2017, the year finally coming to an end in some hours from now, and a nice year has it been alright. Yes, I can say that not from the other usual perspectives of life, particularly my life, but from one perspective that has always taken front row seat in the drama that we are all part of, called life, and the perspective is music, for me. Music has been that never ending companion, who doesn’t leave you, doesn’t disappoint you so often, does take care of you in your darkest as well as your brightest moments, doesn’t take influenced decisions, and just lifts you up every day, every hour 🙂
2017, a year of revelation of new music for me
Yes, I am fortunate enough to come across some amazing music in 2017, particularly in my continuous search for new artists and new music, as well as new music from industry giants and veterans. And such mind blowing versatility, creative excellence and talents to discover and enjoy, it has been really a year of revelation for me, and that’s why I decided to do a recap of the music and the videos of new and old artists which really moved me, amazed me, thrilled me, soothed me, calmed me and kept me searching for more. It’s always a pleasure to share the favorite music I enjoy, with everyone, and that’s exactly what I am going to do once more on this last day of 2017 and wish that we can keep on enjoying and getting amazed by the music we all love. My recap will include music from all my favorite genres and categories I generally listen to.
Lost Without You Freya Ridings
First up, here’s my latest find, Freya Ridings, singer songwriter from England. With a gorgeous and haunting voice, her piano driven renditions give me ample proof to say with confidence that she will definitely make her mark in the coming year with her debut EP coming up. In every performance she has given till now, she has enthralled her listeners with the power of her voice and her gorgeous looks too. Here’s her beautiful song Lost Without You for you all, enjoy.
My Soul I Anna Leone
Swedish artist Anna Leone is my next discovery this week. Her debut song My Soul I clearly establishes her song writing ability as well as her gorgeous voice. I fell in love with this song and it forms a perfect choice to share with you all.
The Pit Public Service Broadcasting
Next up is British rock outfit Public Service Broadcasting and their song The Pit. I recently found them out even though they are around for quite a while now. Recently they have come back with a new album where they have talked about the Welsh mining industry and created some lovely songs. Lovely flowing guitar works in this song with the narrative style of the band makes this song worth listening.
Coldplay needs no introduction at all, since they have already attained cult following and have become household name in the music loving world, being one of the biggest rock outfits from England to conquer the world, and like many, I am a big fan of Coldplay for long. They have come up with a surprise EP this year of which here’s sharing with you a beautiful song called Aliens. Hope you will love this one.
Our Way Canyon City
Next up is Nashville artist Paul Johnson and his band Canyon City, my discovery this year. Canyon City simple acoustic indie ambient sound and Paul’s amazing song writing and lovely voice makes every song special, and great to listen to. Here’s the song Our Way for all of you from Canyon City, enjoy 🙂
Among the big and veteran names, Irish rockers U2 command respect and authority in the music industry spanning a long and checkered career. Many of us have been listening to U2 since our school and college days. And its always heartening to find such old bands coming up with new music as this beautiful song from their recently released new album. Enjoy the greatness of such stalwart bands like U2.
Arms Open The Script
I was really surprised to find this new song from already established band like the Irish rockers The Script. When I listened to it and saw the video, I was deeply moved. This is an emotionally strong and very powerful song from such talented band like The Script who are already one of my top favorites. Here’s Arms Open for you, surely this song will move you all.
Oslo Anna of the North
Norwegian artist Anna Lotterud is my next find this year. Her simple atmospheric ethereal dream pop with the stage name Anna of the North is already doing the rounds in the music scene, and here’s her song Oslo for you all, enjoy.
