Do you ever hear a song that brings you back to a moment... a vulnerable moment. A song that seems like it was just meant for you.. There are those few rare occasions when I hear a song that hits me so hard and it blows my mind. I love how music can do that for a person.. That moment when it hits you.. I'm not the only one who has felt the way I'm feeling, someone gets it. When I heard James Hersey's song Coming over (Filous Remix) - featured below- I had one of those moments. The song is basically about a person who loves someone so deeply but they have some things to work through.. he so desperately wants her to be willing to and feel the same. Its the perfect calm, happy and hopeful song for ANYONE who has felt this way. His songs.. are a reminder to keep on keeping on. Every song I have heard is about a issue or a topic of endurance, love and happiness.. sappy? Nah seriously go listen you'll be obsessed and hey it may help you through a life situation.
Last summer I was listening to a playlist on Spotify and heard a song come on. I instantly looked at my phone to see who it was and it was a band called Flor. The song was called "Ocean" (featured blow). This song was full of raw emotion and tranquil vibes. From then, on I have been a huge fan of them! They offer the perfect, happy/chill vibes. I can't really describe their sound, its a mix of indie,pop, with a hint of electronic and a dash of AMAZING. Honestly check them out. Whether you're feeling kind of down , need a pick me up or you're about to hit the road. They will turn your day around.
I just recently discovered this band, Oh Wonder. They formed in London just last year, (2014) and this duo will set the mood for those long summer road trips. It's pretty cool because they have been releasing a song each month for the last year! With their debut album coming in September... With the sound close to the XX with a more upbeat vibe, you will be ready to get in your car and just drive.
My FAVORITE band of all time is The Maine. The perfect flow of pop-punk-rock. Just everything about them and their music is great. Every album is ever changing with them, it just goes to show how much they have grown and continue to as a band. Their newest album due March 31 American candy...is going to be so rad guys. They released the hit single "English girls" Just one listen and you know its going to be full of good vibes. Perfect for that summertime, windows down, weather we are all longing for. Check them out, you won't regret it.
Guys. If you havent heard Chet Faker, all I can say is you are missing out. being an Australian electronica musician, this guy is the perfect blend of super chill, deep vibes. His hit single Gold I first heard on Vh1 Top 20 count down... It was a typical morning.. Lookbook, Coffee and Vh1 top 20 countdown. All the sudden Gold came on, I was like " what is this!? " It blew my mind and I ended up buying his new album Built On Glass. Check out some of his jammzz below.
