Singles For The Weekend- 8/14

The school year is beginning here at RSU, use these tracks to start the year off strong.

Winnetka Bowling League- “Come To The Beach”

            While this song doesn’t give the best quarantine advice, Winnetka Bowling League says they wrote the song pre-pandemic, and hopes it helps get people through until we can actually go to the beach again.

Slow Pulp- “Falling Apart”

The latest single on Slow Pulp’s new album Moveys is the result of multiple catastrophes in the life of their lead singer, Emily Massey. The song hits right at home by bringing up a feeling many of us have learned well as of recent, falling apart when pretending everything is okay stops working.

Bahamas- “Own Alone”

            It’s difficult not to balter about while listening to this track. The upbeat tempo sticks inside your head in the most wonderful way.

James Bay- “Chew On My Heart- Acoustic” 

            Like James Bay? Like acoustic songs? Why not both? In his newest single, James Bay brings a different sound to one of his songs that he released last month.

The Happy Fits- “Moving”

            Ever wanted to see a grapefruit play the drums? How about a cello? Paired with this single comes a citrus-filled music video that is absolutely worth checking out. This song will appear on the album What Could Be Better, expected on August 28.

Sylvan Esso- “Rooftop Dancing” 

            While a song about dancing, it’s less of the dance tempo one would expect and leans more towards a folk-style feeling. The duo says “Rooftop Dancing is about the excitement of being part of a collective humming whole — a city that contains multitudes — with your small story shining softly amidst it.”

Helena Deland- “Someone New”

This is the first track released that comes from an album of the same name that’s to be released October 16. Deland sings about how she’s tired of reinventing herself for others, and she’s discovering for herself who she is.
