taylor swift - delicate
after taking herself way to seriously the past few videos, our girl taylor has reunited with director joseph kahn (again!) and is dancing her way back in our collective hearts with goofy movements and facial adorkability. it helps that this song is awesome too (one of our faves of last year). the only problem is the barefoot situation (LA is not clean taylor!) so hopefully she disinfected those feet by the end of the shoot!

mnek - tongue
THIS SONG IS SO FABULOUS!!! though we've been longtime fans of mnek, 'tongue' feels like a song by an artist totally embracing his power and going full steam whether we're ready for it or not! oh and he even dances in this video! turn it up and watch mnek come into his own.
john newman - fire in me
after taking a 2 year break, soulful baritone john newman comes back blazin with this insta catchy new single 'fire in me'. throw in an equally passionate video (who knew john could act!) and you've got the makings of a big hit that'll happily play through the summer. it's a welcome return and i can't wait to hear what else he's got up his sleeve this time around. nice one this!

metroplane feat bree runway - word of mouth
metroplane is actually the side project between dj/producers alex metric and aeroplane. after having club success with the insanely catchy 'bahp', they've now gone and added vocals by bree runway and is paving the way for a proper crossover dance pop success story. it definitely works cause i've been listening to this (loudly mind you) on repeat since discovering it a few days back. TURN IT UP!!!
wanna hear the original without bree's vocals? here is 'bahp'
metroplane - bahp
years & years - sanctify
it's the return of olly and his gang! the synth pop trio bring their 1st single 'sanctify' with a high concept video set in the futuristic palo santo where humans are captured to bring entertainment to androids (can't wait to see where the rest of the story will lead to). the song itself is an uber catchy electronic soul number that we've come to love so much from these guys! welcome back!!
simian mobile disco feat deep throat choir - hey sister
as part of a three part video series, 'hey sister' falls perfectly in the middle of the emotional dance odyssey and has the benefit of being voiced by the amazing deep throat choir. taken off their upcoming new album murmurations, simian mobile disco have released a dance track that is both wonderfully haunting and surprising! definitely my favorite song this week!

p!nk - whatever you want
giving us a look into pink's behind the scenes world, one forgets how much work goes into being an A-list performer of her caliber. culminating in her recent superbowl cough drop moment this video really is a celebration of a year in the life. oh what a life!
george ezra - pretty shining people
oh the build up to the insta catchy chorus of george ezra's new single 'pretty shining people' is just wondrous! i haven't been too enamored of the first few tracks from his upcoming 'staying at tamara's' album, but this just makes up for it all! we are indeed all right together! welcome back george!
lucy rose - all that fear
singer / songwriter lucy rose finally offers up her popular album track as a proper release for the fans. taken from the album 'something's changing' which seems to have an endless amount of gems to choose from, lucy is finishing up a successful world tour by finishing up in the US the next few weeks. the woman is great live so check her out if you get the chance!
Saturday, February 24, 2018
since it's the weekend, i felt it would be nice to offer a nice playlist of some current 'chilled' tracks that i've been listening to lately. it's a pretty diverse list mixed with indie bands, a sprinkle of kpop (god i love that suzy song!), singer songwriters and just flat out electro pop that we love so much! they're all quite wonderful so press play, experience some feels (ed sheeran & the boxer rebellion..oof!) and enjoy and chill on this eclectic batch!

brandi carlile - the joke
we've been in love with this song since last year and even christened it one of our fave songs of 2017 , but with the release of her new excellent album 'by the way i forgive you' it's nice to see an official video to the anthem! the visuals are pretty simple but emotionally effective, which definitely continues to give continued life to this battle cry of a song. LOVE it! #TheJokesOnThem
drake - god's plan
you gotta give it up to drake, spending almost 1 million on donations, grants and just flat out cash money gifts, he spends the whole 'god's plan' video dancing away like a happy santa. it's highly moving and simple and makes everyone love drake even more!

