Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Raincheck - Hannah Jane Lewis
I have to be honest: I was not feeling to well today...a bit down, and I started looking for a pick-me-up for the Daily Song Drop today, when I stumbled across "Raincheck" by Hannah Jane Lewis, and pretty much knew that it was going to end up being the song to share today.
Check it out below:
"Raincheck" is pure indie pop fun; it's well constructed, bright, a little bit flirtatious, and all centered around a modern-pop chorus (complete with electro-lifted hook) that is going to get stuck in your head probably before you're done hearing this track for the first time. As I was saying above, I was not having a good day, and yet by the end of "Raincheck" I was bobbing along and saying "Hey" right along with Lewis. Her vocals, by the way, are quite good, and she has an excellent voice for pop, thanks largely to the fact that there is a bright, energetic feel to every note she sings.
Basically, if you're not into pop, "Raincheck" is not going to do anything for you, but, if you are looking for a great pop track that you're not hearing on the radio (yet...hopefully), then you need to look no farther than here (or, check out the Raincheck (Jack Fickle Friends Remix) for a more light, early-night club (or maybe pre-club) version.
The September 2017 Apple Music Playlist and September 2017 Spotify Playlist are ready! As is tradition, the lists are missing a track ("To Do" (Be Yourself) by LEMZI), but I suppose that's just something that you're going to be used to be now considering the way this always seems to go.
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
