Music Monday #2 | Bridgit Mendler

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni and today I'll be participating in my second Music Monday post! Music Monday is hosted by my good friend Lauren @ Always Me. I've always wanted to participate for a while and I finally am! 

Here are the rules:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you've been enjoying lately.  It doesn't have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites - just something you'd like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

This month I decided to showcase some Bridgit Mendler! In 2016 she released an EP called  Nemesis. You might have heard her music around 2012 when she released her album Hello My Name Is... I didn't really like this album that much; it's very much cookie cutter pop music. However, her newest EP isn't cookie cutter at all. It's still pop, but definitely is more..funky? I guess that is the right word. The EP is pretty bittersweet; it's all inspired by her breakup with her boyfriend of four or so years and you can feel her genuine emotion through her songs.

The EP is only four songs long, and I love all of them. However, my two favorites have to be Do You Miss Me At All? and Atlantis. However, Library and Snap My Fingers are jams as well.

Here's Do You Miss Me At All?

And here's Atlantis! Warning, the music video is pretty weird. :)

Have you heard Mendler's new EP or her earlier music? 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!

  1. Stupid person question - what's EP? Is that something I should know? I feel old, LOL. I'd not heard of Mendler! I like pop but bittersweet music, eeeee. Not usually for me. :D I'm glad you enjoy her albums, Genni!

    Happy New Year. =)

    1. Basically, and EP stands for extended play. An album is the same as an LP, and an EP is like a mini version of one. :) Thanks Alyssa! We all have different tastes!

      You too!

  2. I have never heard of her before, she has an interesting sound that I don't think I've heard much of.

    1. That's what really drew me in! I kept listening because it was so different from what I normally listen to. :) Thanks for visiting Marie!

  3. Thanks for linking up, Genni! I've never heard of Bridgit Mendler before, but I really like the sound of Atlantis especially. It's quite hypnotic... the video is pretty weird though. Was that guy supposed to be dead, "asleep with the fishes" - right up until the end or whatever?

    1. Of course Lauren! Yes! Hypnotic is the perfect word. The way I interpreted it is that he wasn't putting anything into the relationship and was just asleep the whole time. And throughout all of that she was putting in all this effort to make their relationship seem picture perfect. That's at least where I got from it! :D But it is all up to interpretation!
