London Grammar-Truth Is A Beautiful Thing

Hannah, Daniel and Dot are the people that make London Grammar what it is. Personally, sometimes I love them and sometimes I hate them, but right now I am in the love zone for this trio. Their last track "Truth is a beautiful thing" made me believe in them again. London Grammar's music has been described as "a blend of ambient, ethereal and classical sounds"[26] with melancholy guitar, soaring vocals, and plaintive lyrics. The songs are a collaborative effort as Hannah explains: "I write the lyrics and the top lines. But the songs initiate from all three of us. Dot will write a piano part or a music score. Dan will add some guitars." She describes the songs as "emotionally affected" and "writes about people who come in and out of my life." They make new music for the first time since 2013. And judging by their new album, this break worked perfect for them musically. You can listen to their new track here.

Lucy Rose ft. The Staves-Floral Dresses

Lucy Rose is back and this time is more determined than ever.
In her brand new track "Floral Dresses" she embraces her folk side... but you know folk doesn't mean light and happy and joyful, it can also be dark and heavy, especially when you combine it with lyrics like "...Your disapproval cuts through..." For this new work, Rose collaborates with The Staves, for the most haunting vocals you have heard.
Before the documentary about her Latin American Tour organised by her fans comes out, Lucy Rose, is ready to win your little souls for ever with the music video for Floral Dresses.
Enjoy it here on Lyrics On My Wall.

Cold War Kids-Love is Mystical

Since "Hospital Beds", Cold War Kids have a special place in my musical heart. They have created a unique way to express hard feelings. They get too personal, and they are not afraid to share their own personal stories through their music. On February 2, 2017, Cold War Kids released the lead single, entitled "Love Is Mystical", to their sixth studio album L.A. Divine, which is to be released on April 7, 2017. Willett says about the song, “It’s about supernatural love—looking for inspiration and meaning, surrendering to feeling, love calling out your name and that journey we must go on to find it.”
You can watch here the mesmerizing music video and read the lyrics.

The XX-Say Something Loving

We are talking today about the XX. A band from UK, that is pop,experimental.....whatever you want it to be. As they are saying on their Facebook account "It all started in a bedroom in south west london, after school, drinking too much pepsi. We just keep on growing." I am sure you already know them, but you probably don't know that they have just released their new track "Say Something Loving", which is a celebration of love, memories and being back home! Here's their new video for 'Say Something Loving', shot in London and directed by their friend Alasdair McLellan. They wanted to celebrate their  hometown and revisit some of the places that remind them of their friendship, when they were growing up.

Alt-J - 3WW

It's not a secret that I am in love with Alt-J since the first time I listened to them. From that first time, many fundamental things have changed for the band. My favorite member, Gwil Sainsbury, left the band in 2014 and their second album "This is All Yours" was completely different from their debut album "An Awesome Wave". Of course, this is not unexpected considering the band's name Alt-J, which stands for the greek letter Δ, that in Maths is the symbol of change. After the tour of "This is All Yours", the band took a big break and they came back today with this post on their facebook page "We'd like to thank you for your patience over the last year or so. After finishing touring 'This Is All Yours' in December 2015 we took a long break. Thom released a solo album; Gus opened a restaurant; Joe has been watching a lot of films. We hadn't set a time limit on our time off but by August 2016 we were ready to get back into the studio. The result is our third album, RELAXER, and we are really excited for you to hear it." Until June, you can have a listen to their single "3WW".
You can only decide if you like it or not... ;)
