It was a big week for music fans. To help keep you in the loop, ANDPOP’s Evan Ross rounds up some of the biggest tracks:
1) High By The Beach – Lana Del Rey
Shockingly, “High By The Beach” is the title of the latest track from Lana Del Rey’s upcoming Honeymoon — and not the summary of my recent vacation in Jamaica. In this song Lana returns to the things she’s best at: singing about drugs and heartbreak in California with a pastel colour palette.
2) Singalong – Karen O
The latest video from Karen O’s debut solo album Crush Songs is an adorable lo-fi piece that matches her adorable lo-fi album.
3) Leave A Trace – CHVRCHES
CHVRCHES continue to make some of the best synth pop out there with their latest release from their upcoming album Every Open Eye. The video is visually stunning and the lyrics literally gave me chills. This song (and I’m sure this album) are not to be missed!
4) Let It Happen – Tame Impala
Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker claims that this song is about giving in and allowing yourself to accept the chaos of this world. This video seems like it’s more about the perils of air travel, but this is still a great song and an intriguing video from the Australian band.
