Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first! Today we look at the debut album by Louis Tomlinson – Walls
Kill My Mind
Right from the start this song sounds like it was influenced by Oasis and I had to double check that this was made by a One Directioner. It is softer then an indie track and has elements of pop to it but it is very catchy with poetic lyrics. It is a good song to start the album with as it is catchy and really shows that this is a new chapter for the singer. I will say the part where the song goes to an alternative bridge again has musical echoes of Oasis.
We Made It
It feels like the common theme on this album is a real focus on the lyrics, they are both narrative and slightly Poetic. This song is more pop then the precious but it still has elements of an indie style and whilst it is now a style I would of put with Louis it suits him very well. This song does have a repetitive sound to it which I am not sure if I am a fan but it suits his style and voice.
The guitars really remind me of winder wall at the top, I don’t mean to keep comparing it to oasis but you can hear the influences so much. This has a real britpop vibe to it which hints a sense of nostalgia whilst also bringing his own stylings to it. This song I think is one of the highlights of the album as it is a nice song and you can feel the emotion that is punched through every word.
This song has a much more poppy style to it and if this sort of song appeared on a One Direction album it wouldn’t feel out of place. It has a jolly guitar jingle throughout it that makes it pleasant to listen to. The chorus ends which a big punch of backing singers and guitar rifts that make it an uplifting song.
