A few weeks back, Adele, unleashed her latest single and more notably the theme song for the next James Bond film, ”Skyfall”. “Skyfall” follows the formulaic flow James Bond theme songs have grown to embody over the years, however, “Skyfall” has one key aspect adding to its musical integrity, the illustrious vocals of Adele. Adele’s raspy and alluring vocals entrance the listener and coalesce impeccably with the undertones of the original. Today however, thanks to Clark Kent & Oscar Daniel, “Skyfall” has emerged once again in a very different light. Clark Kent & Oscar Daniel support Adele’s resilient vocals with a resounding melodic bassline and expertly produced synths. This is how espionage, deceit, and risqué love affairs are meant to sound. This is James Bond.

Simply put, Youngblood Hawke has “that sound” to make it into the major leagues. The Los Angeles band’s got enormous, anthemic pop songs that literally beg for arena-sized or radio airplay and a rugged, sun-soaked look that screams ultra cool California chillaxin’. They just dropped this lovely video for their latest single “We Come Running.” Directed by Marc Klasfield (who’s worked with Jay-Z and fun.), it shows the group heading to the Bahamas and swimming with real sharks. Their latest self-titled EP is out now on Universal Republic and they will be hitting the road this Fall with Passion Pit.
Although e-dubble‘s newest single is all about living life on the edge, don’t mistake it for your average party track. The song keeps an uptempo vibe throughout, but once you dig deeper into the lyrics, you’ll realize there’s much more beneath the surface. While on one hand e-dubble relishes his current success as a rapper, he knows that he needs to keep his eyes glued to the future and the road ahead. This leads to such diverse topics as debauchery in Ibiza to the upcoming presidential election, which makes for an interesting concoction overall. If you’re feeling this one, don’t forget to head over to iTunes to show your support. Also make sure to pre-order e-dubble’s upcoming Reset EP, coming soon.
Blossoming from delicate percussion and chiming guitars into a rousing Arcade Fire-like crescendo, “Breakers” is an exciting first taste of Local Natives’ forthcoming sophomore album Hummingbird, which is slated for a January 28th release.
