Music Video for Believer – out now!

January 31st of this year Imagine Dragons released their single “Believer”!

Believer is a song with, in my eyes, multiple different meanings – a different one with each verse. Overall, “Believer” is about pain and how it can change your viewpoints and/or make you realize things you maybe haven’t given thought to before.

As of today, March 7th, the music video for “Believer” has been released!

The music video portrays Dan Reynolds combating Matt Eastin in a boxing match as a young boy scribbles in a notebook some ways away. What I see is that these three people are actually the same man – he, as a boy, draws on a notebook as the adult version of himself fights the older adult version. What’s even stranger is that these adult men seem to be computer generated, each with the symbol ‘ƎE’ tattooed on their chest.

New Song from The Maine!

Over the weekend, The Maine dropped a track from their upcoming album, Lovely Little Lonely.

March 2nd, the new track “Black Butterflies and Deja Vu” was uploaded onto The Maines youtube account, and, as of  Saturday, is now available to purchase on iTunes/Google Play and able to stream on Spotify!

“Black Butterflies and Deja Vu” is a lovely song with adorable lyrics, such as ‘I loose my voice when I look at you’, ‘hoping for the right words, waiting for the right words’, and ‘can’t find the sound under my tongue when I look at you.’

The meaning is apparent, being tongue tied when seeing that one person that causes those (black) butterflies to flutter around in your stomach. You may have been in association with this person a countless number of times, so these butterflies may seem like deja vu – yet the continue to fly each time.

Listen to “Black Butterflies and Deja Vu” here!

Let me know what you think of the new track! Are you excited for Lovely Little Lonely? Leave a comment!

Album of the Week!

This week I’ve decided to work on my list of 7,000+ artists I want to listen to and delved into Mayday Parade! I don’t know much about Mayday Parade; I’ve heard they’re good and heard multiple people talk about them, so I figured they must be worth a listen. (They totally are)

The first song I heard from them was “Miserable at Best” from A Lesson in Romantics off some playlist or another. I haven’t listened to all of their albums yet, I think there’s still an album and an EP I haven’t heard yet…

When I began listening to them I was set on Monsters in the Closet being this weeks album – but then I heard Anywhere but Here last night and . . . this weeks Album of the Week is Anywhere but Here!

Anywhere but Here is full of music that just sounds good! Not the type of good that a lot of songs are, but the type of good that makes you feel good! To me, it’s the type of music that you would want to blast and ugly scream to. (Which I’m planning on doing after I’ve got some of the lyrics memorized)

A couple of my favorite tracks are “Kids in Love” and . . . every single other track on this album!

I encourage everyone to listen to both Anywhere but Here and Monsters in the Closet. And after you do, tell me which you liked better and what your favorite tracks are in the comments! Also, if you have any Mayday Parade album/song suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments!

p.s. I’m sorry that all I’ve been posting are Album of the Weeks. I want to post more content but school got a bit hectic recently so I haven’t been able to do much more. I do want to continue posting at least once a week so, until I have more content, these albums are really all that will be posted. However I have been working on some playlists so hopefully those will be ready to be posted soon!

 

Album of the Week!

Blink 182 is a band you’ve most likely heard of in some way or another. Blink formed in the suburbs of San Diego, California and emerged into the post-Green Day mainstream explosion of pop-punk. They released a steady stream of hits, bolstered by humorous, tongue-in-cheek music videos.

The bands latest album, Californiareleased on July 1 of this year is this weeks Album of the Week!

I think this is a great, very fun album. Although there are serious tracks in the album – such as “Home is Such a Lonely Place” and “Left Alone” – there are also some pretty ridiculous tracks, like “Built this Pool” (of whom’s lyrics are: ‘I wanna see some naked dudes, that’s why I built this pool’ . . . that’s it. Those are the lyrics.)

Have you listened to California? If so, what are your favorite tracks? A couple that frequently get stuck in my head are “Bored to Death“, “She’s Out of Her Mind“, and “San Diego“.
