Three albums that scream fall

By Jamie Santarella

There are certain songs and/or albums that are perfect for a particular season. Chance the Rapper’s, Coloring Book fits summer just right, while winter and The 1975’s I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it is a match made in heaven. The criteria for a song and/or album fitting with a season can be anything from the lyrics, rhythm, or vibe of the album to the time it was released.

Red by Taylor Swift


As my friend put it, this album invented fall. Each song, with its fun yet calm rhythm, makes you picture the leaves on trees changing from green to bright hues of red, orange, and yellow, while the lyrics that elude to change and growth is a feeling that I always equate to this season.

Hozier by Hozier


The subtle rock ‘n roll and the alternative sound of this album make it perfect for fall. The release date, September 2014, may also be a reason why I think “autumn” while listening to it; I have a vivid memory of first hearing this album as the air turned crisp.

Pure Heroine by Lorde


The song “400 Lux ” that is featured on this album by Lorde has a lyric about the weather getting colder and turning the heat on, which only means she meant this album to be for autumn. The vibe that the album gives off is cool mixed with nostalgia and that’s how night drives during October make me feel.
