Favourites on ‘Louder’:
- 'Cannonball' - too uplifting and inspiring to not be loved.
- 'Burn With You' - it's kind of a dark love song but it's nice to know someone will go to Hell with you.
- 'Battlefield' - minimal and emotional and yes.
- 'You're Mine' - ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE! Production and vocals are on point.
- 'Empty Handed' - Sounds like beautiful pop-rock reminiscent of early Coldplay or The Script.
I guess Coldplay were like “We’re actually THE best band in the world right now… Let’s do something new for us and see if we’re good at it.” And they totally are haha
I absolutely love their new song and songs like “Up In Flames” on ‘Mylo Xyloto’ totally blew me away but it was a bit of a disappointing album for me because the sound was too electronic when I’d been so used to their sort of…organic music? (I’m not trying to sound pretentious I swear). It’s still a good album but man I think I’ve realised I like it more when bands keep to their version of basics.
I’m kind of wishing bands would stop thinking that adding electronic elements to their music is a “musical evolution” or “progression”. Seriously why is this a thing?
[Looking at you Coldplay and The Fray]
"beatin up the pussy haha jk but for real i am"
Lea Michele’s album is giving me some major life right now.
And on another note. The cute guy who works at Dymocks was making eye contact with me in the queue and he served me and I was so nervous and fluttery and couldn’t find my Dymocks Booklover card and he was like: “Do you want the book in a paper or plastic bag?” And I was all: “OH MY GOD HE ASKED ME WHAT TYPE OF BAG I WANT!” in my head for some reason like that’s a big deal and I was just like - retrospectively a bit high-pitched - “It doesn’t matter. Whichever one.” with loud hand gestures. Jesus can I keep my swooning inside my mind please!?!
It would be lovely to not already be behind on uni work when it’s only week two.
I can’t believe it.
I am majorly disappointed in myself.
Goddamn it Jordon. Show some work ethic and become the studious student you’ve always wanted to be.
That sentence was a roller coaster.
