Songs of the week: The Sun Days, Mina Tindle, Chromeo, Courtney John

SoTW 2014.12 - The Sun Days - Get Him Off Your Mind

The Sun Days – Get Him Off Your Mind

There are many things in the world I do not understand; how they built pyramids? Why Pringles are so addictive?

Another to add to this list is how on earth The Sun Days have less than 1,000 likes on Facebook. Hailing from Sweden The Sun Days have been one of my favourite discoveries over the last 18 months or so. All three of the songs they have released to day have been exceptionally joyous celebrations of playful indie-pop. Piercing guitars mixed with sweet vocals creates a tasty cocktail of music to dance and fall in love with oh so easily.

My fingers, toes, arms and anything else I can find are crossed for them to have a fantastic 2015 and get all the success music of this quality deserves. They just need to make sure they pass through San Francisco (or London) for a couple of gigs before they get too big though!

Their Facebook description is simple; “Dance or Die”, I think that’s a solid philosophy to live by!

This record is fierce!

I’ll be honest… I have no idea what it is about however that doesn’t matter. It feels euphoric and has the power to energize the spirit. Shoot, the way Mina enunciates “ans-er” is worth listening to this on its own!

That trip to Rough Trade was really really good to me. Sorry about the Spotify link, couldn’t find it on any other platform to share.

Chromeo – Come Alive (Wax Motif Remix)

I have slept on Chromeo and their updated notion of funk for some time… not any more. I am probably the last person in the world to familiarise themselves with Chromeo so just enjoy this super-funky piece of dance music.

Courtney John – Lucky Man

I was lucky enough to catch a delightful feel good movie called Chef on last week’s flight. The soundtrack is freaking awesome and this little reggae song stuck in my head well after the movie finished and I was long landed. A 101% feel good record.
