ALY & AJ - “LISTEN!!!”
You might remember Aly & AJ from Disney Channel in the 2000s. The sisters starred in movies and television shows like Phil of the Future and Cow Belles. Or maybe you remember their breakout hit from 2007, “Potential Breakup Song.” The bouncy track recently found its second life on TikTok. Now, they’re back with a matured pop sound and want you to “Listen!!!” Its dreamy atmospheric vocals accompanied by upbeat synths and drums feels like the summer bliss experienced on a warm beach. The sisters close out their new tune further flaunting their grown sound. Bubbly bongos and a shiny electric guitar melt into the vocal melody.

KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD - “INTRASPORT”
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard’s track “Intrasport” comes from their recently released album K.G. It truly shows off the Melbourne-based group’s unique form of musical aggression. Pairing traditional Eastern styles of music together with a more ravey nightclub feel makes for a totally unique listening experience. It will surely make your afternoon commute feel like a high-stakes car chase.
