March Playlist | 2017
Sunday, March 26, 2017
Remember when I posted last month's playlist a bit earlier? Yeah, that resulted in me accumulating a lot more new music for this playlist than I expected. I don't think I've ever had this many songs to share with you, so I know this is going to be a mammoth to read, but stick with me!
My absolute favorite this month has to be Tame Impala's The Less I Know The Better. I've been digging the disco vibes this month, so much that I would describe them as... relaxing? I don't know what I love more about this song, the easy-going melody or the goofy lyrics, but either way I've been enjoying it way too much!
Sticking to the "disco theme", the song I've had on repeat these last few days has to be Shy Girls - Trivial Motion (PREP Remix). It's just a fun song to listen to and you'll find yourself shimmying your shoulders by the time you reach 0:30 seconds of the song.
I found Wildfire by SBTRKT over on Tamara's Instagram (her Insta is a whole playlist with cool songs by itself) and I was immediately captivated by the melody. It was unlike anything I've heard before, but it was definitely cool, dare I say a bit seductive? And that's when I had a little SBTRKT listening session and I found Hold On feat. Sampha - a very different sound from Wildfire, but you could still tell who the artist was. Check them out, you won't regret it!
And now, the attack of the Norwegian singers thanks to SKAM (a TV series I'm obsessed with for those of you who aren't aware). Starting off with Kamikaze by Susanne Sundfør - and no, this is not that super annoying song Kamikaze by MØ, but rather a ballad-esque song that grabs your attention from the very beginning with its 80s/90s melody.
Then we have Run by Elsa & Emilie, a song that is perfection for rainy days and gloomy weather. I would describe this one like this - Daughter, but instead of one amazing voice, you have two.
And ending the SKAM songs with my personal favorite - Grizzly Man by Rockettothesky. Where do I even begin with this one... It's not everyone's cup of tea. Not at all. Some would even say this song is boring, or pointless, or stupid. To me, this song represents how my happy place would sound. When I listen to this song, I close my eyes and I feel as if I am floating on air, or I'm lying on a field surrounded by green grass and daisies. This is what I want a song to make me feel, and I know I probably sounded crazy just now, but trust me on this one!
Call Me Out is Sarah Close's first single, and I've been following this lady on Youtube for a while now, so when I saw this in my subscription box I was so happy for her! Definitely check her out, it's such a cute song!
Astrid S finally released a new song and I'm on cloud 9 right now! I looove her music, and Breathe is no exception from that. I know that from the very first listen the chorus will be stuck in your heads. So, you're welcome!
If I had to describe James Arthur's Say You Won't Let Go in one word, that word would be adorable! And it's not even the lyrics that get to me, it's the melody of the song and his voice. Oh so dreamy... and adorable haha.
When I saw that Syd had a solo song I was pleasantly surprised, but then again I knew that it would be an amazing piece of music. All About Me did not disappoint in the slightest. As a self-proclaimed RNB lover, I must admit I've been avoiding this genre for the past few months. And this song reminded me why I loved it in the first place.
And last but not least, the ultimate throwback! Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc. Name a more iconic song, I'll wait. Okay, jokes aside, I've been loving this song through the whole of March. I remember it all started when I was having one of those "throwback music" nights, and this song reminded me of how much I loved it as a kid, but I never thought I was cool enough to listen to a band like Gorillaz. 10+ years later, I'm still not cool enough, but I sure know how to enjoy it a lot more. And I would like to think of this as a sign of destiny, because just recently Gorillaz released new songs, just as I was having their old songs on repeat!
And that's it! What a small playlist, I know haha. Click HERE for the whole playlist on YT, and until next month, ciao!
