Sounds Of Summer // Collab

Today's post is going to be a collab with one of my very close blogging friends Erin from Everything Erin. I'm so excited at the fact that I'm finally able to collab with her, because I have been reading her blog for quite a while now and I've just fallen in love with it! She's one of the sweetest, most genuine girls and I couldn't be more proud of her and her blog, if I'm honest. Make sure you go and check her out and share the love, please!!
We are going to be sharing 4 artists that we know we will love over the summer months. As soon as we started speaking, the topic of music came up and once we realised we both have pretty similar styles, we decided that this would be the best sort of post to do together. I haven't really spoken about music too much on my blog before, but it's quite a big part of my life, so I'm hopefully going to try and include it a lot more from now on.

One of my favourite female singers of all time has got to be Adele. I know a lot of young girls idolise Queen B, but Adele is without a doubt my Queen. She can do no wrong when it comes to the music that she creates. I don't think there has ever been a song of hers that I don't like, because if I'm honest, they are all just as flawless as the last one! Her vocals are incredible and all of the lyrics means something. A large majority of people nowadays are just focused on a catchy beat and don't get me wrong, that's also amazing, but I think the true talent lies with artists who can produce strong beat's, as well as meaningful lyrics and genuine vocals. She is so true and so kind-hearted. She can literally just stand on the stage at an awards ceremony, hold the microphone and sing into it. Her voice fills up the entire room and has everyone mesmerized by the first note. That is why I love Adele, my friends. A song that she has recently bought out called 'Send My Love (To Your New Lover' is right up there at the top of my list right now. It's perfect for the summertime and it really gets you in the mood to sing along! The video is also a complete masterpiece, can I just say?  Trust me, you need to go and give it a listen. Or, you could always just go and listen to her whole album '25' in general. That's also absolutely fine by me..

Some of you may not have heard of this record producer before, but if you're one of them people, then you need to go and check him out! For those of you who are completely baffled right now, I'm talking about the one and only Alan Walker. He only came onto the music scene last year, but boy, has he made an entrance! A track of his that I've absolutely fallen in love with is called 'Faded'. Even if you don't know that this man is the one behind this musical creation, you have probably had this song blasting out of your speakers at least once over the past few weeks. I can't get enough of it! I've also listened to quite a few cover's of it, from the likes of people, such as Conor Maynard ft. Anth and Beth, who is a YouTuber! It's such an upbeat, quirky song and I love to have it turned right up loud, so I can sing along to it. Believe me when I say it can instantly turn your mood around.

My all time favourite band is The 1975. I can't see why anyone wouldn't love them, if I'm honest! I'm sure that most of you know who they are, (if you don't, then you must have been living under a rock for the past few years), but if you aren't as aware of the majority of the population, then I shall fill you in now. They are an English alternative rock band, originally formed in 2002 (one year after I was born - wow!), which consists of Matt Healy (aka Mr Dreamboat), Adam Hann, Ross Macdonald and George Daniel. I'd say that I've been listening to their music on and off for about 3 years now, but even when I haven't heard from them in a while, I always turn back to them, because as I've mentioned, they genuinely are my favourite boy band. One of their recent releases is 'The Sound', which I've quite honestly fallen in love with and the love grows each time I listen to it. If I had to describe it, I would say that it's intense, quirky and unique. Thank me later when you fall head over heels in love with Matt Healy and start fantasizing about what a relationship with him would be like. Yep, I've totally been there more than 1,000 times...

When I say the words 'very attractive Canadian teenager, who can sing and play the guitar fantastically', who do you think of? Well, obviously it's Shawn Mendes that comes to mind instantly - duhh! I bet he serenades so many girls with that charming smile of his. I'd let him sing to me anyday. He's certainly boyfriend material in my eyes anyway! Anyone else agree with me? Wait, hold on, I'm going off topic here. I'm meant to be discussing how amazing his music is, not how incredibly attractive he is! (That too though..). Certainly all of the teenagers and their mum's have heard of the infamous song 'Stitches' by now? Yeah, I thought so! That was the first song I heard from him and as soon as I found out his name, I quickly become scouring YouTube to try and find more of his tracks! I was not disappointed. Even though I'm only going to be talking about the one for this post, I'm sure he and his music will feature more on my blog sometime in the future! Seriously though, a boy that can play guitar? Gimme some of that, please and thank you! Can I have Matt Healy and Shawn Mendes or is that far too greedy of me? Enough of that business now for one blog post. So, the song I've been loving the most recently and I'm sure one which I shall continue to love is his collaboration with Camila Cabello 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'. I'm not going to lie, when I first heard this song, even though I loved it, I had no idea that Shawn sung it! It's the perfect song for the Summer (hence the title!) and I think both of the artists' voices go so perfectly together as a pair. It's quite a romantic song, but then the chorus gets much louder and more of a dance in your seat, open the car windows fully, throw your hands in the air as you drive along kinda song, which is what I love. In a song, I really like it when it starts off quite slow and meaningful and then it gets much more heated and cheerful!

That's all for today's post, I'm afraid! I really hope you liked reading it, because it's been one of my favourites to write and come up with ideas for. Thank you so much to Erin, once again for collaborating with me - it's been so much fun! Remember to go and check out her post now that you have read this to see what her sounds of summer are going to be.

What songs have you been listening to lately? Do you have any favourite artists or albums?

Lots of love always,
