Hit or Hate: “Brother” by Kodaline

After a few years of no music, Kodaline has come back big. Their new song “Brother” exceeded my expectations and every part of the song makes me more and more excited for what’s to come. I fell in love with Kodaline – an alternative/folk/rock band from Ireland – when they came out with In A…

Sound Showdown: Imagine Dragons

On June 23, 2017 Imagine Dragons released their new album Evolve. Instead of doing a basic review, I decided to put two songs against each other to ultimately come out with a winner. The winner wins basically nothing, but I earn the satisfaction of finally deciding which tune I like more. Imagine Dragons came into…

Top 5: Coldplay

As a die-hard Coldplay fan, I’m surprised I haven’t made a full post about them before on this blog.

Top 5: The 1975

I personally have…

(This is respectable though because everyone has their own (preferences). I…

Sound Showdown: NEEDTOBREATHE

As a long-term fan of the band NEEDTOBREATHE, I discovered that they have two singles off of their most recent album that should go head-to-head in Sound Showdown. NEEDTOBREATHE is a rock band that makes amazing music and many (many) singles that deserve more praise. However, this week I am highlighting the songs “Hard Love”…
