Well, it’s that time again, folks. The Linc playlist features a whole range of music this week, including the brand-new single from Paloma Faith, Warrior.
Coming straight from her most recent album, The Architect, Warrior hits all the notes you’d expect from a Paloma Faith pop ballad without feeling like the same old thing all over again.
But if that’s not really your style, we’ve got a proper rock smash hit this week in the form of Muse’s face-melting Mercy. On the flipside, if you’re looking for something a bit more dreamy, why not give Future Islands or Amanda Palmer and Jherek Bischoff a listen? Their soothing, synthy vibes are guaranteed to leave you feeling calm and relaxed, even if their lyrics lean more towards focusing on everything even remotely sad about life. But hey, that’s just synthpop, right?
Speaking of soothing, up and coming rapper SAINt JHN makes a double appearance this week, featuring alongside Teflon Saga in the upbeat yet surprisingly haunting Beretta Lake, as well as his own R&B infused hit, 3 Below. The guy’s definitely come a long way since his beginnings on Soundcloud and has already started preparations for a European tour. So if his tones take your fancy, maybe drop him a visit next year.
If 3am music is your jam then you’re going to love this playlist. In keeping with the theme so far, Matt DiMona hits the nail on the head when it comes to making the perfect post-sesh chillout song with Up All Night. Also hitting that sweet spot is James Quick’s Meeting Skylar and Troop Brand’s Riddle Me That, which are both absolute essentials for any Wednesday night cool down. So, when you’re crashed out in your kitchen in the early hours after Quack, making yourself sandwiches you know you can’t stomach, just whack the Linc Weekly playlist on. Trust me, you’ll need it.
Speaking of Quack, there’s nothing better than a solid helping of pop bangers to keep you going during deadline season. MKTO’s Classic is more than enough to keep your spirits high while you knuckle down on that essay you know you should already be writing. Go on, you know you need to.
