December Tunes

December Tunes

Yeah. I know I’m late. But. Um holy moly. December Tunes means this is the last of my monthly wrap up’s for 2018, meaning at the end of this month I’ll be providing you with my first monthly music wrap up for 2019.

Last year literally sped past, I have huge issues with accepting the year is already over, but here we are, and here’s what I was listening to in December.

Disclaimer
I apologise HUGELY to anyone expecting Christmas music. I’m sorry. I’m not entirely sure what happened, I don’t know if it was the lack of Michael Buble Christmas special on TV or what, but Christmas music just didn’t really happen for me this year. If you’re in desperate need of some Christmas tunes though, make sure you read the post I made all about my favourite Christmas songs, from last year.

Just Friends – Hayden James: This song has been on repeat for me. I don’t know what it is about the song, but it’s been on my playlist for ages, and I’m only now becoming obsessed with it. I listened to it way too much in December, and it’s yet to get old.

Let Me Down Slowly – Alec Benjamin: This song made waves this month. I saw it everywhere, and so many people got to listen to it. I’ve listened to Alec Benjamin a bit before, some of the songs he wrote when he was much younger have been on my phone from high school, but I only just got reconnected to him through these new songs from his album, Narrated For You, which I highly recommend you have a listen to if you haven’t already.

Carried Away – H.E.R: I first saw this song when H.E.R did a video of it for the COLORS YouTube channel, which you know I’m a fan of, so instead of me talking about it, have a listen yourself.

Fairplay – Kiana Lede: Kiana Lede has been sharing her cover videos on YouTube for years, and every now and then I’d watch a few of them when they popped up on my page, though I’ve taken a huge interest in her own original songs that she’s been releasing. This one is definitely my favourite at the moment.

Couples Retreat – Jon Bellion: Of course there was gonna be a song from Jon’s album that he released last month, and at the moment this one is one of my favourites. It’s just so upbeat and has this great bounce to it. It’s been blasted quite a bit in the car.

Nothing Breaks Like A Heart – Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus: I’m sure everyone saw or heard this song somewhere. It seems like such a perfect pairing that took way too long to happen, but I’m glad it did. Mark’s production and song writing style suit Miley’s singing so well and I’ve been loving the product.

Positivo – J Balvin, Michael Brun: Another older song that’s been in many of playlists of mine for a little while, but I was particularly loving it this month. It’s such a hard hitting song, and since I’m finally starting to get over songs like Mi Gente and Swalla, only a bit, I’ve been in need to find a new song to replace them.

Sincerity Is Scary – The 1975: December was definitely a month filled with The 1975 for me, and this song has by far been my favourite ever since I watched the music video for it.

Killer Queen – Queen:  Another post-Bohemian Rhapsody song that I listened to a whole lot more than watching the movie. I also am quite the fan of 5 Seconds of Summer’s cover version of it, though the original will always be iconic.

Invincible – Amine: It wouldn’t be a monthly wrap up without some Amine, and this month’s feature comes in the form of a song from the recent Spiderman animated film. I’ve yet to see the film myself, but the soundtrack is definitely one worth listening to, if not for Post Malone and Swae Lee’s song Sunflower, then for Amine.

Leftovers – Denis Lloyd: This song was another one I stumbled across because of a COLORS video on YouTube. Which you can also enjoy below.

There’s No Way – Lauv, Julia Michaels: This was a song I found myself listening to or humming or singing a ton in December. There’s something about the chorus, Julia’s voice, the lyrics that keep this song stuck in my head. I even had a moment when I thought I’d written a really good chorus, only to realise I’d just re-written the chorus from this song but with different lyrics, that’s how much this song was stuck in my head this month.

Let It Happen – Tame Impala, Soulwax Remix: I listened to this song a lot before going away for Falls Festival in Lorne, which is a whole other post coming soon hopefully. Not because Tame Impala were playing or anything, but more so because I feel like it’s a huge festival vibe, it captures the essence of a festival so perfectly.

Breakaway – Lennon Stella: Lennon Stella’s album is incredible. If you haven’t listened to it, I highly recommend you do, however if you only have time for one song, make sure it’s this one. I had this song on repeat. Like physically pressed the ‘repeat’ button on Spotify for close to an entire day because of how much I love it. It’s so unexpected and different from what I feel people are used to hearing from the Stella sisters as a duo, and I love it so much.

