So I've thought for a while that I wanted to do a 'What I've been listening to...' post as I haven't shared my recent favourite artists. albums and songs in a long time. Also because I'm obviously based in England and some of you that read this blog are from the US, Russia and lots of other countries so have different artists. So I would like to introduce you to some of my favourites.
My first artist is Taylor Swift. Her new album 'Red' came out last Monday. I absolutely love her and her music, she is my ultimate girl crush. Her simple elegance in clothes is outstanding and her country based music is fabulous. Me and my sister Madeleine both love her and were lucky to be together when it came out so we got a physical copy of the Deluxe Edition. This is her most recent music video called 'Begin Again.' This is definitely one of my favourites from the album but there are plenty more such as 22, I almost do, All too well, The Lucky One and Red. I would really encourage you to buy this album of 16 songs!
Another one of my favourite artists in Cody Simpson. I know I mention him quite a lot but his album 'Paradise' came out on October 2nd and I just love it. It has a very pop, beachy and chill feel to it which comes from his Australian upbringing. I have been recently disappointed by buying tickets for his UK concert in London but him and his manager cancelling it because Justin Bieber has asked him to support him some more on his 'Believe' tour! This is obviously such a good opportunity as Justin Bieber is, well just Justin! This is definitely one of my favourite's from my album called 'Be the One.'
A fairly new English band called 'Lawson' have released their debut album Chapman Square also on Monday. I love it! They have had three singles since May which have done so well in the charts. I love them as they have a feel about them which is like The Script and Scouting for Girls. They are still fairly new to the music industry after years of trying to make it; their debut album charts at number 4! They're album also has a chill feeling to it although is quite emotional as most of these songs are about Andy Brown's (the main singer and songwriter) Ex-girlfriend Molly King from the Saturdays and are quite deep about love! This is their first single 'When She Was Mine.'
My Friends Vicky and Chilli know I love Taylor Swift so introduced me too Colbie Calliat. She has a lovely tune and feel to her music. I listened to all of her songs one Saturday afternoon and fell in love with them! She isn't a very new artist but that doesn't mean her songs aren't great. My favourite is 'Bubbly.'
One of my next favourite artists is Rita Ora. She has an amazing sense of fashion which I just adore. Her album 'Ora' came out near the end of August and I love it! It has a great range of different music to similar songs to RIP her debut No.1 single and then some slower ones such a 'Hello, Hi goodbye.' I do also think a part of why I like her so much is because she's going out with Rob Kardashian! Hahaa, No I really do love her music, my favourite one would have to be 'Shine Ya Light' although there are many favourites so go and check out her album!
Although there are many other artist I would like to talk about, I'll stop there! I'm going to Bath for the next couple of days which I really excited for just because I've heard it's a really lovely city and has some great shops! I wonder is this time next year I will be writing about any of the people of Xfactor as my favourite artists, Who do you think has a chance to make it into the music industry?
