Now Playing: Ryn Weaver – OctoHate

 

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.

Sin Fang – Sunbeam

With the weather warming I feel like it’s time to get the ball rolling on some spring/summer tunes.  Don’t you?  Of course you do!

Ironically, this sunny track (first brought to my attention by the wonderful RPB) comes from Sin Fang, who are from – wait for it – Iceland.  Originally dubbed Sin Fang Bous – Sin Fang is the solo project of Seabear‘s Sindri Már Sigfússon (say that five times fast, or even say it at all).  Sunbeam, off the 2013 release Flowers, is like a layer-cake of sounds.  It moves quickly and frivilously, as one might while frolickling along the beach.  It’s fun and easy to listen to, with a super catchy hook.  Try not to start whistling along…seriously, you can’t.

If you enjoy this I seriously recommend checking out the whole album (it’s on Spotify to make things super easy) – while it’s not the most diverse thing in the world, it’s all fun and enjoyable, and will definitely get you in the mood for some serious sunshine.

Check out the band performing Sunbeam live from Seattle’s KEXP at a hostel in Iceland.
