My August Music Hunt
Start writing a post

With a July full of new albums and singles, August did not have that many releases. With the lack of releases, I spent a lot of the month researching new music, especially smaller alternative rock bands. I was able to find a lot of up and coming British bands through my Spotify research.

M60, Lostboy, and Riscas are three of the British bands I am very excited to introduce to new fans. Read the listicle below to learn and listen to these artists.

The Rolling Stones - 'Scarlet'

The Rolling Stones and Jimmy Page released an unreleased song from the '70s known as "Scarlet" this July. The band had been promoting their reissue of "Goats Head Soup," a 1973 favorite with this hidden track. The music video for "Scarlet" was released in early August, and it features Paul Mescal, an Irish actor.

Teenage Wrist - 'Silverspoon'

Teenage Wrist released their latest single "Silverspoon" after a 2019 EP and 2018 debut album release. The band has gone through quite a bit of change since their debut album release but still maintain the same sound and fanbase.


"Places" is another single that will most likely be on the band's anticipated sophomore album. The duo come back with a new song and video pleasing their fans and attracting a new audience with their frequently evolving sound.

Larkins - 'TV Dream'

"TV Dream" is not a new song for the band, Larkins, but it is one that I have recently discovered. Larkins is an alternative indie foursome from Manchester. This catchy tune is worth the listen and is the perfect upbeat song to end your summer with.

M60 - 'Honey'

M60 is another band from the United Kingdom that I discovered this month through my Spotify searches for new music. M60 is definitely an up and coming band from Manchester that you need to keep an eye out for. Some of their other songs include "I Don't Mind" and "Blindside."

Paris Youth Foundation - 'Late Night Lost Love' 

Paris Youth Fountain is another band from the United Kingdom that I found this month. "Late Night Lost Love" is one of many singles that I'd recommend listening to.

Riscas - 'Panic Like Tom'

During my search for new music, I was able to find another U.K. band called Riscas! "Panic Like Tom" is upbeat and a song you want to play over and over!

Corella - 'On Wax'

Corella released their latest single "On Wax" in late August. The single is energetic and embodies their sound as a band. If you like this song, I'd recommend listening to: "Bloom," "Barcelona Girl," or "Come Around."

The Covasettes - 'This Feeling'

The Covasettes are another British band I found through my research that I am very excited about! "This Feeling" along with many more songs have the perfect sound for the summer. I am excited to hear more from this band!

Lostboy - 'Luna'

As you might be able to tell by now, August was my month for finding new music! I found a lot of great British bands in the process, most of which are up and coming artists. Lostboy is an awesome example of an artist with a refreshing sound. "Luna" along with many other songs has a refreshing guitar sound and it leaves me wanting to hear more!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
