I recently got a copy of Disclosure’s new album Caracal, and naturally one of the first songs I listened to was “Magnets,” a song cowritten and sung by Lorde. Being a huge Lorde fan and waiting rather impatiently for her follow up to Pure Heroine, I needed any jolt of new Lorde music.
“Magnets” instantly became one of my new favorite songs after listening to it one time. It has a great dance beat and Lorde’s vocals are on point. It’s one of those songs that you can’t help but dance a little when you hear it. And then you’re sad when it’s over. Thereby you put it on repeat. It should be their next single.
My first instinct was that I liked the song only because Lorde sang and cowrote it. But then I just started listening to other songs and realized that it’s a pretty fantastic album. The beats and rhythms alone are incredible, but then you add the many collaborations (which include artists like The Weeknd, Sam Smith, Lorde, Miguel, and others) and it shows the Lawrence brothers (who make up Disclosure) are quite talented in the area of making catchy electric-dance music.
