New Music of the Month – April 2017

Get ready for a bumper edition of New Music of the Month! There have been loads of amazing new tracks released the last couple of weeks and there’s no better place to catch them all than right here!

 Check out March’s new music here.

Crowded Places – Banks

This stripped back track from Banks (say that four times fast) is the anti-thesis to songs like ‘Brain’ which we know her so well for. This song is built to chill too, but it feels like such a ‘real’ and tough track. Continue Reading →

Concert Wishlist

Mondays always seem to be music posts. Maybe I should make music Mondays a thing on here.

This week I’m listing off some amazing musicians I wish I’m able to see perform live in concert one day, and some that I’ll never be able to see perform, and I truly wish I could have done.

 SCANDAL

SCANDAL are a four piece Japanese indie/rock/pop band that have been around for ages now. I first fell in love with SCANDAL when I was 14 I think, near 8 years later and I’m still a huge fan.

Their music spans genres, they’ve toyyed around with their style over the last 10 or so years, and it’s really paid off, for the most part.

The girls seem to perform in London once a year or so, now I live here I’m hoping I get the chance to see them soon. SCANDAL’s greatest hits dropped not too long ago, fingers crossed there’s an accompanying tour.

Bonus fact: I spent most of my teenage years yearning after Rina (third from left), the drummer of the band. My crush is still strong.

Top 10 Albums of 2016

The year is coming to a close, so it’s time to look back at some of the amazing albums we were blessed with this year. 2016 was a cracking year in music, here are 10 of my favourite albums that were released this year. These are in no particular order, don’t make me choose a favourite. Don’t be that cruel.

Christine and the Queens – Chaleur Humaine

This was originally released in France in 2014, but didn’t make it’s way over the English channel, or onto my Spotify, until this year.

Chaleur Humaine is a strong album, lacking any filler, with lyrics intertwining two languages, heavy beats and soft flows. Chaleur Humaine feels appropriate for all times of day, for all moods. I could dance to ‘Tilted’ in a club, listen to ‘Science Fiction’ in the gym, but most of all I jam out to it in the house.

Lead single: ‘Tilted’
