I got a sneak peek of the soon to be released debut album from The Pretty Reckless called Light Me Up. This album is fundamentally a hard hitting rock album although the softer side of rock is shown in Nothing Left To Lose and You with slower tempos and a string section.
I quite like this song The Suburbs by Arcade Fire from their third studio release also entitled The Suburbs. Are you a fan of Arcade Fire? I know they had a bit of a cult following before but I'm glad more people are hearing about them now.
