If Sofi Tukker didn’t already exist we would be into this. #issaflop
This sounds a lot like The Strokes, so it’s got that going for it. Clearly these guys can play instruments and make some good sounds. The transition between alt rock and sadboi rap is pretty effective. #issaight
This song recorded by Marshmello’s manager is corny AF. Nice try Moe. #issaflop
Make up your own mind before you read our reviews below — listen to this week’s playlist on Spotify (includes every song posted this week).
From the beginning, Bazzi defies expectations when he proves he can count to 4! “Paradise” sticks to the formula that’s worked so far, so like, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. But also, if our mom’s don’t know you, have you really made it yet? We hope he takes a few more risks with future releases because he has the potential to blast off for real. This song has a Miley Cyrus “We Can’t Stop” energy that we’ve been missing. #issabop
How to be cliche 101. Gashi and Kiddo have “cool” voices and slur their pseudo-sad lyrics just right to fit into the 2019 pop-scape. But like, so what. The boppiest bops stand out, and this just blends in. If they’re lucky this will fuel a couple boozy LA nights for some people. #issaight
