Song: “Why We Fight”
Artist: Fast Romantics

Album: American Love
Label: Light Organ Records
Released: April 28

The first time I heard this song it gave me chills. Especially with today’s problems, It’s got just the right amount of nostalgia, Matthew Angus’ voice reminds me of Bruce Springsteen. This song feels like the anthem our generation needs.

Song: “No Roots”
Artist: Alice Merton
Album: No Roots EP
Label: Paper Plane Records
Released: Aug. 4

Alice Merton - "No Roots"

Another goosebump-worthy song. I love a good bass line and this one hits the mark. Alice’s voice is sultry against the heavy rhythm section and makes you want to dance no matter where you are.

Song: “Rabble Rouser”
Artist: Enter Shikari
Album: The Spark
Label: Ambush Reality
Released: Sept. 22

When I first heard this song, it blew me away. It builds you up and when you think it should explode it mellows out with this deep synth/bass line into the catchy chorus.

Song: “Everything is Alright”
Artist: The Glorious Sons
Album: Young Beauties and Fools
Label: Black Box Music
Released: July 21

Glorious Sons

I remember seeing The Glorious Sons at a small bar in Toronto and it was no surprise hearing this single on the radio. It’s got a great build up into the chorus and makes you want to turn it up and sing along.
