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!
The Modern Man - Ginger Snaps
Today on the Daily Song Drop we have the return of Northampton's indie pop-rock artist Ginger Snaps (who first featured back in April 2017) with their latest release "The Modern Man", which you can check out below:
I have to say, I am glad that there are not a lot of artists out there who seem to take inspiration from Beck (just because what he does is way more complicated than it seems), but I adore the way that Ginger Snaps have ties to early, funky Beck, but put their own spin on it with bits of modern indie pop, and pop-rock to create a track in "The Modern Man" that is not just fun, but actually bothers to say something.
If there is one thing that I appreciate the hell out of Ginger Snaps for, is that they are an artist who put together engaging, fun pop-rock lyrics, and support it with an incredible barrage of (seemingly disparate) elements that all melt together to create a track in "The Modern Man" that gives me a smile every time I hear it.
If this is your first introduction to Ginger Snaps, then I have to recommend that you check out "Number Crunching" or the DJ-Funk styles of "Anorak ft. Vo Williams & DJ Jscience". Honestly if you are looking for a soundtrack for a good time, you're going to be hard pressed to do better than Ginger Snaps.
The February 2018 DSD Apple Music List and February 2018 DSD Spotify List are available! These ones where admittedly tricky as it is a short month (meaning there are fewer songs for me to build the set with), and we are also missing a couple from the lists: "Coward's Castle" by Monti and "highr" by buuzey. However, I have to say that I do enjoy the playlist this month, and I hope you will check it out (at the links above), and share it with your friends!
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.
