Thursday: Billie Eilish & Karol G

By Dorothy Lakshmanamurthy, page editor

Billie Eilish is known for her mysterious and  eerie music, and “Lovely”, her most popular song, does not encapsulate that. I prefer “My Future” and “Strange Addiction” because they highlight her melodic voice.  Karol G’s top Spotify song, “TQG”, had a constant beat that is catchy at first, but gets annoying and repetitive.  After listening to her discography I came to the conclusion this is still her best.

Friday: Kendrick Lamar & The 1975

By Marianna Young, photography trainer

I recommend “N95” from Kendrick’s new album “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’’. “N95” is the perfect song to get you pumped up for Kendrick’s performance at Lolla. I’ll admit, “About you” deserves the #1 spot on Spotify considering it is the only song in The 1975’s discography I enjoyed listening to all the way through. I do recommend “Heart Out” because of its catchy beat.

Saturday: ODESZA & Tomorrow X Together

By Josephine Zangrilli, photographer

“Sun Models” is ODESZA’s most popular song by number of listens. I don’t see the appeal in any of their music but “Boy” is relaxing.   Tomorrow X Together’s most popular song is “Blue Hour” which I believe is their best song. It is perfectly rated on Spotify with a number one spot.

Sunday: Lana Del Rey & The Red Hot Chili Peppers

By Zoe Clark, photographer

The Red Hot Chili Peppers #1 song on Spotify is “Californication” and it is highly deserved. I would recommend “Poster Child” for fans or others trying to get into their music. “Summertime Sadness” is a classic Lana Del Rey  song, being #1 on Spotify. I recommend her song “Dealer”, as her rich vocals and strong lyrics pull you in. Her music makes you feel all the emotions.
