The Album Edit #1


Happy Monday, or as happy as it can be for a Monday morning. I'm coming up to a super busy fortnight with the last weeks on uni and my deadlines fast approaching. It means stacking up a load of studio hours over the coming days and one of the best things to help me through is music, and loads of coffee. I've been listening to a ton of new albums recently (read: they're new for me anyways) so I thought I'd make an edit of my favourites at the moment, alternatively I made a little playlist *here* of my fave songs from each album!

Blurryface - Twenty One Pilots
I was a little late catching onto this band but after seeing their EMAs performance I decided to check 'em out, they're probably more for a particular taste in music but they blew up in the underground pop scene a while ago. With influences from a load of different genres, including a little reggae, and raw, honest lyrics I've found myself a little obsessed. Blurryface is stuck on repeat.

Jamie Lawson (Self-titled)
I'm sure you've all heard of this guy after I wasn't expecting that was so popular and if you love the song, check out the album, it doesn't disappoint. With acoustic melodies and that similar optimism and romance as Ed Sheeran, this album is great for chilling out and some easy listening on a long afternoon.

Sounds Good Feels Good - 5 Seconds of Summer
Still talking about this album, not stopping anytime soon. This album is so much more grown up than their debut and the music, the sound itself, is more self aware and realised. I will not stop talking about this album until every single one of you has listened to it. It's my favourite, always.

Badlands - Halsey
You might have recently started hearing about Halsey cause of her collab with Bieber. Well her album is arguably my album of the year, it's aggressive, straight talking and feels more like a story of youth than an album. Plus, damn girl can out on a show, she's one to watch.

Grand Romantic - Nate Ruess
I supposed you'd call him 'indie rock' or something, I just know him as the lead singer of Fun. and his solo album has a really similar sound, if feels like he's pouring his heart out all over the tracks and I love it.

Handwritten - Shawn Mendes
I still love this album, not gonna lie I've been listening to it for months now and yeah, still not over it. It has all the puppy-love elements you'd expect from a 17 year old and his guitar but in a more playful, not-taking-himself-so-serious way. Plus it feels intimate, like you're the only one he's singing to and I'm a sucker for that.

I've made a little playlist here as well, what are you guys listening too at the moment to get you through the last few weeks of term?
