Every Wednesday (late this week…) we will be featuring a Sweet Five! What’s a Sweet Five you may ask? Well I’ll drop you five sweet songs that you should listen to once a week, that will help you get over your hump-day and set sail towards the ever-nearing weekend! Ready? Okay!
Home Brew feat. Esther Stephens – Basketball Court
Blue Bird – Give Me Light
Up tempo, and sweet. You only have to hear the opening line to be taken in by the soft, catchy vocals of Marta Fiedler. This seven-piece definitely know just how to make a good song, and this is no exception. Filled with colourful lyrics and ear-catching instruments – this song does not miss a beat.
Deas Vail – Birds
Oh yes, another bird related song. But it’s okay – because it’s damn catchy and hella awesome. Lead singer Wesley Blaylock has been featured on TheRecordStache before solo – but not like this. This song is an epic ballad of lovelyness. The chorus is simply remarkable and this is a very powerful track.
Polar Bear Club – I’ll Never Leave New York
I know what you’re thinking – oh sweet! A band by polar bears! Sorry to disappoint in that aspect, but Polar Bear Club are actually quite talented. This is off their third album. These indie-rockers lay out this track just right, and the different sound of vocals Jimmy Stadt tops it all off. Very cool.
Sucré – Troubled Waters
