MUSIC: today is the best day.

TODAY, my dear friends, is the BEST DAY for music.

PARAMORE, my all time favourite band, have finally released their new album After Laughter and I am OBSESSED.  Very 80s pop-y, perfect for angry car dancing/singing, and Hayley’s voice just keeps getting better and better.  PLEASE listen to it, you need this in your life.  I’ve been listening to it all day, and especially find myself going back to Grudges, Rose-Colored Boy, and Caught In The Middle.  JAMS.

And then as if that weren’t enough – Harry Styles???  What is he doing.  Why is he so incredible.

His solo debut (imaginatively named Harry Styles), is full of various vintage rock vibes,

me too, Harry.

hipster swag, and… I think I heard a mandolin?  Just incredible.  PLUS maybe I’m a little biased but I love the album cover.  Not only do I love topless Harry Styles, but I too love to lie in massive pools of rose coloured water, wearing expensive necklaces and listening to classic rock on vinyl (which is what I imagine was happening when he took the photos that became the album artwork).

In between rocking the new paramore album I’ve been cranking up Carolina, Meet Me In The Hallway, and Woman.

Have you been jamming as hard as I have today?  Tell me your favourite tunes!

I’m currently sitting in the airport in Victoria, waiting to board my flight home.  I’m nervous – I have a connection to make and less than five minutes between my first flight landing and my second flight boarding – but cross your fingers for me.  I don’t know what happens if you miss a flight and I truly do not want to find out.

cheers to the weekend!

MUSIC: there’s a new all time low song and I am LIVING!!

GUYS it has been a long long long time coming, but today a new All Time Low song came out and I am LIVING for it!!!  yes yes yes YESSS the boys are back.

I’m struggling to say anything remotely intelligent about this because right now my brain is mostly just like “!!!!!!!”.  I really like the direction they’re going though, the song is different but still distinctly All Time Low – the lyrics are, as always, 100% on point, and the video is full of spooky lighting, blank stares, and Alex driving a vintage mustang (I fear that I am not selling it very well but I promise it’s sick).

ALSO, “young renegades”.  New album name????

I was always kind of obsessed with the word “renegade”, ever since Paramore did the singles club and put out their song renegade.  It’s the most basic and predictable pop-punk theme but it’s just so relatable (especially for my little Sagittarius heart) that it gets me every time.

Speaking of Paramore!  All Time Low also announced that they’ve been signed to Fuelled By Ramen for the last year and kept it a secret (rude).  But seriously, fbr has basically all the biggest bands in “the scene” – Paramore, Panic! At The Disco, Twenty One Pilots… Fall Out Boy at one point, yes? – and now All Time Low is officially on the roster.  Exciting!

ANYWAY, sorry for this excessively rambly and excited post – it’s not even a monday!  But I have had a lot of coffee, and there is new music from one of my favourite bands in this whole entire universe, so it’s a good day for me.  AND next week is reading week.

Life! Is! Good!

On that note, I’m off to campus to write a midterm.  I have a good feeling about it, so please send me all of your luck and good vibes.  If you haven’t heard the new song/seen the new video, check it out here and let me know what you think!!
