Are HAIM ok? – Today’s top 5 tracks

Lucifer’s Eyes – T.O.L.D.

Steel drums and indie have never sounded so good together. T.O.L.D. is the project of Daniel James Smith from Birmingham, UK, who released his debut album in 2016 but is still fairly unknown. He has a small following in the U.S. after Daniel moved to Los Angeles in 2014 but not much outside of the states. Lucifer’s Eyes is an excellent song to announce himself but it’s worth listening to his debut album to hear what T.O.L.D. offers when presented the chance to showcase an albums worth of tracks.

Sunset Lover – Petit Biscuit

Petit Biscuit, a producer from France, has been producing mellow dance tracks for what seems like the absolute fun of it. Sunset Lover gained some significant attention when it was released in 2016 as part of a 5 song E.P. which he released aged just 16. There’s some real potential in this one so look out for him in the future.

Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secure – Arctic Monkeys

There’s nothing quite like classic Arctic Monkeys. Songs like this are what the British public went crazy for and since then they have grown, adapted new styles and topped charts all over the world. But we still remember the raw old Arctic Monkeys when they were going through music-puberty and it’s definitely worth listening back and remembering how fresh their debut album sounded at the time.

Right Now – HAIM

HAIM have released a new single and… we’re not quite sure what to make of it. HAIM are an outstanding band by all accounts and their debut album Days Are Gone showed that they were the real deal, combined with incredible live performances and bucket loads of charisma it was impossible to not fall in love with them. This is the second single they have released this year after Want You Back which was better, but this one sounds just a little off or just not quite ready. Have a listen for yourself, it could be a grower and we all patiently await their second album in July with high hopes.

Splash – Subfocus ft. Coco

Subfocus was huge around 7 years ago and hasn’t released anything new since 2013 but this song featuring Coco is one of the best from his glory days. Any guesses who Coco is? That’s right, it’s the daughter of Sting who has her own successful music career and very well might feature in one of these lists soon. This song sounds exactly like the name Splash making good use of the cymbals throughout the drum n bass back track. It’s a real party song though, one to listen to before a big night out.
