Martin Solveig – Hello (ft.Dragonette) (Single Edit)

 

Martin is set to release his fifth studio album entitled, “Smash”.  Martin teams up with Dragonette for an  energetic ride on this electro pop “smash” hit.  See what I did there?  O.k, not the greatest lead in but you get the idea.

Martin Solveig – Hello (ft.Dragonette) (Single Edit)
Martin Solveig & Dragonette – “Hello” Lyrics

I could stick around and get along with you
Hello
It doesn’t really mean that I’m into you
Hello

You’re alright but I’m here darling to enjoy the party
Don’t get too excited ‘cuz thats all you’ll get from me
Hey

Yeah I think you’re cute but really you should know
I just came to say hello
Hello
Hello
Hel-o-o-o-o

I’m not the kinda girl who’d get messed up with you
Hello
I’ma let you try to convince me to
Hello

It’s alright I’m getting dizzy just enjoy the party
It’s OK with me if you don’t have that much to say
Hey
Kinda like this thing but there’s something you should know
I just came to say hello

Hello

Hey

Hey

I could stick around and get along with you
Hello

It doesn’t really mean that I’m into you
Hello

(you’re alright but I’m here darling to enjoy the party)
(you’re alright but I’m here darling to enjoy the party)
(alright but I’m here darling to enjoy the party)
(you’re alright but I’m here darling to enjoy the party)
(alright but I’m here darling to enjoy the party)
(alright but I’m here darling to enjoy the party)

I just came to say hello
Hello
Hello
Hello

I’m not the kinda girl who’d get messed up with you
Hello
I’ma let you try to convince me to
Hello

It’s alright I’m getting dizzy just enjoy the party
It’s OK with me if you don’t have that much to say
Hey

Kinda like this thing but there’s something you should know
I just came to say hello

Here’s an older track also featuring Dragonette):

Lamb – Another Language

Sooooo good to have Lamb back in action again.  It’s been ages, to be exact eight years, since we’ve heard from them and they do not  disappoint  on their latest effort, entitled, “5” (as in their  fifth studio album).  They still have that deep  throbbing bass in their sound, but now it’s topped with bit-crushing drums sounds as opposed to the more traditional drum n bass sounds that adorned their early work.   Vocalist Lou Rhodes sounds as good as always.

Just got the heads up from the band that they just released their video for “Older Together”.  Read here for my previous write-up on the band.  Side note from the band, “It was shot by  dreambear with a little bit of help from  Lomography.”
