Spotlight Report Top Picks #10

Featured Band: Bleachers

It’s been a while since we’ve done Spotlight Report Top Picks but now we’re at it again. Showcasing you the best top three tracks we’ve come across this week. We’ve had a lot of fun groovin’ to these tracks. Check them out below!

HAIM – “Want You Back”

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from three-piece indie pop trio HAIM. Their last record they released was their debut LP, Days Are Gone releasing bangers including “Don’t Save Me” and “Falling”. This time the girls are back with their newest single “Want You Back.” Rolling in some smooth goodness of pop with a slight tinge of R&B, we’re pretty excited to see the trio flourish in their upcoming sophomore record Something To Tell You. It has a release date on July 7 through Polydor Records.

Bleachers – “Don’t Take The Money”

If you love a little retro and the soundtrack of any John Hughes film ever made, then you’re going to love Bleachers. Known for his role as lead guitarist in indie rock band fun., Jack Antonoff has been a busy bee with this project, lovingly putting together a whopper of a debut record titled Strange Desire. Having strong influences from the greats of David Bowie and Peter Gabriel, Bleachers has a strong 1980’s pop and rock approach, with Antonoff’s latest single, “Don’t Take The Money” showcasing a contagious thrill of a beat. Antonoff will be releasing his sophomore record Gone Now on June 2 through RCA Records.

The Maine – “Black Butterflies & Déjà Vu”

The Maine has been part of the alternative scene for quite some time but we’ve loved the perfect balance of rock and pop they managed to create on their latest record Lovely, Little Lonely (released on April 7). Without any label support whatsoever, the five-piece released their sixth record and it’s packed with the catchiest tunes with incredible musicianship and eloquent lyrics. Our favourite song by far is “Black Butterflies & Déjà Vu”. The song is clearly one for the love birds out there, struggling to confess feelings to someone they’ve loved for a long time. We totally dig the Say Anything… vibes coming from here. The band is currently supporting All Time Low‘s Headlining Australian tour. Be sure to catch them live during the week if you haven’t already!
