Music Roundup - 8th May 2022
Happy Mother's Day to all those mums out there! You're all amazing. Hope you're having a great day with lots of love. Here's some new music to elevate your day!
Afinity, Amidy & Egzod - High On Life
Elephante & Sabai - Love Again
"Love Again is a song about recovering from a broken heart and all the trauma that comes with it. It's about climbing out of that darkness, and putting yourself out there despite the fear of getting hurt again."
YUNGBLUD (with WILLOW) - Memories
"There's something freeing about turning painful memories from your past into lessons for your future - I want people to scream this song out and it be cathartic. It's about coming together and shedding pain, turning it into positive energy and sharing the burden with each other."
Burn The Louvre - Nice Guy
Vocalist Jordan Speare wrote this track after a really bad first date which got progressively worse as the night went on.
"I came up with most of the lyrics and the melody on the drive home. I finished the rest of the song shortly afterwards. A great example of turning a negative into a positive. I can't even remember that girl's name now, it was so long ago, but I'd like to thank her for inspiring this song. In all honesty though, I was listening to a lot of Tokyo Police Club at the time and I think the goal was just to put an ironic twist on the 'nice guys finish last' narrative. I hope people appreciate the tongue-in-cheek lyrics."
Blake Rose - Demon
Northlane - Clockwork
Frontman Marcus Bridge writes: "Clockwork reflects the pressures and anxieties I felt as we jumped back into writing after an uninspiring year. I always want to push myself creatively but with life on hold and with no end in sight, I felt empty and lonely, running out of time as our self-imposed deadline approached."
Personally, I like to take the line: "I'm running out of time" to mean that life is slipping by so fast and I'm running out of time to do the things I want to do before I go. Maybe it'll motivate me or you to stop procrastinating and get those projects on the backburner started :)
Leikeli47 - Chitty Bang
