The Midweek Mix – 06/05/15

I am constantly abstracting random lyrics and putting my own meaning on them, often completely out of context of the rest of the song. This week’s midweek mix is a selection of five songs that, to me, somehow relate to change, whether it’s about a fear of change or an inspiration for change.

Swim Deep – One Great Song and I Could Change the World

This new single from Swim Deep suggests a new direction for them. I wasn’t sold on it immediately, but it has grown on me. Less chipper, more intergalactic.

Slow Club – Suffering You, Suffering Me

Sheffield-based Slow Club asking what the future holds for a relationship. Will we persevere, or will we move on?

Or will we stay forever, neither of us feeling better?
Do I find something new, or keep suffering you?

Noah and the Whale – L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.

A classic from Noah and the Whale, reminding us that whatever happens, life goes on.

Lorde – Ribs (Live on Letterman)

This is possibly my favourite album track from Lorde’s debut. Her whole album encapsulates the feeling of being a teenager so well, but this song in particular really captures the fear of growing up, gaining responsibilities and losing who you are.

I want it back (I want it back)
The minds we had (the minds we had).

Wolf Alice – Blush

This song has unexpectedly become one that motivates me and keeps my head up. A reminder that we can be what we want to be and do what we want to do.

Don’t chicken out, it’s all good
You’re allowed to be what you could.
