With the February air kicking off, we’re sure you’re already prepping for your Valentine’s Day festivities. Doesn’t matter if you’re planning a dinner party with friends, going out with your significant other or staying in for a lowkey night, we’ve got you covered with the mix perfect to jumpstart the love month.
Love – DEAN ft. Syd
In case you haven’t heard of this R&B crooner, DEAN is a South Korean singer and producer who’s making waves both in the Asian and Western territory with this smooth voice. For 2017, he collaborated with The Internet’s Syd to bring us a groovy track perfect to soundtrack our Valentine’s.
You Get Me So High – The Neighbourhood
It’s no surprise that The Neighbourhood is on a love-themed playlist. They’ve been making sensuous jams since their debut album and we still can’t get enough. This track comes from their latest EP release called HARD which could pass as an entire Valentine’s Day mini album in itself.
Television Romance – Pale Waves
Manchester quartet and breakthrough artists of the indie pop scene, Pale Waves are coming in hot with their debut release, All The Things I Never Said. Although this track wasn’t included in the EP, it has been quite the popular track along with their single, There’s A Honey. Fun fact: the music video was actually directed by The 1975’s Matty Healy.
Lovesick – Peace
Just in time for their comeback, the British gents from Peace are here with a classic track from their debut album, In Love. The upbeat track is a proclamation of love, reminiscent of 80s love songs that you can hear on a John Hughes film.
She Changes The Weather – Swim Deep
Perhaps one of the most popular songs of Swim Deep, this dreamy indie anthem was actually written for frontman Austin Williams’ then girlfriend, Ellie Rowsell of Wolf Alice. As if we don’t already love the shoegaze arrangement, the meaning behind it adds more to its romanticism.
Die For You – The Weeknd
Die For You is probably the most powerful ballad on The Weeknd’s hit record, Starboy and sentimental lyrics that we don’t always hear from Abel. The crooner himself revealed to Zane Lowe on an Apple Music interview that he wrote the track a week before the album’s release which only means it’s most likely about his ex, Bella Hadid.
I Dare You – The xx
Most fashion girls have probably already seen the spectacular music video for this. The project was in collaboration with Raf Simons and directed by Alasdair McLellan with stars Millie Bobby Brown and Paris Jackson joining in the cast. The track and visuals themselves are illustrations of young love and explains the feelings of dealing with strong infatuation. Watch out for The xx this Wednesday for their Manila run of their ‘I See You’ tour at the World Trade Center.
