Savage // Lights

Lights has been one of my favorite artists since high school & continues to prove herself incredibly unique with the upcoming release of her new album. Skin & Earth is slated for a release late next month, it is a concept album with a comic book companion. The releases so far off Skin & Earth for me have been hot & cold. However, due to it being a concept album – I’m not losing hope. I’m anticipating hearing how the songs will intertwine with one another. Much like when I listen to Pink Floyd – I cannot bring myself to listen to one or a few songs at a time, I need to listen to everything at once. The effect isn’t as beautiful. Bonus: if you’re a Twenty One Pilots fan, this track features Josh Dun on drums.

Woman // Kesha

2017 is continuing to prove itself as a year for great pop releases. Early last month, Kesha announced her newest single Praying, shortly followed by the album Rainbow. Rainbow is being described as the album Kesha always wanted to release – it fuses country, rock, & typical Kesha dance hits in complete symphony. If you are a fan of Kesha without auto-tune, give Rainbow a listen. Rainbow even contains far less auto-tune than Warrior. Woman has officially become my personal new girl power anthem, it is one of the stand out tracks on the album.

Hymn // Kesha

A bonus since I skipped out on last week (& because Rainbow is 🔥🔥). Yet another empowering track from Kesha, another go-to track for when I’m feeling less than myself. I know that I’m perfect / even though I’m fucked up / Hymn for the hymnless / don’t need no forgiveness.

Clairvoyant // The Story So Far

My old fave of the week is one of the Story So Far’s best-known songs, an acoustic dream featuring the famed lyrics don’t paint me black when I used to be golden.

songs of the week // july 7th, 2017

Hey everyone, I’m so excited to be starting a new series today! Music has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember & like everything else while in college, it totally fell off my radar. As a way of introducing myself to new music, I’m starting this series. It’s going to feature one or two new songs I’ve been liking over the past week & an old favorite.
