Happy Monday peeps!
I hope that you have another 4-day weekend to look forward to this week and that you had a wonderful Christmas. My New Year's Eve traditions are undeniably lame and usually involve eating way too many appetizers and passing out in a food coma before midnight. I imagine this year will be no different.
Ed Sheeran blessed us this past week with a new single called Afterglow, then promptly disappeared again off of social media to focus on being a dad. Afterglow is dripping with nostalgia and feels like the perfect way to close out the year - reminiscing and holding on to what we feel is most dear to us.
Speaking of nostalgia, AJR made us feel small again with their song My Play about a kid navigating divorce and how it changed his own viewpoint on relationships. This one hurts.
ILLENIUM, Dabin and Lights collaborate to give us Hearts on Fire. It feels reminiscent of early Avril Lavigne with an alt-rock vibe. This is a sound that has been missing from popular music and it's very refreshing to hear.
