Rolling in at number nine is the upbeat jangle pop bop ‘Losing You’ from Norway’s Boy Pablo. This track went crazy this year with critical acclaim from the hottest publications in the music world as well as catching over 8 million streams on Spotify alone.
‘Losing You’ is a dreamy one, it’s breezy melodies and summery tones come together to create a sublime piece of songwriting, that is catchy and innovative in equal measure. As it’s drifting hooks wrap you in happiness, the lyrics take you somewhere darker creating a feeling of joyous pain. There’s a juxtaposition throughout that is really becoming a staple of this Norwegian’s style, like an anti-R.E.M.
This has been a highlight of year and will be a mainstay on our playlists for years to come. Thanks Boy Pablo.
