Music: Currently Listening To...

I've been wanting to write about music more and more on my blog recently, music has always been a huge part of my life. I'm forever trying to find new music as my own personal taste is broadened across many many genres, i don't ever stick to one genre, who does that?! Not me. These albums aren't particularly new, but certainly are what's been on repeat on my iPod for the past few weeks!


Twenty One Pilots - Blurryface (2015)
Now I'm quite new to this duo, I've tried many times to try their music to see how i felt about it, and i simply was confused. I still am, kind of. (Just listen to this album and you'll understand why). They have such a dynamic sound, it's hard to put them into one genre. From a mix of rap, electronic to even an indie sound. It makes no sense to me, but it works SO well. A bizarre mixture of sounds is poured into this new album by theirs and it's genius.
Songs to check out: Ride, Polarize, Fairly Local


Pvris - White Noise (2014)
Continuing with a band i feel like are the first I've heard of their unique sound. With killer vocals from Lynn Gunn, her voice is absolutely gorgeous, which is accompanied by an electronic feel with added guitar and drum, but mostly powered by their electronic sounds which i LOVE. There isn't one song on the album i can fault. Just makes you want to dance, seriously!
Songs to check out: Mirrors, Holy, Smoke


Years & Years - Communion (Soon to be Released)
You probably know these guys from their hit 'King' which is a pretty catchy tune, i knew i had to dive into the group and hear more. Suprisingly they haven't got many tracks, which is why i'm so stoked for this album. I've been hooked on their most recent single Worship, which is full of electronic feels of goodness, i love their sound and I'm excited for their future as a music artist!
Songs to check out: Worship, King


Paramore Self Titled (2013)
I've managed to become re-obsessed with this band, from a previous post you'll know I've grown up listening to these guys and i have worshiped their music since i started teenhood. This whole album just beams the progression they've made since Brand New Eyes, from losing two band members/friends in the process, Paramore have really grown. Their songs give out true passion as they stick to their pop rock feels, with extra pop i would say. But it was an immensely good move they decided and one they'll never regret. 
Songs to check out: Ain't It Fun, Anklebiters, Proof


What have you been listening to recently? I'm always looking for new music to check out, i'm open to anything (i promise!)

  1. I've been loving Twenty One Pilots recently, I'm like you I only just started listening to them. I bought their debut album and I'm really liking it :) I really like PVRIS and I need to properly listen to Paramore, I've occasionally listened to them but I need to take the time to give them a proper listen :)

    Admittedly, I'm not a fan of Paramore and I haven't heard of Twenty One Pilots or Pvris. However, I saw Years and Years when they supported Clean Bandit, but sadly the acoustics let them down!

    I have been listening to Alesso's new track, Cool (I'll be reviewing it on my blog on Wednesday). But in terms of albums, I thoroughly recommend Madeon's 'Adventure' and Capital Cities' 'In a Tidal Wave of Mystery' - they're the only two albums I've really enjoyed in full!

    Interesting post!
