#songoftheday / REVIEW: CARLY RAE JEPSEN: WARM BLOOD

“Warm Blood” is the fifth track to be released from Carley Rae Jepsen’s upcoming album E•MO•TION (out August 21st) and it’s easily the best.  Produced and co-written by Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, it sounds exactly like what you’d expect a collaboration between them to sound like, which, naturally, is sonic bliss.  From the thick,  bassy pulse of the verses to its throbbing house beats during the chorus to her emotionally vulnerable vocals, it’s nothing short of perfect.  Even the lyrics are great:  “I saw myself tonight, caught my reflection in the mirror / My hands and heart were tied, but I was scared of almost nothing at all.”  You could argue that this particular lyric sums up the album, Carly’s hands tied by the pressure to come up with another megahit, yet she feels liberated because she knows it’s virtually impossible to come up with something that will ever be as popular as “Call Me Maybe.”

Truth be told, E•MO•TION is one hell of an album, meshing everything from ’80’s pop to 2015 EDM into one sweet concoction after another… We’ll have a review when it gets closer to the release date.
