Artist of the Day: Bombs and Bottles

Sugary-sweet pop with bass seems to be all the rage these days; at least that's what it appears from the large ambient/experimental rock I live under. It's effectively the first sub-culture beneath the wastelands of One Direction, Justin Bieber and all similar forms of hell spawn. Simple enough, really: it's catchy, fun and sometimes even quite inventive. Also, being a sub/counter-culture and all, a lot of affiliated artists like to release a chunk of their music for free, which is jolly nice of them.

Bombs and Bottles is one of these jolly nice people, and he makes music very similar to what I previously described. Think Weeknd-esque vocals over chirpy melodies and the kind of organic, "drop the" bass lines that were really popular about a year ago and you'd be very close. It's closer to dance than volume-worship, however, so what bass is used is often kept to a restrained, catchy level, and do you know what? A lot of what Bombs and Bottles has to offer is really, really good. Sure, there's not much to it, but it's just plain, vanilla enjoyment, so there's nothing to really complain about. The perfect stuff to celebrate with for those who can now get baked legally.

Official Website: I'd personally recommend Tonight and Numb and Young.
