So turns out, me and Anne of Green Gables and admittedly most other people love spring. I’ve been smiling so much these past few months not only because it’s basically my job but because I can’t help it when the sun is beaming down at me. This spring I have come up with ideas for two new projects; I want to write music for an ep and I want to create an app. Both of these projects require a lot of new knowledge and so my summer will be choc-a-bloc with watching tutorials, programming and production.
Whilst curating my spring playlist I realised that it was so much more pop orientated and cheerful than winter was. I was slightly incredulous and amused at how vigorously different the two playlists were in mood, and the direct correlation to my and the weather’s mood. But I realised that artists, unlike oblivious me, must be aware of the seasons and the sound of their album and therefore release albums at appropriate – ish times. Tove Stryke released an album full of bops that felt like spring sun and summer breezes. I discovered so many new artists and bands in spring including Rainbow Kitten Surprise who released an album redefining the word bop. So in this playlist we got pop mixed in with mellow guitar vibes; a perfect soundtrack to contemplatively watching everything become vibrant, dancing in the fierce sun and sticking your head in a thunderstorm.
