Unplugged Headphones: Cake By The Ocean (DNCE)


What can I say? I’m a sucker for a cheesy pop song. I grew up in a house where my mum listened to Cliff Richards, WHAM! and Culture Club, I was doomed from the start….

On the days when I’ve got the blankest of stares, a set of clenched fists and a hoodie with the drawstrings pulled so tight that you can just about make out my eyes, you’d probably think I’m listening to a ‘put a bullet in your dome piece’ rap song, it’s a front… I’m definitely (unashamedly, okay maybe a little bit ashamedly) listening to “Cake By The Ocean”.

Selling out never sounded so good.
