    Sales - "Getting It On"

    Pop music today can be so overproduced. The other day I was listening to the radio and there was some song on that had percussion, vocals, guitars, laser-sounding synths, a mid-song bass drop and I think a banjo. I honestly don't know. But there was so much going on, the song got completely lost within itself. It was like adding every Instagram filter until the picture becomes unrecognizable.

    Sales are an exception to this and remind us why less truly is more. They make music that's honest and straightforward, devoid of the clutter that ruins so many songs. "Getting It On" is their latest, and much like their previous songs, it's another subtle pop gem.—Katie K.
