If you've been listening to my playlists for a while now, you will know that every song that I've picked for each playlist I aim to make flow from one song to the next. To either help tell a story or to help illicit an emotion. This month's faves are no exception to that rule.
Upon hearing of HAIM a couple of years back I never understood why they were all the rage. But my musical taste has been convinced. I mean a group of sisters with pretty harmonies, cool guitar riffs and drums beats that make you want to join along, I mean what's not to love?
Is it just me or has this been the month about weddings. I feel like everywhere I turn everyone is either getting married, engaged or posting throwback wedding pics. Yet here I hame celebrating the single life and being serenaded to wedding style music by Tim Halperin this month.
So it's no secret that the month of May has pretty much been Paramore month. I've always been a huge Paramore fan, for quite the longest time and I do have to say that this album is the most different to that of any of their albums to date. While I am still a HUGE fan of their punk rock anthems I'm enjoying their new sound.
With no music cover this month, I instead wanted to write about an EP Launch that I attended last night. I think like many upcoming bands today it is too hard to categorise them into one specific genre, there are too many branches and combinations of genres, which is AMAZING if you think about it! It has opened up a whole new world of endless experimental combinations of music.
There has been sooo much amazing music that has come out this year, that I wanted to end on a happy note while also pushing boundaries and getting out of my comfort zone. This solo cover, was a very big step for me and a song that I have recently been loving.
When Lauren Aquilina announced that she was no longer going to be pursuing music at the start of this month my heart sank a little bit. So I thought I would come out of hibernation and do a cover of one of my fave songs.
I love discovering upcoming local talents, so I was very lucky that my university has the luxury of having various artists in residences. During this year I have discovered Dustin Tebbutt, an all-round amazing vocalists, musician, producer and many more.
This monthly has been extremely hard in the online digital community. I found I haven't been listening to anything else on repeat for the last couple of weeks other than Christina Grimmie. So this week I've posted a playlist of my favourite covers and originals by Christina herself.
Anyone who knows me, knows that Gabrielle Aplin is my favourite musical artist. I've also had the pleasure of meeting her and watching the intimate shows on more than one occasion. ***insert fangirl moment*** Her newest album has been on repeat over the last month, and I really can't wait to see her live show, come to Australia.
This week's music post is such a huge throwback for me. Before I started this blog I was a music covering enthusiast on youtube but those videos are now long gone. Being inspired by this musical artist was one of the reasons I started to post my music on the youtube platform to begin with. So when I heard one of her songs while shopping I delved into my music library to re-listen to her stuff.
I'm pretty lucky to have a close circle to amazingly talented friends. Jeffrey Chan is one of those crazy talented people who just played a sold out show the other week that I was lucky enough attend, was a pretty whirlwind experience.