kendrick lamar, the weeknd - pray for me
kendrick lamar, jay rock, future, james blake - king's dead
OH MY GOSH, with the soundtrack officially out, this collab with rappers jay rock & future is kind of incredible!!! their phrases are sooo good and this video! the soundtrack just keeps on giving!!!
HOT SOUNDTRACK: bleachers - alfie's song (not so typical love song) / khalid & normani - love lies (OST love simon)
bleachers - alfie's song (not so typical love song) (OST love simon)
executive producing the soundtrack for the upcoming lgbt teenage rom com 'love simon', jack antonoff surprised fans with the 1st release from the collection via a link and it's a pop gem! featuring new songs by troye sivan, amy shark and a duet between 5th harmony's normani kordei & khalid, 'alfie's song' is the perfect kick off to what already looks like a sweet fun hit film for the spring!
[UPDATE 2/15: check out highly teased duet between khalid & fifth harmony's normani below!]
khalid & normani - love lies
frank ocean - moon river

lauv - getting over you
released as a surprise single on valentines day, singer/songwriter lauv just gave the heartbroken an anthem to lose themselves in. doesn't help that the synth pop ballad is so damn catchy and continues to show what a wonderful writer ari is. love this!!!

dodie - secret for the mad
it's really rare that a youtuber crosses over onto my radar, but i've been recently introduced to dodie (aka dorothy miranda "dodie" clark) who had a popular channel performing covers but now is creating buzz with her own creations. case in point, the current single 'secret for the mad' comes from her UK top 10 EP 'you' and is ballsy in that it's whole construct is just a simple piano note, layered vocal harmonies culminating in a really gorgeous choir at the end. i'm kind of obsessed! listen to dodie's other songs, cause they are pretty darn good and kicks off an exciting year for this singer/songwriter/youtuber!

cam - diane
[UPDATED 2/9: almost 5 months from it's audio release (and making it in our fave songs of last year list) cam FINALLY puts out an official video for her infidelity anthem that still sounds just as exciting and fresh after all these months! hopefully this video release also allows for the song to be a massive hit as well!]
here's what i wrote back in october:
what i've always loved about singer/songwriter cam is that you can hear the wide variety of influences in her music that definitely allows her to straddle various genres and not JUST 'country music'. with 'diane', you can just hear her love of joyous harmonies that made fleetwood mac and indigo girls such favorite singalong bands. what a wonderful song for your weekend (even though it's about a philanderer!)
Friday, February 09, 2018
cautious clay - cold war (acoustic)
after falling in love with cautious clay last month, josh has decided to offer a live version of his release 'cold war' and it's AMAZING!!! just press play and get drawn into his brilliant single which ends with a wonderful sax solo (A SAX SOLO!!!). easily my fave act of 2018 so far, hope he gets on your radar too!
calvin harris feat partynextdoor - nuh ready nuh ready
this is a nice surprise, after putting out the superstar collab project 'funk wav bounces vol 1', calvin is embarking on a whole new sound kicking off with this island jam led by partynextdoor. throw in the trippy 80's beta feel video and you've got yourself one of the insta catchy songs of the week! wind down to this people!!

cashmere cat, major lazer, tory lanez - miss you
set over a mellow tropical groove, this chill jam was originally going to be a track on tory lanez album, but was scrapped cause it just never quite sounded right. apparently it took a quick try right before a live performance that perfected this seemingly simple song. yaaay for quick tries cause it's just lovely!
[UPDATED with official video which isn't a good as the 'vertical' version]
petit biscuit feat lido - problems
petit biscuit (aka mehdi benjelloun) has not only come up in the past two years as a wonderful dance producer, but also released some gorgeous tracks that made it to our best songs of 2017 list. finally releasing a video for his collaboration with fellow dance producer lido (he got him to sing vocals!), this 18 year old talent is bound for bigger things in the coming year. LOVE this song!
born ruffians - miss you
marking the 3rd video of their video trilogy (directed by leah fay goldstein & peter dreimanis), born ruffians offer up a beautiful singalong heartbreak song that highlights their upcoming new album 'uncle, duke & the chief). love these guys! if you want to see parts 1&2 watch the videos below:
born ruffians - love too soon
born ruffians - forget me
once again, the amount of new songs being released on a weekly basis is pretty overwhelming. so i've gone ahead and collected some jams from either new artists or some buzzy tracks that you should have on your radar. of course these and loads more are on the wongieFM carmix 2018 playlist that is updated weekly (please follow it). but as a taster, check out this 18 song playlist first, hope you find something cool in the process!

