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.
The Garden is Overgrown - CHAMPS
Sometimes, the first time I hear a song, I just know that I will regret it if I do not put it into the Daily Song Drop (and soon), and that is exactly what happened with the eclectic pop track "The Garden is Overgrown" by Isle of Wight pop duo CHAMPS.
Check out the official video below:
There are so few artists who make pop music like this anymore; "The Garden is Overgrown" feels like a combination of so many different eras, and types of pop music together that it feels like it shouldn't work...but it so does. You are probably going to pick up elements (read: influences) from everything from psychedlic, to ABBA, to MGMT...and that does not even cover it. The song is just like CHAMPS took all the pop music that they ever liked and distilled it into one, fun and funky song that is so easy to sing along with...this is a track that as soon as it makes its' way into a quirky indie film, is going to suddenly be everywhere.
And honestly? I hope that happens, as I am really intrigued to see what else CHAMPS comes up with as they develop their epic pop melting pot of sound.
Here's the June 2017 DSD Playlist! We're only missing one track this month (as is tradition)! This months list was actually one of the harder ones for me to put together into something that feels (at least sort of) cohesive...I'm not sure why, but I am happy with the way it turned out in the end!
I've also heard you, and here it is: theguysfrom playlists are now available on Spotify! You can find us by looking for theguysfrom on Spotify, click on this link for the June '17 Spotify List...I will also embed the last months' playlist on every Friday DSD.
Come on back tomorrow for our next Song of the Day!
