Singles for the Weekend 11/13

It’s time to dig into the latest releases. The weekend is ripe with indie rock to lift your spirits. This week, we’ve got Cliffdiver, Kiwi Jr., Young Rising Sons, and more!

Cliffdiver ft. Daniel Basden – “Gas City”

Supportive friendships make life (and the world) better. This universal message is what fuels the new Cliffdiver single “Gas City”. The track features the vocals of new bandmate, Bri.

Kiwi Jr. – “Cooler Returns”

After releasing Football Money in January of 2020, Kiwi Jr. hasn’t slowed down. Their new record Cooler Returns lands early next year, and this single is the title track. Fun guitar, snappy beats, and nonchalance make for a post-punk romp.

DREAMERS ft. DeathbyRomy – “True Crime”

“True Crime” is a twisted pop rock love affair featuring DeathbyRomy.  It tells the tale of singer Nick Wold’s ritual experience in New Orleans.

Phoebe Bridgers feat. Rob Moose – “Kyoto (Copycat Killer Version)

This once upbeat sounding song morphs into the heartstring-puller it begs to be. In the hands of Rob Moose, the composition lingers gently around Bridgers’s delicate voice. Bridgers broke down her more cryptic lyrics in a recent Twitter post.

Young Rising Sons – “Happy”

It’s the weekend; lose yourself a little (safely, of course). “Happy” reflects on wanting to change old habits that take them to dark places. This one’s a fun indie rock-y lil track for driving around with the windows down.
