The Weekly Roundup: 8 Rock Songs That Will Jump Start Your Week

The Weekly Roundup: 8 Rock Songs That Will Jump Start Your Week

Welcome to the first Weekly Roundup! I am excited to start this series on my blog.

What is “The Weekly Roundup”?

It is a bimonthly feature that will feature new songs from artists. But, each feature will have a theme to it. This week’s theme is alternative rock, so I featured artists that have new singles in alternative rock (or close to it).

All I ask you to listen to each song. And if you like a particular artist, song, or maybe all them, I ask you to follow them on social media or even Spotify. You can also leave a comment on this post, telling me what song(s) you like. You might even get an response from the artists themselves!

So, without any further ado, here are my alternative rock picks of the week!

“Color Blind” by L/zard

“Color Me Blind” is about the sobering events that can occur in people’s lives. Even when the world may carry on, the outlook on it shifts. Regret that can creep up or a loss of innocence or trust can change the way you view things. And in turn, these views can become bitter or futile.

“Kick Start Your Brain” by The Vivians

The Vivians played their final show together at Camden’s Koko, opening for punk legends New York Dolls. It’s here that the band’s three and a half year rollercoaster comes to a triumphant and fitting end. To mark the show’s 10th anniversary, they now make available two previously unreleased tracks: “Kick Start Your Brain” and “Drawn To Distraction”.

Gathering by Tillerman

This EP of five songs is a representation of classic songwriting. These songs take inspiration from the past musical greats like The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, and The Rolling Stones. These artists have something simple to offer in their music: no pretense to be anything other than who we are and our individual tastes. It is these artists who brought their own fare to the banquet: “We write music we want to hear; if it’s good enough for us then we believe it’s good enough for the next person.”

“Lasso The Stars” by Brett Copeland

After writing and recording with multiple bands in Los Angeles, Brett Coperland has taken his singing, songwriting and multi-instrumental skills to another level, and has finally embarked on his own solo career.

Coperland wrote the song “Lasso The Stars” for his wife. It’s about staying together and starting over fresh, no matter how bad things get.

“Void” by The Arthurs

“Void” is the third single for The Arthurs’s forthcoming second album (scheduled for release September 2020). The song is about loss, emptiness, and alienation.

“We’re Still Kids” by The Winters

 ‘We’re Still Kids’, is a fun, high energy song which mixes nostalgia with a recognition of our utter social incompetence as we struggle to keep on top of the mundane realities of our adult lives.

“Glorious Day” by My Wonderful Daze

The lyrics in “Glorious Days” discuss being positive about life even if everything seems to be going wrong. This song is quite funky and upbeat in comparison to the heavier songs on our debut EP Guilty Party.

My Wonderful Daze is a female-fronted rock band whose members are not afraid of standing out and making a scene. They love to test the boundaries of the ‘rock’ genre with every song unique from the last. From beautiful ballads to screaming vocals and explosive guitars, there’s always going to be at least one song to appeal to the listener.

“Don’t Let the Heavens Fall” by Jordan Red

“Don’t Let The Heavens Fall” is a mellow track, which is quite fitting for the current worldwide situation we’re in. The song and its lyrics are about how if people do not learn from the past, they are condemned to repeat it. It serves as a reminder of how good things can be and what they are throwing away.
