Hello there you lovely lot!
Here is this weeks mixtape. I've added a couple of guilty pleasures today (in the form of The Vamps and 5SOS). I can't believe I like these songs - but they are so damn catchy!

Right, I'll say it now. The Vamps and 5 Seconds of Summer are not my thing. When I was 14-15 I would have LOVED them but now at 20 I feel like I'm a tad old. It's hard not to hate them when their songs are so catchy. I haven't really DISLIKED any songs The Vamps have released yet. They are definitely a guilty pleasure (I really wish I hadn't shared!) This track is so summery and holiday-ish and ergh...I like it okay!?

On the 5SOS note - I'm not too keen on their other stuff. I just really like this song! I reminds me (maybe a little too much) of So Much I Never Said by Artist Vs Poet and that is childhood right there. I think it's the whole nostalgia thing going on.

I'm still listening to Ed Sheeran's album on repeat (See my review here!). At the moment I'm A Mess is definitely my favourite song - his voice sounds amazing!

Periodically I listen to another song from the TFIOS sound track and I'm loving CHARLI XCX's addition. It's really different to the rest of the tracks (and she is just amazing - just saying!)

That's this week's mixtape - hope you enjoy it!

  1. Great mixtape! I am (unfortunately? Fortunately?) a sucker for the likes of The Vamps and 5SOS, and I'm way older than you, hah! I'm enjoying TFIOS soundtrack!

    1. Thank you lovely!
      I'm going to keep them as a guilty pleasure for a while. I doubt I'll ever have the confidence to actually LIKE The Vamps publicly - it just seems wrong for some reason (but so right?)

      TFIOS soundtrack is sounding pretty good - I just need to see the film now!

  2. Cool mixtape, love it! Who doesn't love The Vamps?
