Fan Art Fridays: The Neighbourhood

The Neighbourhood fan art

The Neighbourhood put out a new song this week called “Scary Love”!

“Scary Love” is part of the band’s upcoming EP To Imagine. It features some pretty high pitched synths, making it sound as scary as the title suggests. When I first heard it today, Jesse Rutherford’s vocals kind of scared me when he sang the opening line “Move to the city with me” in a screeching yet beautiful falsetto.

I’m used to the somber R&B feel of their music but I could definitely get used to a few hair-raising synths 😉

In honor of the release of “Scary Love”, I decided to scour the internet for some fan art of The Neighbourhood. I found this really fun cartoon of the band on Pinterest. It’s not signed at the bottom so I have no idea who created it.

I find it very interesting how the artist decided to give the band members a clown blush look on their cheeks, since The Neighbourhood seems like a serious bunch of guys. Gotta love juxtapositions!

September Favorites: Maye Musk & “Underdog” by BANKS

September 2017 was pretty groovy.

Besides the fact that NYC weather refuses to fully transition to fall, September was pretty good in terms of pop culture and entertainment. The summer ended with a splash of great music, which I can never complain about. Also, the fall TV premieres did not disappoint.

Let’s get to my September 2017 favorites!

Spring 2013 Playlist

Image

Spring is finally here! Time for some spring cleaning, and what better thing to do while cleaning? Blast some music! Here are 10 songs you can clean-up, or embellish, your playlist with, just in time for spring:

1. Hummingbird Heartbeat, Katy Perry: What’s spring without the birds? Katy Perry gives us the birds, the bees, and a little bit of romance in this track from her album Teenage Dream. It’ll make you feel rejuvenated, I assure you!

2. Climbing Walls, Strange Talk: This Australian band will get you in the swing of spring with this danceable tune. The music video is amazing as well. I urge you to check it out. The bright colors and energetic dancers are sure to get you in the mood for the good weather!

3. Birds, Emiliana Torrini: I heard this song for the first time in the commercial for Azzaro Chrome. Her voice is amazing! She’ll capture you with the first line “Let’s stay awake/ And listen to the dark”. Perfect for those spring nights when you can’t seem to fall asleep.

4. The Suburbs, Mr. Little Jeans: This song is originally by Arcade Fire, but Mr. Little Jean’s version of it is so much better for it’s spring-like, fluttering vibe. The lyrics are a bit dark, though, if you’re into that kind of thing.

5. Maldita Primavera, Yuridia: This Hispanic song is about falling in love in the spring, with a twist. It happens every spring, making it a “Damned Spring”, as the title would translate to in English.

6. Sweater Weather, The Neighbourhood: Sweater weather indeed! This song is a bit sensual, adding to the coziness of spring weather.

7. Big Jet Plane, Angus and Julia Stone: This song by Australian sibling duo Angus and Julia Stone will get you in the mood for some long car rides with the top down, wind in your hair and all.

8. Burn, Madi Diaz: I heard this song in the Pretty Little Liars episode “Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Inferno”. This heartfelt ballad is full of longing and passion. Madi’s voice is just perfect.

9. All Eyes on You, St. Lucia: This song hit my ear for the first time when I saw the Victoria’s Secret commercial it was featured in. The beat of this song is an amazing combination of sweet guitar chords and subtle drums.

10. Walking on a Dream, Empire of the Sun: Saving the best for last, this song is just amazing beyond words. If you have a convertible, please blast this song with the top down as you cruise down the road. It’ll change your life, I swear!
