Happy Monday everyone. Did you have a nice weekend? As always I have prepared a six song long playlist for your start into a new week with new music. The Songs of the Week today are something for guitar lovers and (alternative) rockers.
The first song on the list is the new single by British indie rock band Bear’s Den. The song is called Auld Wives and is a powerful and moving ballad from their upcoming second album Red Earth & Pouring Rain which will be out by the end of July. Bear’s Den stand out due to their poetic lyrics and calm and beautiful sounds. If you like this song, you should listen to their first album Islands, it’s really good.
Yes, The Stone Roses have released another new track! It has taken them over twenty years but at least they’re coming back wih not only one but two great songs. After All For One, the new one called Beautiful Thing is a funky psychedelic rock song that embraces the great sound for seven minutes without getting blunt.
So Much Sky is by Australian rock band The Temper Trapand it has been taken from their third studio album Thick as Thieves, that was released last Friday. If you’re up for happy soft rock, this is the one for you.
We Turn Red is the newest release of the very well-known Red Hot Chili Peppers and it’s really groovy, I’m glad they’re back.
Local Natives are an indie rock band from the United States and they have shared the first single from their upcoming new album Sunlit Youth. The new song is called Villainy and it’s untypically guitar-less but still melodic and really good.
The last song on this week’s list is Rabbit Hole by punk rockers blink-182 and with this one it’s the lyrics – I can relate to them a lot and together with the typical blink-182 sound it’s just a very enjoyable song.
So, do you like this week’s songs? I would love to hear from you, just leave a comment below.
Also I would like to recommend you Tom Odell’s new album Wrong Crowd, it’s really good and was released last Friday featuring his great single Magnetised, which I have written about here.
