Hi-Five: New Lana Del Rey Single, Waterstrider Covers Little Dragon, + More

Lana Del Rey – West Coast

After performing the song yesterday at Coachella—which apparently went much better than her live performance on SNL—LDR released “West Coast” for everyone to hear.  This track is unlike the slow-mo disco heard in the recently leaked, “Meet Me in the Pale Moonlight,” and more characteristically atmospheric and fluid.  

Ki:Theory – Open Wound (ODESZA Remix)

Seattle duo ODESZA adds in intricately layered melodies and textures to give this track fresh electronic life in a hard-hitting way. 

Waterstrider – Twice (Little Dragon Cover)

This song’s sensuality is enhanced in this subtle and sexy cover, adding instrumentation that is reminiscent of The XX. 

Keys N Krates – I Just Can’t Deny

If you haven’t already gotten to know Toronto-Based “Keys N Krates,” now’s the time to do so. Comprised of Adam Tune, David Matisse and Jr. Flo, the trio up-and-coming trio turns it out in this electro-trap banger.

IYES – Til Infinity

British duo IYES contribute their own interpretation of today’s pop music with dominating tribal drums and stylish synths, avoiding monotony with a concoction of varying genres.
