Second in our list of favourite tracks from this year is the sublime Two Hearts by NZCA Lines. Ok so we admit, the track itself was released right at the end of 2015, but it made its impact in 2016 and appears on the band’s superb Infinite Summer album which hit stores in January.
It is alt-pop at its very best; a wonderfully complex piece of electronic music construction paired with good old fashioned strong pop hooks. In a sense, it is probably one of the more ‘commercial-sounding’ tunes from the album, but it represents just one strand of what is a impressively varied collection of songs. In Two Hearts, Michael Lovett’s lead vocals really chime with Sarah Jones’ chorus for a slick and catchy track that builds and builds. We never tire of listening to this one, hence its placing towards the top of our list of the best tunes of the year.
