5 Bands (or singers):
AlunaGeorge - This duo is made up of Aluna and George (see what they did there);she sings and he produces. I love Alunas voice-it is sugar sweet and almost childlike, and I like the contrast between that and the music that goes with it, which is electronic and often unusual. Also, I love the video for 'Your Drums Your Love' because it is in an art gallery but there is also dancers and a bear and her necklace has a 3D effect.
Chvrches - I find that there is something mystical and captivating about their music. The songs are very emotive, even though I don't think the lead singer is so expressive in her voice, which I think is beautiful, by the way. 'The Mother we Share' is inspirational and really moving, and at the same time sad. 'Lies' I find aggressive and angry, with an incredible amount of tension. Basically, Chvrches music has the power to change my mood completely.
Charli XCX - I love this girl. She is obsessed with the 90's-I feel like I could have met her on tumblr. Not only that, but her music really makes me want to dance. (Download a ton of it for free, off of her website!!!!!!!! I got two of her mixtapes: Super Ultra, Heartbrakes and Earthquakes.) There is a million pop culture references in her music, in fact one song is basically dedicated to Justin Bieber (Dance 4 U). Her music is a mix of dialogue from films, catchy tunes and her slow half talking-half singing. This music is something completely new and more riddled with pop culture than any other music I've heard before. When listening to it you feel like you're at a slumber party in a room filled with angsty teenage girls, and flashing disco lights and platform trainers and Spice Girls posters. And there's a song dedicated to Justin Bieber.
Kyla La Grange - Kyla La Grange is a singer-songwriter, and I think she is pretty talented. Her voice is absolutely amazing- dark, but at the same time angelic, and her lyrics transport you to the position portrayed in the song, so you can smell and taste and see it. Her debut album, Ashes, is moody and dark, however lively and catchy. Something about it makes it a winter album for me-maybe it is the fact I've listened to it a lot this winter, or maybe it is something about the music. Maybe it's the way that, even though it covers dark and depressing subjects, the music somehow warms you up, like her voice is a cup of hot chocolate in a room heated by a roaring fire, when outside there is a snowstorm.
