The Trouble With Us – Marcus Marr & Chet Faker
Marcus Marr + Chet Faker = beautiful, crazy-cool pop. I’m a sucker for a groove and this is a good ‘un.
Skeleton – Gabrielle Aplin
Punchy pop-rock with a slick vibe, finds a ballsy mid-ground somewhere between venom and broken-hearted indignation.
Style – Taylor Swift
Send help, I’ve been possessed by the (darn good) mainstream.
All Night – Slum Sociable
Sensuous, dance-influenced indie-pop that was probably written at 2am. Listen when in languid mood (perhaps after a glass or two of red).
I’m Growing A Beard Downstairs For Christmas – Kate Miller-Heike ft. The Beards
Amongst the piles of mass-produced, soulless Christmas cheese (*coughsKylieMinoguecoughs*), this gem flips the bird to all the fakery of modern society. And it’s catchy as all get-out.
