I am always on the hunt for new music. Especially music with great lyrics that inspire me and have an awesome sound.
I need a song that knocks me in the gut and leaves me reeling for days. I’ve recently found two of these types of songs.
First up: Habits by Tove Lo
This is fucking amazing video, first off. The vocals are the best I’ve heard in YEARS. She’s such an amazing singer. I can’t wait until she’s got a full length album. I really feel like there’s a Swedish music invasion on the horizon.
And the hook is so freaking infectious! I also love how it’s a different and fresh take on a broken heart. I love it.
Not to mention it perfectly sums up my main character in my novel. Could be her theme song.
He’s an English lad who won songwriter of the year from the Musicians Benevolent Fund and was one of 8 students from Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts to have a one on one with Paul McCartney. Damn. And he’s only 22.
I love his sound. It feels like swimming in summer. The guitar slides are mesmerizing. His voice is sterile sounding in a good way. It also seems to float above the sound like a traveling cloud. Also his other tracks are great too. I love compliment your soul, wanna know, and ghost. I can’t stop listening to him.
Check him out.
Got any tracks that you’re stuck on this week? Leave me suggestions in the comments.
