SONG OF THE DAY: Seven Lions ft Kerli – Worlds Apart

There’s something magical that is created when two creative people work together. Jeff Montalvo a/k/a Seven Lions is known for harder electro and dubstep production with hints of trance. As a singer/songwriter, Kerli has a unique voice and a sound that transforms to fit any style of production. Together the two have constructed “Worlds Apart,” which brings dubstep and progressive elements together and adds a bit of a pretty pop feel to smooth them over. It’s the kind of song that fits a SciFi movie soundtrack as easily as commercial radio. Worlds Apart is the title track on Seven Lions’ EP which also features another collab with Kerli (Keep It Close) and songs with Ellie Goulding (Don’t Leave) and Myon and Shane 54 & Tove Lo (Strangers). Highly recommended.

SONG OF THE DAY: The Chainsmokers vs Tove Lo – “Habits”

Swedish singer/songwriter Tove Lo seems primed for a major Lorde-like explosion this year.  With her strong collaboration with Seven Lions and Myon & Shane 54 as well as writing credits on songs for Lea Michele and Icona Pop, her songs have an edgy beauty that is quite reminiscent of Sia Furler.  Her song “Habits” has buzzed since the summer, and in the hands of the Chainsmokers gets an energetic electro treatment while keeping the haunting, pretty vocals as the focus over the melodic drop.  Not only are the Chainsmokers starting the year on a high note with a free download, they just might be doing for Tove Lo what Cedric Gervais did for Lana del Rey on his Grammy-nominated “Summertime Sadness” remix.
