New Releases

Although I’m a self proclaimed music enthusiast, it’s been a while since I had the time to browse new music (or simply listening to music!). Sad, I know. It’s been also a while since I update my playlists. Anyway with the help of Spotify, I have been listening to more music lately (YAY!). And here are my the current new and upcoming releases that got me excited:

1. Passion Pit – Kindred
Their music have been one of my favourites since day one and I’m so excited when I found out that not only they have a new album but they’re also coming to Jakarta! Have a listen to their first single “Lifted Up (1985)” here:

2. Of Monsters and Men – Beneath The Skin
You might be familiar with them because of the movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”. This Scandinavian band is one of the few who have distinctive music and I’ve been waiting for their second album for awhile now. I instantly fell in love with their first single “Crystals” and I even like their second single “I of the Storm” better! Can’t wait to hear the whole album, it is out next month – 9 June.

3. Years & Years – Communion 
Although they have been active since 2010, this London-based electronica duo is new to me. I first heard their song “King” which was played often on the radio while I was in LA. When I reach home, I listened to their other singles and fell in love as well! Their songs are so enjoyable and danceable!

4. James Bay – Chaos and The Calm
Another one from the UK – James Bay is a recent discovery as well. His debut album has been released in March and although I haven’t heard all the songs, I have two favorites already. Have a listen to my most favorite “Hold Back The River“, which has been my companion at work the past days.

5. Tame Impala – Currents
The new album by this Perth based band will be released 17 July. I was lucky to be able to see them live at Coachella last month. Not only they performed some of their popular songs, they also performed “Let it Happen” from the new album. Wooohoo! But today I heard another song from the upcoming album; “Eventually”. The song is great, but it is also deep. It’s about a difficult separation and I wish I would never be in the position. Have a listen below:

What song(s) do you like to play nowadays? any upcoming releases that you are excitedly waiting for?
