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.
Morphine - New Atlas
Sometimes I just feel like sharing a totally sing-along-able indie pop track, and "Morphine", the second single fromLiverpool's New Atlas is just that--I had written myself a note about this song a while back, and in going through them, went back and listened to the song again; I didn't recognize it right away, and then the chorus started, and I somehow knew all the of the words, and got a little smile on my face.
Check out the official video below:
"Morphine" is fun indie snyth-pop, pure and simple. It's catchy, and it's got a little bit of everything that makes a good indie pop song: the vocals are fun and upbeat, the energy of the track is excellently balanced between the verses and the chorus (and frankly, I'm listening to "Morphine" as I write this, and I still don't remember that it's not completely high-tempo--New Atlas' energy level never flags, even when the song slows, which is impressive).
What's also nice is "Morphine" is in and out: it's a burst of a song that does not overstay its' welcome as so much indie pop tends to--New Atlas constructed a nearly pitch-perfect, fun, pop song.
Recently New Atlas released their latest single "Twins" which is a bit more of a frenetic pop song, which I think you'll enjoy if you were looking for something even higher energy than "Morphine"...
The DSD Playlist - Apr 17 is now available! We are sadly missing one song from the last month (again), but I'm pretty happy with how this one all came together!
See you again tomorrow (with probably another completely different sounding song, so I can hate myself come Playlist time...)
