I may have only been listening to twenty one pilots for a couple of months, but I totally in love with their music. Their lyrics are just so truthful and meaningful. They do rap a bit in their songs and before I listened to their music I hated rap, but I now have a new appreciation for it, which I suppose can only be a good thing.
Aside from twenty one pilots, there are PLENTY of other bands I like.
Here is a handy list in case you were wondering:
– Circa Waves
– Walk the Moon
– B∆STILLE (I can do the triangle A thingys!!)
– Milky Chance
– Kaiser Chiefs
– Vance Joy
– The Kooks
– The 1975
– James Bay
See? There are A LOT.
I can’t really define my taste in music as ONE specific genre. I mean, it would probably end up being called ‘alternative-indie-folk-pop-electronica-rock’.
The one thing I can say about my music taste though, is that I feel really passionately about the bands and artists I like and absolutely love listening to every single one of them.
I also love discovering new music so if anyone has any artists they recommend me listening to, be sure to let me know!
You might be wondering what the point to this post was. Well, I’m getting to that.
Yesterday was a big day for two of my favourite bands – the 1975 and Walk the Moon. They both released new albums:
– I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it, The 1975
– You Are Not Alone: live at The Greek, Walk the Moon.
I got so emotional yesterday because I just love their music so much and it makes me so proud when they release new material. I was also really sad at the use time though because last week Walk the Moon played a concert near me and next week twenty one pilots are playing near me but I was unable to get tickets for either.:'(:'(
It didn’t really help the fact that Walk the Moon’s new album is a LIVE album so when I was streaming it on Spotify yesterday all I could think of was what it would have been like if I had got tickets for their concert.
However as some of you may know, I did go to see The 1975 back in November which was absolutely incredible so I have ticked off one if my ‘bands to see in concert’ but I would definitely see them again.
I posted a video of the concert on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/X3mwzMhjHK0
and it made me SO emotional watching through all the clips when I made it, so please take a look!
Here are some pictures I took there too:
It was one of the best nights of my life and I really want to thank one of my best friends who let me go with her as she got tickets for her birthday, it means a lot and I love her so much.
Sticking on the theme of The 1975, here’s a bit of artwork inspired by their song ‘The City’ that I made as a present for said friends birthday.
I really didn’t want to give it away because I loved making it soooooo much.
I have done some other artwork inspired by other bands and artists I like too so here’s a gallery of all of them plus all of their albums (including my signed Dream Your Life Away album by Vance Joy):
There are still so many albums I need to get round to buying though for example:
– Talking Is Hard– Walk the Moon.
– Employment– Kaiser Cheifs.
– The 1975– The 1975.
– Listen– The Kooks.
– You Are Not Alone– Walk the Moon.
– Young Chasers– Circa Waves .
– Blurryface– twenty one pilots.
So, that’s my taste in music, what’s yours?
