Hello! Today I have a really exciting post to share with you all – it’s my turn on the I Was Born For This #YAPlaylist blog tour.
If you’re anything like me, music is hugely important in your day to day life, whether you’re listening to music at home, at work, in the car or on the train to work, wherever it’s hugely important. So, to celebrate the release of Alice’s fantastic new book following star band ‘The Ark,’ YA bloggers from across the internet are sharing songs that Alice has picked for the playlist that fit with the book and adding one ourselves too. So, here we go!
Alice, for my stop on the tour, has chosen Burnished Bronze by Labyrinth Ear, and here’s why!
This was one of the first songs I put in the I Was Born for This playlist! I’m not sure how closely the lyrics really relate to IWBFT, but it was the image of ‘burnished bronze’ that made me put it on the playlist. It made me think of The Ark’s beautiful life being ‘burnished’ – polished over and over so it shines – at the expense of the happiness of the band boys. Something, something, metaphor. Either way, it’s a lovely song, and the electronic vibes fit perfectly into the playlist!
So, now I think it’s my turn to share a song from a band or artist I love at the moment as well! This is especially difficult because I love a lot of music at the moment but I think I’ll stick to a favourite of a while now – Swim by Fickle Friends.
This song is a really catchy, feel good song which I heard for the first time about last year, and I remember thinking it was a great song especially for the summer. I also think the band are really underrated and if you haven’t heard of them I certainly think you should know of them! In a way, it might even remind you of the main characters from I Was Born For This as well. Take a listen and see what you think!
Thank you to Alice for stopping by today, take a listen to all the other songs from the #YAplaylist and stay tuned to find out what other songs are making their way to that playlist.
