Recent Music Discoveries

If any of you know me personally, then you will be very much aware of my varying music taste. I literally could listen to, and fall in love with anything from pop, to dance floor, to indie, to rap - it literally differs that much, I'm not even joking! I am constantly on the lookout for new songs to listen to, and sing along to when I'm bored, so I thought today would be the perfect chance to introduce a new element of my life into my blog, seeing as music is such a huge part of me that I love very much. Here are some of my recent music discoveries...

Adele 'Hello' - How would any music post be acceptable without having Adele's new single as the top favourite? I mean, I thought I'd always had a love for Adele, ever since I heard her song 'Chasing Pavements', way back in 2008, but ever since this new track has come out, I've fallen in love with her, and her music all over again. Everyone has been going absolutely crazy over it, and there are so many covers already, but I can completely understand why everyone is so head over heels. There is honestly not a single fault with it. The lyrics, the video, the message, the melody - everything is just perfect. I've had it constantly on repeat ever since it was released, and you can often catch me belting it out at whatever chance I may get. I wouldn't say I was obsessed though.. well, maybe a little!

The 1975 'Me' - Although this is quite an old song by a couple of years, I have only recently discovered it (hence why it's in my recent music discoveries post.. obviously!), but it's really too good to miss out on! I generally love the 1975 as a band in general, but I find that their older songs are better, and more catchy. This one is on my spotify playlist, as I tend to listen to my most loved through there, so you can check it out if you wish, by going onto spotify, either through the app, or the website, and typing in my name, which is 'jade_millard'. I always feel like I can sing along to any songs by this incredibly cool band, but I find this particular track the most catchy! The beat is one that you can easily get into, and honestly, everything about this particular song is just a work of art. As I say, it's a couple of years old, but that doesn't mean anything really, does it?

Jamie Lawson 'Wasn't Expecting That' - Another insanely talented musician is none other than Jamie Lawson. Now, some of you may be slightly unaware of who he is, and I'll have to admit, I was up until a couple of weeks ago too, so don't you worry. In a nutshell, he is a British singer-songwriter, and musician, who is quite new to the music scene, but he has released a couple of songs in the past, and since rereleased this particular song that I'm going to be discussing, as well as bringing out some new ones. 'Wasn't Expecting That' is one of them really beautifully written, created songs that makes you feel calm, and content at the same time. It's quite a romantic one at that, but who doesn't love a good ole romantic sing-song, eh? Everything fits together perfectly, and he's got an incredibly soothing voice, in my opinion! I have his playlist saved on spotify, so if I find anymore tracks that I like, then I shall keep you all informed. Have you heard of Jamie Lawson before?

Ed Sheeran 'Tenerife Sea' - Okay, so one of my favourite singers, and musicians in the entire world is Ed Sheeran. His voice, videos, and performances are flawless, literally. It was incredibly difficult for me to pick just one song that was my favourite, but I have this one on my spotify playlist, and so I thought that it would include it, although I could have so easily picked any of his songs. This is one of those songs that makes me feel so calm, and at peace, because of the lyrics, the melody, and the general vibe I get whenever I listen to it. Once again, it's a couple of years old, but I still love it just as much. I also find it a special song, as I used to go to Tenerife all the time when I was younger, and so it holds an extra special place in my heart, as lame as that may sound to some of you.

Justin Bieber 'Sorry' - This next discovery is probably going to be quite a controversial one. Here's the thing - you either love Justin Bieber, or you don't. I guess he's like marmite in a way? Weird comparison, I know, but that's the only love/hate thing that comes to mind right now. Now, I hate marmite, and I could never imagine myself loving it (trust me, there is a reason as to why I'm saying this), and I used to be the opposite with Justin. When his song 'One Time' came out, back in 2009, I fell in love with him, literally. I remember being in my grandparents living room, going crazy, and maybe even crying, and jumping about to the video, screaming that I loved him, and he was so hot. Yes.. I know. That's what my little 8 year old self got up to in her free time. What a wild child I was.
Anyway, I really loved him back then, right when I first found out about him, and pretty much everyone I went to school with was obsessing over him, and I didn't quite get to the 'obsessive stage', but I got pretty close. Then I started hating him massively, and I'd cry, or go mental if I heard his songs (not in a good way, believe me...), and now since hearing his new single 'Sorry', as guilty as I may feel, I kinda love it. It's one of them tunes that you can just sing, and dance along to, and I mean, how can you not love a good dance track?

MNEK 'Never Forget You' - Oh. My. God. Too much love for this song. Let's all just take a moment of appreciation, shall we? The beginning of the song has some really cute lyrics, and incredible vocals, and then it gradually gets into more of a dance track, with a really catchy beat, and it's honestly so easy to get into. It's catchy, cool, edgy, meaningful, and fun all at the same time. What more can I say really? It's the perfect song if you like something that has a lot of meaning, yet a lot of fun at the same time. I'd never heard of MNEK previously, but he's an incredible vocalist, and teaming up with Zara Larsson in this track was a brilliant choice, honestly. Just go, and give it a listen, but don't blame me if you fall in love!

That's all I'm going to be talking about today, but as it's music, I could genuinely go on about it for hours on end. Do you have any music recommendations that you have been loving? Let me know in the comments below, and I'll be sure to check them out!

Lots of love,

Jade x
