Infinite hand-clap emojis for this one, Los Fumadores*. Alex and Drew have up'd the anti once again here with their newest track, "Don't Let Me Down." I know with every passing Chainsmokers track we rave about on t4L I say they're at the top of their game, but my boys keep raising the fucking bar. I guess I'm calling them the Cingular of the EDM world? Which sounds like a burn but is meant as a compliment. The beginning and verses has this sort of brooding, emo-pop vibe going on. Kind of XYLØ-esque what with that faded electric guitar, atmospheric synth and thumping bass drum all floating together under those wispy yet resilient female vocals. But then the song transforms at the build and you sudden'y find yourself listening to a track that is an absolute banger and a halffff. It hits that satisfying, sweet-spot—a direct result of those screaming vocals being combined with that fist-pumping percussion. It's one of those chorus' that you'll find those drunk annoying girls you hate me shrieking along to at the bar—off-fucking-key as Helen Keller— with all the passion of a young Ashanti.

*still tryna get that nickname to spread and I will never stop campaigning. It's too fun to say with a Barcelonean accent, amiright?
