From Brooklyn power-pop duo Fake Guns, “Blue” is the sort of jangly feel-good tune that you throw on the stereo to soundtrack a sunset drive on a sticky summer night.

Best lyric: “So much time to kill almost wish I didn’t hate you still.”

If the name Maggie Rogers seems to ring a bell it’s likely because a video of her sharing this song with Pharrell during a Masterclass at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute has been making its rounds as of late and for good reason. Rogers is an incredible talent and it didn’t take long for Pharrell to recognize it either. The falsettos on this track are something else –– checkout “Alaska” below.
