Press Play Friday is back!
Attention all music lovers: I’m back from a rather long music sabbatical – that mostly consisted of listening only to Florence + The Machine for days on end – with some new music, in another edition of Press Play Friday! All right. Please save your applause until the end. For those new to the game, Press Play Friday is your one-stop shop for discovering the latest in music, with featured artists and fresh song suggestions. This week, I’ve searched my extensive iTunes Library for something extra special for you. Grab your headphones, because some of your favorite artists are here, giving you the latest additions to their exclusive repertoires; launching introductions to new albums. For the music obsessed – like myself – some tunes may be familiar. For others, this will be the perfect opportunity to FanGirl or nerd-out about a familiar musician or group. Whatever the case, I want to hear what you think of this fresh music.
Anyone in the mood for some Fun.? While most are just hopping on the Fun. train, I’ve had the fortunate experience of being a fan for a while now – ever since seeing them open for Jack’s Mannequin two years ago. After gaining moderate success with their first album, Aim and Ignite, the group is, once again, bringing their signature style into the mix, debuting their sophomore album, Some Nights. The title track of the album is an anthem of sorts, awarding us with the unique sound Fun. is known for. With a chorus of voices, sweeping melodies, and an electro-pop style, the song is a definite highlight on the new record.
