Indie electronic stunners Golding have recently announced their neoteric new single Boxing Underwater, a meandering, expressive track that ponders – will the magnetic force that drew two people together still exist when those people are sober? Co-written with beloved pop songwriter Jarryd James and featuring the breathtakingly understated vocals of Cailin Russo, Boxing Underwater is out now!
Mo Money Mo Problems by The Notorious B.I.G., Mase, Diddy
Jay: This track is everything I wish music was today. All I’ve ever wanted was an album of songs like this. Something about the energy of this track makes me feel like I can do anything. In my opinion it is one of the best Diddy productions of all time.
She Wants To Move – N.E.R.D
Matt: This song just has a crazy infectious groove and feel to it that makes you want to dance, no matter what mood you’re in. Every single part is so well thought out and tasty, and the way the whole song is arranged and put together is PERFECT. I really love how the guitar tone is so wrong and weird that it’s right, and how every tone and texture compliments the other. Also, that lyric “her ass is a spaceship, I want to ride” is pretty damn funny. Pharrell is a genius.
Pyramids By Frank Ocean
Jay: I could write an essay on this track. But my favourite moment is at about 5 minutes where the whole vibe completely changes. It’s almost like he had two great tracks and found the most seamless way to connect them. This track is a journey.
Sweatpants – Childish Gambino
Matt: This track has such a heavy and thick vibe sonically and a lyrical swagger that only Gambino can pull off. It has one of my favourite lyrics too “Don’t be mad cause I’m doing me better than you doing you” it’s such a “fuck you” to people that are jealous of your success, and the fact that he repeats that line like three times… heavy haha. Donald Glover can do no wrong imo.
American Girl by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Jay: This song takes me back to my brother’s room when I was a kid in California. I remember him showing me this song and explaining to me the heavy influence that Tom Petty had on Blink182. From the Bass lines to the guitar rhythm in the intro. This song takes me back.
