I am nothing if not a (wayward, powerless) arbiter of pop music. Over the years I have advocated for indie darlings, universally acclaimed megastars and criminally underrated savants. And now I’ve got a new addiction: ‘Your Girl’ by Violet Days.

I don’t want to get too technical here but, guys, that song is awesome. It’s got smooth hooks! It’s got booming bass! It’s got catchy programming! It’s got basically everything you’d want in a pop song these days (sorry). I’ll be very excited to see what Violet Days does next because, for at least one (wayward, powerless) critic, songs like this are just about the pinnacle of contemporary pop music.
