Underrated Artists You Need to Listen To

hey guyssss!!!

How are you all?? I hope you’re doing greattt ☺️

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m kind of in love with music and will force my favourite songs onto you no matter what (with kindnesss, obviously). And recently I’ve been recommending a lot of songs by artists that are lesser known or very underrated so I decided to share these very cool talented people with you guys!

I even put the links for the songs that I like specially for you so you can listen to them super quick.

I’m starting with Abigail because she is a QUEEEEN. If you’ve been on TikTok a lot lately you’ll probably know her from the ‘If Bridgerton Was a Musical’ concept (which has super great songs that you’ll love even if you haven’t watched Bridgerton, like me). But she’s literally a popstar and has such a good voice and writes all of her songs. Lol I don’t know what else to say about her except that she writes awesome hype songs that you would dance to if we could party right now. I mean you could always have a party in your room, by yourself.

My fav songs: Future Ex, Nobody Cares, Where’s That Girl? (where’s that girl is so goood)

Finneas

finneas

Next is FINNEAS because he is also extremely awesome. I think he is pretty known but still underrated. For anyone who doesn’t know, he is Billie Eilish’s brother and co-writes and produces all of her songs, and he’s also produced and written with/for artists like Selena Gomez and Camila Cabello so he’s quite cool. The fact that he’s an amazing songwriter, amazing producer and amazing singer just blows my mind. His style is more alternative pop, I feel like, but I’m telling you, his songwriting and song concepts are wayyyy too good.

My fav songs: Claudia, I Don’t Miss You At All, Let’s Fall in Love for the Night, American Cliché

Boysworld

Now we have a very fun girl group named BOYSWORLD. If you’re wondering why they’re called Boysworld when they’re all girls it’s because ‘boys’ stands for ‘best of yourself’ and then I think it was also for irony? Kinda remember them saying that? Anyways, they all have unique voices, harmonize suuuper well and are good dancers.  They were actually just formed I think a year and a half ago so they only have two songs out at the moment but wouldn’t it be nice to say you knew them before they got big?

My fav songs: Girlfriends, Wingman

Sabrina Carpenter

Sabrina Carpenter! Her songs are genuinely good pop songs that would definitely be super big if more people heard them. They aren’t cheesy songs that you might think she’d make because of her Disney background, she has grown up and so has her music. Plus her vocals??? I didn’t expect her to be that good, but she is, so go listen.

My fav songs: Bad Time, Almost Love, Sue Me, Paris

Gracie Abrams

And lastly we have Gracie Abramssss. Her songs are more soft songs, compared to the rest of the artists above. It’s more like bedroom pop (I think that’s what you would call it yikes). She has a really nice voice that is kind of raspy at times and that sounds so good 😭 Her voice and her songwriting style make her songs feel a lot more personal which I really love!
My fav songs: Friend, 21, Mean It

Tadaaaaaa.

Those are the 5 smaller-ish artists I think deserve more.

I beg beg beg beg you to listen to them. PLEASEEE. Listen to any one or two (or all 😉) of the artists and you have to lemme know what you think, that would make my day. Please. You won’t regret it, I’m telling you.

Okay that’s it 🙂 Tell me in the comments which singers you like that you think are very underrated, or even a singer that’s already popular but you think still deserve more recognition. I’d loooove to hear your recommendations 💖

Love, Hreem xx

(p.s. check out my coverssss it would mean the world ❤ )

evermore album!!!!

Taylor Swift 'Evermore' Album Review | SPIN

hey guyssss!

I hope you’re all doing great and enjoying the start of the holidays (if they’ve started for you yet).

I am aware that I’m here with another Taylor Swift album review just around 4 months after the last one but IT’S NOT MY FAULT! I blame Taylor for releasing another amazing album so fast.

Lol the only thing I’m upset about is that I was planning to talk about Little Mix’s album ‘Confetti’ and I already wrote most of the post but then came evermore and I just … I couldn’t not. If you guys wouldn’t mind/would be interested in a post about Confetti do let me know cause I really love that album, it’s in my top 5 of the albums released this year.

So yeah, onto evermore.

Taylor decided to once again drop a surprise album less than 5 months after the last one (folklore). evermore and folklore are sister albums so the sound is almost the same and the songs are still written as if you’re telling a story. But evermore sounds a bit more mature to me and the production sounds a lot more magical while folklore sounded more melancholy. The topics of the songs are really interesting too, like a rejected proposal, a murder mystery and a song about her grandmother.

It’s just such a good album and ohmygosh the lyrics, the lyricssss. The lyrics are heaven sent and that’s all I can say. Plus the fact that this album was made in around 4 months??? and it’s a masterpiece??

Now here are my top 5 lyrics and my current ranking of the songs. Super hard to decide by the way.

