A work friend remarked the other day that they wouldn’t expect me to be wearing a Madonna shirt – it makes since considering I’m a bearded 6’2″ guy who usually rocks metal merch, but it’s also hilarious considering I have Duran Duran’s Rio artwork permanently etched into my skin and a playlist ranging from Fergie to Lindsay Lohan in my regular rotation. I love the classics, but I also love listening out for who’s leading the pack when it comes to modern pop sounds.
Thus, consider me stoked that a friend sent over this brand new track from PLVTINUM. It’s an absolute earworm of a single that leans toward subtle touches of pop mastery (such as a sonic piece of the hook already present in the verses) which are thrilling to see coming from an independent artist. I saw a chart the other day that rates songs based on whether they’re bangers or jams and how far up the bop scale they are. If I had to rate “London’s Calling”, I’m thinking it leans heavily toward the jam side of the spectrum with serious bop potential. Time to add this bop to my playlist and spin it on repeat.
