YoungeBlood Hawke – We Come Running

Artist: We Come Running by YoungeBlood Hawke

Genre: Indie-pop

Mood: Upbeat, Fun

About the Music: An oldie, but one of my favorites – this song is about determination and recognizing your potential. When it was released, the group stated they considered it to be their “personal anthem.” No matter how bad or discouraging things seemed for the band, they never allowed it to get them down. It’s upbeat, uplifting and fun; a testament to the kind of band they are and a showcase of their perseverance.

Say What?! – This video was put together by the band, not only to release their first single and have an amazing experience doing it, but also to promote the conservation of sharks. They hoped this video would show how majestic and misunderstood these creatures are, since they are surrounded by negative stigma and the killing of sharks put them at risk of being endangered.

“Sharks are being slaughtered and are in danger of being wiped out,” adds the group. “They play a vital role in the food chain and without them, the ecosystem could not survive. Being close enough to have these majestic creatures brush past us was an experience that words cannot describe. They were intelligent, curious and represent the power and mystery of nature. We’d like to be a part of preserving that. Hopefully, this video will help shine a light on the importance of these gorgeous, misunderstood animals and their important role in our ecosystem.”

The Colourist – Little Games

Artist: Little Games by The Colourist

Genre: Indie-pop

Mood: Upbeat

About the Music: Another song post for The Colourist, and it doesn’t stop here! The more I listen to them the more I like them.

This song has a fun, electronic, indie-pop sound. Adam Castilla and Maya TuttleI are the lead singers; their voices compliment each other, creating a unique and addictive sound. Maya’s voice reminds me of Emily Haines, the lead singer of Metric. Maya is also the drummer of the band – which is pretty B.A.

Their LPThe Colouristwas released in March of this year. I would definitely encourage you to check them out if you like what you hear.

Clean Bandit – Extraordinary

Song: Extraordinary by Clean Bandit

Genre: Classical, Synthpop

Mood: Upbeat, Fun

About the Music: You probably know this band from their single “Rather Be“, which in 2014 topped the charts in the UK and landed a spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. Their music is a combination of classical and pop music; infusing the elegant sounds of the violin and cello with electronic dance. They follow their own rules, producing the music themselves and finding other artists they admire to sing and collaborate with.

This is a beautiful video that was shot, with the help of a few friends, on the beaches and streets of Cuba.

“(Cuba’s) an incredible country – unlike anywhere else we have ever been to. We wanted to capture the euphoric feeling of the music in sunshine and dancing.” – Grace Chatto (Cello/Vocals)