✨✨✨

You had a speech, you’re speechless. Loved slipped beyond your reaches. And I couldn’t give a reason. – champagne problems

I don’t like that falling feels like flying till the bone crush. – gold rush (I HAVE BEEN OBSESSED WITH THIS LYRIC SINCE THE SECOND I HEARD IT, incase you were wondering ☺️)

I know my love should be celebrated but you tolerate it AND I made you my temple, my mural, my sky. Now I’m begging for footnotes in the story of your life. – tolerate it

Don’t treat me like some situation that needs to be handled. I’m fine with my spite and my tears and my beers and my candles. – closure

                                                                          ✨✨✨

Tadaaa.

Finally, here is my ranking of the songs which has changed *so much* since my first listen.

gold rush
champagne problems
no body, no crime
tolerate it
long story short
closure
’tis the damn season
dorothea
willow
marjorie
ivy
happiness
evermore
coney island
cowboy like me

Now actually tada lol. There it is.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you made it this far you deserve a round of applause *cue the applause*.

Have you listened to evermore? What are your thoughts and which songs do you like or dislike? Do comment because I’d love to chat!

Love, Hreem xx

I Love the folkore Album!

Hey everybodyyy

I hope you’re enjoying your summer (if you can lol). I can’t believe it’s already August!!
This year took forever but it also went by super fast and it’s really strange but I mean, has anything been normal this year?

Nope.

Sooo this post is about Taylor Swift’s new album that she announced on July 23rd (rip 1D’s anniversary) and released on July 24th, THAT FAST. I was so confused when I saw the post about it because she had just released her last album (Lover) less than a year ago so nobody saw this coming.

The album was written in the first 3 months of quarantine so you would expect the quality of work to be a little less but it is her best album to date. It’s not her best album in the conventional way of being full of radio engineered pop hits with catchy melodies and stuff, it’s more about the lyrics and the fact that the album is so well-written and a lyrical masterpiece. If you haven’t listened to the album you should do that right now (after reading my post heheh) because I love ittt.

My ranking of songs when I first heard them is so different to the ranking now, I can’t believe I put some of those songs that low at the beginning lol. Also it’s impossible to rank them because I love almost all of them equally but here is my attempt right now:

cardigan
betty
august
my tears ricochet
illicit affairs
exile
invisible string
the last great american dynasty
the 1
7
this is me trying
mad woman
peace
hoax
mirrorball
epiphany

This is such a soft and storylike album that you should listen to on a rainy night, with pretty candles, wrapped in a cardigan (heh) and while drinking tea?? maybe?? Something super cool she did is she wrote three songs about a teenage love triangle and each song is from the perspective of a different person, if you don’t listen to anything else at least listen to those three (cardigan, betty & august). It’s so interesting once you see the lyrical parrallels in those songs.

Anyways I hope you enjoyed reading this post even though it isn’t as interesting because I really love music and it’s fun to tell other people about music ☺️

Let me know what songs you’ve heard/liked from the album in the comments or just tell me about your favourite album from any artist, I love reading your comments! 💖💖

Love, Hreem xx

(p.s. I’d love if you could check out my covers 🙂

Miss Americana

hello everyone!

What’ve you been up to?

Anyone who knows me knows that I realllllllly love Taylor Swift and her music and I have loved her since I was about 7 years old. If anyone I know is reading this…hi. It’s actually come to the point where people get super annoyed because I force them to listen to her songs and watch her documentary. Which is exactly what I’m writing this post about!

Last Friday (the 31st) Netflix released a documentary about Taylor Swift called ‘Miss Americana’ and it’s basically an inside look on her life and what really happens/happened to her. It’s also about her starting to take a more political stand and not just using her (amazing) voice to sing (amazing songs).

*My opinion is probably extremely biased but if you don’t believe me you should just watch the documentary and tell me what you think 🙂 *

She spoke a lot about her image, both the way she physically looks and the way other people tend to see her. It gives a very personal look into some great things that happened and also a lot of the disappointments and challenges that she had to face throughout her career. Taylor gets really vulnerable about what’s actually happening in her personal life and also what is going on in her family and it’s amazing because you wouldn’t expect there to be so many things for her to be worried about but of course there are. It’s interesting how everyone called her a serial dater but at one point she asks, “Shouldn’t I have someone I could call right now?” There was also information about both of the Kanye West incidents and what she felt about them and how the internet caused her to disappear for a year or two.

The next part sees her finding someone she really loves who has a more grounded life that is so different to hers. There’s lots of insight into the songwriting and recording process of a couple songs on Lover and some of reputation like Getaway Car, I Did Something Bad, Delicate, ME!, The Man, and her newest single only the young.

The final (kinda) part of the documentary is more about Taylor breaking her political silence and speaking out about what she really believes in and it’s all amazing.

The movie is really so inspiring and eye-opening and I hope you do go watch it!

Below are some of the moments that I just wanted to include so yeah please look at them:

My Year in 13 Pictures

HAPPY NEW YEAAARRR!!!

