I had no idea who this artist was, until “Youngblood” popped up on a Spotify playlist for me. I was instantly struck by the melancholy tone contrasted by the insanely infectuous pop hooks, tasty bassline, and snappy snare. Like a lot of great pop songs, it sings about a sad topic, but with a beat you can dance to.
I’m no dancer, but I do love a well-crafted pop tune. The video is also pretty neat, too, with some retro 50s imagery and outfits.
Give it a listen if you’re sad and want to keep feeling that way, or if you’re happy and want to keep feeling that way.
