Counting up those numbers on the weekly playlist makes me realise, that the year is almost over already. Only one playlists to go and it’s nearly Christmas and then one more and the year is over.
First on the list, Nevermind by German indie pop band Leoniden – yes, like the meteor shower leonids just in German. Their music is ecstatic and wistful. And it’s catchy thanks to guitars, syths and infectious drums. I like it a lot. Nevermind is taken from their upcoming self-titled album, which will be released in February next year.
Funk musician Jodie Abacus released his new single Keep Your Head Down last Friday. It is a funky song about a serious topic. According to the singer from London, the idea came to him observing refugees in LA. He wanted to describe “that absolute feeling of total unease and desperation” and I think he managed very well.
Talking to You is the a song that wasn’t on Izzy Bizu’s album A Moment of Madness (Read my review here). It’s brand new-material from the singer-songwriter. It’s catchier than most of the album songs and therefore might become her next hit since White Tiger. The song is loveable and makes you clap along – perfect to cheer you up on these grey, sad winter days.
American singer-songwriter Ryan Adams announced his upcoming album Prisoner by releasing the first track of it called Do You Still Love Me? After covering all of Taylor Swift’s 1989 in 2015, this is his first original material since 2014. His new album is, according to Adams, about his public divorce from singer Mandy Moore.
Next on the list, a re-release of some kind. hate u love u is Olivia O’Brien’s original version of the hit single i hate u i love you, which she released together with singer Gnash in February 2016. This version features her vocals only and is slightly stripped back. I loved the first version and I also love this one – it’s simply a great song.
Last on the list – Years & Years by Olly Murs. It is the newest single to be taken from his brilliant album 24 HRS, which went to number 1 on the UK charts. And I couldn’t be happier about that. It’s my favourite track from the record of the cheeky Brit, so I hope it will do well. If you haven’t yet, listen to 24HRS in full, it is a good one!
Well, antepenultimate playlist done, huh? Do you enjoy it? Or would you put different songs on it this week? Let me know.
Have a great day!
