Weekdays 6:00PM-10:00PM

Lexi’s Listens is a new weekly post I’ll do with the songs I’ve been singing to nonstop! My hope is that if you’ve never heard of these, you might discover some new hits to listen to.

Now Playing On Kiss…

Starting off the list this week is a song we are playing on Kiss right now. Basically, I heard it all day at work so then it got stuck in my head from being so good and now I can’t stop listening to it. It’s so easy to listen to Blxst’s Chosen, because the sounds are so light and bouncy. It makes you want to bounce with the music, and that’s why I love it. The instrument sounds remind me of summer, kind of similar to Nico & Vinz’s Am I Wrong.

Emerging Artist: Leven Kali

Next is a song from an artist I saw perform as the opener at the KYLE concert at the Underground on Sat night. Leven Kali was incredible, he’s got insane vocals and such a joyful stage presence. His #1 song on Spotify, Do U Wrong, features Syd of The Internet. It’s a nice and smooth R&B track with two vocals that compliment each other very nicely. Both Syd and Leven have silkiness to their voice, which adds so much to the enticement of the track.

Those Music Videos Though

The next three songs I included because not only are they great songs, but their videos are especially noteworthy. First, Gold from Chet Faker has a video that is almost all footage of three beautiful rollerskaters skating in the street before dawn. I’ve never seen a video like it, and that’s why I love it. Second, Sunroof is a huge song on TikTok right now from Nicky Youre. The music video totally fits the vibe of the song, which, from the title, is the kind of song you’d wanna blast in your car with the windows down during summer.

Another big one from TikTok that I’m obsessed with is Caroline Polachek’s So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings. Her pop sound is the kind that makes you feel more alive and I connect with it s lot. I love her music video of this one because I want to say it wasn’t in any way choreographed. It seems like she had built the set and then just decided to vibe with the song and dance as she wanted to. And that’s the whole video.

Last but certainly not least since I’ve been listening to it the most, is the bonus track from Lorde’s Solar Power album. If you heard the album originally, you might not know Helen of Troy. Keep an ear for the lyrics to this one. They really spoke to me.

Happy listening!
