One thing about me, I’m a super dorky music junk. I breathe and live for music. It’s almost impossible to find me without my earphones with me. It’s my life. Music is my therapy and it’s the color to my otherwise dull life.
I’d like to see myself as a music eclectic. I listen to all sorts, from acoustic to alternative rock to punk rock to one extreme to the next, some even so strange my friends don’t even expect it. Even EDM, yeah, name it, I love it.
I even think why don’t we have a punk rock Christmas album now? Yes? No? Okay. Never mind.
Anyway, I’ve listened to various songs lately to on Spotify, on YouTube, and on my Apple Music. One of these is the Malibu Nights.
So I am going to share with you my thoughts about this new released album of LANY.
I’m not really an expert in reviewing this one and this is my first time making an album review so I apologize if I sound strange and unnatural.
Without further ado, here are just my thoughts about LANY’S Malibu Nights Album.
“Malibu Nights” is the highly- anticipated sophomore album from indie pop trio, LANY, which was released October 5th. This is composed of nine tracks:
1). Thick and Thin
2). Taking Me Back
3). If You See Her
4). I Don’t Wanna Love You Anymore
5). Let Me Know
7.) Valentine’s Day
8). Thru These Tears
9). Malibu Nights
Paul Klein wrote these as a form of catharsis from his heartbreak.
I really don’t know how to put it into words but man, it’s so heart-wrenching. Seems like you would suddenly swept into an ocean of memories and in your surprised, tears began falling down like the pitter-patter of the rain. It gives you chill down in your spine. It gives you ten million feelings all at once. Even if you never been in love and get your heart broken or maybe have someone who breadcrumbed you still get hurt by these songs.
Just saw this on Facebook.
I felt like I wanna barge in to Paul’s house and hug him tight. So tight ‘til he feel that he’s not alone.
Heartbreaks are the ones that molds us into what we are and what we will gonna be. The pain and the experience is the one that’s going to make us stronger. Pain is not a sign of weakness. It’s a sign that you’re still alive and that you’ll still learn a lot of things. Don’t chase for something or someone that is never coming back.
What will do with a broken heart?
Just let it be. Until you yourself can fix it. You do nothing. You don’t need to push yourself hard to become okay. You just let yourself feel how broken you are. Because sometimes it’s not necessary to mend things immediately. How can you fix yourself when you’re still broken anyway? And don’t even think to jump into a new relationship right away just because you want someone to fix it for you. You’re just making it harder. So just let it be. Let yourself be broken. It’s fine to be broken sometimes, it’s fine to be not okay. But don’t let it consume you. Maybe someone will come and help you to pick up some pieces and that’s okay too. But when no one will comes in, learn to love yourself.
Over time the pain will heal and you’ll be ready to let others in and share your wonderful self with them. If they break your heart, learn, feel (because it’s important to be human), and live again. I’m a true believer in soul mates, just because one relationship didn’t click, doesn’t mean that there’s not another person waiting close by to snatch you up.
Kudos to LANY: Jake Clifford Goss and Les Priest, especially to Paul Jason Klein.
I’m not sure if you’ll like it but hope you’ll add it to your playlist.
