Happy last day of Christmas in July!  Enjoy One Direction’s newest single “Drag Me Down.”

World famous boy band One Direction may have had a BIT of a shaky year thus far.  Between Zayn Malik saying see ya later in the midst of an international tour, the band’s public beef with Malik’s new (and already ex) bestie Naughty Boy, and Louis Tomlinson‘s baby daddy announcement this has definitely been a year of flux for the group.  While many other groups would falter and disband in the face of so much drama, One Direction has soldiered on.  Today the group proved that we may be closer than we originally thought to hearing new music from them with the SURPRISE release of their newest single “Drag Me Down.”

“Drag Me Down” was written by Louis Tomlinson with the assistance of frequent collaborator Julian Bunetta.  The track symbolizes a more mature sound for the “You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful” crooners.  Over a slightly island inspired production the boys sing about a partner (or group of best friends) who have supported one another through thick and thin.  “With your love nobody can drag me down,” they chant with the utmost of faith on the chorus.  Do I detect some subtle shade to any One Direction nay-sayer?  Quite possibly. Do I love it all the more for that shade?  Absolutely!

“Make your ass shake like a waterbed.”  The Chainsmokers make a simple request on their newest release!  How could you say no?

Alex and Drew of The Chainsmokers have made it their goal to share new music with their followers once a month for the last three months.  The fun loving duo kicked things off with the release of “Good Intentions,” following up the next month by pairing up with Indie songstress Rozes to release a slice of dream pop titled “Roses.”  Well that time of the month has come around (not THAT time of the month), and the guys are ready to share their newest release: “Waterbed” featuring LA based duo Waterbed (see what they did there?).  The Chainsmokers described “Waterbed” succinctly, stating that “it’s like a TWERK track and a M83 track had sex on a night out of fireball” and asking “would you be intrigued and want to listen?”  I don’t know about you, but I was definitely into hearing more!

The guys are maintaining the dreamy aesthetic that they explored on “Roses,” but this time around they are taking a more dance friendly approach.  Production is as airy as can be, lush with bright pops and soaring synths over which Waterbed sings about making a night worth remembering.  Do I get the twerk friendly appeal?  Oh yeah!  Do I get the M83 stylings?  Without a doubt.  Now all I need is a bottle of Fireball and the night is mine for the taking…

The final result is a bright and ephemeral track that is entirely irresistible.  Don’t believe me?  Take a listen to The Chainsmoker’s “Waterbed” under the cut and then let me know if you can resist the urge to dance!  Continue reading
