Recent Albums That Will Get You Through Lockdown

The Neighbourhood – Chip Chrome & the Mono-Tones (Deluxe)

The Neighbourhood’s newest Album comes with excitement and a new image for the band.This Album is built on Rutherford’s own struggles with binge-using social media and the band’s identity. The lead singer Jesse Rutherford has been compared to having similarities of having the alter ego of Ziggy Stardust which makes the Album a whole lot more compelling (it is also worth watching the music videos). The Album has an alternative rock aesthetic which is reminiscent of the 70’s. One of my favourites ‘Stargazing’ is in my opinion one of the best songs The Neighbourhood have ever released, which is why you have to listen. The album also features other captivating songs such as ‘Devil’s Advocate’ and ‘Lost in Translation’.

Miley Cyrus – Plastic Hearts

Miley Cyrus’ newest Album is different from her usual ‘pop’ sound, it is clear she is exploring new genres and in this case it has worked in her favour. This sound really suits her voice along with genius lyrics that can be very relatable for most and also encourage female empowerment. It also features musical legends such as Stevie nicks, Joan Jett and Billy Idol. This is a fun Album which you can dance to but also get in your feels, it’s the best of both worlds really. There are iconic songs such as ‘Plastic Hearts’ and ‘Midnight Sky’.

Arctic Monkeys – Live at the Royal Albert Hall

If you are an Arctic Monkeys fan, I can guarantee this live rendition will give you joy. If you have been to an Arctic Monkeys gig it will feel very nostalgic listening to this especially during these circumstances with sadly no live music. However, this album features staple favourites such as ‘Brianstorm’ and ‘Four Out Of Five. It was recorded at the Royal Albert Hall in June 2018 (before Coronavirus existed and live music was thriving), a great thing about this live Album is the all proceeds go to War Child charity. So my advice is stick this on, wherever you are and enjoy.
