Current Track Obsession 🎧 Vol. XI

Woah. The past 24 hours have gone by in a flash and have brought lots of excitement, butterflies, nerves, and anxiety. If you saw my Instagram stories or my Facebook status, then you already know, but... STEVEN AND I ARE FINALLY LEAVING WISCONSIN! 🥰

.

There are a lot of things and emotions happening all very quickly. 💓and I promise more about all of that soon- but for right now, I want to introduce you to the songs that are helping me dance, sing, and rock out the chaos. 🎶

.

Now, this is the second week to come out of the "Rainshower Songs ☔" hence why I had such a hard time picking just 5 tracks with all the new music I'm adding. So, I hope you're alright with 6 this week... Let's get to it!

.

1️⃣ Limbo - Glades

* Y'all don't understand how badly I've wanted to introduce you to Glades! I am a huge fan. Each time I hear a new Glades track, the timing is off for Current Track Obsession...BUT luckily they dropped "Limbo" 6 days ago and it does not disappoint! Glades does an amazing job creating catchy, yet meaningful tracks. Their mixing of instruments, tracks, and vocals keeps things lively while keeping their lyrics genuine and relatable. So, my suggestion? Listen to "Limbo," fall in love (it won't take long), then hit up their other tracks "Blonde," "Dancing In The Mirror," "Not About You." Beware you may become addicted.

2️⃣ supposed to - BLÜ EYES

* I know I say this every week, but this is your "Spring" track of the week. I love the way BLÜ EYES has collaborated a light acoustic sound with a memorable beat layered with her ethereal vocals. It's got the makings to be your go-to whatever you need it to be. Your workout/dance beat, goto sing-along, shower beat to wake up, etc. I am really happy to be following BLÜ EYES now because I'm super pumped to see what she comes out with next!

3️⃣ Gemini - Paco Versallies


* When pool parties or parties in general, are a thing again...y'all are all invited to mine and we are going to jam to this song. I can't get over the fabulous, hazy vibes Paco Versailles gives us in "Gemini." It's vintage and modern all at the same time. They've mastered a unique sound of the reemerging era trend. The use of fun vocals and harmonies intertwined with an infatuating use of instruments is mesmerizing... how could you not be obsessed?

.

4️⃣ Moonlight - Tae

* EEK! This song drives me insane with how GOOD it is. Like... this is this girl's fourth release on Spotify and she's got gold here. The musicality, the layers, the elements, the details... it's all superbly cool. This tune consistently keeps you guessing, "Where are we going next?" and as soon as you land...it's magic. Can you tell I'm obsessed, obsessed? I am so glad I stumbled upon Tae because it's only going to go up from here for her. I can't even describe this track well... I'm just rambling... just, check it out, will you?

.

5️⃣ Downtown - Maella

* As soon as I heard the pre-chorus to "Downtown" by Maella, it was instantly added to Current Track Obsession. And then, when I thought it couldn't get much better than it already was, it did. "Downtown" is the flower child of the edgy rocker chic and electronic/pop geners, and I am here for it. It's tracks like these that combined the best of worlds, make you want to dance, sing, and chicly walk down the sidewalk (or is that just me?) that make such a memorable impression on me. Maella has definitely tapped into a great sound/vibe for sure.

.

6️⃣ Dance - Foxes

* Remember when I said I needed to dance out the chaos, well, this is the song that's making that possible. "Dance" by Foxes is almost emotional for me right now. It brings up a lot of moving feelings but reminds me to be so, so excited for the adventure that awaits Steven and me. (Okay, need to stop talking about this...tearing up...) ANYWAYS, Foxes is an artist that I have been attached to for quite some time (2013 with her first release "Youth" to be exact), and she has been close to my heart this whole time. Having been part of many playlists, her songs are attached to many pivotal moments in my life.

Make her a part of your life too by checking out "Devil Side," "Glorious." Let Go For The Night," "Body Talk," and every other one of her songs. I'm excited to dig into her recent album release more very soon!

.

Okay everyone, there you have it. My 11th Volume of Current Track Obsession. I'm going to stop writing now before I get even more emotional than I have been listening to these songs...

But you know what? I'm cool with it. 😭😉

.

These are the songs that will forever be engrained in my mind as the songs I listened to when I got the thrilling news that Steven and I are ACTUALLY, FINALLY moving. 🎉🍾

.

Playing these tunes through my NEW Vizliter headphones, they are getting me through all of the feelings, goodbyes, worry, stress. And are making me focus on dancing it out, singing it out, breathing it out, and crying it out. 🥰

.

I am constantly amazed by the ability music has over our souls, our lives, our moments. I don't know about you, but some songs just hit so deep that I think that they are put into my life at that moment because I "need" them. And I needed all six of these songs (and let's be truthful, the other 73 songs 🎧 in April's Playlist) to process everything that is moving ever so quickly around me.

.

If you want some extra tracks to help bring your April to the next level remember you can always find all of my Spotify playlists by finding me, Rachel Brooks Peterson. 💓💓 While you're there click the follow button so you're up to date on the latest and greatest.

As I said, I'm going to get to telling you much more about our move soon. But for now, I'm just going to give an extra appreciation for music to help me escape, cope, and balance. 🎵

.

Have a beautiful day, weekend, month, year, life... 😘
