April Soundtrack

Oh boy, so much wonderful new music has come out since my last playlist. It’s like a bunch of my favourite artists got together and decided I deserved a present, and I don’t take it for granted.

April has had me transitioning to more upbeat tracks, a bit of rock, indie pop and good sing-along tunes. I’ve been loving starting my mornings with a good lil dance to prep a good mood for the day. I’m going through a phase of both self-care and intense productivity, so relatable lyrics are great but I don’t want anything too slow or wallowing. I think this collection of songs will do nicely.

While you listen, here are some words about a few standout tracks…

 

“Lust for Life” by Lana Del Rey, featuring The Weeknd – I never thought a line as simple and seemingly shallow as “take off all of your clothes” would bring tears to my eyes, but this song is just so sonically beautiful and lyrically soothing that it’s hard to listen without getting emotional. Lana and Abel’s voices are heaven together; I’ve wished since “Prisoner” that they would do an entire album as a duo, but I’ll take what I can get.

Favourite Line – We’re the masters of our own fate // We’re the captains of our own souls

Feels Like – Dancing on the H of the Hollywood sign

“Hard Times” by Paramore – Paramore haven’t released music since 2013, and clearly there was a good reason for the wait; they’ve reinvented their sound once again and I absolutely love it. This song is relevant, quirky and fun, as is the music video. Hayley and the gang have adopted an 80s pop rock flair that suits them perfectly, and I’m excited to see how that’s manifested on their new album (whose release is hopefully not too far away).

Favourite Line – Hit me with lightning // Maybe I’ll come alive

Feels Like – Everyone fuckin’ gets it

“The Boys (Acoustic)” by Lisa Mitchell – I’ve never been a huge fan of Lisa Mitchell’s music, but this song, however, makes my heart hurt. It’s the sharpest painting of an Australian suburban summer I’ve ever encountered, coupled with a spare and soft melody that stings with its simplicity.

Favourite Line – The boys buy a case and we sit in the backyard // Our hair and our skin is all salty and starched // The air is soft and reminds me of ending days

Feels Like – Teen train trips to the beach, cruisers on the sand, avoiding the jellyfish

“Deleted” by Amy Shark – I’m writing this on the heels of Amy’s “Night Thinker” release, so I haven’t had a lot of time to listen or absorb the whole EP, but this track definitely stood out as my favourite off the bat. I’m over the moon to have more Amy Shark in my life.

Favourite Line – I was in a hurry and I never seem to get him alone

Feels Like – Two trains passing in the night, never stopping at the same time

 

“Low Blows” by Meg Mac – I think anyone who has had to learn how to stand up for themselves can relate to this song, and with Meg’s soulful pipes and funky vibes, it’s the perfect empowering tune to remind yourself that you’re actually a fuckin’ badass.

Favourite Line – Don’t wanna be anyone again

Feels Like – I deserve better

 

“Green Light” by Lorde – Apart from her collaboration with Disclosure, this is the only Lorde song I’ve ever really liked. I adore the sad disco drama that this song embodies. I’m not sure if this means I’m going to like this era of Lorde since I wasn’t a fan of “Liability” but hey, we’ll see what happens.

Favourite Line – Did it frighten you // How we kissed when we danced on the light-up floor?

Feels Like – Teardrops on the dancefloor

 

“Sign of the Times” by Harry Styles – Another first for me; I’ve never liked One Direction or Harry Styles, but I decided to give this one a go since everyone was raving about it. This is a good, proper rock ballad with a real and timely message, and I’m optimistic about his solo career if there’s more of this to come.

Favourite Line – You look pretty good down here // But you aint really good

Feels Like – The whole world is stuck in this feeling
