Well, hello there, dear friends! It’s been a while since we last spoke. A month to be exact, which means that it’s time for a new music roundup. I am so excited to tell you about my favourites from the month of February! There were so many I actually had a hard time deciding what to talk about in this article. That is why this Playlist doesn’t have a “new music videos” section, so I can make space for more songs. But enough with this intro! Enjoy The February Playlist and I hope you’ll find your new favourite from this selection of songs.
Muse – ‘Thought Contagion’
I shall begin the Playlist with the brand new track from the rock band Muse, ‘Thought Contagion”. I loved it from the first listen! It’s energetic, provocative, a bit mysterious – a good combination if you ask me. If you’re a fan of the band, don’t get too excited at the sight of a new song from them, because they officially announced that they won’t be releasing a new album anytime soon. They’ll stick to releasing a single here and there.
grandson – ‘Overdose’
The next song on the list is ‘Overdose’ from one of my favourite musicians, grandson. I know I said it a couple of times in the previous Playlists, but grandson never ceases to impress me whenever he releases a new track. Give a listen to ‘Overdose’ if you like alternative rock music!
5 Seconds of Summer – ‘Want You Back’
Ok, who invited a boy band to this party?… It was me, I admit! As much as I’m aware that a lot of people dismiss boy bands (and I’m using “boy bands” to refer to any pop group consisting of very attractive young men who sing trashy love songs and whose fanbase is mainly represented by 14 year-olds who probably write fanfics in their free time), I wanted to include 5SOS’ ‘Want You Back’, because I think it’s very fun song. Give it a listen and, who knows, maybe you’ll like it.
Heather Brave – ‘Feel You Watching’
Heather Brave is a new promising artist in the music industry who released at the beginning of this month her second track following her 2017 debut single ‘Like A Wave’. ‘Feel You Watching’ is a poppy song that will definitely make you want to get up and dance.
Sean Paul & David Guetta ft. Becky G – ‘Mad Love’
Another song that has been on repeat ever since it came out is ‘Mad Love’ from Sean Paul, David Guetta and Becky G. ‘Mad Love’ is definitely a party song. And I mean a song that should come on when the party is in full swing. Fun fact time! Guetta said in an interview that he and Sean Paul have been working on this track for two years. They must’ve been really happy when they finally released it.
Marshmello & Anne-Marie – ‘FRIENDS’
The final song for this month’s Playlist is ‘FRIENDS’ from the American EDM producer and DJ Marshmello and the UK singer-songwriter Anne-Marie. Just like the previous song, I think ‘FRIENDS’ is also a party song. It’s your typical pop-dance song dedicated to all the “friendzoners” and “friendzoned” people out there.
Black Panther: The Album
Moving on to the albums section. The first on the list is Black Panther: The Album, which I think is just an amazing hip-hop/rap album. There are loads of big names featured on this album – The Weekend, Kendrick Lamar, Future, Travis Scott, Khalid, SZA and many more. My favourites from the album are ‘King’s Dead’ and ‘Pray For Me’, but I think all 14 tracks are great. Give it a listen if you haven’t already.
The Low Anthem – The Salt Doll Went to Measure the Depth of Sea
If you’re looking for something relaxing to listen to, I recommend the new album from The Low Anthem, The Salt Doll Went to Measure the Depth of Sea. Listening to this album was a very soothing and peaceful experience with the calming vocal harmonies and the mellow sounds flowing through the album.
AWOLNATION – Here Come the Runts
For the final album of this Playlist, I chose the new one from the alternative rock band AWOLNATION. I think the album has such a nice vibe to it, with most of the songs being upbeat and fun. I enjoy it every single time I listen to it.
