TROYE SIVAN’S BLOOM ALBUM REVIEW

Troye Sivan came out with a new album – “Bloom”, and it’s breathtaking! The album includes songs that were previously released as singles, such as: My! My! My!, The Good Side and Dance To This feat. Ariana Grande. Troye stuck to his individual style and created magic, you can definitely tell that he’s consistently working on bettering his art and not losing himself in the process. All of the songs have meaningful lyrics, supposedly inspired by his own life, and that’s what makes them so beautiful. Bloom… The only song that has its own music video (for now) and the song that gave the whole album its name. We have already included Bloom in our May Inspiration post and here’s what we said – “(through) Bloom we can finally experience him in his truest, authentic and unapologetic essence, as all of the stereotypical expectations and barriers are erased.” This is still true; the music video to this song completely breaks down every single stereotype people have consciously or unconsciously labelled Sivan by. “Bloom” – the …

CURRENTS – TAME IMPALA

I really enjoyed writing the review of Costello’s and Pink Floyd’s album last time, so I thought I could continue it but this time find a CURRENT album, to “relate to the teens”. Knowing me, and my random and messy, music taste I will probably post more reviews of older albums from the 60s – 90s but I will sprinkle in some albums of my time too. Even though Currents by Tame Impala was released in 2015, it still wins the people’s hearts now with it’s distinguishable, unique sounds. With over 3 million monthly listeners on Spotify, the Australian psychedelic band, just keeps growing bigger and bigger, creating more music that is influenced by some 60s subcultures. I hope Tame Impala will becomes one of those bands, that future generations will be jealous of us because we actually grew up listening to their songs. The Currents album was made to be listened to at gatherings, festivals and raves. It was created for people feel like they have altered their state of conciousness, sober. The band even achieves this through the …

MY AIM IS TRUE – ELVIS COSTELLO

The name always swayed around invisibly like an elephant in the room. It was always there. It was always a part of the rock n’ roll history, and a part of people’s lives and hearts. However, until recently, I have never paid close attention to this legendary singer, song-writer and record producer – Elvis Costello, but I wish I did. His astounding career was born during the peak decade of rock and punk – the 70s. The whole atmosphere of London at that time can definitely be heard and felt in the melodies as well as some notes and rhythms that remind us of the 60s. The ‘My Aim Is True’ album is made up of 13 individually unique and intelligent songs. Costello explores his sensitive side in most of those songs, he doesn’t hesitate to bend the rules of typical punks of the day, instead of painting an image of himself as not giving a fuck, he wrote songs and poured his thoughts and feelings into the lyrics and rhythms. He took a depressing topic …
