeknd and Daft Punk, Kings of Leon, Lucius, STRFKR and Bloc Party.
The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk
If there was ever a dream collaboration, it might as well be Daft Punk and The Weeknd. This song is a seriously hypnotic downtempo number that will no doubt get you dancing in no time.
Kings of Leon
Kings of Leon’s latest track pays homage to simpler times—before fame really took over. “WALLS” is a gorgeous ballad that strips back any anthemic cheesiness the band had in the past.
Jess and Holly’s vocals go together in perfect harmony on the sweetly-tinged track “Pulling Teeth.” There’s a little bit of ’80s that runs through the song that makes it sound absolutely perfect.
Whenever STRFKR makes music, it feels like the galaxy expands a little bit. With “Open Your Eyes,” the band once again sounds like it’s coming from another dimension.
Bloc Party goes back to basics with its latest song “Stunt Queen.” The synth beats strong throughout the pop track, which makes it extra catchy.
