THE DROP – SG LEWIS, ZARA LARSSON, & WALK THE MOON
The Drop is us cutting through the massive jungle of new music that’s been released over the last seven days. We sharpen our proverbial machetes and cut through the shit to get you to the content that you need to be listening to.
This is The Drop.
WALK THE MOON – “Eat Your Heart Out”
Walk The Moon is continuing 2019 with another new release. Their new single, “Eat Your Heart Out,” is bright and exciting, and completely etched with Walk The Moon’s favorite ‘80s inspired riffs. The track was previously written for their album, Talking Is Hard, but didn’t make the final cut; thank goodness it became a single, and now we have the colorful and catchy release. Walk The Moon is said to be releasing more music this year, along with making several festival appearances, which began at Firefly Music Festival in Delaware this past weekend.
Zara Larsson – “All The Time”
Zara Larsson is still on the up-and-coming in pop music with every new release, making her mark even clearer. Her new single, “All The Time,” is a synth-heavy ballad that brings together her dynamic vocals with a catchy groove to make it the perfect pop track. This new single has me hoping to see more from Larsson in the coming months.
TroyBoi & Skrillex – “WARLORDZ”
This track is definitely not for the easy listeners. This new trap heavy single from Troyboi and Skrillex deserves to have speakers turned all the way up, and a quality headbang or two. The song is loud, in your face, and an absolute instrumental monster. The two debuted the track on stage at Paradiso Festival, and fans finally got to witness the highly anticipated collab in person. This one is going to be finding its way on every festival stage all summer long.
Foster The People – “Imagination”
Foster The People brings the psychedelics on their new release, “Imagination.” A very Tame Impala influenced track makes this one the ideal summertime jam, and will have you swaying along to every wavy riff and trippy note.
Daya – “Left Me Yet”
Daya’s new single, “Left Me Yet,” takes listeners down a dark pop path through the insecurities of a relationship. While the lyrics are complex, the song takes on a whole vibe that I just can’t help but find myself moving along to— this song is absolutely my favorite track of the week. This is her second single from her upcoming sophomore album, which is set to be released later this year. I expect several more pop anthems prior to her album drop, so stay tuned for more from one of my favorites in pop music.
SG Lewis & Ruel – “Flames”
SG Lewis brought Dawn to life in the form of musical notes, and it is a true gem of releases. This was the third installment of his three-part album project titled Dusk, Dark, and Dawn. All three parts are extremely melodic and gets listeners in all of the feels; it is storytelling with sounds done masterfully. Dawn is the ending to a perfect saga of synths that has SG Lewis becoming one of my favorite DJs, and with the conclusion of Dawn, he really is making his mark on dance music.
