I really liked this video; until this point, I loved the album but Sky’s always felt more like a made up figure. This awkward-gangster dancing and fake tough stuff kinda humanizes her for me. Shows that she has a sense of humour, I guess.
I’m glad she’s ditched the awkward canned strings and beats thing. This sounds less forced. I like.
I actually really enjoy this; Iggy doesn’t really make much of an impression but whenever they perform it their charisma just carries it because they’re so goddamn cool.
I’d be really happy with that. I’m 17 in Australia, and generally our festivals that welcome under 18s are few and far between; When they do come around, you’re expected to shell out $200 to go be crowded by bogans who don’t know or care who Cults are.
It’s not really as if Lorde was rolling in it before she released music though.
Holy shit! I need to learn this dance.
It’s been a top year for British music. Any of that first 6 + Savages would have been perfect.
I reckon a Grimes cover of ‘Girls on Film’ would be excellent.
Arctic Monkeys’ AM is definitely influenced by past sounds but they’re legitimately making waves with guitars. AM is number six (??) on the US Charts and Number 1 in the UK and Australia.
Oh, and Hannah Hunt by Vampire Weekend! It’s not exactly an anthem, but the relaxed-ness and summery vibe of it does it for me.
