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.
Decided to start this week off with an indie pop track that takes elements from R&B, Hip Hop, and House, and blend that all together into a song that I wish I had when I was still spinning sets.
Check out "Bad Dreams" by Alec King & Danrell below:
"Bad Dreams" is a pitch-perfect house party track; it's not too fast (because let's face it, you like your furniture), but it's got a great beat to dance to (either close, or...well it's a house party, so closer), a bit of bounce, and a tail section featuring a surprisingly dope bit of guitar to help blend into your next song.
...and if you're not setting up a house party playlist, "Bad Dreams" is such a chill pop track that you could also use it to cruise a bit, or just sit on a patio/round a pool with your friends and a few drinks; it's almost a must-add to summer playlists for me, because of that versatility.
Alec King & Danrell have released a few other singles together as well, and I have to recommend "Visions" which has a bit of a C2C vibe to it, and yet still maintains that chill/dance balance that they killed in "Bad Dreams" (though "Visions" does trend a little harder during the breaks to dance).
Here's the July 2017 DSD Playlist! We're missing a few tracks this month, which is sad for the Apple Music folks, but you've still got a really solid list this month (if I do say so myself, which I do...*cough*)
We are also now on Spotify! Here is the link to the July '17 Spotify List (which features 1 more track than the Apple Music list).
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF 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
