I love a cappella. Hearing the purity of tone, when vocal harmonies blend effortlessly… that is something I really appreciate. When a group like Pentatonix takes the art of a cappella to another level, amazing things happen! I love this cover/mash-up because of the mix of a current hit Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” with one of the old-school hits of back in my day, Aaliyah’s “Are You That Somebody”.
Prior to a Kim Churchill show, the sound person was playing so many tracks from Kurt Vile’s 2015 album that after shazamming them all, I had to buy the whole album. This track is particularly catchy.
Reminiscing about my youth with a friend, this song came to mind.
Because not only does the world always need more kindness… the lyrics and chords just make this song so much more! Glad for new Frank Turner music, can’t wait until the whole album is released!
There is just something about a rhythmic bass line.
Enjoying the evolution of sound from 5SOS, particularly the addition of keys, which goes a bit more pop than past albums but is still a song you can easily see performed by the band themselves, with instruments live as opposed to singing relegated to a backing instrumental production track.
The hair. The guitar kicks.
