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
How It Is - Majik
Chill electronic duo Majik recently released a new EP called Under the Influence and, continuing on our chill holdiays week, today we are going to talk about the blissfully relaxing "How It Is" (which you can check out below)
If "How It Is" does not relax you, I do not know what will--the heartfelt, chill vocals (that you are probably going to be singing along to right quick), the piano/percussion balance of the musical backing that keeps the track at a mellow tempo, and the production...Majik have balanced this track incredibly well, not letting it lapse into getting tired or repetitive, by subtly changing the song verse to verse, chorus to chorus.
I have been trying my best to fill this week in with brilliant, mellow tracks, and "How It Is" is that to a Tee--I know that I say it a lot, but this is one of those songs that is exactly what a hectic day (week, month...) needs, and if you're anything like me, you are going to probably end up with "How It Is" on repeat, nodding and singing along, and feeling that a bit of calm roll in.
If you dig "How It Is", be sure to check out the rest of Under the Influence, or wander back and check out some of their earlier singles like the cinematic "Save Me"
Here is the November Apple Music Playlist, and the November Spotify Playlist! I'm pretty happy with the flow on this one (and it was, for a change, a bit easier to put together thanks to how the tracks fit together). I also feel like this playlist has just the right amount of variation in it to make it awesome for any and all holiday travelling that you may have coming up...
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or search 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.
