Sorry for the lack of news, it’s been a crazy month, and I’ll write about it sometime soon ! If you haven’t heard from reading my social medias or anywhere, I’m currently in the process of moving from one country to another, and it’s tiring, it’s adjusting to a whole new ensemble of things, but it’s sooooo worth it !
What’s been getting me through all the stress and all the tiredness, is music. And I’m about to give you some really good stress-relief music !
I’ve been meaning to write about Gaga for quite a bit now, wanting to review her album and all, but never got quite around to it. Finally, I’ve sat myself up with a cup of coffee this morning, got on Netflix, and noticed that Gaga’s new documentary was up.
It came out September 22nd and I had planned to watch it at some point, so it was all for the best ! I could watch it, and write about it, also talking about Joanne at the same time, as we come closer to the 1 year anniversary of the album.
I remember the first time I went online and found through youtube and the Rise Records channel a new band then, who had just been signed.
Curious of a band whose name is the capital of my birth country, I decided to check it, and on the first notes of the song ( St Patrick I remember it is), I immediately fell in love with them.
What attracted me was not only their sound, their lyrics, but also their aesthetic which weirdly makes me see life in black and white (both their albums have black and white covers) and a world of their own, mixed between Tim Burton movies, Edgar Allen Poe poetry and nowadays music.
And she’s coming for blood and ready to stop playing nice and actually own up to the reputation that people have built for her. Taylor will always be Taylor, but this time, she’s had enough of your bullshit and she’s ready to kick your ass if you don’t leave her alone (and I love dark Taylor ! *giggles like the first time I saw dark Willow in Buffy The Vampire Slayer*)
Sorry for the lack of news this month, it’s been quite crazy !
But I promise you, lots of new things in store music-wise, lots of excitement !
Also, know that there are lots to come, as I’ve decided it was maybe time to talk about things that matter to me, and not just music (although, a lot of what matters to me is connected or linked to music, so expect a bit of that too, still 😉 )
Hope you guys will still be there when everything unfolds !
In the meantime, here’s a cover song that I absolute am CRAZY of by yet another great band !
Here’s the Can’t Feel My Face cover for Punk Goes Pop 7 by The Amity Affliction ! Available on iTunes
FYI: this song is originally by The Weeknd, from his sophomore album Beauty Behind The Madness and is a song about one’s love for another. I’ve been so addicted to that song, it’s crazy. So when I say that this cover is getting me all pumped, it’s really an understatement ! Hope you enjoy it !
