New Old Music

One day, when I should have been studying, my friend introduced to a game that would eventually lead me to having two versions of the same application on my phone... I curse & thank him at the same time. Ever since the game provided free music, I have been introduced to some new songs. This is one of them.

Coleman & Chris - Outta My Head

The game is called Tap Tap Revenge, and on the Tour version, a new song is given every time you play the Tour game. That is 3 songs per tour, or 5 depending how well you play. So when I got to play this song, I felt satisfied like a void has been filled. It might be the fact it sounds almost 90s/early 2000s,  or that it's one of those songs you enjoy for a limited time - and that's perfectly okay. I think it was released at the wrong time, but it's nice to reminisce on nostalgic sounds (even if it's from 2012).

New Old Music

So many boy groups out there, I had to share one I recently found about. It's amazing what you find when you spend endless hours on the internet. But let's not talk about what I do, and focus on the music here, shall we?

IM5 - Zero Gravity

I'm not sure how they got the name (other than the 5), but it seems simple enough to remember. The introduction may throw some off because it's unnecessary, but once it plays on, the sound is totally different than what expected. Instead of guitars and typical Pop/Rock, you get dance beats and choreography and awesomeness. I especially like how it builds up after the chorus, whipping out full energy. And if it wasn't enough, they are all in black & white - my favourite combination. Me wonders if they will stay with this sound, or explore others... Didn't see this coming from the first video I saw.

New Old Music

I love music videos, and this one was just playing on TV one day... It was part of the new music segment - except, it was released last year. Would this be considered Lounge, or very relaxed House? I know for sure, it's irresistible.

Disclosure ft Sam Smith - Latch

They are a brother duo from the UK, and they are young! So it comes out surprising to me when I find out that this masterpiece comes from two men who are barely legal... Maybe it's my fault for thinking of impure thoughts. Not even that lady singing gibberish gets on my nerves, there's a caché behind it. The beat is what, xylophone background? Basic, but enough to let the senses go wild. Interesting for a first single on their debut album. I really can't wait to see what else these boys got. Their career is only beginning.
