April Playlist | 2018

Is it just me or was April a *hella* long month? Or maybe I got that impression because this month was a really busy one and we all know how much I love my "chill, laid-back" style of living. But hey, it's time to try something new once in a while! I posted about this on Instagram but I guess I should mention it here too because it's sort of an excuse about why I haven't been posting a lot on the blog recently - I volunteered for Skopje Film Festival and had a great time doing it, I don't think I've ever seen so many movies in a span of a week. But, I've been focusing my time and energy there and on University, which left me with no free time or any creative thoughts. But, I'm hoping that will change in May (even though I have some "lovely" exams this upcoming month), and if not - bear with me! Anyhow, time to get on with the playlist!

I've already said in past playlists that I'm not a big fan of The Weeknd's new sound and that I desperately need him to go back to his Trilogy roots. So, you can guess how fricking excited I was when I played the first track from the My Dear Melancholy, album. And that excitement grew stronger and stronger with each passing track, so much so that I literally started jumping around my room. I'm sad about the lyrics and the meaning behind the songs but at the same time, I'm selfishly happy because it made him go back to where he started and the sound that made me fall in love with his music. Although I love every song from this album, my absolute favorite has to be "Wasted Times". Oh, how I love every bit of that song, especially the bridge - literal chills down my spine.

 I started off not liking this next song, but the beat stayed in the back of my head so I decided to give it another chance. Here we are, one month later, still obsessing over how much Khalid and Normani sound amazing together. Their song "Love Lies" is the perfect mix of captivating vocals and a catchy beat which we loooove! I'm so glad Khalid is getting the recognition he deserves, I feel like a proud mom.

Years and Years released their new song "Sanctify" last month and of course I've had it on repeat since the day it came out. I LIVE for the whole Britney Spears pop vibes, it's different for them but also it's a very fresh take on their style. And to make things even better - they announced their upcoming album! Mark your calendars people, July 6th is THE day!

From time to time I allow myself to be hypnotized by Tame Impala's music and try to find new songs I haven't heard from them before. I admit, I'm only at the surface when it comes to their music, but I'm loving it so far. They are definitely a *mood*, it's not just music you play when you're feeling whatever, it's a specific mood that I just can't explain and if you listen to Tame Impala I think you would agree with me too. This time around I'm loving "List of People (To Try and Forget About)". What a title, am I right?

Daniel Caesar has a special place in my heart, and his collaboration with H.E.R. for "Best Part" (followed with that STUNNING video) made me cry tears of joy. The song is just gorgeous from start to finish, I can't put it into words how mesmerizing I find it. Definitely, give it a listen!

And that concludes the April Playlist! Click on the individual titles above, or just click HERE for the playlist on Youtube. Until next time, bye bye!
