Ever wondered what Polina prefers listening to in her spare time? We did and we caught up with her to figure out her top 10 favourite tracks of the moment! Read on. 🙂
1. MO – Final Song
She is just so effortlessly cool. This song always puts me in a good mood and pumps me up for the day.
2. James Vincent McMorrow – Rising Water
It’s such cool song and groove. James’ voice is like butter to my ears. It reminds of some early Prince B-sides.
3. Christina & The Queens – Christine
Heard this when I was playing a show in Beirut this summer. Can’t get enough of this song. I just love her emotional charge and quirkiness. The video is so simple an unique.
4. Sia – Cheap Thrills
She makes shameless pop cool and credible. Definition of the Diva of the new age
5. Jonas Blue ft Dakota – Fast Car
With the summer coming to an end is still my guilty pleasure. Not an easy one to cover – as the original is so amazing but Dakota totally nailed the feeling and gave the song a new twist.
6. Zebra Katz – Ima Read
This has been out for a while but still is my “going out” jam. His flow sick. And for me it’s definitely one of the best videos to come out in recent years.
7. JT – Can’t Stop The Feeling
The promo tour around my single “Little Babylon” has kept me in Europe most of the summer. And every time this song comes on I’m feeling the good vibes and think of home – the sunny LA and feel lighter.
8. The Chainsmokers – Don’t Let Me Down
This song makes it into your system even if you don’t it want it to…I caught myself singing “don’t let me, don’t let me” in my sleep. It’s great to see a dance music artist like Chainsmokers to cross over in such a big way.
9. Sofi Tukker – Drunkee
My label mate (on Ultra Music) – I really like these guys. There’s something very infectious and sexy about this song. It puts you in state of tribal trance and Sofi’s voice is just so soothing and cool.
10. Felix Jaehn – Bonfire ft Alma
A fresh tune from my collaborator on “Book Of Love” Felix Jaehn is awesome! I like the “bad-ass” message of the song. I actually met and wrote a song with Alma in Berlin, she was a super cool and totally rocked it on the mic.
