“Fall In Love” – Phantogram

Phantogram describes their music as “darkadelic,” which strikes me as perfect. Electro-rock with heavy psychedlic influences, their sound is dark and dense. Throw on lyrics that speak about the hopeless side of love, and their songs aren’t terribly uplifting. But damn do they sound great.

Bonus points: If I had to have a crush on someone in this year’s countdown, it would be lead singer Sarah Barthel.

Fall in me
I’ll let you bleed
’Cause you were fallin’, I’m sorry, ah baby
