This week there’s new songs from Billie Eilish, FKA Twigs and Panic! At The Disco.
This Week’s Music is a weekly column that discusses the weeks’ best, worst, and most interesting songs. We try to select songs of different artists and genres to keep things interesting and to please a variety of music fans.
To whet your musical appetites, Billie Eilish returns with yet another song, Panic! At The Disco does the Frozen 2 soundtrack and FKA Twigs is back and awesome as usual. Have a listen to this new music:
Billie Eilish – Everything I Wanted
Singer songwriter Billie Eilish has had a great year, releasing a really good debut album, going on a world tour, singing on SNL and just being super famous. While you were moping about the end of yet another year, here’s another Eilish song, and it’s also great and moody like her best work. “Everything I Wanted” is more restrained than her crazier outings, maybe a little more adult, with a consistent and electronic hum that permeates and makes you wanna dance while you cry a little. It’s great.
Panic! At The Disco – Into The Unknown
I should preface this by clarifying that my tolerance for Panic! At The Disco is very low, but this song is just objectively awful. Although Brendon Urie is trying his best to pull off an Idina Menzel, nothing is working here. This is not “Let It Go.” No little kids will be obsessed with this song because it sucks.
FKA Twigs – Sad Day
FKA Twigs is alien similar to Frank Ocean, an artist who clearly enjoys pushing buttons and testing listener’s patience. Still, she’s well balanced, never distracting from the power of her music and lyrics. There’s no smoke and mirrors in her work; Twigs is weird but she’s also sincere and undeniably talented.
