The month of May has been one of great music for me. There was been some new songs and albums that were released this month as well as songs that I’ve just discovered on my own that I have been obsessing over and, like always, I’m here to tell you all about them!
The first song would be “Bored To Death” by Blink 182. This is off of Blink 182’s new album, and although the song was released in April, I’ve been listening to it non-stop for the entire month of May. Its one of those songs that are hard to explain, its just a classic Blink song that just gets you up and singing. Its got a nice beat and melody that stays in your head all day. I suggest that if you are a pop-punk fan or an alternative music fan, you should listen to this song, even if you are not a Blink fan. Its just a great song; song of the summer for me!
The next song is by an artist who is completely new to me. I was listening to the coffee shop soundtrack station on sirius xm and heard this song. I loved the mellow vibe that was linked to a classic story; Peter Pan. The song is called “Lost Boy” and its by Ruth B. Her voice, the melody, the key, and the simple piano accompaniment is a perfect blend. For some reason, when I listen to this song I feel like I’m a child again and I imagine myself as Wendy, waiting for Peter Pan to come to my window. If you are into indie music, or that coffee shop sound, I suggest you listen to this song or at least look up Ruth B because all of her songs are amazing!
Finally, I’ve been listening to Against The Current’s new album “In Our Bones” for the past week, ever since its release. The album, in my opinion, is pure gold! You are your darker sounding songs like “Chasing Ghosts” and “Blood Like Gasoline” that have an edgy, ominous vibe. But then you have your more upbeat songs like “In Our Bones” and “Runaway” that you bob your head to, smile, dance and just feel good while singing. My favorite songs off the album would be “Chasing Ghosts,” “In Our Bones,” and “Demons.” If you like bands like PVRIS or other female vocalist bands, you should definitely check out Against The Current because I see big things for their future; they’re gonna rock it!
Those are just a few songs and albums that I’ve been loving this month. If you want to know about more what I’ve been listening to, I’ve created a playlist on Spotify that highlights all the songs that I’ve been listening to during this spring/summer season! I generally update it every week, so there are quite a few songs already on the list and many more to come!
