Music Monday — February ’16

Happy Music Monday, y’all ❤ But more importantly… happy leap day!

I figured I’d hold off on the monthly playlist to make it a little more fun, yknow, being leap day and all.

This month’s playlist is super personal, without the intention of making it such. A.k.a every song this time around really means something to me. So I definitely hope you all can relate and take something away from it.

AND ALSO, this month’s featured artist? None other than LANY.

Not really sure how I came across this incredible group, but I’m sure glad I did. If I had to describe them, I’d say they’re the love baby of The Neighbourhood and The 1975. Their synth pop sound is great, but I especially love the acoustic stuff they’ve put out – note the stripped version of ILYSB in this month’s playlist.

The lead singer, Paul Jason Klein, I’ve noticed is very involved with his fans and continues to put a personal touch on the way he interacts with them. I’ve seen free, signed posters and signed mixed tapes all around his Twitter and I can’t help but admire and respect someone who cares so deeply for those who support him.

The music is great, the people are cool, and everything is a little bit better when they’re playing. My only complaint is that I can’t purchase their EP on vinyl yet. Good luck, my boys.

Listen to ILYSB live here.
