WASN'T that a very long January? Well, good news, it's now the end of February, meaning it's time for a new favourites post! I must say that it was extremely hard to just feature 5 songs this month. Let's just jump into it, shall we?

PS. This is a link to the montly playlist, but unless you're viewing it between mid-February and mid-March, then I would have updated it! Feel free to follow it x


I had the absolute pleasure of watching this talent live at the Broderline earlier on in the month. This is his first single of the year and so far so good. The mix of indie pop and electronic beats alongside his warm voice is perfect. This song definitely brings me joy.

4. Panic Room - AU/RA

This song popped up on my Release Radar and what probably caught my attention was the chorus. Its electronic bass beats alongside distorted vocals evoke the perfect 'panic' feeling. Au/Ra has impressive spotify numbers, and there is no doubt this will be another one of her successes.

3. Curve - KARA MARNI

I've been following Kara Marni for around a year now but I believe that this is the song that's going to make her a big hit. It's sensual, makes you want to dance, catchy and her voice is just splendid.

2. Get Out - CHVRCHES

This song is what made me truley hopeful that 2018 is going to be pop music's year. I know it's only February, but I know that this song will be in my Top 10 for 2018. Dare I say it's Chvrches' best song?

1. Make Me Feel - JANELLE MONÁE

Janelle Monáe has not only blessed us with one song this month, but TWO new relases. Aside from Make Me Feel, she also released Django Jane. The latter is more rap than the first. Both songs feature in her April release, Dirt Computer. I am completely aware that I've just said that Get Out will probably be in my 2018 Top 10, but I am certain that Make Me Feel will be in my Top 5! It's completely different to anything that's out there at the moment, from the funky rhythm to the guitar breakdowns to the undeniable Prince inspiration. And looking at the team behind it, no wonder it's good. Aside from Monáe, co-writers are Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter Mattias Larsson and Robin Fredriksson.

So that's it for this month. Feel free to follow the playlist (updated monthly) or my 'Best of 2018' playlist featuring all the Top 5s from each month. Until next month!
