Write Short Wednesday - Everything Else

Everything Else


When you had me at love
I held onto your chest
as though you would fall apart if I left.


The ice came just to thaw,
the seasons came like before.
And I forgot about everything else.

Share New Sunsets


Hold on. Wait up.
Just one more moment.
Let me pack later
and we'll watch another
sunset.
I've lost count of just
how many we've seen.
But I want someone new
to share new sunsets with.

So You Won't Be Alone


I know that I am not in the place
that you need me to be -
willing to give it all up for you,
just so you won't be alone.
But what can you really offer me?
Nothing that I need.
You know this as much as I.

Over 50 metres Out


From over 50 metres out
he kicks three goals.
As do two others.
I listen via the match centre
and sing along to our team's song -
wishing I was there.

 

THIS is what I'm talking about:

What More Do We Need?


The Boulder bubble is enthralling to me.
Let it wrap its leafy
branches and completely
engulf me.
Tell me,
what more do we need?

Music Monday - The 1975
Monday, 28 July 2014 10:05

In two sleeps time, I'm off to Sydney for the Sydney Vegan Expo on Sunday and to see one of my favourite bands, The 1975 at the (sold-out) Enmore Wednesday night.

the1975_-_TMU

I first discovered The 1975 when I found a wonderful article by Brad Nelson on my favourite band Haim (see last week's Music Monday) and The 1975 - especially in regards to their percussive sounds and their 80s influences.

I first saw and heard their song, Sex (EP version) and I was hooked:

I immersed myself in all of their wonderfully shot black and white visual representations of their songs, including Chocolate:

and The City:

Then this black and white world was turned upside down with the wonderfully colourful pop of Girls:

I love this song and the video - it's very tongue-in-cheek and such a contrast to their previous visuals.

As well as listening to Haim pretty much everyday, I do the same with The 1975. If you know any music that's similar to these bands, please let me know!

It's not just the 80s-influences and percussive sound of The 1975 that I adore, it's also their whole marketing. Their Tumblr-style website, their arty/B&W photos and videos, their posting style etc.

This year they once again, released some new black and white music videos. Starting with another favourite, Settle Down:

Followed up a few months ago, with the full colour, Bonnie and Clyde styled, Robbers:

These guys from Manchester, UK are quite well known back in their home country, but only now are more people knowing of them, especially in Australia.

I really hope you have discovered some new music and I hope you love this band as much as I do. Can't wait for the show Wednesday night!
