TGIF: Majical Cloudz

This feels like the longest winter ever to plague Ontario. This song, however, is the warmest boost to an otherwise dreary week - deeply rooted in lines about friendship, youth and all of the pleasantly banal things that come with pairing the two. Majical Cloudz, the mid-tempo, synth-savvy Montreal duo behind this standout single, managed to evoke the same heartwarming sensation that LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends" did on "What That Was." Hollering alongside a gorgeous organ synth that's set for a neon city night, Devon Welsh's sentimental chorus tugs my heart strings every time he chants, "Hey, I think that you're the best friend that I've ever had... I didn't think about it until now." It seems like a simple concoction - the unfussy, melodic-meets-meaningful splendour of this song - yet somehow, you don't hear it that often.

For best friends everywhere, this is the dreamiest anthem for your weekend. TGIF!