Rhymes Like Dimes – MF DOOM, DJ Cucumber Slice: This is a huge classic for me. MF DOOM is a hero, and this song never fails to pipe me up and put me in a good mood.

Bad Feeling – Joy Crookes: If you didn’t read my post all about Joy Crookes, now is the perfect time to check it out. This song is one of my favourites.

So that’s what I was listening to in December. I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season and a great New Year’s. Here’s to more tunes in 2019.

October Tunes

October Tunes

It’s becoming alarming how quickly the year is coming to an end, but the silver lining at the end of every month, is that I get another opportunity to share some of my favourite music with you all!

Regardless of the fact that October ending means there’s only two months left in the year, it means I get to share what music I was loving this month, and this month I was really loving music. University coming to an end meant that I was listening to tunes on end while procrastinating doing my assignments and homework, listening to my study playlist when I eventually go around to doing some work and then having the time to blast music 24/7 after finishing up for the year. PLUS, October was a great month for new releases and new discoveries, so there’s always that to look forward to.

Hopefully you find something you enjoy on this playlist, let me know what you were listening to during October!

CONVERSATIONS WITH MY WIFE – JON BELLION: JON’S RELEASING AN ALBUM NEXT MONTH. I don’t know if you’ve caught it, but I have a huge adoration/admiration/obsession for Jon Bellion, and I nearly screamed when he posted that this song was up on his Spotify. It’s everything I expected from Jon, but heaps more and I love it. The production is amazing, out of this world, but the lyrics don’t suffer, they’re intense and catchy and everything just works together perfectly. Listen to this song. It’s kinda like going to a digital church.

Stay – Mac Ayres: I can’t take any credit for this. My friend/coworker/guitarist showed me this artist one day at work, and I was instantly obsessed. I believe the term is ‘milky’ but ‘smooth’, ‘warm’ and ‘toasty’ also suffice enough to even try describing this guy’s voice. It’s insane. That too, majority of his songs feature that really sweet, vintage guitar tone that you all know I love talking on and on about. It’s a ‘Daniel Caesar-type’ mood, so if you’re a fan of Daniel Caesar, Sabrina Claudio, Omar Apollo or boy pablo, definitely check Mac Ayres out.

Water on the Bridge – Chelsea Cutler: I discovered this artist through another artist I’ve been loving for a while, Christian French. You can read the post I did about Christian HERE. Christian is currently on tour, and he’s supporting Chelsea Cutler, so while I was writing up his post, I decided to have a listen to some of her music, and while I had heard a one of her songs before, I’d never really listened to anything else or done any further investigating. Boy do I regret that. Chelsea has some incredible songs, but this song is by far my favourite. It’s so ethereal and the lyrics are so sad and angry at the same time and I love it. Have a listen.

Girls Need Love – Summer Walker: I was introduced to this artist by a friend from uni who, get this, ‘heard it and thought I’d really like it’. That’s one of my favourite things in the world, when people hear a song and think you’d appreciate it and go out of their way to let you know you should listen to it. Love that. Anyway. Summer Walker. Wait for that post to come, because trust me, it’s coming. This song is a bop. A smooth, RnB bop. SZA, Kehlani, H.E.R type bop. Get around it.

If Tomorrow Never Comes – Swiss, Etana: Okay. If Tomorrow Never Comes by Ronan Keating is one of my favourite songs. It’s a family favourite. On the other hand, reggae is one of my favourite genres. Island music? All over it, as is my family. A reggae, island cover of If Tomorrow Never Comes? I’m done. This song made my jaw drop, and it’s nothing spectacular in terms of how they switch it up or anything, because you know what song it is immediately, the singers are all just gorgeous and inject that island quality singing into the song, and this song just makes me feel all warm and toasty inside.

Where Did I Go? – Jorja Smith: Jorja Smith needs no introduction here on the blog so I’m not gonna give it. All I’ve going to say, is her album is the gift that keeps on giving. It’s like each song is tailored to be a single all on it’s own, released at just the right moment, when in reality, every single song is just a hit. Where Did I Go is my latest obsession from the Lost & Found album.

MICHUUL. – Duckwrth: I overheard this song while I was at the gym. The somewhat dancehall, beat, layered vocals and simple synths somehow reached me over my own music, so much so that I pulled out my headphones and shazaam’d the song. It’s such a ridiculously good, groovy tribute to Michael Jackson, without going out of it’s way to be over sentimental. As a huge Michael Jackson fan, I love this song.

