This Is America
(CN: Gun Violence)
“This Is America” goes back and forth between cheerful gospel and dark trap sections, eventually fusing both together. It’s quite groovy. The nerve-racking music video is portraying a history of gun violence in the USA.

Charli XCX/Troye Sivan
Warning, this song is extremely infectious and very 90s. I love the music video. Anyone spotted the Netspace logo at the end?

In My Dreams
Just what a wonderful song this is. It’s wrapping around me like a long, comfortable hug. Trying to remember the feeling of it, atleast this song gives me an acoustic approximation.
