Monthly Mixtape : September

Monday, October 02, 2017

Over the past month I have been obsessed with so many new songs! I have no idea why, but I seem to have discovered a lot of great music this month, so what better time than to share my favourites in a monthly mixtape round up?

First up is of course Taylor Swift's comeback single, Look What You Made Me Do. I have been waiting for new music from Taylor for so long now and she definitely didn't disappoint with her first UK number one. Sure, not everyone has liked it and it has definitely grown on me since my first listen and now I love it. Similarly I have on my playlist ...Ready For It? which I possibly prefer over LWYMMD. I just love the chorus so much, the 'in the middle of the night' part is so dreamy. I am so excited for Reputation and you will definitely be hearing my thoughts about it when it's out!

Another song I have been listening to, perhaps more around August, is the song Brand New Moves by Hey Violet. It's the first song of theirs I have listened to but I think it came up on Spotify suggested or something and I really like it. In a way, they have a bit of a similar sound to Paramore, who's song Told You So I have also been listening to lately. You may remember I loved Hard Times, and now this song is out I really like it. Their songs are just so uplifting right now.

Miracles (Someone Special) by Coldplay is another uplifting song, more so because of the lyrics though. I am a huge fan of Coldplay, none of their releases ever disappoint me, and this new song really is something special.

When I went to see Olly Murs with Louisa Johnson as the support act, I was really impressed by her so lately I remembered to go and listen to her song Best Behavior. Since then I have also been listening to it a lot. It's so fun to dance to and I reckon when she brings out an album it will be really good.

It has been lovely to hear James Arthur's voice back on the music channels and radio with his new single with Rudimental called Sun Comes Up. He has such a distinctive voice and it actually really suits this new song which is more upbeat than his usual releases. What About Us by P!nk is a song in the charts I am loving right now, it's not particularly happy or upbeat but it's really chilled.

When I listened to The Man by The Killers for the first time I wasn't particuarly keen on their new sound, however now I have listened to it more and more I am actually really loving it. It's so catchy (not sure me going round singing 'you're looking at the man' looks quite normal though) and it's really fun. It's very different than their old stuff though.

My final song on the playlist is the song I am most obsessed with at the moment, the song Lonely Together by Avicii and Rita Ora. I have had it on repeat all week because I honestly can't get enough of it.

What have you been listening to lately?


  1. The Killers are one of my all time favourites! Louisa Johnson has really grown in me, but I can't say the same for LWYMMD x Nikita

  2. I love LWYMMD and I can't wait for Tay's album to be released next month. I don't like Ready For it as much, I just love the vibes from LWYMMD.

  3. Nice ones you've shared here! It's so nice to find some new choices when it comes to music every now and then :)
