Music You Should Know - Making The 2nd Single Count

Will their followup singles be just as good as their debut?

Daya - Sit Still Look Pretty

Daya thinks its so stupid that women are stereotyped as always fussing about their looks, wearing dresses, and being submissive.  This song picks up right where her first single "Hide Away" left off.  The first was about not how all good girls want a bad boy and "Sit Still Look Pretty" is fighting back about the stereotype that all girls are dolls - meant to be seen and not heard.

For a 17-year-old to be tackling such a major issue, more props to her!

 

The 1975 - The Sound

So this song has gotten fans to scratch their head a little: is The 1975 a rock band... or a boy band.  It doesn't matter because either way these guys sound completely AWESOME.  After their debut single "Chocolate" made massive waves in the music industry, the boys are back with an equally catchy tune.

"The Sound" is another earworm, filled to the brim with catchy beats and witty lyrics.

"It's not about reciprocation it's just all about me
A sycophantic, prophetic, Socratic junkie wannabe
There's so much skin to see
A simple Epicurean Philosophy
And you say I'm such a cliche,"

Like.  Seriously?  Well, this certainly blows a hole in the theory that all modern music is singing at a 2nd grade reading level.
