MY MIND MAKES NOISES


Music has always been a huge part of my life. I spend the majority of my day listening to my favourite bands and playlists. For me, music has become a way I deal with the world and my overwhelming thoughts. It can be a reminder of some of the happiest memories we might have but can also help us to cope and deal with some of the hardest times we have to go through.
I sometimes have great difficulty putting how I feel into words. I think one of the most difficult questions to be asked is - how are you feeling? I don't think I've ever been able to be 100% honest answering that question because sometimes I just don't know how to explain how I feel! Sometimes, I don't even know how I'm feeling. Have you ever listened to a song that just perfectly sums up exactly how you are feeling in a way that you could never get across in words?! Music has a power that will never feel completely magical to me. The same song can have a different meaning and mean something different to every single person that hears it. It has the power to remind us of a person or place, to help us make sense of a difficult time, to remind us to let loose and have fun, to relax and live or to escape from everything for a while and get lost in music. Music has become my greatest escape on days where my thoughts seem so loud and angry I can't handle them. Sometimes my own negative thoughts can be so overwhelming that it can be hard to listen or hear anything else and I've found the only way to drown them out is through music. Feeling trapped in a negative head space can seem so isolating and never ending because you can't escape from your own brain. Music has become the perfect comfort I have turned to and it has helped me in so many ways. 

Have you ever listened to a band or artist and just instantly fell in love with their sound and everything about them?! When I first heard Pale Waves I just, I fell so in love with their music, lyrics and the bands whole look. Heather Baron Gracie has become my ultimate goth icon and she is a goth girl after my own heart. She is just so unbelievably cool and her voice is so beautifully different, I could listen to it all day, every day. Pale Waves album My Mind Makes Noises was released yesterday and after listening to the whole thing in one sitting, I fell more in love with this band than before. The album covers so many topics - love, anxiety, youth, life and death and the whole album is a rollercoaster of emotion. The first time I heard Noises, I cried. The song is about anxiety and finding the thoughts you can have because of this overwhelming and hard to deal with and well... it hit me hard. The lyric - my mind makes noises, which is also the album name, just struck a chord with me and just perfectly sums up how I feel about my own head space. It was the most relatable song I've ever listened to and I know will always have a special place in my heart. I also love Came in Close and Loveless Girl because I have been waiting to hear these songs for so long and they are just more than I could have ever wished for!

I'm off to see Pale Waves for their in store show and signing today and I'm so happy my heart could burst! To finally get the chance to see my favourite band and hear songs that I truly love is just... a pretty insane feeling. So, what better way to celebrate the occasion than to share the insane shots Kaye (Fordtography) and I shot inside the venue! Honestly, it was a dream getting to work with Kaye and these shots are just something else! 

Let me know your fave band or song that means the world to you!
