#Music Monday That’s the hashtag I’ve been using for quite some time to share music recommendations from artists. Always fresh, and always different, they try to look for trends before they become one. You can check July review For more music.
Summer is officially over, so we move on with new tracks showing inspiration as the theme for this month. Let’s listen, with a word from the artists themselves. 3
Young Billy Goat – 33 HUNNID
I don’t want to play
I need you to stay away
Don’t call me
Kobe Bryant Fed Away
Personal experience can drive a really good track, and Goat From Los Angeles, CA gives us a good example with its new track:
“I was inspired by my ex-girlfriend, she was toxic, and she kept trying to come back because she knew I was in love with her. She tried to manipulate me for money.”

Reckless Journalist – Was It Valuable?
I want to write a love song
But I don’t know where to start
Where my heart is
It’s not just where the past is
These are all endless roads
On a depressing island
And knows the traffic
They have lost all their excitement
What was it worth?
When it comes to inspiration, this London, England based post punk band shows us that sometimes when you try to write a love song, something else can come out of it. What was it worth? Absolutely:
“It’s a disillusionment with London. It’s falling in love with him but getting tired of him, like an old friend you’re probably separating from him but still have affection for you because they were by your side for a couple of hours.”

Canada – nothing big
My world is black and white
As we rot from the inside
I lost everything in the fire
The mind opened
Turning out of control
It blows me away
Nothing big to say
Being in a band can certainly be a challenge, but a source of inspiration for great music, as this Oxford Alt Rock Quartet delivers:
“I think the theme of the song is to have a desire to go to a certain place in your life but fail to get there. Frustration, obsession, frustration of not being able to accept some things is the same. Giving something a lot and getting very little back. It’s basically in a band. Based on the experience of being there. The endless climbing struggle to notice. Hahaha what’s in anything. “

Honey Motel – Milk and honey
So keep driving,
On milk and honey,
And we will keep coming.
Fluorescent girls, turn me on
Starting from feeling so dirty to stealing my money
They are not needed for anything.
Fluorescent girls, turn me on,
Stealing my money from feeling so dirty,
They are not needed for anything.
From London, and Oxford, we’ve now reached Liverpool for an inspirational indie rock track that won’t let us down for long:
“I think ‘Milk and Honey’ came at a time when me and the kids were feeling a bit down and out with the music industry. It’s a track about the better things in life, the good things that keep you pursuing your goals no matter what. This is why it is called ‘milk and honey.’ Don’t know if they’re there, or how far that “good place” actually is.
So I think the track tells a story of uncertainty for the future and fears about what could happen as a result. Everyone is everywhere, scared / worried about something in the future, death, love, political instability, loss. And this song tries to take that concern to a track, while also celebrating things like being grateful. Whatever it is, you have to drive, because what is the alternative? Abandoned? “

Hello Gorgeous – Dear Amy
Dear Amy, you took my heart and held my hand
It showed me a world without logic
But I knew very little
That it was part of your MO
For quite some time our hearts were elsewhere
You need to know that we have done our best before
Here we are with one foot outside the door
We all have our own Emmy and this pop punk track coming from LinkPing in Sweden is a great way to send us Last kiss for the road:
“The inspiration for the song is a reflection of my past relationship. The name Amir means, was chosen because of the beloved. So the song can be” favorite favorite “and can be applied to anyone. The writing process started with the guitar riff and there I wanted to try to write a chorus that doesn’t always use the same germ so I ended up changing every line of the chorus which is a bit unusual for me. It came together when we could all take our own turn in it. “

Elliott Ash – Volcano
Now I’m just a boy with thorns on his side
Bleeding from each wound while I tried to survive
So I hope you can show the way
Or light the way tonight so I don’t ricochet
But why can’t they leave me?
Let me feel clear, oh please let me breathe
For the last track this month, we head back to London for some of the highest refuge. The kind of germs that can go on day after day and lose our marble:
“I wanted to create a track that was just offensive and in your face. It all originated from the bash reef that I layered it about 20 times so that it was really wide and distorted. Lyricist I wanted to talk about mental health stigma and how. Society likes to put everyone in a box to define it. I wanted to write a track that would make a huge impression to play live! “
