Music Monday: Music I've Been Loving #1.

Hey everyone, so I thought I'd do a post on what music I've been really getting into recently and becoming obsessed with. Some of the artists you'll probably know and some you may not know so it's my job to explain to you who they are and what songs I think you should check out.

So let's get into it:

George Ezra
  George Ezra is an English singer-songwriter and he's released two EPs Did You Hear The Rain? in 2013 and Cassy O' in 2014 before bringing out his debut studio album, Wanted On Voyage, mid-2014 which reached number one in the UK. 

Favourite songs: Listen To The Man (which has the wondeful Ian Mckellen in its video!) and Blind Man In Amsterdam.

Sam Smith
 
 
Sam Smith is an English singer and songwriter and he appeared on a number of hit singles before his own debut album like Disclosure's Latch and Naughty Boy's La La La. He released his incredible In The Lonely Hour album in 2014 and it had many major hits. He has since been nominated for SIX Grammy Awards.

Favourite songs: Restart, Stay With Me and I've Told You Now.

Royal Blood
 This rock band is composed of bassist/singer Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher and they only formed very recently in 2013. They caught my eye after putting on an incredible performance for the 2014 EMA's. They are yet to release a full album but they are set to be a supporting act for the Foo Fighters on their 2015 tour and they said they're to start writing their album while on tour, I can't wait!

Favourite song: Figure It Out.

Beyoncé
 Queen B doesn't need any introduction, everyone knows her and how amazing she is. I am obsessed with this single recently and can't stop playing it. It's very different to anything Beyoncé's ever done before but I love how pretty she looks with minimal, if any, make-up on and the simplicity of the video which was all filmed on an iPhone. Looks like a pyjama party with B would be so much fun!

Favourite song: 7/11

What are some of your favourite songs at the moment?
Are there any albums you're looking forward to listening to?

If you have any comments or recommendations for me, please let me know!

Thankyou for reading.
Laura.

  16. Beyonce's music videos are so creative and they're always heading in such an interesting direction with a story to tell. Also, I'm also into Royal Blood at the moment, their sound is so unique and yet reminds me (in a good way) of music I listened to back in around 2003 haha :)
