Top 15 of 2015: No 01- Twenty One Pilots ‘Blurryface’

Blurryface_by_Twenty_One_Pilots

Twenty One Pilots released their second (excluding two self releases) studio album ‘Blurryface’ on May 19th via Fueled By Ramen. The band ended up releasing it a few days early though, and the response was it debuting at number 1 on the Billboard top 200, and made it into the Top 20 in the Irish charts.

It is a delicacy of a huge array of genres; the lads have pushed the boundaries of music and created something fresh and exciting. The name ‘blurryface’ comes from the personification of singer/piano/ukuleleist Tyler Joseph’s insecurities and anxieties; its use results in an honest and open collection of thoughts.

The first single they released was Fairly Local, accompanied by a kick ass video by Reel Bear Media (check out this article on why we’re digging his work). This song seems somewhat like an ode to the fans, who are even directly mentioned ‘even if the clique were to pick and the people were to vote its the few, the proud, the emotional‘ (their fanbase call themselves the Skeleton Clique).

This album doesnt stick to one sound, it flits all over the place in a good way; there’s electro, pop rock, ukulele, rap, slow piano, there’s everything. The drumming is impeccable, and the lyrics are deep and meaningful.  It’s interesting, exciting, and original. Click here for our full review on the album.

Get it here, on itunes, or stream it over on spotify. Stay Strong, Live On, and Power To The Local Dreamer |-/
