City of stars, are you shining just for me?

A post about current music favourites is way overdue. I've been jotting down names to include here for a little while, I'm going to narrow it down purely to music that is new or just new to me, I'll save the old favourites for another day.

The surprising thing about this bunch, for me, is that they are mostly male vocalists. I nearly always listen to female singers, not on purpose but that's just what I end up liking.

Keaton Henson


Super sad, all of his songs are, that's why we love him I guess. But the lyrics are beautiful.

Nick Cave


I only really knew about him because of the (fab) song he did with PJ Harvey, I heard this one because it's in the film 'Wings Of Desire' which we watched at uni.

Ben Howard


Of course Ben Howard isn't new to me but it's new that I've started listening to his music.

Sin Fang


Yes! Nice! I discovered his music through this song (which I LOVE). 

Seabear


The same goes for Seabear. I think I'm going to make a post about my favourite Icelandic musicians because the list is getting quite long.

London Grammar


I've listened to London Grammar for years but new songs!!!

Anaïs Mitchell


A completely new discovery, my friend introduced me to her. She has the most pure voice and her lyrics are super.

Pierce the Veil


Pierce the Veil go back to when I was like 14 or 15, but there are a couple of new songs that I heard for the first time the other day. 

Eisley


They have a new album coming out soon! This song is so sweet, Sherri's dark lullaby to her daughters.

La La Land


I saw La La Land with my friends the other week, listening to the soundtrack lots because it's great!!

  1. AH! The speakers on my PC aren't currently around...but by the looks of it, you have some pretty great songs here! I think that just means I'll have to come back for a second visit.

    I've been loving Clean Bandit- Rockabye ft. Sean-Paul and Anna-Marie! And, I still haven't gone to see La La Land, but I plan on fixing that this week.
