Late Night Music Adventures

As promised, this is something different than my normal post. This is for my music lovers out there. A little less than a week ago I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try some new music. I kept seeing tweets on Twitter mentioning I Fall Apart by Post Malone. Up until then I had listened to like one of his songs and hated it so I wasn’t too interested in checking him out again. That was until I actually stopped and listened to one of the various videos posted on Twitter. I instantly fell in LOVE with his voice. This act started a journey and this post is all about how I got from there to new Falling in Reverse songs.

To give you some background information, I am normally a person that likes anything and everything when it comes to music. I have everything from Adele to Hollywood undead, from Thomas Rhett to Lemonade Mouth. I’m not one to hate any type of music (except Opera but that’s another topic for another time) but I’m not usually one to go so diverse in one night either but that’s definitely gonna change after this night.

Like I said, it all started with I Fall Apart and then I ended up listening to the whole Stoney album by him. I highly recommend doing that if you haven’t already. He reminds me a lot of Blackbear which has been one of my favorites for a while now. I just recently started getting into rap/hip-hop like last year because before that I was purely a pop and rock type of girl. But ever since Blackbear I have slowly become addicted. Blackbear, Logic, Post Malone, Khalid, you name it and I have them in my playlist somewhere.

After this new discovery I ended up deciding to go to the new music list on Napster (which I also highly recommend, it’s better than spotify in my opinion) which contained Pink’s new single and Demi Lovato’s new album. I cried to both and couldn’t help but listen to everything. Seriously, if you haven’t heard Instructions, Games, or Hitchhiker by Demi yet, what are you doing with your life???

All of this lead me to the popular section on Napster where I made a huge realization. Up until this night I would have never in my entire life called me a country music lover. I still don’t but I definitely don’t hate it anymore either. What Ifs by Kane Brown is literally so beautiful. And like the entire Thomas Rett album is just phenomenal. I have no idea why I’ve been convinced that I hated all country except Carrie Underwood. I was ignorant but now I’ve seen the light and I will never go back.

To end my music adventure I decided to look up some old favorites: Hollywood Undead and Falling in Reverse. I have a very hard time explaining why I like these bands to people. There not what most people like because they’re “emo” or whatever you use for that type of music. These two bands happen to technically be hardcore rap but I also like bands like I See Stars and BMTH so not all of it is like that. Anyway, I ended up looking up HU first because they were my first love (Three Days Grace and Hollywood Undead were the ones that started my love for this genre) and they had NEW singles out. I was not expecting that and listened to all of them and fell in love all over again. Now, if you know anything about Hollywood Undead and Falling in Reverse you’ll know that they are kind of in a rival because they have really similar styles so I decided to check and see if they came out with anything new and sure enough they also had some new singles out and they were so amazing in my opinion.

Now, if you know me at all you know that when I find new music that I like, I love to scream it to the world. I’ll constantly be tweeting about it and tweeting song lyrics from them. I get so happy and my days are usually just all around better when I have new music to listen to. So I’ve decided to sit down and write about this today instead of whatever political events are happening because I just needed to share my love!
