I might be jinxing myself here (hopefully not) but I think I’m back in the groove..at least where Music Mondays is concerned!
As usual, I’ll be sharing 5 tracks I’ve been listening to (and loving) at the moment.
Speelburg, Everything I Know
I’d never heard of the Belgian-American artist until this song came on shuffle one day and I don’t think I’ve stopped playing it since.
Everything I Know is twinkly and fun, the perfect antidote to the unruly British weather, and it conjured up comparisons to earlier Vampire Weekend and Foster The People — two bands I love.
Little Comets, Total Abject Paranoia
Surprisingly for this post series, I’ve not only heard of this Newcastle based band, I’ve actually seen them live (back when concerts were a thing…sigh).
Total Abject Paranoia is an intoxicating blend of vocal harmonies, catchy hooks and orchestral-sounding background music.
Oscar Scheller (feat. Katie Galvin), I’m Enough
After hearing a song of his featuring Marika Hackman, an artist I’m a big fan of, I’m not particularly surprised to find one of the London based songwriter’s songs on this playlist.
I’m Enough is a blend of catchy riffs, soulful harmonies and electronic beats.
Picture This, Things Are Different
I’ve already included this Irish pop-rock band in my Music Mondays post but, after hearing this song, I knew I had to include them again.
Things Are Different is a thumping, crowd-pleaser of a pop song – one that instantly has me thinking of Sea Girls and Kodaline, two bands I’m also a fan of.
Hayley Williams, My Limb
Who knew I’d have my (sort of) Paramore phase at 23? Not me, but there’s no denying that this track — taken front woman Hayley Williams’ latest solo album —- is a good one.
My Limb is a combination of an engaging hook coupled with Williams’ captivating, distinctive vocals.
