Listen To This III | Music

Listen To This is a series where I introduce you to some of my favourite songs at the moment. These are some of the songs that blew my mind, surprised me in some way or are just plainly awesome. I listen to these songs on repeat so often that I wonder how it’s even possible that I’m still not tired of hearing them. As I listen to music every single day and it’s a big part of my life, I feel like it’s important to let other people know some of these songs so they don’t miss out on greatness. This part is almost entirely comprised of winners or contenders of the BBC Sound-poll which was totally accidental and that could indicate that these are awesome artists.
The images contain a link to the corresponding Spotify-page of that song, so you can just go ahead and listen to these right away and I highly encourage you to do so.

A Head Full of Dreams.jpgUp & Up – Coldplay
I’m really liking the new sound of Coldplay. Since their previous album, they’ve gone for a bit of a calmer tone and it’s been working so far. This song is a great example of that new tone.
Though what’s probably the best thing about this song is its videoclip. That clip is done in such a good way with stunning visuals and is very amusing to watch. I also recommend Hymn For The Weekend, their song with Beyoncé, because it’s another great single from their latest album A Head Full of Dreams.

PhaseWeathered – Jack Garratt
One of my friends introduced me to this song and I’m glad that she did. I didn’t know him before that and I must admit that I haven’t listened to any of his other songs, though I should get to that as this song is really great. He apparently won the BBC Sound of 2016, so that should say something, right?
What’s so great about this song is that it starts out slow and builds up momentum towards the middle where it gets more energetic.

Playlist Shuffle | Tag

A tag where we can recommend music to other people? Count me in. I truly enjoy having people get to know some of your favourite songs. That’s also one of the main reasons of my Listen to this-post (which might as well turn into a series as I really liked writing that one). Now for this tag you have to put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs that start to play. Now the tag says that you shouldn’t cheat, but I guess I kind of have to. I won’t be shuffling my entire music library as I haven’t used that one for a while now. Instead I’ll be using the Spotify-playlist I listen to most. At the moment it contains about seventy songs, so I guess that’ll be enough to deliver some random songs.
