Take me to church

As another day pases where my sorry arse doesn’t do enough revision, I find myself on tumblr scrolling until I literally lose the previous meaning of my life. Now as pathetic as this sounds, tumblr isn’t actually frying my brain but opening me up to things I would never previously know

If pictures are the heart and soul of tumblr, then music is the brain – audio tracks pop up seemingly out of nowhere and make you think about how one song could possibly explain your life as much as that one just did

Ok, I need to stop rambling. As you may have guessed by the title of this post, today’s music blog is going to based on Hozier!

Released in 2013 (before you question the lateness of this, read the whole post) and going to #2 on the Billboard 100 in Dec 2014, Take Me to Church was a hit-single. Its the type of song you feel in your whole body and as soon as you manage to make out all the lyrics – which may take a while, you sing along with as much power from your lungs as possible.

Now, back to tumblr, about a week ago I found this http://bit.ly/1BD18MZ and absolutely fell in love. As amazing as the original song is, this haunting melody is enhanced by the changing of gender. I listened to this on repeat for about 5 hours and I suggest you all do the same.

I’d of course heard the original on the radio well before I found this life changing post, but never thought to explore the artist and listen to Hozier’s self-titled album. Upon doing so realised that ‘Take Me to Church’ was undoubtedly the best choice for a single. The rest of the amazing album doesn’t showcase songs as powerful as the leading track, but is still beautiful.

My personal favourites being ‘Jackie and Wilson’, followed by ‘Cherry Wine – Live’. Two amazing tracks; each entirely different from the each other, yet I can still imagine them both contributing to the aforementioned soundtrack to my life

This is less of a review and more me rambling about my favourite new discoveries but all I can say is, if youre enjoying it (or at least not offing yourself), please have faith that these will get better
