Weekly Roundup: Oct 9


Every Monday, we bring you a playlist filled with tracks the Melodic staff has been listening to on repeat. Hear some of our latest obsessions below:

Kayls – “Hatch” A buzzy indie rock statement, “Hatch” captures Kayls in a place of longing. She wants more from her partner, singing, “We’ve been in the incubator too long.” She knows that it is time to enhance what they have, comparing the love that is already there to the feeling of being “under the shade” of trees or of swimming in an infinity pool. She imagines how much better things will be if they break out of their shell, singing through angsty vocals, “Tell me we can hatch this out.”
– Christine Sloman



Landon Sears, DJ Grumble – “Pool Day” For those of you not quite ready to fall into Pumpkin Spice Latte season, sip on this new alt hip-hop track from Landon Sears with DJ Grumble. “Pool Day” has a chill, summery vibe with a lo-fi, sexy melody reminiscent of Anderson .Paak and the track already has a place on 3 of my personal playlists.
– Cass Faulding


Felicia Lu – “Something Regrettable” German indie/electro-pop artist Felicia Lu has debuted the lead single, “Something Regrettable”, from her new album of the same name. This fast-paced single is an absolute firecracker and is the perfect track to pull listeners into the rest of the album. Lu speaks about the concept of the song: “I wrote ‘Something Regrettable’ about a past relationship with someone who treated you wrong. The feeling of relief after the grief and finally realizing you’re better off without that someone. The song is for everyone who is NOT missing their ex.”
– Brittany Muldoon


Adanna Duru – “if i was a boy ;)” A refreshingly witty and satirical take on the dynamics of modern relationships. The track serves up a delightful blend of humor and biting commentary, all set to an infectiously bouncy beat. The song draws inspiration from Beyonce’s “If I Were a Boy” and Ciara’s “Like a Boy,” using these influences as a foundation to explore the common experiences of women in relationships. Duru cleverly flips the script, imagining a world where women can exhibit the same behavior as men, letting loose with playful lyrics that take aim at the ways men sometimes let their partners down without consequence. Duru’s vocals are expertly performed and mixed on top of a very danceable instrumentation.
– Kobe Henderson
