♡ My New Computer + Music Playlist ♡

I hope everyone is having a lovely Easter break! My really exciting news is I have a new computer: a MacBook Pro!! *gasps* 

I know it's not the newest model in the market. My dad used it.. And then my brother... And then me. But despite it's not as light or not as new, it still has all the functions and it's better than my old laptop which has lasted me six years but I've broken 4 computer keys (losing the 's' key was annoying), and it has a long uninterrupted droning noise and it randomly shuts down every now and again so I think it was finally time to let go. 

I'm really excited about this and hopefully blogging will be a lot more fun! 

And while I'm at it, I thought I'll write a music playlist. I'm going to call it Music Monday (how original haha) and I think it's going to be a compilation of my favourite songs I have been listening for that week. I know it's not Monday but this is an exception. It may be a fortnightly playlist if I don't listen to much particularly one week. So let's get started shall we? 

1. Love Letters by Metronomy 

I only discovered this band a month ago but they are absolutely amazing. They are fun, quirky and fantastically original and groovy. My favourite part of this song is when Prior belches out "Love Letters" over the strong rhymtmic synth, bass and drums in the chorus. It just sounds really fun and very catchy as well. 

2. There Is No Other Time by Klaxons

I completely forgot about their new single which actually came out in February whoops! The chrous is so catchy and it oozes with mystery through the shimmery synths. It really feels like 90s dance beat which I love but the thing that has always appeal to be from the Klaxons is their upbeat synthesized messy energy which was from their first album, think Gravity's Rainbow and Golden Skans. And unfortunately I miss that. 

3. No Diggity by Chet Faker (cover)

No Diggity by Blackstreet is classic, effortless and smooth with its soulful 90s R&B. It's one of my favourite songs of all time and then Pitch Perfect came along and I fell in love with the song even furher. But Chet Faker makes his cover his own and it's just as good as the original. It's subtlety mixed with beauty and the track is very chilled. Also the Klaxons cover of this song is pretty cool too. 

4. West Coast by Lana del Rey
I love the ethereal dreaminess of the tune and the breathy, cooing vocals from Lana in the chrous. The song is stunning, atmospheric. Lana is intriguing compared to the normal pop songs of today and I am really excited for her new album, Ultraviolence. Also Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys help produce this so yay! 

5. She's Electric by Oasis

I don't quite remember how I initially discovered the song except the fact I added it on my Spotify playlist. From the same album as Wonderwall and Don't Look Back in Anger, She's Electric is more playful, light-hearted and enjoyable. Sort of like a sing-along song. You know what I mean when you hear it.

Do you like the songs I have been listening to this week?
