t’s been a while since I’ve written one of these. But no matter how busy life gets, there is always time for music. I’m going to be sharing with the absolute bangers that have followed me through this hectic summer!
Chasing Highs – ALMA
I’m just going to say it – I loved this song before everyone else did! Before this song became a radio summer staple, I already knew all the words! This song just makes me want to move with its pulsating beats that runs throughout - I often bust out the robot to the chorus! Another thing that got me hooked to this song is the vocal distortions throughout and oh boy I love a good vocal distortion! This is a great love song with a fab beat that will get into your head and make you dance.
Champion – Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy released their second single from their upcoming album this summer and my gosh what a banger it is! It the song’s lyrics that has made a summer tune for me. I have had an extremely busy summer with many moments of doubt and feeling like I’m getting nowhere and I that should just give up (who doesn’t feel like that from time to time). But every time I felt like that, I would stick this bop on and it would bring me back up. The song is about feeling like that but also knowing that you are a champion and that you can do anything. Thank you Fall Out Boy!
Strip That Down – Liam Payne
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no directioner – but I can’t get over how much of a bop this song is! That’s it really. I haven’t got a lot to say about this one except for the fact that I haven’t stopped listening to it. Oh, and I love that shady line in the bridge – “Used to be in 1D now I’m free” – what a BURN!
No Promises – Cheat Codes ft. Demi Lovato
I didn’t like this song at first but it’s been a grower. I adore how this song flows from upbeat and dance-y to slow and meaningful. I also love how the two voices come together and harmonise so well. I just love it. Again, that’s all I have to say.
There For You – Martin Garrix ft. Troye Sivan
This one is more of a chilled song but it still has a great beat that got me hooked. I love the lyrics on this one as well. It is a sweet love song about being there for someone you love and showing them how much you love them. And again, this song is full of vocal distortions which I adore! This song builds throughout with layers of vocals and electronic synths which to me builds the meaning of the lyrics.
