It’s 2020, if you haven’t noticed yet and what better way to kick off new year and new decade by writing a totally cliche decade wrap-up post. I know, what you’re all thinking, another one of those weird posts, filled with Spotify links and playlists. I did consider it for a while and then it hit me. I wanted to do something different, reaching the depths of my memory, focusing on the albums that kind of shaped each year of the last decade for me. It doesn’t mean I only listen to one album the whole year, I’m not a freak, but those are just he reminders of how I felt back then.

I could explain, why each and every album I’ve listed is still very close to my heart, but we would be here until next year, trust me. If you fancy, take a listen, all of the listed albums hold a special place in my heart. And if you fancy sharing your own list, just let me know.
Royal Blood released a new video for How Did We Get So Dark almost 2 days ago, with 146 689 views so far, which their started teasing a week before the premiere, with short videos and missing/wanted/join us posters:
It is a perfect combination of dark, melodic, fluffy and straight fucked up. Truly Royal Blood. It’s full of white rabbits, not falling off the speeding cars, nor getting killed by raging bullets. Check it out, it’s worth it.
After a long break I’m back, so I’ve decided to cherish this moment and write about a band, that got me at the first sight. Royal Blood. They truly are amazing. For all of you, who does not yet know them, well, listen to their work. It’s priceless. A masterpiece. I could talk about how much I love their debut record days, even months without a break.
It all started when I first saw “Little Monster” on MTV Rocks. It immediately caught eye, a simple video and such catchy song. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not one of those songs you hear once and than can’t get them out of your head for days, hating them more and more every minute. No, “Little Monster” is one of those songs you can’t get enough of.
Than I got my hands on the whole record and I fell in love once again. It’s the first time I actually AM in love with the whole album, without an exception. That’s why I’ve decided buy myself a ticket and see Royal Blood live. Let me tell you something. I am not surprised they got 3 nominations for Brit Awards. I am still a bit lost in the reality after the concert. And a bit upset I can’t see them everyday. It was really special. And I once again fell in love with this amazing band.
I leave you with some samples, but make sure, you check their album. Enjoy.
