Break is over and I am back. I decided to do this because while I do listen to a lot of Metalcore and harder rock, I have many other artists in my library that don’t really get enough recognition. So today I am going to give those artists some much-needed love by going through my songs on Spotify and talking about the first five songs that I stop on.
1. “Friendly Enemies” by Jule Vera: As one of the more interestingly unique songs on this album, I truly do appreciate it. The entire album is a refreshing indie rock sound and I think vocally, Ansley Newman is incredible and deserves many props for her sound. This song is also much more of a rock song and therefore highlights the bands versatility which is always something to appreciate.
2. “Too Young To Feel This Old” by You Me At Six: I enjoy the intro to this song a lot. I can picture experiencing it live and the stage lighting and that is always nice to have with a song. I also really enjoy the progression of the song through the verse, bridge, and chorus. It honestly reminds me of a hill, that sounds super dumb but if you listen to the song you will completely get it. The song is a part of Cavalier Youth and while the album as a whole is a masterpiece, this song is an incredible addition to it.
3. “Hey Rachel” by As It Is: Writing a song about your sibling? I don’t know about you but this is the only song that I know with that subject matter. The band also does a really great job of making a really sad song sound super upbeat and happy. It definitely gets stuck in your head and gets your head bopping. Is it my favorite song by As It Is? No, but overall it is unique both technically and lyrically which can’t be overlooked.
4. “Mad At Myself” by Issues: This was the first song by Issues that I ever heard when I looked them up in 2015and I loved it from the get go. While I don’t really listen to the band anymore, Tyler Carter still has one of the best voices out there in my opinion and this track highlights his talents extremely well. This song is on my list of favorite songs in general and I don’t think that it is going anywhere anytime soon.
5. “Uptown Girl” by Billy Joel: This song is a true treasure and I will always get super hyped up when it plays. Anyone who says that they can get through this song without singing or humming along is most definitely lying because it’s impossible. I also never dance and you really can’t help but want to jump around and dance with someone when this song plays.
Well those were my shuffles! I know it wasn’t much but I will most definitely get back into the habit of posting and keeping up with things! I hope you enjoyed it and keep coming back for more!
