Weekly Roundup: May 30


Every week the Melodic staff assembles a Weekly Roundup playlist of songs we can’t stop listening to. Whether you’re looking for something deep, or not-so-deep, we’ve got you covered.
Here are some of the highlights:

1. “Summer ’22” – Scott the Pisces ft. BINX
Curious what it would sound like if Len’s “Steal My Sunshine” and T Swift’s “22” got together and had a baby? Look no further than “Summer ’22” by Scott the Pisces and BINX. It may not be innovative but it’s SO fun and totally qualifies as a perfect summer song.


2. “Sunken Place” – ASJ 3 ft. Iverson Lewis
With a title that alludes to the horror film Get Out, the latest from ASJ 3 is everything a good alt/pop song should be: both dark and a bop. Iverson Lewis’ vocals provide a nice contrast to ASJ 3’s delivery and make this track one that you’ll be tempted to listen to again… and again…


3.  “Raised” – Jacy Jenkins ft. OLAN
The latest genre-bending single from Jacy Jenkins narrates the inner thoughts of someone who is attempting to escape a deep depression. With a repetitive line of “get up, get up, get up” running throughout the song, the listener can visualize a person who is stuck in bed, feeling physically unable to move due to intense grief. However, the track also sounds like a rebirth, and by the end you’re hopeful that the subject will make it through.


4. “Way I Go” – Gordi
After her collaboration with Troye Sivan (“Wait”), we were anxiously waiting (no pun intended) to hear what Gordi would release next. With “Way I Go” she certainly delivers. Though most of the song is only her vocal and an acoustic guitar it packs a heavy emotional punch and brings to mind Nico’s famous cover of “These Days” by Jackson Browne as a worthy comparison.


5. “Angelnumber 1210” – GOON
Dreamy and enchanting, this song strikes me as the perfect accompaniment to laying in the grass and snoozing under a bright blue summer sky. This isn’t the first time that I’ve said one of the Roundup picks could have been on an early 2000’s teen drama soundtrack, but I don’t care: if this song had been released in 2004 it would’ve fit comfortably on The O.C. (and that soundtrack rules).