THUG LIFE – BROCKHAMPTON: It took me a while to get through the recent BROCKHAMPTON album, but when I did I was easily able to pick THUG LIFE as my favourite song from it. I just really love the vocals on it and the production on a whole.

Hocus Pocus – Clark Beckham: I discovered Clark through my favourite musician on the planet, Jon Bellion. If you missed my post all about Clark Beckham, had a read of that, it’s all you need to understand how much I love this artist. This song in particular, is my absolute favourite and I get shivers every time I hear it.

For How Long – RINI: DUDES. I’ve shared some of RINI’s music on here before, but next month, I’m going to his EP Launch concert!! I didn’t really know anyone else who listened to his music, and so told one of my friends at work, the same friend who plays guitar for me, and mentioned that he was on a list of musicians and songs I had given my friend to listen to, and he recognised the name, mentioned that he actually loved him, and we basically bought out tickets at my desk at work, so now I’m super, duper keen.

I Don’t Lack Imagination – E^ST: This song was a Triple J discovery for me personally. I’m starting to think I need to seriously look into E^ST and the rest of her songs, because so far of the two that have made their way onto the radio and become somewhat popular, she’s been two for two and they’ve both been amazing. This one especially.

Wonderful – Mullaly: This is one of my favourite pre pre-game songs. Pre pre-game, as in, getting ready for the pre-game. Like doing your makeup with your friends or by yourself. I have an entire playlist dedicated to that specific mood, check it out on my Spotify. It’s a really up-beat, percussive song, and I love how bouncy it is, that said, it’s incredibly easy to sing along to. It’s a very happy song.

Tadow – Masego, FKJ: cannot wait to see Masego at Laneway Festival in February next year (with Mia???). Tadow was one of the first songs I ever heard from Masego, and it’s one of my favourites. I heard it playing at a bar I was doing a gig at before we got on stage and made a mental note to add it to some of my playlists, and ever since then I’ve been loving it even more.

Beautiful – Bazzi: This particular song makes the cut because of my little sister. Somehow she managed to get the lyrics oh so incredibly wrong, yet sing them with all the confidence she had, so because of how many times I spent correcting her, I ended up listening to the song over and over again and adding it to playlists, then listening to it in the car, on the way to work and university, and that’s how it’s on this list.

Dangerous – Kaien Cruz: I have not a single clue how I came across this song, but I have, and no one I’ve asked knows it. If you do know this song, please leave me a comment because I need someone to obsess over it with. This song is incredible. It’s an injustice that more people haven’t heard it.

Social Jungle – Herizen: After recently following Herizen on Instagram after my The Get Down binge, I’ve been keeping tabs on her music career. This song, is amazing. This song has such an slinky, underground vibe, and Herizen’s voice fits the style perfectly. She has another song, Come Over To My House, that’s equally as fitting, I recommend you have a listen to both of the songs!

Bad – Lennon Stella: Lennon Stella. 1/2 of the duo, Lennon and Maisy, who I’ve been in love with for quite a few years now. I’ve always loved both their voices, but it seems Lennon, the eldest, is making her moves musically right now, and I’m loving it. She recently featured on a song with Liam Payne and Jonas Blue, but I don’t love it half as much as I love this song. This song is beautiful. It’s so sweet sonically, but the lyrics are a really strong contrast to the music, and I’m all about it.

when the party’s over – billie eilish: I feel like this song kind of shut down the world. For the first couple of days after it was released, I couldn’t look through my Instagram stories without seeing someone sharing it. The first time I heard it gave me major nostalgia. Billie actually sang this song back in April at her concert, and she sang it so beautifully, and as soon as I heard it I messaged my friends who I went with to see if they realised it was the same song we heard all those months ago. This is one of my favourite Billie Eilish songs to date.

So that’s what I was listening to in October! If you loved any of these songs, let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear what you were listening to this month!

September Tunes

September Tunes

Hello everyone, and welcome to the end of another month. Today’s post is a monthly feature here on You Should Hear, and that’s my Monthly Tunes, where I share the songs I was listening to for the past month. I hope you find some new songs to listen to, here’s what I was loving in September.

