Weekly Roundup: September 26


Every week the Melodic staff assembles a Weekly Roundup playlist of songs we can’t stop listening to.
Here are some of the highlights:

1. “amnesia” – earth2zoe
“A catchy breakup banger, ‘Amnesia’ uses biting pop choruses and sleek beats to get over someone. As earth2zoe attempts to cast her ex out of her life, she gives us lines like, ‘Stop, don’t come any closer / You won’t get any closure / I wish that I could just forget ya / I wish that I never met ya.’ It all leads up to her final request where she begs, ‘Don’t give me lies / Give me amnesia.'”
– Christine Sloman


2. “面纱 (VEIL)” – LAY
“Filled with addictive beats and vibrant vocals, ‘Veil’ was the perfect introduction to LAY’s latest EP ‘West.’ With five tracks (including an English and Chinese version of Veil), the EP is filled with dreamlike melodies over trap-pop beats, creating an addictive experience.”
– Angel Escobar


3.  “Operator Error” – We Are Scientists
“Containing vocals that dip and peak in all the right places and a breezy indie rock spirit, ‘Operator Error’ is another special We Are Scientists hit. It deals with the conflict of when to speak up vs when to stay quiet in conversation.”
– Christine Sloman


4. “100th meridian” – steeping
As a huge fan of Pavement this one caught my ear immediately; it’s obvious that steeping is a fan of Stephen Malkmus & Co. through his lyrics and the crawling, indie-rock nature of this track. The mix is subtle but really well done, and I love the bass line that knows exactly when to draw attention to itself.”
– Chelsea
