It all started with a tweet. Specifically, a tweet off of Hayley Williams' (of Paramore fame) profile. If I remember correctly, she tweeted about being excited for a new album by a little band called Twenty One Pilots.

Fast-forward to about a month later, and a few good friends of mine recommend Twenty One Pilots to me. I then assume that if my friends like it, and one of my favorite singers likes it, it must be pretty good, right?

Y'all, I didn't know it then, but I stumbled upon a new favorite band.


"Blurryface" is twenty one pilots' newest album, which only just dropped last May. I really like some of their older stuff (specifically, tracks off their "Vessel" album), but the very first track I heard was "Tear in My Heart." After that, I was pretty much hooked.

I would say it's an alternative album, but it's not punk, and there's certainly a solid mix of rock and electronic elements. I can't pin it down to a single genre, but there's definitely something for everyone in "Blurryface."

Favorite tracks:
  • Tear in My Heart
  • Stressed Out
  • Fairly Local
  • The Judge
  • Doubt
  • Hometown
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. This album makes a fantastic working soundtrack from start to finish, and it's easy to find tracks you love out of the bunch.

Have y'all heard of Twenty One Pilots? What do you think of them? Have you discovered any new bands lately?
