It's #MusicMonday, and we're back with a couple of tracks that'll make your ears perk up and maybe even earn you some street cred. So, let's dive in and explore these auditory delights from indie bands that deserve a spot on your playlist!
Track 1: Tres' Jolie by PONY
We're kicking things off with "Tres' Jolie" by PONY, a grunge-pop band hailing from Toronto. With a fusion of grunge's raw energy and pop's infectious melodies, this track will have you smirking as you nod along.
Sam Bielanski, the lead singer said this about Tres' Jolie:
Très Jolie” is obviously a love song. It’s about falling hard and fast, and allowing your love brain to trick you into believing that you’re in a healthier mental state than you truly are. I know I tend to hide the ways that I struggle in the beginning of relationships because everything else feels brand new. “Très Jolie” is about the conflicting emotions of falling in love with someone when you don’t quite love yourself yet.
We're looking forward to listening to the rest of their new album Velveteen (named after The Velveteen Rabbit) when it drops May 19th.
Track 2: Everything Sings by Savoir Adore
Next up is "Everything Sings" by Brooklyn-based pop group Savoir Adore. My favorite random Savoir Adore fact is that musical talent clearly runs in the family— the lead singer's dad is Jan Hammer, the composer of the Miami Vice theme song. This track's got some serious Panama Wedding vibes, making us want to put "All of the People" on repeat and daydream about summer playlists.
Savoir Adore's got a big back catalog to dig into. We still dig their song Dreamers.
We hope these tracks bring a little extra excitement to your week and satisfy your craving for some fresh tunes from the indie music scene. Share your thoughts on our picks, and don't hesitate to introduce us to your latest musical discoveries. We'll be back next week with more snarky, intelligent, and delightful tunes to share!
