“Superstitious Heart” – Little Boots
British electro-pop singer Little Boots is not only totally adorable, but has a great way of making catchy, dance inspired pop music while showing off her amazing set of pipes. She recently released a four-song vinyl record under the name “LB,” which included her new track “Superstitious Heart.” It’s more ambient than some of her older music, but her voice still carries well and shows off her different side.
“I Was a Fool” – Tegan and Sara
Canadian indie-pop twins Tegan and Sara constantly surprise us with different twists to their sound. This time around, the girls venture into pop ballad territory with a song about a past relationship. Not to worry, you’ll still hear the electronic elements they’ve been infusing their tracks with lately, but the single is extremely radio friendly with a piano playing throughout. Their new album Heartthrob hits stores Jan. 29.
Suit and Tie – Justin Timberlake
Break out those old N’Sync posters everyone, Justin Timberlake is back in a suit and tie, just how we like him. His first new track in five years features rap mogul Jay-Z and reminds us that there’s more to pop music than Justin Bieber and One Direction. JT definitely grew up during his hiatus and returns with a more mature, R&B infused sound. Sexy is back once again.
“What About Us” – The Saturdays
British girl group The Saturdays just released the music video for their new single featuring Sean Paul, and lemme tell ya, the girls look great. In the video, they’re pretty much living the life, prancing around L.A. in little denim shorts that are to die for, and looking beautiful all around. Who can blame them – the girls are finally making it big in the US and even have their own TV show.
“Miracle Mile” – Cold War Kids
California indie rockers Cold War Kids are gearing up to released a new album, Dear Miss Lonely Hearts. Their first single off the new album is a jangly piano and guitar charged track that sounds like it’s straight out of the sunshine state. If you have the winter blues like I do, turn this song on and bring a little light back into your life.
