I’ve been in a sort of listening slump these past few weeks, just listening to Fall Out Boy and Twenty One Pilots on repeat, without really paying attention or listening to new music.
Then, when scrolling through the music I saved on Spotify, I found Troy Sivan’s album, Blue Neighbourhood.
IT. IS. SO. GOOD.
I wasn’t a huge fan of Troye Sivan’s earlier work. (I know I featured Happy Little Pill before but this new album is even better.)
My favourite song has to be “FOOLS”:
I’m love the way this song starts out with acoustic piano, and it builds with synth and drums into this burst of a chorus. In honesty, Sivan’s voice isn’t particularly special, but I like the mood and tone that it sets. It’s very sedate, and it gives you something to follow while you revel in the synth and drums and beat in the background.
I’m hoping I can start The Playlist up on this blog again, (when was the last time I posted one again?) but I need help to get out of this listening slump! Recommend me songs in the comments!
