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. If you enjoy the track, please share it, so we can keep on talking about great new music!
Little Secrets - BUNT.
It has been quite a while since I talked about German EDM duo BUNT on theguysfrom.com (the first time being back in the old "Tuesday Tune" days over two years ago here, and then later with another single in October 2016), so I figure it is high time we talk about them again, and their cool, folk house style.
Check out the Official Lyric Video for "Little Secrets" below:
Do you like indie folk?
Great, Little Secrets (featuring DamienDamien) has the gruff, folksy vocals and lyrics you are looking for, including some brilliantly played acoustics, as well as that pitch perfect chorus that's not only easy to sing along to, but has that stomp-clap rhythm we need.
Do you like house/dance?
Great! "Little Secrets" takes all of those features of a great indie folk track and blends them with an infectious beat, layers upon layers of house and folk music to create a track that you just want to move to, and a pipe-flute drop that....look it's a flute-drop...add in some danceable banjo...and...yeah.
I love BUNT. I have been listening to them for two years now and the consistently release engaging, fun blends of dance and folk music, and "Little Secrets" is just that, with perhaps more of an overall folk feeling than some of their earlier work, but this is the work of a pair of artists who have really found their sound, and are starting to flourish.
If you're looking for more BUNT. in your day (and you're not like me and just keeping "Little Secrets" on repeat, then I have to say my other favourites are "Young Hearts (feat. Beginners)", "On My Way (feat. Leah Haywood)", and "Old Guitar"
Here is the January 2018 Apple Music Playlist, and the January 2018 Spotify Playlist for the Daily Song Drop. It seems like we are starting off the month with the traditional "one song is missing" (that being "Board It Up" by Nekokat), but all in all it's a pretty fun list to start the year off!
Plus it was not the usual soul-murdering December/January blended list that always drove me nuts every year with its' "two months" of songs to try and fit together.
Who does that?
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or search for theguysfrom on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
