What We Are Listening To.

Mayday Parade-‘Look Up And See Infinity, Look Down And See Nothing’-Off of the new album Black Lines, this new song from the pop punk band is subdued but evocative. ‘Look Up And See Infinity…’ is a short song with a long name and an atypical lyric structure.

Listen: August Songs We Love.

FKA Twigs- I’m Your Doll– This eerie song is beautiful and strangely compelling. It shows the messy grey area where love and obsession become nearly indistinguishable.
