Happy new year! Here are our our first music picks of 2018. Here’s wishing we have a great year of amazing music!

Charli XCX – Pop 2
Pop 2 dropped a few weeks ago. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable full-length filled with a huge cast of guests such as Carly Rae Jepson, MØ, Tove Lo, Jay Park, Mykki Blanco and many more. While we are trying to wrap our heads around the difference between an “album” and a “mixtape”, it’s not that important what you call it care cos Charli XCX is pop royalty and her releases makes us dance.

 

Superorganism – ‘Everybody Wants To Be Famous’
An obvious reference to the generation obsessed with social media, ‘Everybody Wants To Be Famous’ is a pleasing electro pop number with dancefloor-friendly beats and melodies. Highly enjoyable and we look forward to their upcoming album!

 

Amateur Takes Control – ATC EP2
Last weekend, Amateur Takes Control celebrated the release of their new EP ATC EP2 with a concert at Esplanade Annexe. After a three-year break, the band returns and takes strides to move to a new era with this 4-track release. They still got it, and they got it better. A must-listen!