My Hands – Running Touch: I couldn’t tell you what it is about this song, but it’s addictive. I don’t know if it’s the piano in the back that seems so simple but carries the entire song, the moody vocals or the mystery that surrounds Running Touch and who he is as an artist in general. This song’s currently at the top of my Visualify for this month.

Blinded By Your Grace Pt. 1 – Stormzy: This song gives me chills every time I hear it. I’m a sucker for some clean Rhodes piano, a smooth harmonies and vocals and this song has all of that and more.

First Week – Vera Blue: Announcement. As much as I love listening to a few of Vera Blue’s music, I wasn’t aware of this song, until one of my best friends from university uploaded a cover of it on SoundCloud, which you can find HERE. I can guarantee that close to 50 of those plays are me and me alone, I’ve bee obsessed with the song ever since.

Meditate – Vanessa: If you missed my post about this song, check it out. Mia recommended me the song, and I’ve been loving it since I gave it a listen. It’s such a hard hitting song, and as harsh as it sounds, I rarely expect anything as good as Meditate from YouTubers.

WHY? – Amine: ONEPOINTFIVE dropped last month, but I’m still loving it. Heaps. The album is filled to the brim with catchy hooks and riffs, and this song is no different.

Ghost – Tentendo, Blasko: If I could talk about this song more, I would. Tentendo is quickly becoming one of my all time favourite producers, purely because of this song. I’ve already introduced his music to the rest of my friends and while I’m slightly aggressive in my approach, I’m super passionate about this song. I love it so much, especially this month.

TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME – The 1975: Mixed reviews about this one. My friend/drummer hates it, because ‘The 1975 don’t do dance-hall‘ but I for one love it. It may just be that I love a good dance-hall beat regardless of who does it, but I genuinely also enjoy this song, as well as the music video. I think it’s a really good tune, and I don’t really have too much of an issue with The 1975 branching out as far as they are with their new music.

Sleep On The Floor – The Lumineers: This. song. makes. me. weep. This song, has me either curled up in a ball, crying on the floor, screaming the lyrics at the top of my lungs while home alone or wishing I was travelling for months on end. Why? Because Indy Blue set out to ruin my life with her travel video, which had this song in the background. The first time I heard this I was violently thrown back to June last year when my family and I were on a tour through the mid-west of the USA on a bus, finding ourselves in the middle of giant national parks, travelling in a bus for seven or eight hours a day. I loved it.

 

Warning – Cookin’ On 3 Burners, Kaiit: One of my friends introduced me to this song when we were trying to find inspo for songs to perform and write ourselves. This is a vibe. Kaiit, is a vibe. Cookin’ On 3 Burners, are a vibe. Listen to Warning.

Just A Stranger – Kali Uchis, Steve Lacy: I’ve continued to really, really like this song. Steve Lacy adds a little extra touch to the song, and makes it that much better for me. It’s a groover.

Blue Lights (RISE Recording) – Jorja Smith:  We all know how much I love Jorja. Your grandmother knows how much I love Jorja. (Mia and I are seeing this gal live next year in February, together. Mia and I. Together. Mia, my friends and I. At a festival together. With Jorja.) I kinda like the RISE Recording a lil bit more than the original, and I’m not sure why. There are a couple more elements to this version of the song that I think just add a bit more. We know I love a funky drum kit, and they’ve added that to this song, which I think really makes it a lot stronger, and I can’t imagine how this would sound live.

Pine & Ginger – AMindi K. Fro$t, Tessellated, Valleyz: What a cool song. Kinda makes me want to go to Hawaii or some tropical island, just so I could bring my GoPro and make a video for it, and throw this song in the background.

Yellow – Amine, Nelly: This song is from Good For You, so relatively an old song on the scale of Amine’s releases, but I’ve rediscovered it and am loving it.

1999 WILDFIRE – BROCKHAMPTON: As much as I like the new album, while I wait till I have a minute to listen to the entire thing in one sitting, I’m thoroughly enjoying their other music, specifically this song. It kinda reminds me of some RnB music from the early 2000’s, like Outkast type stuff.

Alignments – Paige: If you haven’t checked out Paige yet, you’ve clearly ignored my past couple of times mentioning her and her music, so hopefully third times lucky and you give her a listen. This song is a mood. It’s catchy too so it’s been stuck in my head for a while. I was also able to send Paige some interview questions so you can bet I was listening to this song on repeat while writing that post up…

Soaked – Bene: BENE. Holy moly. This song. I have no words for this song. Actually, that’s a lie, I have an entire post, read that instead.

