I love finding new music and I CAN’T WAIT for Lorde’s new album Melodrama to come out on June 16th. Definitely going to buy that ASAP!
Another musician who I have been loving -which surprised me immensely- is Harry Styles. I was never really a One Direction fan. I knew the popular songs but to be honest it wasn’t really my cup of tea. But Harry’s solo album has quite literally blown me away. I think it sounds like a mash-up of U2, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. I give it an 7/10. His song Kiwi (which features in my playlist) is my favourite at the moment and I would rate that a 10/10, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
