Recently I have been really emerging myself in new music. I often find myself getting stuck in music ruts where I only listen to an artist or a few artists all the time (Cherry, if you’re reading this you will know a particular band that I’ve done this with recently **oneokrock**) So I have been forcing myself to listen to new artists and genres of music to give my ears a nice refresher and to bring new music into my life.
Spotify is one of my favorite places to find new music, they have a wonderful playlist called “Weekend Buzz” that has new music added to it every weekend based on your previous plays, so its catered to you personally. This has been my best friend lately.
First and foremost, I’ve found probably my new favorite song on this playlist. Its called “Dont Worry About Me” by Frances. Firstly, this song starts off with a beautiful acapella introduction of the chorus that seriously gave me chills the first time I heard it. Frances’ voice is so beautiful and raw that you are transported to another time in space when she sings. This is such a true song lyrically as well. When you get past the beauty of the music and listen to what she is saying its so real that you feel every bit of what she is saying. Honestly, I cried the first time I truly listened to the lyrics. Safe to say this song is on repeat multiple times during my day.
The second song that I’ve been loving is by a the artist Lany and its called “WHERE THE HELL ARE MY FRIENDS” . Not only is this a great and “#relatable” song title, but the song is super catchy. I listened to this song while cleaning and I was singing it all day long. Its got this nice up tempo, electronic ambiance to it that makes you want to dance and sing along. The song is telling a story of moving to LA and literally thinking where the hell are his friends. Makes you almost question moving to a bigger city, yes it has its perks, but with all those people do you really have any friends to hang out with that are genuine? I could be reading too much into it, but its still a great song to dance too.
Finally, the last song I’ll talk about today is by The Mowgli’s and its called “I’m Good” and this is such a “feeling-great-wanna-drive-with-the-windows-down” type of song. When I listen to it I literally feel so good. Just loving life the way it is and you should enjoy every moment of it type of song that everyone needs to have on any type of playlist I feel. If I just need a great “happy” song to match my mood, this is the first song I go to. Highly recommend to all my positive friends out there as well as my friends who need a little pick-me-up!
Those are just a few of the new artists/songs that I’ve been loving recently and that have really refreshed my ears! There are plenty more songs like this on my Spotify playlist! I’ve created a playlist of songs that I’ve been listening to this Spring/Summer, so if you are interested check it out!
