My Music Mondays- YMAS, Snow Patrol, The 1975, Jorja Smith & Many more

You me at six - British Rock Band

This week or should I say the past few weeks/months, we have been blessed with some amazing new music across various genre’s. Much of the new music has been in and around the rock/band scene.

You Me At Six announce ‘VI’ their 6th album

With my previous article on my blog being about You Me At Six releasing a special announcement on BBC Radio one last week, it feels right for me to start this post off with them. If you haven’t seen the last article, I suggest you take a visit over by clicking here…

You will find that You Me At Six are my favourite band…

You me at six - British Rock Band

From this BBC Radio 1 interview we got to here two new songs from YMAS’s upcoming album which was also called ‘VI’. We all should have known i was going to be called six as it was to be announced on the 6th of June by You Me At Six. The songs they released this day were called ‘3AM’ and ‘Fat forward’.

3AM was released on air at around 7pm by Annie Mac and it went down a treat with the fans and for YMAS to announce on air that just after 8PM they would be releasing another ‘tune’ as a surprise to all.

Their new album is due to come out on the 5TH of October this year. The album which is a follow up to their 5th album night people has definitely pleased fans alike. Check out their new songs below.

3AM and Fast Forward


Jorja Smith brings London to Walsall

You may have never heard of Jorja Smith but let me tell you something she has got herself some talent. Recenly she has release a song called ‘Blue Lights’. The song which is highly popular on the British scene, is the spotlight song for the new British R&B and Pop scene.

The song itself was inspired by the Police’s perception of Grime music in the UK as Jorja was researching this topic as part of her Coursework for media. At the time of writing she was listening to Dizzle Rascal’s ‘Sirens’, which was also an inspiration.

Her new album called ‘Lost & Found’ can debut in to the UK Top albums chart at number three. Giving Jorja her dream 21st Birthday present.

Future has No Shame

Also this week Future has released his latest single called ‘no shame’. It dropped on the 4th on YouTube. Just like many of the sons and albums in this article, it was received with much anticipation and it was met with great success.

Since the 4th of June the music video has surpassed over 3 million views


Snow Patrol and Underoath albums-

Recently Snow Patrol and Underoath have released new albums. Snow Patrol released wildness 2 weeks ago. And in December they are playing  concert in the Odyssey Arena in Belfast.


Music video of the week- Neck Deep ft Sam Carter- Don’t Wait

Neck deep also released the video for Don’t wait featuring Sam Carter. This is probably one of my favourite songs of the ‘Peace and the Panic’ album. I could literally listen to this song all day.

The music video itself, is a very unique piece with Ben being tied up while singing.

Overall this week my music has been amazing. With new releases from The 1975 too, called ‘Give yourself a try’. Matt seems to have taken a little emo breakdown. All videos on YouTube will be linked below.

So The Journey Begins

So here goes my first post. You’re probably thinking to yourself why now? Why a blog? And why me?

Where did I get my motivation for this blog? Since the start of the year I decided to upload an image to my personal Instagram everyday. This was going to be a wee diary about my life that I could look back on at the end of the year. I wanted this to include all things I love, my thoughts and my experiences and so far it’s going okay.

With the Instagram daily thing I have going on, I think that this could be a great addition to this. Sure everyone has their life on the internet nowadays, right? This is going to be a more in depth daily diary almost with hopefully many posts, that will keep you interested.

My first Photo on my S7

The image above is one of the first images I took on when I got my newest phone. It’s a Samsung Galaxy s7 and I’ve had it for the best part of a year. Since I was just checking out the camera I thought the above image was appropriate for this post!
