The track I’ve dubbed the “song of my summer so far”, “Drag” by Dave Wave off the Headcase EP, now has a video, released today via new platform Apple Music. This will be the first Apple Music embed on IMF, so hopefully this embed of the “glistening, sun-kissed track” works for you, so you can follow along with Jackson Phillips as he wanders around his stomping grounds in the Bay Area.
I’ll admit, I’m phoning this one in a little bit. I just came out of the sun after a couple beers to get a handle on this overflowing inbox. These are the songs that rose to the top. Check out what’s #trending this week on the blogs, featuring Darwin Deez, Icona Pop and Nvdes.
Swedish synth-pop duo Icona Pop recently released a song called “First Time”, which not only rocks, but was the first song they ever wrote since forming in 2012. The song will appear on the new Emergency EP, out now on Big Beat Records.
Darwin Deez is having some great luck with his second listen from his fall release of Double Down, having Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe declare “Time Machine” his “World Record”.
Finally, I got a note recently from LA band Nvdes, who’s “chill indie dance music” is a perfect fit for this site. Check out “Unforgettable”.
Lanks‘ EP comprises six easy-listening tracks for those times when you just want to wind down, do some individual work at your desk, hang out with friends, or do anything for that matter. Lanks (Will Cuming) hails from Melbourne where he is also a member of a seven-member Indie Rock band called Farrow. In his solo endeavors he often emulates the sounds of Bon Iver, The xx, and Chet Faker to name a few, but is quickly making a name for himself with his bewitching falsettos and addicting ambient style.
Go ahead and click repeat now so you don’t feel abandoned when the sixth track comes to an end.
