This week I had a tough time deciding on what should be my Tune Up song as I was stuck between two. I flipped a coin and tada! Although, the other one will probably appear next week – but I’ll keep it a secret until then.
Today it’s “Overdose” by Little Daylight – their first ever official single.
A trio from Brooklyn composed of Nikki Taylor, Matt Lewkowicz, and Eric Zeiler, they got their rise to fame thanks to covers and remixes of already loved electro-pop songs (think Passion Pit) and soon they were booking gigs across the nation. Reminiscent of Phoenix or even more similar of CHVRCHES with the soft soprano female powered vocals. In 2014 they released their debut album, Hello Memory to good reviews.
I found Little Daylight thanks to somebody I follow on Tumblr and have since consumed their album at rapid speed. It’s been a perfect album for summer drives with pulsing beats and catchy hooks wrapped in a nice little rock-pop indie package.
So let me introduce “Overdose”, by Little Daylight.
It mixes pop and synth beats to create an entrancing sound laced with Taylor’s airy vocals. The combination makes a breezy yet alluring sound that leaves you forgetting the song is actually entitled “Overdose”.
I choose the lyric video because I’ve found out I have a few readers who love my music recs, but will get instantly turned off if the video is weird. I quote “it just screams indie hipster shit” so here’s to you – you know exactly who you are and you can enjoy the song without judgement. The official video was a bit vivid and imaginative, even I’ll admit that one.
Their music has been spotlighted on many popular television shows already including Pretty Little Liars (which actually usually has an ace soundtrack – go figure.) Not bad for a band just starting out.
What is your favorite television show to find good new music?
Until next time,
