Don't Wanna Fight
by Alabama Shakes
(134 plays) | (0 fans)

The song was partially inspired by the Alabama Shakes members' difficult early days when they were trying to balance their commitments to the band and their day jobs. Brittany Howard explained that it's about, "when you're working to get ahead but you can't because every time you try, someone gonna take it from you. Like when I used to work and I was going to school and paying my utility bills and you end up with not enough at the end of the day but you go to work anyway and there's still not enough and lots of people live that way." This won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song at the 2016 ceremony. Here's the official performance video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nin-fiNz50M

Deep Blue
by Arcade Fire
(10 plays) | (0 fans)

The title of this song refers to the chess-playing super computer developed by IBM that defeated grandmaster Garry Kasparov in 1996. The song treats the triumph of technology over human as a generational loss of innocence. Frontman Win Butler said: "'Deep Blue' to me sounds like Neil Young with Depeche Mode at the end - which shouldn't work, but I think it does."

Burn the Heather
by The Lounge Society

The West Yorkshire teen quartet said, “‘Burn the Heather’ is a song deeply rooted in where we come from. The lyrics are our interpretation of some of the darker aspects of where we live, and our personal reaction to them. Musically, ‘Burn the Heather’ is intended to be an adrenaline shot to the brain." - https://bit.ly/2I1vJkq
