Soundtrack Of The Youth
23 year old girl from Norway. Passionate about listening, sharing and talking about music. I like to keep myself updated on new songs, especially within indie and electronica.
My taste in music is pretty laid-back, I love songs that I can listen to in any occasion, songs that are chill, but mind-blowing at the same time. We live in an amazing era of music, there is so much to explored and enjoyed!
I like to make long playlists that function as a kind of soundtrack in my life, so that I can listen to songs that truly define the present, and that at a later point, those same songs will remind me of memories, moods and feelings from the past. I love the idea that music can define a certain time in life, just like a soundtrack.
Thought I’d share a couple of chill tracks on this mellow, relaxing sunday.
Secondly I wanted to share the collaboration between Dillon Francis and the English artist Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (yes, that’s actually his artist name), and their song called Without You.
Have a nice sunday!
If you’ve read the title and you’re still unsure about who I am talking about: I now present to you Matt Corby. He is your average girl’s big crush, and I actually believe there are also some guys who have kind of a mancrush on him (which is completely okay, understandable in fact). He is insanely talented as a writer, singer and musician. He has an incredible ability in his voice to go from low to high tones, and he has a sort of Jeff Buckley feel in his music. Being born just outside of Sydney, he first became famous after appearing on Australian Idol in 2007 (I know, lame) where he made second place, though he definitely was the contestant with the biggest female fanbase.. Although Matt Corby has been a known name back in the land down under since Idol, he has had quite a long and rough path to get to where he is today. In the past year or two he has had an enormous international breakthrough, and he is now touring with his latest EP called Resolution. This guy has stardom written all over him. He is one of my absolute favorite artists at the moment.
Be sure to check out the acoustic versions of his songs Souls A’Fire and Brother in the Youtube clips below! You can find more of his music on his Soundcloud profile or on Spotify. And, as pretty much goes without saying, you will hear a lot more from this artist in the coming months on this blog!
