The Chainsmokers & Emily Warren, Charli XCX, Precious Kid and Sigala + The Vamps Are Our Music Monday Picks

Here at CONTROLRadioUK we're always on the look-out for the freshest tunes for our playlist and you dear readers, and in Music Monday we're bringing you the top tunes of the week!

WHAT. A. SONG. There have been many bangers released this summer so far, and undoubtedly The Chainsmokers latest hit 'Side Effects' featuring Emily Warren is one of them. From start to finish this song is pop perfection, superb both musically and lyrically. The beat break as the song reaches its climax is reminiscent of MNEK's 'Tongue', another song which should be rooted to your playlist. There is absolutely no doubt you will be breaking the replay button on this song, and it won't be long before it's sitting high at the top of the chart.

Another top track from Charli XCX has arrived in 'Girls Night Out'. It's giving us 80's vibes which we are completely here for. Destined to be a Eurodance anthem, it's a fun, feel good song that Charli does ever so well. She's released a few bops this year in '5 in the Morning' and 'Focus/No Angel', but this is undoubtedly the best of the bunch. If you're hearing a sound that is extremely familiar to the Spice Girls + early Madonna, then fear not because you're not the only one!

For those unfamiliar with the band, Precious Kid are a 3 piece rock band from California and 'Was It Worth the Love Song' is an absolute smash in waiting. It's the perfect type of Pop/Rock anthem that sounds like something straight out of the 80's and the music video matches the tone perfectly. It's also the perfect type of IDGAF post break-up song that I really wish more Artists would do.

Finishing off this week is Sigala's latest collaboration, this time with The Vamps. 'We Don't Care' is another summer stomper that is destined to rule the charts. The beats are fresh, lyrics avoid sounding too generic, and it's a lovely chill anthem. The Vamps have also recently announced their 2019 tour which will see them playing in a number of cities in the US and UK. You can find dates along with ticket information here
