Kodaline – Ready to Change

On Friday, the 13th Kodaline released new music video, the first single from their new EP I Wouldn’t Be. You can find it on Spotify and iTunes.

Ready to Change is lyrically a bittersweet song, with a pretty clear chorus.

You can stand on the edge shouting out that you’re ready to change
You can say what you want
You won’t jump, you’re not ready to change, ready to change

The music video is perfectly paired with the lyrics. It tells a story of a Zoo worker, who’s afraid of talking to humans, connecting with animals instead. He ends up being a love interest of a new co-worker. Four-minute-video is filled with adorable animals, a love triangle and heartwarming ending, as we learn, no matter who you are and how hard it is to connect, we all can be happy, if we want it bad enough.

The video was shot entirely in Fota Wildlife Park in Cork, Ireland, featuring not only the animal residents, but also staff members as extras. The location fees were donated to Red Panda Forest Guardian Project in Nepal.

The Cab “Lock me up”

 

Just after 4 days, since fans of The Cab had to say goodbye to Alex Marshall (he made a statement about leaving on bands official facebook page), musicians released new material. And it’s not just a free song, but whole new EP called “Lock me up”.

It contains five songs, that not accidentally tell a story of love. (How much can you tell in five songs, you ask? Well, see for yourself.)

On the EP you’ll find:

1. Lock me up

It always starts with flirtation we all enjoy. Innocent and funny chats, smiles, kisses… Yeah, we all know it.

2. Moon

We leave the phase of innocent flirting, being in a perfect relationship, where nothing can destroy you.

3. Numbers

My whole life, I’ve been waiting; never found a love like you” – is there really a need to say, what this song’s about?

4. Stand up

Our relationship hits the rock bottom, we realize it’s not that perfect anymore and decide to go away.

5. These are the lies

The hardest part for everyone is to heal and let go. The last part is basically showing, we’ve moved on, but deep inside we’re still thinking of our ex. “I don’t think about you”, “I’m fine without you” and all bunch of other crappy lies we’re selling ourselves are a great picture of our post-breakup image.

And here on buzznet you can find a great only GIF review of “Lock me up” made by Keltie Knight.

I like records, that are consistent and have a certain background, songs built a story, you can relate to. And this EP is definitely one of those records. I can’t stop listening to it and wait for the whole album, which, according to guys, should be released this summer.

You can hear the EP on spotify and buy it on iTunes.
