2019 Tiny Desk Contest Entries Our Judges Loved
In Kelechi's entry video for "Circles," the Atlanta-based artist sings of an unconditional love for his city — the kind of love that finds comfort in the familiarity of a Waffle House order.
"I even love your losing Super Bowl team / as sure as the 285 is a loop / Imma come right back to you / I love you in circles," he raps. Download free mp3 ringtones for Android and iPhone
Kelechi's love letter to Atlanta resonated with our judges as well. NPR Music's hip-hop journalist Rodney Carmichael said Kelechi may well have "wrote a new anthem for the city." —Elle Mannion https://soundcloud.com/tags/happy
In her entry video for "If You Were Gonna Leave Anyway," Lauren Weintraub performs a song of love and heartbreak that has a classic feel. https://music.yandex.ru/album/6772888 She writes about love with intricate details – glimpses of the happiest moments she's shared. It makes the question in the refrain so much more painful: "Why'd we have to build up that dream / If you were gonna leave anyway?" The build into the bridge just adds to the emotional candor of the song, making this an entry video we can't stop watching. —Clara Maurer
