Tune Talk: BadLands by Halsey

Tune Talk: BadLands by Halsey

It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about music on here. Almost 9 months to be exact. It has been a bit since an entire album has caught my attention. Actually, that’s not really true. I’ve just been too lazy or busy to talk about them.

Today I’m going to get into BadLands by Halsey.  Almost a year ago I talked about Crybaby by Melanie Martinez and BadLands was recommended to me. Halsey also constantly came up as a recommended artist for me because I liked Melanie Martinez. Well, it took me long enough but I finally got it. I think I realized I would probably like her when I found out she was the one who sings “Castle” which I hear a lot in fantasy like commercials.

I got her album this week and I cannot get enough. I’m the type of person who will play an album over and over until I’m sick of it. Because I’m the worst. Seriously, why do I do this to myself?

But okay. I’m really into this. I really like the catchy sort of pop feel, all the while the lyrics are edgy. It’s the same sort of thing I liked about Melanie Martinez except that she has a more cutesy musicbox sound while Halsey’s songs sound like they could be something fun and upbeat that you could dance to.

This is definitely an album I can let play from start to finish. I think the only one I’m not into is “Walk the Line.”  My favorites are “Strange Love” and “Gasoline.”

She has a Vevo so I’ll leave this here.

I’m really bad at this whole review thing.  But check her out because I seriously can’t stop listening to her!  I’ve been doing a ton of beauty blogs lately so I’d love to keep talking about music if you’re interested in it. I can talk about Babymetal or Walk the Moon, who I’ve been also finding myself playing a lot of lately. I could also share what’s on certain playlists I’ve made.

I’m up for whatever. I’m really trying to write more often.
