Chelsea is a young newish artist that I have been OBSESSED with! Her voice is like no other, its a combination of raspy but also polished, you have to hear it to understand it! The production of her songs are usually very upbeat with a combination of unique instruments in the background, but on the opposite side she has her slow songs with lyrics that are beautifully thought out. You may of heard of her for one of her most popular songs 'You make me' (which you HAVE TOO listen to if you haven't already), however more personal favourites of mine are; 'Your shirt' 'The reason' and 'You're not missing me'.
Who? BETTY WHO!! An artist who has been around for a while but deserves so much more attention! She's got some classic pop sounding songs that make you feel good, however production wise she's trying something really different and its pretty cool, songs like 'I Love You Always Forever' and 'Taste'. She also has some badass hair so if thats not a reason to check her out then thats your loss, soz. But if you do check her out! Here's some of my favourite songs of her's; 'Just Thought You Should Know' 'Ignore Me' 'Friend like me' and 'Look Back'. Honestly there's too many to choose!!
So I'm about 99.9% You've heard of this artist and 100% sure you've heard 'I Like Me Better' (if you haven't check it out) BUT his album is filled with some of the best lyrics that my ears have ever heard. His album is called 'I met you when I was 18' which I love this title so much, it gives you such a good idea and insight to what the album is going to be about, it sets a scene which I think is really clever to do with album titles. His voice is heavenly and has a hint of a pop tone to it, with the production matching the songs lyrics perfectly, instead of just hearing the words your feeling them with the instruments, if that makes sense? The album seems like its about one person and what their relationship was like, there's a song for every emotion, and it makes you feel like you where part of this relationship with super vulnerable songs to feel good songs. Listening to the lyrics you pick up on special details about this relationship making you feel almost invested into the romance. I honestly can't just recommend one song! if you have a long car journey or you're just chilling at home, give him a listen and you can thank me later :).
There they are! I know this is a short post but I really want to make this a once a month type of post, where I would recommend 3 new artists every month, let me know what you think of this idea! As you can probably tell I love music with a different sound and artists that try something new. I'm also a sucker for lyrics, something that really makes you think and something you can connect with. Again if there is an artist or band you think I and others should be adding to our playlists let me know in the comments or tweet me @IzzyDriscoll, and let me know if you give these artists a listen! Thank you for reading and happy listening :)
