Here are the songs I listened to most in January. Find monthly playlists from me on Spotify
Crash – All Tvvins
Released as a single in 2017.
Favourite lyrics: ‘There’s no right or wrong. How can there be when it’s the side you were born on is the side you are for?’
Synthy, ethereal and emotive.
Wilson (Expensive Mistakes) – Fall Out Boy
Record – M A N I A.
Favourite lyrics: ‘I hope the roof flies off and I get blown out into space.
I always make such expensive mistakes.’
A throwback to emo Fall out boy; at times both soulful and melodramatic while still keeping the pop punk tone that FOB are known for.
Bear Claws – The Academic
Record – Tales From The Backseat
Favourite lyrics: ‘Show me all your flaws, show me your bear claws. Go rip your heart out tonight’.
Indie pop with a chorus that makes it perfect for live shows. Check out the Facebook Live Loop version of this!
Run – Foo Fighters
Record: Concrete and Gold
Favourite Lyrics: ‘In another perfect life, in another perfect light, we run.’
From a mellow opening to thrashing guitar & Grohl’s screaming vocals, this is a Foo’s classic.
Trees – Twenty One Pilots
Favourite Lyrics: ‘I want to know you, I want to see, I want to say hello.’
Synthy with yearning vocals to begin with before building to a frantic climax that always gets the crowd shouting along at live shows.
(Performance starts at 1:38)
