A few days ago I was reading a blog post by One Nerd’s Brain about some of the music they have been enjoying recently. I actually ended up rediscovering a few artists who I haven’t listened to for some time now too! After listening to the songs mentioned in the post, it got me thinking a little bit about what I’ve been listening lately on Spotify.
Let’s take a look!
BABYMETAL – PA PA YA!!
PA PA YA!! Is the lead single from the BABYMETAL’s upcoming album Metal Galaxy that is due to be released in a couple of weeks. The first time I heard this song I found myself dancing along to it without realizing. Even now I still dance along when it starts to play. While I love the official music video for the song, I have to say I find myself watching their Glastonbury performance more often. Their energy, stage presence and enthusiasm when they perform on stage is incredible. You would never know that they had just performed in Japan less than twenty-four hours before this performance either!
YOU ME AT SIX – What’s It Like
You Me At Six is probably one of the bands that I listen to on a daily basis in some form. What’s It Like has been a song that has grown on me over time and I’m hoping that we hear more from the band in the near future about their next album.
DREAMCATCHER – WHAT
I’ve only recently discovered DREAMCATCHER but I haven’t found a single song that I haven’t liked yet. They’ve recently just released a Japanese album as well as a new Korean Mini-Album and both of these have been amazing to listen to. My two favorite songs that I’ve had on repeat lately have been What and You & I.
LIGHTS – Down Forever
When LIGHTS released her acoustic album of Skin&Earth, I fell in love with the reimagined album. Then again I loved the original album too. The acoustic version also contained a few extra tracks including Down Forever. The first time I heard the song, I felt that I could relate to it in so many ways and it made me feel so inspired and motivated. I actually picked up my guitar and started to learn to play again after not playing for a good few years because of this album. I’m still a little rusty, I’m getting there.
Let me know what you’ve been listening to lately in the comments!
