Picks of the Week 15F.5
Each week, Dartbeat asks a group of musically inclined students to recommend their favorite songs of the week. We then share a few of those tracks. Enjoy!
ON AN ON — Drifting (RAC Remix)
Koryn Ternes: No part of this new mix fails to disappoint.ON AN ON's "Drifting" was already a hit, and pretty much everything that RAC touches turns to gold. RAC expands upon the original track, allowing both artists' creative abilities to shine through. Eiesland's voice is beautifully showcased as the song builds and fades, and RAC really transforms the middle portion of the song. This track will appear on the "Drifting" remix EP due out in November.
Filligar — Motor Shine
Katie Hake: This song was released in the summer, but I consider thissingle off Filligar'slatest album “Keepsakes ofthe Interior” (2015) to be a solid autumnal indie rock jam.Three of the four bandmates are brothers and Dartmouth grads, which I'd like to think gives me an extra boost when listening to "Motor Shine" while studying for midterms.
Olivver the Kid — Lucy (Hurt People Hurt People)
Grace Miller: The vibes are a little dark this week, but so are midterms. I discovered this song on Spotify a couple weeks ago and still am not over it. It makes me want to go for a run/punch something/maybe finish my pset in time? Olivver the Kiddoesn’t have a Wikipedia page, plus his songs are only 99 cents on iTunes, so you know he’s ~*undiscovered*~ and you can put him on whatever indie playlist you are trying to impress your friends with.