p!nk - national anthem
battling a bad flu, there were rumors that pink struggled through her final dress rehearsal a few days back. but pink is a monster and she came out strong performing the national anthem in front of the world before the superbowl kicked off (and yes that was a throat lozenges she took out before singing ;)
justin timberlake - halftime show
you can criticize JT all you want about how he didn't bring janet jackson back or even throw in an n'sync gathering, but at the end of it all, the man sure knows how to throw a tight medley party that gets the audience going. plus he makes it look so easy! (loved the prince tribute midway too) all in all, a great job!
kylie minogue - dancing
[UPDATED with video!] it's the return of kylie!!!!!! the new easy on the ears pop jam gives us a world where kylie channels dolly parton if she were a country pop star today. co-written by amy wadge (ed sheeran) & sky adams (barns courtney) this number kicks off kylie's new album 'golden' which promises tracks that's on par with us celebrating 30 years of her in the business. this is a GREAT start!

justin timberlake - man of the woods
ok i have to say that i was really looking forward to listening to JT's country/ americana album, but it's pretty official that the misleading album promo is just a visual front and the album 'man of the woods' is still showcasing a man rooted in soul. the nice thing about the title track is that it's a catchy low key effort (it even has an acapella breakdown) that is a subtle change for both JT and producers the neptunes. there's alot more of these jams on the album, but hey, as long as it's not anything like the 1st two singles, i'm good! oh and the kitschy paul hunter / prettybird directed video is fun too.
chvrches - get out
it's been 3 years since chvrches have put out an album and their return was made with the help of super producer greg kurstin (adele), who is giving their synth sound an edgier spin. kicking off with the super catchy "get out", the promo video also features a possible collaboration with the national (look for the telephone number), which makes this upcoming album even more intriguing! welcome back!!!

p!nk - wild hearts can't be broken
released a few hours after her live performance on the grammys (see below), p!nk took to a simple white top and jeans approach for both versions giving us just the song to focus on. originally written for the film 'suffragette' (but didn't make the final cut), "wild hearts..." feels just as timely and inspirational these days and marks a perfect 3rd single release from her 'beautiful trauma' album. love it!
pink - wild hearts can't be broken (live @ grammys 2018)

justin timberlake feat chris stapleton - say something
now we're onto something! the collaboration between justin & chris stapleton was always going to be a possible highlight of the 'man of the woods' and it's proven true! performed in one take (la blogotheque's arturo perez jr goes big yo!) the song kicks in once chris stapleton adds his amazing vocals into the round culminating with a full soulful choir by the end. THIS should have been the leading single JT!!!

tracey thorn - queen
for those of us who swooned, cried and harmonised to everything but the girl back in the ahem.. 90's, we will forever be connected to the droll soothing vocals of tracey thorn. though the duo are allegedly on a permanent break, it's equally exciting to know they are still recording as solo artists. so imagine my TOTAL joy when tracey unleashed the 1st single off her new album 'record' and it's a boppy dance number to boot! still featuring some of the melancholia we love of her, turn it up for 'queen'!!!
Thursday, January 18, 2018
troye sivan - the good side
are you kidding me? two songs out and troye sivan has already put out two of my fave songs of 2018! this time giving us an acoustic number that is just wonderfully still and present. could this be one of the best albums of the year, we shall see, but troye is making a very good case of it!
justin timberlake - supplies
um... what is going on here? after the very meh 'filthy' THIS is the follow up track that's supposed to wow us into euphoria? where is the countrified man of the earth music that comes with his heavily stylised album teaser? i'm going to go with nope on this one. (though dave meyers sure knows how to make a meh song LOOK great!)

first aid kit - fireworks
swedish folk sisters klara and johanna söderberg (aka first aid kit) have continued their journey celebrating old skool country/americana in their latest album 'ruins'. releasing 'fireworks' as an album preview track late last year, they've now officially made it a proper single with a creepy 80's prom theme (with a rapture involved) accompanying video. we loved this song so much that it made our best of 2017 song list and remains a fave!! LOVE THIS SONG!

cautious clay- juliet + caeser / joshua tree
ooh it's always a good day when you discover a new act that shows up locked and ready with a sound that's distinctly theirs. at just 24 singer/songwriter josh has released a few singles that showcase his eclectic soulful sound with a twist of indie thrown in. it's lush really! turn up these two jams and look out for this brooklyn based performer when he embarks on live performances later this year. LOVE THIS!
