Lana Del Rey Gets “High By The Beach”

Lana Del Rey’s music is a hit or miss for me. While I thoroughly enjoyed her Born to Die album, I didn’t connect much with her last release, Ultraviolence. However, I’m really liking the songs I’ve heard so far from her upcoming album, Honeymoon, including the latest single High By The Beach. There’s something addictive about the track, and Lana’s drowsy singing pulls you in perfectly. … Continue reading Lana Del Rey Gets “High By The Beach”

[Review] Florence + The Machine’s “Ceremonials”

By Kai

Florence Welch has always looked wickedly intriguing to me. Her songs are otherworldly, encompassing unimaginable depth and substance. The one that piqued my interest the most was 2008’s “Dog Days Are Over,” but to be honest, I never took the time to check out her other stuff until now. Florence has once stated that she wants her music to sound like throwing yourself out of a tree, or off a tall building, or as if you’re being sucked down into the ocean and you can’t breathe. I don’t know whether I should be frightened or fascinated by that but it certainly makes you want to listen to what she has to offer. “Ceremonials” is the second release from Florence + the Machine and I can tell you right off that the music truly overwhelms you with emotions. The sound is completely different from the usual, and that makes it so interesting. While I’m not exactly a fan of the spooky kind, I can appreciate a good work of art if it appears to be so.

Evanescence releases “What You Want”

 

It’s been a long wait, 5 years to be exact, but rock group Evanescence has returned with their highly anticipated new hard-hitting single “What You Want“. Without any bias whatsoever, I have to say that I’m loving this new sound. It’s a bit different from their symphonic style and I’m sure they’ll have some of that on their upcoming third studio album (watch the MTV clips if you haven’t), but “What You Want” is definitely heavy rock and killing it. Listen to the single below, purchase it on iTunes now, and check out the lyrics here: Continue reading “Evanescence releases “What You Want””
