Music Monday: Music I've Been Loving #5.

Hey, everyone! So today, I have another post about the music I've been really into these past few weeks. Now, I haven't actually got many artists on here.. in fact there is just one band on here that I have become completely obsessed with. Like, I haven't listened to anyone else for the past three weeks. I will attach videos that I think you should check out and I hope you like my choices. Feel free to recommend me any other music!

Now, I don't know about you but I've seen this cover of Can't Help Falling In Love going around on Tumblr for a good couple of years and I loved listening to it like many others.
Finally, I decided to YouTube the cover and found it was Tyler Joseph from twenty one pilots singing it. Intrigued, I decided to go ahead and see what else this band sang and I was blown away. 

Twenty one pilots was originally a four piece band before becoming a twosome (Tyler Joseph - vocals, ukele, piano etc. and Josh Dun - drums). These guys are absolutely unbelievable and I am kicking myself for not having discovered them earlier. Their songs and lyrics may be triggering and affect alot of people emotionally because it does contain some dark stuff as Tyler has been through alot with depression, insecurities and suicidal thoughts. I thought listening to this stuff on repeat would really depress me but it hasn't, it's actually incredible. Having gone through emotional troubles of my own in the past, I really connected to the lyrics and songs and really felt Tyler's pain/emotion. He found words to describe things that I had felt in the past and did it better than I ever could. 

There aren't enough words to describe how talented Tyler is. He writes these songs, plays piano, ukulele and more while also being able sing AND rap. This music is incomparable to anything else. With emotional and depressing lyrics like theirs, you'd expect it to be all ballad-like or emo but it's really not. It is mixture of rap, pop, techno/dance, rock and screamo as well as piano ballads with just Tyler singing on his own. I have never heard anything like this before. With Josh's thumping drum beats, you forget sometimes what Tyler is actually talking about because it's covered your urge to dance to the incredible music.

I'll attach a few of their songs that I've really enjoyed and I think you will too!

Those are just a few songs I love although there are tons more but this post would be incredibly long if I posted all of them! I can't express how much I have come to love these two guys. I've listened to every song of theirs, watched nearly every interview and I have fallen completely in love with them. They are incredibly kind to their fans and are really not at all smug with their increasing fame status. 

Their music is not something you can just listen to once and decide whether you love it or not. You have to give each album a really good few listens and let me tell you, these guys are worth listening to. They're nothing like what's on the radio today and they're very unique. Don't be put off by the fact it may not be something you usually listen to. I didn't think it was something I'd like either but because I decided to give them a chance, I now love them. You could too. 

I'm now proud to say I'm part of their clique! |-/  

Have you heard of these guys? Do you like them?
Do you have any recommendations for me?
Thankyou for reading.

  3. My best friend is MASSIVELY obsessed with twenty one pilots and I have a brother who religiously covers their songs, so these are familiar names to me. I'm a pretty huge fan of twenty one pilots as well. What strikes me most about their music is the meaning, the relatebility and the empathy that spines their music, especially regarding darker subjects such as depression, suicide amongst existential crisis. Their albums are basically art and I'm so glad you've been loving them, Laura!
