See Louise’s previous choices from 2019.
Jessie Ware – What’s Your Pleasure?
This song tickles so many of my senses that I think I developed three new ones.
Romy – Lifetime
I wish this song was four minutes longer because it’s a direct shot of adrenaline to the heart.
Selena Gomez – Boyfriend
SG Lewis, Robyn, Channel Tres – Impact
I can smell the 6am sweat drippin’ off this one. Once this vaccine hits, I’ll lick that sweat right off your nose. I swear.
Charli XCX – Claws
I was afraid that I’d be left scarred after listening to this so much during Lockdown One but it still carries the right emotions for me.
Tei Shi – Die 4 Ur Love
So smooth you could put it on toast.
Lil Mariko, Ful Tac – Don’t Touch
This is a most excellent song for patriarchal rage.
RAYE – Natalie Don’t
I am ready for RAYE to be one of the biggest pop stars on earth.
Little Mix – Holiday
With their fifth album Confetti, I made the bold decision that Little Mix are the best girl band ever. Willing to fight anyone on this.
Tinashe – Rascal (Superstar)
I say this every year but JUSTICE4TINASHE
Close calls: Commes des Garcons (Like the Boys) – Rina Sawayama, Something More (Light) – Róisín Murphy, Crooked Man, Dark Hearts – Annie
