Let’s Talk: What was your favourite music from the 2010s?

After having a little time to myself after work, I decided to do a little insatiable digging and scouring into the past works and creations of what we saw in terms of music in the 2010s.

After an unwilling acceptance of enjoying chart music a little too much when I was younger, I thoroughly enjoyed the pump-it-loud electronica r’n’b music of Black Eyed Peas, bleary-eyed MIKA and eventually my evolution of indie music with Foster The People’s Pumped Up Kicks.

I always love venturing down a music wormhole of past pleasantries and gander into what my music tastes used to be like during my childhood.

And by God, how much has it changed. Now, I have no idea who enters the charts at one point during the week. It’s a world of unknown and now, a minimal disdain for all things popular music. Bleurgh.

What are your favourites of the 2010s?

Let’s Talk: What makes an artist SUCCESSFUL?

For your Sunday evening, here’s a deep dive into the talks of all things music.

In your humble opinion, what makes a music artist successful? Is it the sheer social media numbers and radio plays? Or is it something far more personal with their musicality and story as a songwriter? It seems to depend on whom you ask, but the varying degrees of success is often weighed up when discussing an artists’ music.

For me, I think it’s whatever makes the artist happy. Playing to a group of ten people in a small dimmed bar, to getting that perfect song out that shows you as the perfect songwriter, I think measures success.

Popularity and successive streams are certainly extras that come after for me. Now, that’s just my opinion to this one, what’s yours?

Artist Spotlight: Black Honey

Similar to that of Black Honey, this indie-grudge grunge quartet are as viscous in their bold music-beatings as they are as sweet in their intriguing delivery.

Tough acts of “Beaches”, “All My Pride”, “Corrine” and “I Like The Way You Die,” are what makes this Brighton collective so unique and wild in their coming-of-age industry story. Love, lust, hate and all-between.

Another band is rising into the limelight showcasing a boss bitch frontman and a no-nonsense attitude knowing exactly what they want.

Global Citizen Live: Did you Watch it?

Defend the planet. Defeat poverty.

After so many avid international music artists performing around the world – from New York’s Central Park to the Amazon River in Brazil – for 24 hours, Global Citizen was a magnificent music masterpiece to behold.

After managing to catch a glimpse of Coldplay’s performance -with the tempting cameo of Billie Eilish gracing the stage – before my eyes finally drifted off after 2 in the morning, it got me really inspired to delve into new artists I wouldn’t have heard of before if it weren’t for the event.

Christina and the Queens, Burna Boy and Lang Lang were to name a few.

After such a mass worldwide coverage, did you manage to catch a glimpse of a performance, too?

If so, what was your favourite?

Song of the Day: The Lumineers – “BRIGHTSIDE”

The sorrowful beauty of indie folk lovers of The Lumineers are back in a new ambient space with their single, BRIGHTSIDE.

From their return from 2019’s III album, The Lumineers are back and heralded with their vibrancy once more. This comes off the back of their fourth album set to release next January in 2022 – and is sparkling excitement in the folklore of folk music.

Ever since their eclectic Hey Ho from their debut, they have gained emphatic status and recognition for the music efforts. Eclipsed by their 2016 album, Cleopatra, BRIGHTSIDE is the coming of age and their fourth instalment in the saga.
