Song of the Week#1-Say Hello by Alexander (The Bonus Edition)

song of the weekA few months ago, I just randomly stopped posting “Song of the Day” mostly because it became difficult to find good, free music for every even day. So, instead of doing a daily meme for songs, I’ve decided to start doing a weekly meme that’s for the most part the same except each week there will be a different ‘edition’ and not every other week will have a free download. But to start off this new Song Of The Week, do have a free download for you guys!

Alexander (Uk) - Say Hello Single ArtworkHailing from Newcastle, Indie Rock 4 piece ‘Alexander’ are releasing their debut album ‘Say Hello’ in early 2013 on I Am Mighty Records. The band have been creating a buzz across the UK already. The first single ‘You Lost Youself’ taken from the record is out now, with a beautiful acoustic version of the song as a B-side. Taking influence from the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Futures and Two Door Cinema Club, ‘Alexander’ are bringing a punchy and appealing sound to the indie UK music scene.

A few months ago, I reviewed this album and I really liked it. Alexander has finally gotten a music video out for their song, Say Hello and the music video is awesome. 

“The song is about getting away from something that is really dragging you down, finding something fresh and just feeling great, even if it’s just for a week. The video is about being open and just smiling at people saying hello, it’s a message for people to just let everything go and be happy and open. The star signs which are featured on the bottom of each sign, are a symbol of who we are and it’s metaphor to show we are opening up to people”-From the band.

My favourite part is:

I never thought that for a moment that I could believe
There is a better way out for me
Yet the best thing about this
Is that there’s nothing to breathe down my neck
While I’m trying trying, to figure my head out

Song Of The Day#28-Make A Beast Of Myself By Twin Atlantic

I first listened to Twin Atlantic while playing their song Human After All on Tap Tap revenge 3. I liked that song so much that I bought it the next day on Itunes. When I went to see You Me At Six and The Swellers live, We Are The Ocean and Twin Atlantic were opening for them. Sam was just funny and got the crowd really hyped. I instantly fell in love with Make A Beast Of Myself and Free. This version of Make A Beast Of Myself is a live one.

Twin Atlantic is a rock band from Glasgow, Scotland. They are a four-man band that have been playing music since 2007. They have two albums-Vivarium and Free and three EPs- Where IS Light? Where Is Laughter?, Human After All, and Time For You To Stand Up. Make A Beast Of Myself is off of their second album, Free.

Make A Beast Of Myself is a song about being embarrassed in front of a crowed and trying to laugh it off but failing miserably.

My favourite part is:

I wanted to laugh it off
And I want to forget that I got caught
And I wanted to laugh it off
Make a beast of myself just to kill them all
