Soud and I have known each other since primary school. She has always been the music. She was the girl singing The Corrs’ hit ‘Runaway’ at year six assembly and performed at our year 12 graduation. I’ve always gone to her for the latest music tips and she has been kind enough to share with all you as well. Keep reading for Soud’s killer queens of music for 2015…
If you’re anything like me, I’m constantly craving new music discoveries.
A wise woman once said ‘people haven’t always been there for me, but music always has’. And I couldn’t agree more.
There’s a soundtrack for every different mood, experience or phase of our lives. Think of how many times you hear a particular song or album that so distinctively takes you back to that place, that one time, that crush, that kiss, that break up…yep, I’m sure we can all relate to that. Am I right?
We all have music to console us, lift us up, help us process emotion, and of course, help us remember. And thank goodness for that.
That quote was made by none other then the killer queen of pop, Taylor Swift, by the way. But what about the upcoming killer queens of music we might not of heard yet?
Ladies, I’ma help you out! Go ahead, make a cuppa or pour a glass ;), sit back, listen and enjoy. See if any of these incredibly talented women I’ve discovered this year can contribute to your 2015 soundtrack too…
For your more emotional and deeper moods, Banks is hauntingly refreshing. You’ll be mesmerised by her tracks ‘Goddess’ and ‘Brain’. I’m particularly obsessed with her lyric in the track ‘Goddess’: ‘You shoulda crowned her, cause she’s a goddess, You never got this’. #nailedit
Lucy is your sweet English cup of tea. Cute, boppy, acoustic Brit pop that every girl who’s been in-love or heartbroken can relate to. You’ll find you’ll be looping the album whilst cleaning or driving around town in no time. ‘Our eyes’ or ‘Red Face’ are the tracks to check out.
Say Lou Lou
Twin sisters who grew up in Australia and Sweden have become pretty big in the ‘dream pop’ genre. Their songs are airy, dreamy, dramatic and so damn catchy! Check out ‘Better in the dark’ and my all time fave, ‘Maybe you’.
I just can’t get over the tone of her voice. It literally sends shivers down my spine. For your evening chills and winding down after a long day, give ‘Hollow Drum’ or ‘Still Life’ a good listen.
This woman has pipes! And has a killer of a tune ‘Nobody love’ that you can’t help but wanna grab your girlfriends and cut a rug to! #seriously. She’s also had more then 100 million views online. Phoar!
We’re so interested to hear what you think and if you have any recommendations to share. Which other ladies are killing it in music this year? Who are the ones you can’t help but put on repeat? Remember, sharing is caring! 😉
Until next time, enjoy and be kind to yourself and others.
