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. If you enjoy the track, please share it, so we can keep on talking about great new music!
Opalite - Martin Luke Brown
London based indie singer/songrwriter Martin Luke Brown makes really cool, genre-bending pop tracks, as is the case with his most recent release "Opalite" (which you can check out below):
I love the percussion of "Opalite": the combination of synthetic and organic rhythm and beat gives such an interesting, and even chic backing to Brown's perfect for pop radio vocals. This is the sort of late-night, urban cool indie pop music that I absolutely love, and I think Brown nails it here because he is willing to combine a sort of soulful R&B vibe, with EDM elements, and the best of chill indie pop into one ridiculously addictive package.
If "Opalite" does not end up on your late-night drive/train riding, or winding down playlists, I have to say I'm not really sure why you read the Daily Song Drop, as this is a track that screams out to be on both (and I won't kid myself into thinking that that is not a genre of indie pop that I love talking about here).
For what feels like the first time ever, both the October 2017 Apple Music Playlist and the October '17 Spotify Playlist have every track we talked about on them.
That also, for some reason, meant that it was a list that took a little time for me to get together, but once I got the first few songs figured out (always tricky trying to nail down how to start) everything seemed to click right into place.
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for theguysfrom on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.
