Death Team – Work

death-team-work

Swedish duo Death Team caught my ear last year with their catchy single “Messed Up,” an energetic and poppy electronic production with an addicting sound. “Work” is a solid follow-up that explores their sound with less of a party feel but just as much replay-ability. Electronic chords bounce around the background while Icona Pop-esque vocals lament the necessity of work and question the meaning of life – an intense theme set against a happy instrumental in an ironic dichotomy. Enjoy below!

Miracle and James Bay – Hold Back the River

This is my first time hearing either James Bay’s folksy vocals or Miracle’s production and rapping ability but I gotta say they’re making a good first impression. The song has a very pop-rap style but the beat is smooth and driving. The lyricism is solid and complements the song’s style well. Enjoy for an easy listen. I’m looking forward to more production from Miracle.
