In the past 24 hours, something magical has happened. A summer track has emerged seemingly out of nowhere. Ryn Weaver’s new track OctoHate has taken the internet by storm, and with good reason. The all-star produced track (Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos, Charlie XCX, Benny Blaco, and Cashmere Cat) is everythign you could want in a summer pop song. Light, upbeat, catchy, strong vocals, easy to learn lyrics, etc.
This is currently the only track on Ryn Weaver’s Soundcloud page, but one can only hope many more of the same appear soon. In the meantime, I can’t wait to figure out how many listens it will take before I get sick of this…I have a feeling it’s going to be alot.
I mean seriously. This song. There are no words, except for bippity bop bap baweeee dop, and mo-o-or-or-orse.
Okay, to shed some light on what I’m talking about, this morning Gawker posted this article about two guys from Norway named Ylvis who have released what they dubbed “the song of the summer.” I, of course, was slightly dubious as to whether or not this claim was true, but let me tell you – it ABSOLUTELY is. The song is called “The Fox,” and that’s all I’m going to say, as there is simply no string of letters and sounds I can put together that can describe what you’re about to see.
The video is below. Watch it a million times, cause this shit is about to go mega viral. In fact, let’s play a fun game, at the time of this post the video has 291,469 views. How many does it have when you watch it? Let me know in the comments!
