And we all know how much I love the UK. And having recently rediscovered Bastille through YouTube of all places, I figured I’d share this with you all.
I’ve had Bastille’s debut album Bad Blood sitting in my music folder for the longest time, my friends had recommended them to me and I downloaded their album without even thinking about if I would like their music or not. This is one of the greatest leaps of faith ever, because lo and behold, I love their music. They’re a high quality four man group, and Dan Smith’s vocals definitely throw it over the edge.
And his hair? DAMN HIS HAIR IS AWESOME. (This lil bit about hair is a little joke at The Big Cheese and my other cousins who mock me and my “One Direction” hair. By the way, my gravitar is inaccurate to my face, now. I should change that.)
Bastille is great, listen to the entire album Bad Blood. Look up their acoustic sessions on YouTube. Find their Abbey Road sessions, too. It’s incredible. The violins and the vocals it’s just heavenly.
Ed Sheeran. I love this guy. Millions of da chicas love this guy. His album, +, has received commercial success worldwide and his songs are blaring on most pop radio stations, Satellite or standard FM or otherwise.
His first single, The A Team, peaked at number one. This song is his follow up single. It peaked at number 4, and I like it so much better, just because the songs have such contrasting sounds.
You Need Me is nothing like the A Team, actually. It’s no ‘pity on the beautiful hooker’ song, it’s a, ‘screw you, I’m me’ song. Fantastic, really.
One of my favorite artists of all time, a song off one of my favorite albums of all time, on my list of top 30 favorite songs of all time. Bravo, Two Door Cinema Club.
Indie music just makes me relax and feel really good about myself, inspiring me to be creative, something a lot of other music genres don’t do for me. Rap can make me laugh, but a lot of the time it just makes me want to venture out and do something outrageous. Rock music is for when I want to rock out, it’s that simple.
This song is really upbeat and calm, a definite upside.
Oh, I don’t understand the music video, either. Have fun deciphering this, readers.
