#NewMusicTuesday: One Republic

Art, Videos

Yes…I know I have not written a new music Tuesday post in a while. However, I have a treat for you today and it is One Republic’s “Born.” This song is one of my favorites on their new album, “Oh My My.” It is beautifully written and it is simply a love song to the city. The city is filled with possibilities finding love, family and new life. I can personally relate to this song because when I moved to NYC for school I felt the same way. Since this is my last year of college, this song sums up my experience and future in this city. However, I understand I was not born here, I believe me finding my own roots is humbling.

For all the new New Yorkers, listen to the song here:

 

Enjoy!

#NewMusicTuesday: #Thirdstory

Art, Videos

 

The concert series my roommate, Amani and I have been to three concerts for the past three weeks has finally ended. The last show we saw was Thursday, September 29 at the Highline Ballroom.

Literally, I thought Amani was joking I was not prepared seeing Thirdstory. Ha…she was right. The whole time I was speechless and I could not believe how unreal they are. Their vocals were perfect and they even sounded better live.

They had done many of their covers and a few original songs. It was a blessing to see their last show of their tour. PEOPLE, GO SEE THEM LIVE AND LISTEN TO THEM NOW. ASAP.

Hopefully, Thirdstory’s new album will come out soon…time will tell.

Here is a favorite song of mine from their “Searching EP” and it is called, “G Train.” It is witty, expressing their hardships not getting the girl they want to bed and end up taking the slowest train back home — which is the G train.

 

Enjoy!

#NewMusicTuesday: Stromae

Art, Videos

Rap is an universal genre of music and one Renaissance man has changed French rap. His name is Stromae and he is an overall artist. There is a deep meaning to each of his songs that discuss the real issues people have in today’s society. Stromae takes his artwork further and uses his music videos that cleverly connect with his powerful lyrics. The song, “Carmen” is profound and explains how consumerism has taken over society. Also, he mentions how it is ironic to see how people are only obsessed getting followers on Twitter by feeding the Twitter bird. Sadly, everyone dies and are not remembered. The cycle never ends and the Twitter bird finds its next victim.

He is poet and recently he posted his full concert, Racine Carrée Live on YouTube. His music speaks for itself and the use of special effects is captivating. Enjoy the live concert!

#NewMusicTuesday: Catey Shaw

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone is having a good day so far and here is a little pick-me-up song for the day! The song is called, “Human Contact” by Catey Shaw and the music video has several beauty inspiration ideas. The two-toned winged eyeliner is my favourite look and her outfit is simple and sleek. The makeup and outfit pair well together for any occasion!

Enjoy the song!

THE KOOKS

Okay, as you can tell I adore the 1960s era and one of my most favourite bands of all time is The Kooks. I discovered this band when I was watching MTV one day and I was hooked. The Kooks are phenomenal and I highly recommend to listen to all of their albums. Their newest album, “Listen” is catchy, danceable and chic. One of my favourite songs from the album is, “Westside” because it embodiments the 1960s era. Don’t forget that this Cali girl will always represent the West Coast in NYC! Shout out to The Kooks!