I know it’s already been 2020 for like 10 days but the last time you read a post from me was last year so yeah.

I enjoyed 2019 although there were a lot of ups and downs. I got to do a lot of traveling, try new things, meet new people and continue doing and improving things I aready love to do.

For this post I am going to share one picture from each month of 2019 (two for August) and a little caption if I have something to explain so I hope you enjoy it!

JANUARY💛 – a lot of people were giving us weird looks so I’m proud of us for getting as many pictures as we did.
FEBRUARY💛- Camila Cabelloooooo! I’ve already fangirled over her for like two posts before but she’s great so *deal with it* 🙂
MARCH💛- It was spirit week and we had to dress alike. The bathroom wasn’t the best place to take the picture but oh well
APRIL💛- sorry but I don’t even have any kind of explanation for this, it’s completely random.
MAY💛- A very pretty sunset in England 😊
JUNE💛- Let’s not talk about my weird facial expressions. That was a fun day though!
JULY💛- This says “I am your biggest fan” and it makes no sense but I have barely any pictures from July so let’s pretend this is really cool.
SEPTEMBER💛- This is a picture from art class which may not be extrememly interesting but the only other option was a picture of old mushrooms (also from art) so I think this was a clear winner.
OCTOBER💛- The ‘after’ of Halloween feat. Maia. We probably had a sugar rush right about then.
NOVEMBER💛- A picture from the Dua Lipa concert that I forgot to include in the post.
DECEMBER💛- This looks like a summery picture and is totally unrelated to December but I like this picture a lot.

ALSO, I don’t have any good pictures of this to include but I got my braces offff!!! I’ll point it out in a future post and good luck to anyone who has braces on right now, it’s very worth it.

Thank you so much for reading (probably just skimming through the pics but that still counts) and comment some of the best things that happened to you this year!

Love, Hreem xx

P.S. Who else is excited about Selena’s new album? I’ve heard a few songs already and I really like them.

Romance by Camila Cabello ❤️

Romancehello everybody!

I hope you’re enjoying December so far. It’s raining a bit at the moment and I am currently at school so that’s very exciting.

SO. I have been a fan of Camila Cabello since around ‘Crying in the Club’ I think (also I loved all of the girls from Fifth Harmony but we’re not going to talk about that right now). I love all of the songs from her first album as a solo artist and I even got to see her perform live at Redfest in February! Of course, she was amazing and sounds even better than the studio recording, anything else?

On Friday (the 6th of December) Camila released her second album, ‘Romance’. To say that I was excited is an understatement. I loved all of the singles she put out before the album and I was surprised she released so many lol. All of the songs are related to romance, obviously. The cover of the album is also very pretttyyyy. So this is my ranking of the songs atm (I don’t hate any, I just like some more than others)  ♥️

  1. This Love
  2. Used To This
  3. Should’ve Said It
  4. Liar
  5. Shameless
  6. Living Proof
  7. Easy
  8. Cry For Me
  9. First Man
  10. Dream of You
  11. Bad Kind of Butterflies
  12. Feel It Twice
  13. My Oh My
  14. Señorita

There are so many amazing lyrics and concepts in this album that I actually never expected and Camila is really more brave and confident with her voice which I love. I mean, have you heard living proof?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this album so please comment down below your fav songs too!!

Dua Lipa Concert!

hey everyone!

On November 15th (I am aware that was like two weeks ago but we’re not gonna talk about that) Dua Lipa performed in Dubai.

I originally wasn’t planning to go because I hadn’t heard all of her songs but then my friend invited me and some other people to the concert for her birthday so of course I couldn’t say no lol. For like 2-3 weeks I listened to Dua’s songs and learnt the lyrics and I’ll tell you which of her songs are my favourite at the end and also talk about the concert 🙂

I only have a handful of pics and videos  ( but I can’t attach videos 😔 )because I wanted to dance and jump around so here are the few I could fit into this post.

This picture is my favourite 💖

Birthday girl is in the middle 🎂

Okay, so Dua’s performance was around one-and-a-half hours I’m going to say and she was exactly on time. I’m late to everything in life so to me that’s an achievement.

She performed her songs flawlessly and danced around the stage the whole time. I’m surprised she could sing so amazing while she’s dancing and taking laps of the stage, my friends and I were exhausted and we barely did anything. Alsoo Dua performed her newest song ‘Don’t Start Now’ for the first time in concert which was pretty amazing and a great song to scream at the top of your lungs. (go listen to it if you haven’t already)

Overall her performance was amazing and obviously she ended with New Rules. She just didn’t sing ‘No Goodbyes’ ‘Room For 2’ and I’m pretty sure some other songs that I was really looking forward to.  These are my top 3 Dua Lipa songs if anyone was wondering:

  1. Last Dance (so underrated)
  2. Dreams
  3. Genesis

In no particular order *cough cough*

Comment what your favourite Dua Lipa songs are!!

xx
