Two Door Cinema Club deliver a bouncy, synth-infused listen on the track ‘Bad Decisions’, taken from their latest record which dropped to UK chart success last year.

‘Runnin’ Out of Luck’ is one of the latest singles from Alex Cameron, who has been making a buzz in the Australian pop scene for his testosterone-fuelled lyrics while taking on the persona of a failed entertainer.

Also featured is “Of the Night” – the Bastille rendition of Corona’s club classic.

Another classic song on our playlist is Electric Light Orchestra’s ‘Turn to Stone’, from their legendary 1977 record Out of the Blue. This album came at a time where Jeff Lynne and his orchestra had found their unique sound – and their confidence shines through on this song.

Tommy Genesis’ self-titled single, released last month, will be a hit amongst trap fans – the female rapper’s seductive voice melds well with some dark, murky and skeletal production, with punchy drum beats giving the track some much-needed crispness. I wouldn’t be surprised to start seeing her work becoming more recognised in the mainstream in the future.

For the pop-rock fans: try out the song ‘Feel Good’ by Neon Trees.

The Fratellis’ seminal album Costello Music is instantly recognisable amongst indie rock enthusiasts – their incredibly popular track ‘Whistle for the Choir’ is proudly featured on the playlist.

Finally, there’s ‘School’ by Supertramp, whose discography I’ve recently gotten around to listening to. The talents of keyboardist Rick Davies are very prominent here, as he plays with an energy that was lost on a previous project he was involved in. This creative freedom would then cause the band to dominate a corner of the rock scene throughout the 70s.

You can now stream our playlist here on Spotify. Here’s to a good week!
