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!
It has been quite the cold winter here where I am, which is probably why I have been drawn to a lot of warm, summery tracks recently, like Australian producer Feather Touch's "The River" featuring Melborune pop artist Aeora.
Need a burst of summer too? Check the track out below:
I really like the way Feather Touch blends a laid back, tropical vibe with nu-disco elements to create instrumentation for this track which lends itself to create an atmosphere perfect for a warm summer night. This is combined with his really good vocals along the verses, combining with the sweetness of Aeora's chorus' to tell a story that feels like the perfect summer romance in a 4 minute song. This song really lives thanks to the combination of these two vocalists, and the way they swirl out of your speakers/headphones is intoxicating; I can almost forget that it's twenty below.
If this is your first introduction to Feather Touch, be sure to check out some of his earlier work, like the retro "Anything Goes - Feather Touch", or if you'd like more of Aeora's beautiful, radio pop ready voice, check out her most recent single, "Need You".
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!
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.
