*RELEASE* The Chainsmokers- Good Intentions (ft. BullySongs)

5/19/2015 tunes4loons 0 Comments

If I said the phrase "The Chainsmokers" at any point before like 2013, you would have thought I was talking about those 2 #ratchet aunts from the Simpsons, Selma and Fatty or w/e. But NOW? Now you think of those two dudes who created the anthem to Jay-Z's life (talking about "Kanye", obviously. I'm CONVINCED Jay sits in his bathtub, eating Chunky Monkey, blasting "Kanye", and bawling his eyes out whenever Bey is away). 

The Chainsmokers sent this track our way yesterday and, really, they could have sent us the audio track of Gilbert Godfrey choking on a dinner roll layered over a loop of cats in labor and we would have thought it was fabulous! But we're glad they didn't! This is MUCH better. It's a little electro-pop ditty that just SCREAMS for a dance party under the sun. Also, I'm really digging the "Chasing Cars" oscillating piano loop going on in the background. For their newest original, The Chainsmokers have paired up with BullySongs, who you (and we) just found out about now! #lol #theworstmusicbloggersever. This is what Alex and Drew (yeah, according to the e-mail, we're on on a first-name basis w. Los Fumadores**) had to say about "Good Intentions":

"So for us, the song is all about people who set out with the best intentions but end up with with the short end of the stick. The wonderful BullySongs from the UK wrote the topline explained to us that this song is all about those times that say to your lady or moms, 'I am just running to the store, Ill be back in an hour, and end up back at 5am...' and that idea really resonated with us as trouble makers with hearts of gold..."

Basically after listening to this song a half dozen times and reading their message I feel like this track is the soundtrack to Hank Moody's life on Californication. STR8 ↑. Like stick the lyrics into TV-script-format and I feel it's basically the exact same spiel given by David Duchovny's character in the final few episodes of every season. He's like, "I tried to be good and not cheat, but I kinda accidentally ate out another girl instead of u, Karen." #EWPS?! But give me the soundtrack to the Hank Moody's life anyday of the week. I feel like it would be this, a bunch of classic rock gems and maybe some Kid Cudi or some other rapper that 30+ white guys (and me #srynotsry) are into. 

** sry, but their Spanish name was too fun not to write
