“Push Up” – Brother Leo

Screen Shot 2018-11-16 at 4.46.43 PM.png

In case of an emergency where Bruno Mars can’t be there, break glass for this! Bruno Mars and Robin Thicke had a Swedish baby and he it! This song makes us want to work out in a field of poppies, while wearing something left over from a Scandinavian ice skating competition. It’s trippy and nostalgic. Sources say this isn’t even the big single that’s still on it’s way. #issabop

“Everything Goes (Wow)” – Broods

Screen Shot 2018-11-16 at 4.46.52 PM

What a casual, colorful jam. Perfect for blasting through the house on a crisp November morning (which is exactly what we did). “Everything Goes” fills the room with bright blues, warm oranges, festive greens and youthful yellows — a bright pallet for a beautiful day. It’s hard to imagine being in a band with your brother or sister. Bet you’d spend a lot of time ripping on each other’s clothes choices and farting on them. It works for Broods, though! #issabop

“Nervous Breakdown” – Girl Wilde

Screen Shot 2018-11-16 at 7.01.35 PM

“Nervous Breakdown” serves as a slightly more somber party anthem than her first song (“Bad Side,” a bop, released a few weeks ago). Girl Wilde calls it “bubblegum grunge;” a “masochistic love letter,” which she co-wrote with Mia Minichiello and Dave Burris. It’s full of drunkenly beautiful energy. This track shows a true picture of young love. “I wanted to really paint the picture of what it feels like to consciously make a bad decision.” Excited to see what this smoke show brings next. #issabop

“Heartbreak Drugs” – GOLDN

Screen Shot 2018-11-16 at 7.01.53 PM

This song brings a cool heat with sassy swagger undertones like hip hop dry ice. We’re always hesitant about songs with the word “drugs” in the title (cheesy)! But we like the vibe. The audio cotton candy with it’s catchy hi-end poppy lo-fi lumbering groove gives us repose. #issaight

“Movement” – Hozier

Screen Shot 2018-11-16 at 7.02.09 PM

The danciest bop of the week — but not like you think! Cue the black swan in us all… Hozier lands a sonically captivating, conceptually complex anthem that has us floating through pirouettes and leaping high like Polunin, the Ukranian ballet dancer who battles his alter-egos in the captivating visual (must watch). Top it off with Hozier’s sexy, raw AF vocal. We’re definitely moved. With soaring intensity, this song proves that Andrew Hozier-Byrne is shaping a legacy bigger than his original hit “Take Me to Church.” #issabop

“Blue Chips” – DaniLeigh

Screen Shot 2018-11-16 at 4.49.44 PM

DaniLeigh our girl! Why? It’s because she bosses up with rare class and long-time flavor. DaniLeigh is so that. In case you didn’t know, Dani has been up-and-coming for a long time because of how INCREDIBLY talented she is as an artist and performer. As a song, “Blue Chips” embodies her refined, mature point of view. She can express that she has no tolerance for those low-level bitches but at the same time she’s too in control to say something crass. Look out for a lot of bops from this stunna. #issabop

“La Di Da” – Lennon Stella

Screen Shot 2018-11-16 at 4.49.18 PM

These spooky harmonies are giving us the young chills. This song goes! Simple and succinct with drums that keeps us grooving. It’s a bop, bb. The chorus gets in your head like “Little Miss Muffet” when you were five. Is that a good or bad thing? Maybe you prefer “Itsy Bitsy Spider?” #issabop
