Current Track Obsession 🎧 Vol. XVII

It's crazy to believe that the end of May is quickly approaching 😮 and June is right around the corner. 💗 I am definitely excited about my summer, but it's going to be a whole different life than the one I'm living now.

.

Currently, I'm living the "work from home" life which is so different for me. 🤣 I've spent the last 7 years of my life working full-time in retail management while balancing my musical theatre passion. And although I'm living a day to day that was similar to that during the beginning of the pandemic, it's a "Whole New World!" 🧞

.

My days consist of a whole lot of Instagram, (haha, imagine that) taking online classes & lessons on content creating, taking photos, editing photos, and "building my brand." This means until I return back to work (which is on and off this whole summer #musicaltheatrelife) you'll be seeing a lot of me and a lot of change and exciting projects hitting my page. ⭐

.

One thing I'm not planning on changing though is my weekly Current Track Obsession! This weekly blog and Instagram post bring me so much joy and the amount of support, love, and interest has surpassed anything I could have ever dreamed of. 🎶🎶🎶

.

So, enough about my "different" lifestyle, and let's get to these new tracks!

.

1️⃣ Everybody Feels This Way - Trella

* If you're looking for a track to become your summer hit, then look no further than "Everybody Feels This Way" by Trella! This recent release is truly about the feelings we all feel, especially in this ever-evolving world after the pandemic. Beyond its uber relatable lyrics, the sick beat is going to have you rolling down the windows and singing at the top of your lungs, the perfect summer activity.

2️⃣ Boy In My Mind - Jimmy Harvey

* I feel like I've got a little theme with "Chill" tracks this week, I think it has to do with the fact that I'm trying to "slow down" a little bit more than I'm used to. And the steady tempo, but relaxed beat mixed with Jimmy's smooth voice does it for me in this sick track "Boy In My Mind." The simple, sweet, and down to Earth chorus is by far my favorite piece in this melody.

.

3️⃣ The Fire - K I T

* Another track that needs to be on your summer playlist. This is the third release for K I T and he's a force to be reckoned with. Think of all the viral alternative tracks that have popped up in the last couple of years, pull in a little more acoustic vibes, AND a whole lot more artistic and you'll land somewhere in the vicinity of "The Fire!" So this is a two-part request, listen to this track and then keep your eyes on the rising star K I T!

.

4️⃣ Lockeland - Moody Joody

* Feel good song central. I'm in LOVE with "Lockeland" and I don't think I'll ever get sick of this beat. The vintage vibes mixed with modern vocals are a perfect combination for Moody Joody, who I now have to pay WAY more attention to. The other major win in this track is the fun lyrics that you're going to be singing along to all summer long! You won't be disappointed when you hit the play button!

5️⃣ Keep Careful - waants, Sorrey

* We're slowing things down a little. I'm not usually one to share anything you can't really dance to, but I've personally been trying to listen to songs that allow me to get out of my own head and just focus on the music. "Keep Careful" is a mellow, moody tune with interesting moments, vocals, tempos, etc. It's the kind of melody you put on while lying in your bed, staring at the ceiling. Highly recommend adding this to your chill-out playlist.
