Palaye Royale – Fucking With My Head
To a sucker for catchy choruses and Britpop/glam influences, two-parter album Boom Boom Room will simply never be enough. So thank Palaye Royale for churning out a new single less than a year after Side B’s release.
Despite the lack of lyrical content, the infectiously impassioned accusations has us willingly overlook the minor infraction. Fucking with my Head is an absolute banger that thrives on attitude alone; them being great fun to watch is just a bonus.
Toli Wild – Bad Guy
You can have too much of a good thing. With her admirable artistry and undeniable creativity, Billie Eilish may be one of few better pop artistes today, but her overplayed single has begun to grate on the ear.
Until this deathcore cover, that is. Beneath his solid vocal, Toli Wild’s brilliant arrangement of Bad Guy somehow made the annoying synth riff worth listening to again.
Larkin Poe – Runnin’ with the Devil
Blues duo, guitar legends, and all-around musical geniuses Larkin Poe will be performing at the Grand Prix in Singapore. With a mad line-up that includes Hans Zimmer! Where I live! Unfortunately, the wildly expensive tickets mean I will likely have to give them a miss.
Excuse me while I sob through these girls’ perfect everything. You can’t hear tears over amazing Van Halen covers.
