May 2018: Beck, Drenge & Arctic Monkeys

One of my aims for this year was to find some new music every single month to ensure I went back to focusing on the discovery of new music. So every month, I’ll post a quick update with the artist or tracks I’m loving/have discovered that month.

Drenge – This Dance

This new track from Drenge is utterly brilliant, which to be fair based on everything else they have released to date I would have been surprised if it wasn’t. It’s haunting and heavy and scuzzy and an utterly brilliant rock track with bonus catchy hooks. After listening to their last album to death, it’s great to have some new music to put on repeat from these guys.

Beck – Colors

At the other end of the spectrum in many ways is the new track from Beck which is just utterly wonderful! It’s upbeat, happy and makes you wanna dance, the infectious beats, great build up’s and sing along vocals were made for the festival season and it will most definitely be an anthem of this festival season.

Arctic Monkeys – Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino

Finally, the album of the moment and one of the most polarising albums I’ve spoken about and listened to in a long time. Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino is an utter triumph of an album, it’s intriguing and interesting and difficult but in a way that makes it utterly satisfying when you listen to the tracks and get what the band are trying to do here. Even if you don’t get it, the mystery and sheer brilliance of their musicality and songwriting on Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino are extremely impressive to behold. These guys have definitely grown into a truly brilliant band!
