The Chainsmokers have been on top of the world for quite some time, and though they’re a very divisive duo who seem to be in the gossip columns very often these days, there’s no denying that their reign is going to continue, particularly after Alex and Andrew dropped this new song, Sick Boy. For all the people who complain that their electronic dance tracks sound the same, how about some alt electro and rock? That’s right, The Chainsmoker’s new single is more twenty one pilots meets Transviolet than Roses or Closer. It’s an emphatic beast of a bristling, heart pumping anthem. Grab the jam, a surprise shift in style for the duo, here.

Wolf Alice’s Visions Of A Life was one of our favorite indie/alt rock albums of 2017. The beloved British band, whom I was lucky enough to see on tour at Rickshaw Stop when they opted for an intimate show in San Francisco, certainly outdid themselves with their sophomore album, though 2015′s My Love Is Cool will always have a special place in my heart. An unexpected delight cropped up this week in regards to one of the best songs off their second album. Don’t Delete The Kisses has received a re-work involving both Charli XCX and emerging indie duo Post Precious (Alex Winston and MS MR’s 

Max Hershenow). This new version of Don’t Delete The Kisses is the perfect combination of Charli XCX’s booming, rumbling electropop and Post Precious’ opalescent synthpop. It also feels somewhat like a CHVRCHES re-work with its throbbing beats and glossy synths. You can grab the remix, here.
