I know it’s not Thursday, but I’m having a serious throwback moment.
It all started on Saturday, when my roommates and I somehow went from listening to 500 Miles (someone was convinced it was the ultimate St. Patrick’s day anthem), to the Backstreet Boys, to… Hot Chelle Rae.
DO YOU REMEMBER HOT CHELLE RAE? Honestly, iconic. It turns out they only have two good songs, both of which you probably heard on the radio back in the day, but if you’re looking to revisit your scene hair days then those two songs are enough. Tonight, Tonight is the classic, but personally I prefer I Like It Like That.
If you’re interested in something a little less 2011 Hot Topic, might I remind you that The Wombats released a new album recently? I am reminding because I also forgot, and am just giving it a listen right now — it is a masterpiece. Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life is the painfully relatable name, and it is full of all the usual sassy lyrics and pop/rock sensibility of any and all their previous recordings. It’s a little less electronic than 2015’s Glitterbug, leaning more toward an indie rock vibe; definitely full of songs that will be bangers live.
what are you listening to lately — is it a throwback ting, or are you always about the new new? Do you like how I just casually threw in some trendy toronto slang that I have never used in my life? All important questions, so please get back to me asap.
