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.
Aimless - PLANET
Four-piece, Sydney, Australia based indie pop rock band PLANET have created one helluva song in "Aimless". Catchy as all get out, and filled with a combination of sounds that feel arena scaled, but with a relaxed, Oasis style structure and rhythm (especially with Matty Took's vocals), this is one of those tracks that, as soon as I heard it, I found the next available DSD slot so you could hear it too:
PLANET just have one of those sounds that I can't get out of my head once I hear it; "Aimless" is a near perfect song for the approaching warm weather (around here), as I feel like I would chill with this on a beach, or walking along the river in the sunshine in a heartbeat. They've managed to somehow have an upbeat feeling in the track, while at the same time it's chill.
At present, PLANET are playing shows in and around Australia, including at the amazingly named (praying it's a Simpsons reference) The Blurst of Times Festival in Brisbane at the end of the month--if you're lucky enough to be around there, I'd love to hear from you how PLANET's live show is as well...as that's a big-ass ocean away from me...
Oh so close to a complete list for the DSD Playlist - Mar 17 , but that's alright...there is over 80 minutes of indie awesomeness available for you right now....not to mention...in case you somehow missed it, here is last months DSD Playlist - Feb 17
Plus, if you're interested, there is also an Apple Music Playlist for the Top 20 Songs of 2016, where I put together my favourite tracks from last year.
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
