Anyway, onto this week’s Songs You Should Hear…
Song: Back and Forth
Genre: Pop punk
Why You Should Hear It: Our friend from Liverpool is back with another high-octane, emotional banger to close out a monster 2022. Turn this one all the way up!
Genre: Hip hop/R&B/Soul
Why You Should Hear It: In this Ukranian duo’s own words: “The lyricism of ‘Sirens’ veers towards a stream of consciousness, reflecting on internal and external battles; meanwhile, a wistful melody sits comfortably underneath a gritty, intoxicating flow that immediately garners attention.”
Also, 100% of streaming proceeds will be donated to the cause of rebuilding Ukraine. Feel free to play this one on repeat!
Artist: Will Linley
Song: Last Call
Why You Should Hear It: Sent to us via our friends at °1824, this anthem from the Cape Town, South Africa native features a driving rock and roll energy combined with a bright pop sensibility, and brings us in to a love that hits hard and ends too soon.
