I have listened to a lot of amazing music this year and I have stumbled across a few bands and artists I have never heard of before or I never really listened to before.
Not all of those bands released new music or a new album in 2015 but I have found them in the last 12 months. Maybe you have already read about some of them on my blog. There are also countless other superb bands I love but I could never fit all of them in this post.
So here we go.
In spring I got their album AM from my best friend and after that I listened to four of their songs on repeat. That was it for a while but then I listened to a bit more and a bit more. I love AM and all the songs on their and recently I bought the album Suck It And See which is definitely amazing but not quite as good as AM.
Favourite songs: R U Mine, I Wanna Be Yours, Do I Wanna Know, Knee Socks, 505
Mumford & Sons
As I wrote here I’ve known them for quite some time but I never really listened to all their albums or too more than just a few songs but then I listened to a few more and then again a few more and so on.
I’m really excited because I’m going to see them live in May and before that I definitely want to listen to all the other songs I haven’t listened to yet.
Favourite songs: Little Lion Man, Hopeless Wanderer, Dust Bowl Dance, The Cave, I Gave You All
I didn’t know anything about her before her album Badlands dropped and after that it still took me a while to actually listen to her music but then I did it and slowly fell in love. Know I love her so much, as a person and as a musician.
Her lyrics are amazing, captivating, her style is great. I wish I could see her live.
Favourite songs: Gasoline, Control, Drive, Ghost, New Americana
I wrote a bit about Halsey’s album Badlands here.
Twenty One Pilots
For some reason I had never heard of Twenty One Pilots before, what was it, June? or July? this year. But somehow I followed the right blogs on tumblr and twitter and suddenly a lot of people talked about them and I read some lyrics and knew I HAD to listen to a lot of their stuff.
And I did. I listened to all their albums and I’m going on a concert in less than two months and I love them a lot.
Their lyrics are amazing. Often so sad but so important, so inspiring, so hearbreaking. I love their style, it’s so different and many of their songs are different than others.
Also, Josh and Tyler are real cuties.
Favourite album: Blurry Face or Twenty One Pilots
Favourite songs: Stressed Out, Kitchen Sink, Fake You Out, Friend please, Migraine, Isle of Flightless Birds
Panic! At The Disco
I knew of P!ATD before but I never listened to much of their music. I knew I Write Sins Not Tragedies and one or two others songs but that was it. Somehow I got the idea to watch hours on end of their YouTube videos at some point last autumn and now I know a lot more.
I love their old and new stuff and I’m really excited for them to release their new album, Death of a Bachelor, in January.
Favourite songs: Nicotine, Nine in the Afternoon, Emperor’s New Clothes, Girls/Girls/Boys, This Is Gospel
I hope you’ve listened to some great songs this year too. I’m sure there will be more of it in 2016.
See you soon ❤
