“Two-thirds Danish New Politics have had my heart for a while now with their fancy dance moves and sick tunes, but combine them with Andrew McMahon and my high school heart can’t handle it. Their collab of New Politics’ Girl Crush was recorded while the two were on tour together and is an absolute ear blessing.”

18. “One of Them Will Destroy the Other” – Mayday Parade feat. Dan Lambton
(Hannah Hines)


19. “Face The Sun” – Miguel ft. Lenny Kravitz (Dana Reandelar)