Worry Bout A Thing – Jakubi: It’s been a hot minute, but Jakubi finally released some new music, and I have to say, they did not disappoint. I’ve been waiting for new music from them and this song is incredible. It’s so groovy, and it was only released on the 21st of the month I believe, so only just made the cut for this playlist.

So that’s what I’ve been listening to this month. Let me know if you gave any of these songs a listen, and I’d love to know what you were listening to in September!

August Tunes

August Tunes

Wow wow wow, August has come to an end, and I for one, am not mad.

While it was a fun month in regards to gigs (peep the post) and my birthday, it was a hectic month, I may have caught myself up on some Mercury retrograde as a way to explain some of the crap that was happening, and I got bowled over by university assignments I didn’t even know existed, but hey, it was a fun month.

As much as I hate the ridiculous speed with which we are hurtling towards the end of the year, the best thing about the month coming to an end, is that I get to share my favourite music with you all again. As I mentioned in my last monthly tunes, July was a good month for music, and August was pretty decent too. Here’s what I was listening to this month.

Don’t Matter To Me – Drake, Michael Jackson: I initially only listened to this song because I was keen to hear what was done to Michael’s voice. You may or may not know that I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan, as has been passed down to me from my dad, and I was incredibly interested to hear how his vocals may have been manipulated, which they definitely have been. I knew straight away it was his voice, but Drake and his producers and engineers have definitely mixed and mastered his voice to make it fit the song a bit better. That said, I love the song. I love it heaps. I find myself listening to it all the time, I don’t have it in myself to skip it and I always sing MJ’s part around the house.

Younger – Ruel: Ruel is killing it. If not for the Instagram pictures with Shawn Mendes and Billie Eilish proving just how big he’s moving up, then the release of his song Younger is definitely a sign. It’s such a good song, and from someone so young, it’s a beautiful story about friendship, that I definitely recommend you give a listen. Ruel is one of Australia’s greatest exports at the moment in my humble opinion.

One More Time – Jon Bellion: If you missed my post all about Jon Bellion, what are you doing? I’ve been in love with Jon Bellion for a couple of years now, but I’ve found that over time I start finding different songs to obsess over, and this month One More Time was one of them. I can’t count the amount of times I’ve been alone at home, screaming the lyrics “Screw your pops let’s get some iHop” all on my own. Also my Jon Bellion hoodie came, and despite the fact that it’s literally huge and comes down to my thighs, I love it.

Come When I Call – John Mayer: I’ve always been a fan of John Mayer. It’s been a long running relationship but I can’t say he’s one of the musicians I jump to play when I’m in charge of the AUX chord. That said, my two friends who play guitar and drums for me are huge fans, and whenever we’re driving anywhere in one of their cars, the boys can’t resist playing some of his music. Considering I was travelling with them for a gig and rehearsals and food quite a bit this month I got a good dose of John Mayer complete with the two of them screeching the guitar solos and reciting his mid song monologues word for word, and this song has wriggled it’s way onto some of my personal playlists.

All Time Low (Acoustic) – Jon Bellion: BOY. This acoustic version, may just be my favourite. At one point I thought the Run Wild acoustic was my favourite, but then I found myself really really feeling this one, especially at the end when Clarke goes off on that high harmony. Give yourself a treat, it’ll be so good for your soul, trust me.

WHY? – Amine: If you missed my Amine post, a quick review of his album ONEPOINTFIVE, maybe check it out. I nearly lost all of my shit when he dropped this with little to no warning, and I’m still obsessing over it.

SHINE – Amine: See prior song.

REEL IT IN – Amine: See last two previous songs.

Losing Your Mind – Raury, Jaden Smith: Another song that has another post you can check out. This song is from The Get Down soundtrack, and if you missed my post about the TV show, just know that it’s life changing, life altering, mind blowing stuff. Such good music, such a beautiful story, amazing cast, it’s got everything for me, and I love it so much.

Once – Maren Morris:  Honestly, since seeing Maren live when I went for Niall Horan’s concert, I’ve become a bit of fan. For such a small gal she’s a bloody powerhouse, and this song is probably one of her best in my opinion. Between this song and Rich I have all the Maren Morris songs I need to get me going through any mood that I’m in.

