I need music. But it’s not because I need noise or need distraction — I actually have a need for music in my life. It’s the key to my sanity, and a single track can make my day — or put me in a weird mood. I have a pretty varied taste in music, and I pretty much dump everything I like into playlists based off of my mood and not by genre. If I’m ready for a change mid-song, I can just hit the “Next” button.
I have some pretty awesome news: I pretty much just hit the “Next” button in LIFE. I just moved into a different apartment a week ago, which I guess is pretty cool, but the biggest change I made is that I got married over the weekend.
Gearing up for the move/wedding was pretty intense. There was a couple of times I will admit that I “lost my chill.” Of course, my “Chill Out” playlist was there for me. The most recent addition to my playlist was Just Breathe by Beast Còast (not to be confused with Best Coast, or the Beast Coast movement…both of those are definitely different).
The little I do know about Beast Còast is that it’s one person from Rochester (probably the reason for the name) they have another song out, and they’re about to release another song in the next week or so. Oh, and their music is kind of electronic/chillwave. If you’ve read any of my previous posts, you probably know I’m a big fan of synthesizers and electropop. If you don’t know, chillwave is a very minimalist genre — usually no lyrics, but lots of loops, samples, and effects. It’s very ambient. Some would say…chill. There’s beauty in the simplicity of their music and their social media presence. No hype or noise…just dropping tracks.
I’m excited to see what the future brings. I guess that’s a good reason to follow someone that is “In the learning process” (as it says on their SoundCloud). Heck, that’s a reason to follow any musician. Musicians have lives — they learn, explore, and change just like the rest of us.
