I absolutely adore this song, right from the first note. It kicks in so beautifully leading up to what is, in my opinion, one of the catchiest and powerful dance tunes ever.
This is such a tune - right from its wonderful synth and deep beat, to the searingly hot vocals from Daya.
The Chainsmokers first came to my attention with the single "Selfies". Such a leap from that to this there is just no comparison. They are actually a duo consisting of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, from America. Daya is also American - her real name Grace Martine Tandon.
This song is pure ingulgence. Synth, guitar and amazing vocals from a 17 year old singer!! It starts quiet, with a catchy and slightly haunting hook to pull you in. This isn't a typical formula dance track though - its more edgy, more atmospheric, and it builds much more appealingly into a crescendo that is very satisfying.
The video is interesting. Featuring the two Chainsmokers boys and Daya, it starts off with Daya looking moody/sultry singing to the duo as they approach in their car. Other girls dance around her, as she sings. As the music builds their car starts to bounce. It continues, until ultimately, they are thrown in the air from the violent bouncing and they stay in the air. Its an interesting video and it suits the song well.
Now, this is a hit of a song, already having reached number 2 in the UK singles chart. I would be amazed if you haven't already heard this, but nevertheless it had to be my choice this week.
If you haven't heard it, go take a listen. This is pure class. If you want more music, checkout My Music page here for loads more singles of the week and music stuff. Happy listening :)
