so with all the work madness going on we missed out on the top 3 music songs of the week last week...but dana pulled through for me and i was finally able to find the time to get back into the groove. so voila, here they are!
1. “symphonies” (dan black) – paired with the track to “umbrella,” dan black is one of the most innovative artists of our time. attached to the robyn/kelis “all hearts tour” this summer, dan’s vision & sound is beyond our time. he mixes electro with rhythm and everything in between, creating a sound that’s sure to catch the ears of many. check out his full album “un.”
2. “ittle secrets” (passion pit) – nothing short of energy, the “higher” hook on this track is pure magic – seemingly fitted for clubs, radio, even that lazy day on the beach soaking up the sun. on repeat, all day everyday.
3. “dog days are over” (florence + the machine) – this is one in which you can feel the passion in lead vocalist Florence welch’s voice. a voice that reminds me slightly of that of adele’s, “dog days are over” from florence + the machine’s debut album “lungs” feels like summer + and screams happiness…a gorgeous intro gradually leading up to the infectious hook that’s taken the liking of this summer’s “eat pray love” film trailer. this single is not to miss!
