Week two of Tuesday Tunes comes after a pretty relaxed four day weekend that was well overdue. I don’t very often get 1 day off from work and uni so having four days was pretty amazing. I’ve reset my mind and I think I am ready to tackle all the work I know I have between me and the rest of the semester, I think. This week I wanted to share something that currently reflects the mellowness of my current mood.
I discovered Of Monsters and Men by accident about a year after they released their first album, My Head is an Animal. I like to listen to them when I need a little bit of a pick me up. This may be after a long day at work and I am walking home or while I am trying to find motivation to study. I find the album, refreshing, invigorating and simple. Much like a mellow Sunday afternoon should be.
Crystals is the first single Of Monsters and Men have released from their upcoming album, Beneath The Skin, which is due out in June this year. The track does not disappoint. It continues with their signature simple but catchy melodies, the all too singable lyrics and drum beats that are impossible to not tap your feet to. Crystals is just making me impatient for the upcoming album.
