DSD September 8, 2017: "Kill My Love" - Rain on Monday

Shaun Cordingley

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.

Kill My Love - Rain on Monday

It seems like it is pretty rare that I talk about a debut single on the Daily Song Drop, but "Kill My Love" from Swedish pop artist Rain on Monday got my attention thanks to it's cool combination of eras of soft rock/pop. 

Check out "Kill My Love" below: 



I really like the way that Rain on Monday (and producer Thomas Harsem) have layered a song together that feels both like a bit of modern indie pop rock, yet balanced in with a real feeling of an 1980s/early 90s Euro...near-shoegaze vibe that suits the vocals perfectly. I think the best part about that combination is that it does not slip into the melancholy atmosphere that a lot of tracks like this do--I'm all for melancholy, but "Kill My Love" offers something different, and I really appreciate that.

Plus, make sure you take a minute to appreciate the way the guitar and synth are layered; "Kill My Love" feels way brighter than the lyrics should let it, and that is something that, since the 80s, we have not gotten enough of. 

As I said above, this is Rain on Monday's debut single, so we have to just wait and see what he comes up with next. 


Actually managed to get the August 2017 DSD Playlist together on time (short turnaround with the first being a Friday)! This month we are only missing one (1) track, from AL-X the Great, as it is not available...anywhere other than where I put it in here, but it is tradition that we are missing something every month.

ICYMI (somehow) here are the July 2017 DSD PlaylistJune 2017 DSD Playlist, May 2017 DSD Playlist DSD Playlist - Apr 17DSD Playlist - Mar 17 , and there's also one kicking around for DSD Playlist - Feb 17 too!

We are also now on Spotify! Here is the link to the August '17 Spotify List OR, here's the whole playlist for the month right here: 

Not to mention the fact that we totally also have a June '17 Spotify List & a July '17 Spotify List

If you're looking for me to add these lists somewhere beyond Apple Music and Spotify (or you want some of the old lists on Spotify), you're going to have to convince me (hard) by chatting with me here, or on Twitter

If you're looking for more great music, are late to the party, or just want more theguysfrom.com in your day, here are the Apple Music playlists for:

 Apple Music Playlist for the Top 20 Songs of 2016

Dec 16/Jan 17
November 2016
 October 2016
 September 2016
There are other (earlier) playlists available for you if you check older "Tuesday Tunes" articles, or search on Apple Music itself. 

See you again next week!
