    I might be 10 years late to the party, but what does that matter? When I think of pop music, I think of Top Sound.

Whether it’s indie-pop or lover’s rock, the strength of their music is in the quality of their writing and delivery, particularly their choice of melody.
    Could You Be the One is the perfect TRD ballad. That Bacharach-esque call and response between Johan’s vocals and that horn-sounding synth is heavenly. Pure genius.

    Always come back to this tune. I discovered The Color Waves when I was living abroad in East Asia, working 12-hour days. Chirology reminds me of rainy morning commutes and dodging puddles in the factory grounds on the way to my office. A really special time; a really special song. Perfect pop.
