December Playlist | 2018

And just like that, 2018 has come to an end. It's weird because I don't feel like it's the 28th of December but at the same time, I keep on putting 2019 everywhere I need to write down the date. I don't feel sad this year is over, it's been one hell of a ride. In my previous post, I said this was my most challenging year yet, but I think next year is going to top this one.

In 2019 I'm relocating to Madrid, Spain for 5 months to study abroad for a semester. Even writing these words out doesn't seem real. I've literally been waiting for this moment since I first started college, so to finally make my dreams a reality is beyond exciting and surreal. But, as happy as I am about this new chapter in my life, I'm also uncertain about how to maintain the blog in this period. One option is to post photos from my phone (which goes against the perfectly curated aesthetic I have going on here haha), so let me know if that's something you'd even bother scrolling through. I know I'll be posting tons of photos on my Instagram, bus as far as the blog goes, I guess time will tell.

All I know for sure is that 2019 will be all about change, and I'm ready for that. But, since we're still in 2018, it's time to share my December music faves:

If I were told I had the change to go to one more concert for the rest of my life, it would definitely be a Daughter concert. I am just in awe of how gorgeous, mature and resonating their songs are. Somebody explain to me how am I feeling such empathy towards the lyrics in "Love" when I've never been cheated on in my life?! I listen to this beautiful song and I'm connecting to the words in such an understanding manner that it leaves me baffled. I guess you don't have to necessarily go through something to understand it, even some of the lines themselves, when taken out of context can resonate with everybody. Just...listen to this one. You will adore it.

"Losing Interest" just sounds so damn dreamy. Shiloh has a very distinct sound and his songs always have a certain dreamy mood to them. Although the whole song is just like 6 lines on repeat, it still has progression and depth to it. Shiloh plays around with different frequencies with this one, with makes the whole song sound even cooler.

This song, oh my god. "Tadow" was made as improvisation and was completely unrehearsed when it was filmed, which makes it even more magical. 8 minutes of something magical, to be precise. Fkj & Masego are super talented people, big props to them for having such a sharp sense of fluidity.

Khalid is back on my playlist with "Suncity". This song is such a bop, I love it. He can't do wrong in my book. The Spanish parts just add that little touch of something special this song needs. 

"Don't" by Catila has been my go-to dance along song. It's not overly hype, so the head nodding is real with this one. It just makes me feel so damn sassy haha. I guess this month I've had songs that put me in extremely opposite moods.

And that concludes another monthly playlist! Click HERE for the whole playlist on YT or on each individual title above. Happy New Year and happy holidays everyone!
