These are the top 5 songs/videos you MUST listen before the year ends. Whether they had airplay or not, these songs (IMHO) are songs/videos that are worth listening and watching, either for their artistic flavor or because they're just plain out fucking awesome.
Of course fashion is involved on these videos, you'll find crazy ass fucking outfits, majorly chic people with smokey eyes for days and of course, designers madness mixed with musical whimsical dreams.
Without further ado, please open your ears and eyes wide, because you're about to listen and see THE BEST OF THE REST.
1. M.I.A - Y.A.L.A
I've literally been a fan of M.I.A since the beginning of her career when I first listened to "Galang" I just decided I was gonna love her forever and ever, and so far I have. This girl is pure genious and with this video she proves herself one more time (though she doesn't really need to). You always live again.... bitches.
2. ZEBRA KATZ - Y I DO
If you think you've heard it all in the rap game by listening to kanye or jay z you are wrong, WRONG. The best beats and rhymes come from little less known artists like Zebra Katz. This brilliant verbalicious being from outter space is filled with dark mad sounds, for example this video/song. I just want to take out the black candles and listen to this. damn.
3. SKY FERREIRA - NIGHT TIME, MY TIME
This fashion darling has been out for quite some time, but it wasn't until this year when we finally got her debut album. All her brilliant EP's couldn't prepare us for the incredible sounds of this album, specially this song. Is trippy, hazzy and specially very beautiful.
4. HAIM - THE WIRE
Mix 3 alternative talented sisters with retro sounds, looks and imagery and you have HAIM. If you haven't jumped into the haim-loving band wagon then you surely definitely should... and you will; specially after listening to this heart-vibrating and feet-shaking track. Like, how could you not? just look at them!
5. MØ - WASTE OF TIME
Quintessential white girl dance moves, hipster fashion chunky sweater extravaganza and some darn good beats. What else could you ask from a new artist? MØ is definitely making a statement with this cool video.
PD: Disclaimer, not all of these were actually released this year, but are very VERY worth watching.
