End Music Discovery: Avicii - "Wake Me Up"

Jun 17th | categories: Music

EDM. It's inescapable, your mom asked you about it the other day, your little brother won't shut up about it. But why isn't it on the radio? Mostly because mainstream formats aren't really sure what to do with it. Most songs don't have lyrics to connect with people, and often times older audiences just don't care to understand or get into it.

That said, this new Avicii track is quite interesting. Beacuse while the producer is known for his massive dance hits, this latest track caries more than a fist full of Mumford flair alongside those too fun bob-your-head synth melodies. Which brings us to the question, is this something you'd want to hear on The End? Tell us on Facebook, and have a listen below (song starts at 41 seconds in).

please don't put this on the end. Nothing against EDM, I'm a big fan of it myself, it just shouldnt make its way onto an alternative station. Keep the end doing what it does best and dont hop on the EDM bandwagon like everyone else please.

Agreed. I love this song, I love EDM But that belongs to, you know, C895 or KISS-FM, not "The End". When I think of KNDD, I think of alternative rock, not this.

I like it! But i dont know if i could stand to listen to it more than a handfull of times....

totally off topic of this artist. But I think KNDD should look into the artist Lorde from NZ. She makes some pretty good stuff.

i'd say that this would qualify as "alternative" music. why not embrace the hybrid of genres?! let seattle carry that new music torch as always!
