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.”
