  • Iggy Azalea released her album The New Classic. It features great tracks such as Fancy (feat. Charli XCX) and Change Your Life (feat. T.I.)

  • Down is an EP from the band The Kooks. Be sure to check out Melody Maker and Hooray For Henry.

Noah And The Whale,
Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down


the best of the best: my all time favorite songs → 7. 5 years time - noah and the whale 

'cause i'll be laughing at all your silly little jokes
and we’ll be laughing about how we used to smoke
all those stupid little cigarettes and drink stupid wine
'cause it's what we needed to have a good time

To Kill A King,
Cannibals With Cutlery

Wolves - To Kill A King
Dress yourself in parody
At least you’ll look the part
Wolves will keep you warm
If you convince yourself you’re one

Hello tumblr! My name is Rachel (aka dare-4-d-i-s-t-a-n-c-e), I’m an 18-year old English student and my greatest love is music. I started this blog a year and a half ago because I wanted to connect with other people through great music, and I want to thank each and every person who thought that this blog was worth a like, reblog, follow, or even a glance. The songs listed below are my favourites, partly for their lyrics and sounds, but mostly due to their meanings to me. I promise that if you message us with your favourite tracks, we’ll both have a good listen, because we know how much music can mean. Unlike our other playlists, this one has an order to it, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do:

  1. When I’m At Home - The Maine. If there’s one word that makes me think the most it is home.
  2. Passenger Seat - Death Cab For Cutie. To me, it describes the greatest feeling in the world: peaceful and serene acceptance.
  3. Me - The 1975. I’ve never loved music as much as the first time I listened to this song. Plus, every time Matty speaks it makes my mind spin and twirl with cloudy thoughts. How he learned all those words, we’ll never know.
  4. Simple Song - The Shins. I’ve never fallen into the romantic love that many writers speak about, but I feel as though I’ve had the miraculous luck of experiencing Agape. This song perfectly speaks about it; it’s so simple, yet so incredibly important. 
  5. Forest Whitaker - Bad Books. First song on the list that I don’t love mainly because of it’s lyrics; they’re wonderful, of course. But this is my go-to, on-repeat track whenever and wherever I happen to be.
  6. Iscariot - Walk The Moon. I’ve never heard harmonies come together so beautifully. It is true when the classical composers claimed that the human voice is the most beautiful instrument.
  7. Antichrist - The 1975. I will never not be dumbfounded by how they come up with sounds like these. I am captivated by the idea of this track, especially by the description “Archaic and Content”. I get that one may be content, but why would anyone describe another as Archaic? It is a strange thought. 
  8. Never Let You Go - Third Eye Blind. Yeah, I love guitars. 
  9. Dark Blue - Jack’s Mannequin. Bands come and go, but the artists that influence you in all aspects of your life will always stay.
  10. The Wind - The Fray. It’s okay to be lost sometimes (as cliche as that sounds), but this track reminds me that there’s always something or someone to hold onto.

If any one wants a mini-playlist, just drop your name in our ask box and we’ll give you a few songs to check out!

The 1975 - Settle Down (EMBRZ Remix)

  1. Fall Away - twenty one pilots. Even their old stuff was incredibly unique.
  2. Stay High (Tove Lo Flip) - Hippie Sabotage. It’s gained popularity recently for having a sick sound.
  3. Cavalier (The 1975 Remix) - James Vincent McMorrow. The 1975 are brilliant at producing, so of course this remix does both artists justice.
  4. Make It Without You - Andrew Belle. For those that need a piano break-up song.
  5. It’s Okay - Land of Talk. It’s needed when you need to feel confident in some decisions you weren’t so sure of.
  6. Black Swan Song - Athlete. Beautiful lyrics, with a comforting voice and matching instruments.
  7. Calgary - Bon Iver. Skinny Love wasn’t his only good song.
  8. I Heard It Through the Grapevine - Marvin Gaye. Yeah, I love this song, who wouldn’t?
  9. No One’s Hear To Sleep - Naughty Boy feat. Bastille. Absolutely love it when Bastille collaborates with others, because their sound goes brilliantly with anything.
  10. I Wanna Get Better - Bleachers. I heard a member of Fun. started this band, which would make sense, considering the sound is similarly catchy.
