Friday Five: Troye Sivan, Foals, Alessia Cara, Anne-Marie and Nothing But Thieves

Boom! Just like that, it’s Friday! Hope you have excited plans for the weekend! Here are 5 songs you NEED to hear this!

1. “Youth” by Troye Sivan

I’m a massive fan of Troye and his music! He just released the music video for “Youth,” one of the standout tracks from his album, Blue Neighbourhood, which is ace!

2. “Lonely Hunter” by Foals

LOVE their album, What Went Down. I had “London Thunder” on repeat for weeks – it’s a cool, dark, ominous song that reminds me of “Mad World” by Gary Jules. While at the gym this week, “Lonely Hunter” came on and it stopped me in my tracks. I love this band and album!

3. “Wild Things” by Alessia Cara

Alessia Cara’s album is superb blend of pop and coolness. She has a style that’s all her own, and I’m in to it! There are many greats songs on the album, Know It All, but one of my faves is “Wild Things.” I love the sentiment of the song, which is continuation of the “anti-cool” anthem set by her lead single, “Here.” On “Wild Thing” she sings, “We brought our drum and this is how we dance. No mistakin’, we make our breaks, if you don’t like our 808s, then leave us alone, cause we don’t need your policies. We have no apologies for being…”

4. “Do It Right” by Anne-Marie

She’s amazing. She was fantastic with Rudimental when I saw them a few months back, and I’m digging her song “Do It Right.” It’s got some edge, but is a slick dance, R&B song beat and swag. Great low key party anthem!

5. “Trip Switch” by Nothing But Thieves

This is good! It reminds me of the better songs from MUSE, and for some reason, Keane comes to mind… not entirely sure why, but let’s go with it. It takes a moment for the song and first verse to build, but it’s worth it when the chorus hits.

What do you think of these 5 tracks? Let me know on Twitter!
