Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening!

   Once again, it’s not Leanne, I’m Kirsty.  Hey.

   So, Leanne asked me to write something quick about musical stuff for her blog (this brings me a lot of anxiety as I can honestly say I am the least musically talented person you will ever encounter. Even with listening. I float through genres not sure what’s going on. Terrible.) And it took me agesssssss to decide what to write, so I went with my favourite song at the moment: Miniskirt by BRAIDS. Then I though hey, they’re far too good to write about just one song…

   So that brings me onto their 2015 album – Deep in the Iris, and bloody hell is it good. 
There isn’t a single song on it that I dislike in ANY way. The whole album is full of meaningful, stick-in-your-head-for-days lyrics that I cannot get enough of and TONNES of catchy beats I can’t help but shimmy along to. The lyrics are poetry and I can’t make this post without mentioning some favourites:
    ‘Make believe I am in touch with myself, do the kind of things I watched from someone else’ – Sore Eyes, 
    ‘We experience the love we think we deserve, and I guess I thought I didn’t need much from this world, so I left you’ – Taste, 
    ‘And everything he touches is for him, my mother soul he devours with a grin’ – Miniskirt. 
   Not only are the lyrics meaningful and really touch home at some points, but her voice is like an angel, I could listen to her sing/speak all day. Having mentioned some lyrics of songs already I feel I need to add a video for more than just one song… So here is the FULL ALBUM on YouTube! (Please if you like it buy it afterwards!) 

   Thanks for reading my little attempt! Hopefully I’ll be back soon!

BRAIDS – Deep in the Iris:


   Hey guys! No this is not Leanne, my name is Melissa and I have taken over for one post (and maybe some more in the future if this doesn’t go terribly). 

   Ok then let’s get into this. Around 2 weeks ago Fightstar released their new single ‘Animal’ after being away for what seems like forever. And oh my god I’m so glad they’re back! Just from listening to one song from the upcoming album, ‘Behind the Devil’s Back’, I can tell that they have changed their sound a little bit and have gone a little bit heavier, especially with the vocals. The song starts with some heavy drum beats and then Charlie just gets straight into it with his screamy vocals. What a way to start a song and a new album! Getting straight to the point that they have changed a tiny bit, but I love it! As the song goes on the vocals get softer and you just want to sing along to “Free me now, because I’m an animal”. I can see myself and Leanne driving around, blasting this in my car with the windows down and getting really into it. The whole song is amazing, vocals, lyrics, guitars, you get it – everything! This will definitely be one of those songs that just pops into your head and you can’t get it out.
   I really can’t wait until the album comes out on October 16th and I will definitely grab myself a copy and have it on repeat! Go give ‘Animal’ a listen on Youtube and decide for yourself.
