Favorite songs from Coachella 2016: The Sound and The Plage



By Leighton Ginn

Sometimes at Coachella, I will find a song that really grabs me and becomes one of my favorites.

Last year, it was Haert’s “Giving Up.”

This year, I found two.

From 1975, “The Sound” really hits on all cylinders. It’s a great song that I first heard when they were on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and it’s great to hear live.

“Chocolate” and “Sex” were great hits for The 1975, but I think “The Sound” is pretty special and will have a lasting appeal.


I heard “Plage” during Crystal Fighter’s set and it really stuck with me as a great pop song.

Now this song isn’t that new as it was released in 2010. But it feels like a hidden treasure.

I was looking on the YouTube comments and it looks like some other people discovered this song during Coachella as well.

Crystal Fighters was a recommendation from a trusted friend who nailed this.


While I’m at it, here’s another song from Crystal Fighters’ set I really liked, “You and I.”
