Artist: Troye Sivan
Best Line: The rapture in the dark puts me at ease/the blind eye of the storm
Why Listen: It’s beautiful, haunting, lilting, but still has a killer beat and accents that will have you listening over and over again. It’s the kind of song you listen to while wandering the streets of a busy city in the dead of night.
Song: Where Are You Now (Cover)
Artist: Florence and the Machine
Best Line: Where are you now that I need you?
Why Listen: So, we’ve all heard the pop, head-bobbing collaboration between Diplo and the Biebs. Now, take the idea of that song and put it through a folksy, soulful, fantastic filter and you’ve got this cover. You can’t go wrong with Florence.
Artist: Disclosure ft. Lorde
Best Line: Pretty girls don’t know the things that I know
Why Listen: Well, Lorde. That should be reason enough. But this collaboration brings something that could be written off as every other pop ballad and gives it an interesting, dark sort of spin that’s rather lovely instead of overdone.
