This might sound weird but, I've kind of gone through a music detox. Being a teenager, music was really important to me, it made me feel like I was connected. There was a point in my life when I just stopped listening/looking for new music to listen to. I would prefer silence and some of the music I was listening to reminded me too much of other things.
Whatever, it sounds cheesy. Recently I discovered this function on Spotify where you can listen to music according to the genre and mood you're in (they even have 'white noise', not sure when you'd want to listen to that!) Anyway, This was honestly life changing, I've started to feel connected and excited about music (add extra cheese here). (I'm sorry Adrian, although I think you're pretty aware of my non-music listening habit).
I've found some pretty great new songs and thought I'd share with you the music I've been listening to lately. Now, one thing you might not know about me is that my all time favourite band is Hatebreed, yes, seriously. I used to have their band logo stuck on the back of my car window. I love heavy music and I have since I was a teenage emo. (haha) But, I've always also loved other genres of music too.
I think I kind of listen to everything and it's always really dependant on what mood I'm in. At the moment, I'm in a pretty calm and reflective mood and I felt really compelled to do a blog post on what I'm listening to at the moment. So, I created a playlist on my Spotify called Fill The Silence. If you're going through that silent part in your life then you don't have to listen to these songs, but if you do, I really hope you like them.