Leave A Light On – Tom Walker: This was a very new one for me. It came on the radio a couple days ago and at the same time both my mum and I asked the other what it was. It’s really powerful and Tom’s voice is so beautiful, which you get to hear to it’s full effect in the chorus. It’s a really hard hitting song, but gets you so emotional if you let it. Best believe I shazaam’d this song real fast.

Everybody Wants To Rule The World – Tears For Fears: A classic. An icon. An anthem for the ages. I don’t know why, but this song suddenly popped into my head at the start of the month and it has not left. It’s still there. Right now. There’s definitely a One Direction song heavily inspired by this song as well that I can’t quite figure out, so it’s a mix of nostalgia and teenage adrenaline that rushes through my blood every time I hear it.

Set Me Free – Herizen Guardiola: Another one from The Get Down, but this one is probably my favourite. Of all time. It’s a huge turning point for Herizen’s character and she genuinely flourishes and has a mini glow up over the span of this song and I felt proud as heck watching it. It’s such a funky song considering it’s meant to be a traditional gospel song, but I love it. Love it, love it, love it.

I’ll Keep My Light In My Window – Mylene Cruz & The Soul Madonnas: This song is from Season 2 of The Get Down, another by Herizen’s character, Mylene and it’s a beautiful ballad that transforms into a bop of a disco beat. If you’re down with some amazing harmonies, a church organ that gives you shivers, and a funky disco tune that makes you happy regardless of how crappy your day has been, check out this song.

Freaks and Geeks – Childish Gambino: This was a great day. This song was taken off Spotify for a little while, or at least the version I had in all my playlists, and whenever i searched for it, it never came up, and I was crushed. It’s definitely not a PG13 song, but nonetheless I have this song memorised back to front, so when I was scrolling through Donald’s Spotify page and came across this song sitting there, I nearly screamed and added it to nearly every single one of my playlists.

Jim Morrison – Jon Bellion: Another song by my man Jon. This song is the self proclaimed ‘flex’ song and I can’t find anything wrong with that description. It’s another one of my favourites, not only this month but for quite a while. You have to give this one a listen, it’s fantastic, a power song, you can’t help but feel like a legend when you listen to this song. If this song comes on while I’m walking around the city, the chances of me refusing to move out of someone’s way and interrupting my steady march increases by 200%.

sweetener – Ariana Grande: Ariana Grande, did that. This song is the cutest thing I’ve ever heard, and that’s considering I’ve listened to the rest of the album too. Okay, Pete Davidson is probably the cutest song on the album, but the entire album is a bop. She goes so hard on this album, in the sweetest way, and all the songs are such beats that literally flash in neon signs “ARIANA GRANDE IS IN LOVE”. She definitely touches on a couple of more serious topics throughout the album, but the overwhelming feeling of ‘I’m in love, here’s more than ten songs to prove it to you all’ is so there.

Because Of You – Ne-Yo: I was looking for songs to sample at the start of the month, and somehow I landed on this song. My man Ne-Yo shaped my childhood, and this song was one of them to be quite honest with you. You’d be hard to find me not singing along to this with all the passion I can muster whenever it comes on.

What Kind Of Man – Florence And The Machine: This song is the perfect definition of tension and building and the climax you spend the first entire minute of the song waiting for. It’s so good. I’m always partial to a bit of Florence And The Machine, so I was not disappointed when Triple J had this song included in their Saturday roster, because it made my 9-5 day a bit better.

Who’s Loving You – Jackson 5: I heard this song so much purely because it was on the setlist for my gig. I heard the original version, but I definitely heard The Sapphires version way more, considering it’s another song that my guitarist is obsessed with. If you haven’t watched The Sapphires, firstly, what are you doing? Secondly, I’m sorry. Such a great Australian movie, the best music, definitely check it out, 100% 10/10 would recommend.

Cool Girl – Tove Lo: Definitely not a new release or anything, but I was feeling this song this month. It’s such a no nonsense song, you gotta feel kinda powerful while listening to this song. Again, another song that makes me somewhat of a moving hazard if I’m listening to it while walking through the city.

That was it for August! Definitely listened to heaps of music this month, especially considering I decided to do a huge clean-out of my Spotify playlists during August. It was fun and I rediscovered a bunch of tunes that I love. Let me know what you were listening to in August, I’d love to know!
