What I'm Listening To... (27/07/16)

1. Tapestry - Liv Dawson
I'm not sure how I came across this song, whether it was on a Spotify playlist, if it was sent to me via a friend, if it popped up as a suggestion on YouTube or what, but now that I've heard it once, I can't stop listening to it. I can't quite pinpoint why I love this song so much, I don't know if it's the lyrics, the steady beat backing the wonderful melody and vocals, or the gleaming guitar and piano piecing the song together but whatever it is, it's got stuck in my head and broken my replay button. 

2. White Flag - Joseph
Barn on the Farm at the start of the month introduced to me to Joseph and their live set. I'd heard one song of Joseph's before I went to the festival and knew there was a lot of hype about them, so made sure that I got to see them, and was left with goosebumps and a tear in my eye. Their set was phenomenal, tight harmonies and an incredible stage presence and performance bringing their powerful folk infused songs together will stay with me for a long time into the future. This is my current favourite of their songs and is taken from their second album, which is set to be released at the end of next month. 

3. Say What You Wanna Say - Tom Gortler
Tom performed at one of our garden gigs over the summer, and he created quite a buzz. He's a talented singer/songwriter and has a wonderful tone and presents his songs fantastically. Tom's an exciting local act to be watching for the future, he's also performing at Always The Sun Festival and we're hoping to work with him on future releases and events too...

4. Lost Boy - Ruth B
I came across this a month or so ago and fell in love with the narrative of the song and consequently listened to it many times and ended up with it stuck in my head. It's a wonderfully enchanting song, and Ruth B is one talented singer/songwriter! I'm excited to listen to her debut EP 'The Intro' as soon as I get a chance to!

5. Shake Shake - Rews
When this song appeared in my inbox a while back, I knew it was going to end up on my iPod and on repeat over the summer. I've already lost count of how many times I've listened to this song, or how many times it's been stuck in my head, I'm a really big fan of Rews' sound and can't wait to hear more from them. If you like PVRIS, you're bound to love them, and if you're a fan of alternative rock, you'll be tapping and singing along in no time!

6. fallingforyou - The 1975
Since their new album was released, I've been revisiting their music and this is one my go-tos from their debut album. It has always been one of my favourites by The 1975 and after a couple of years listening to it and seeing it live, I still haven't got sick of it...

7. Landslide - Oh Wonder
I'm honestly surprised I haven't mentioned Oh Wonder more than what I have already on this blog, seeing them live at Barn on the Farm rekindled my love for them (and it blew me away a little too). Lyrically, they give me goosebumps and musically, I just get a little lost. This is my current favourite from their debut album, closely followed by 'White Blood'.

8. Howling - Ry X
I received Ry X's debut album on vinyl for my birthday, and already it's got a fair few spins. Whilst previously I loved 'Berlin' and 'Sweat' and those were easily my favourite, stand out tracks from the release, having listened to the album through, I'm a big fan of this track too now (as well as all the other songs on the album). Easily my favourite artist at the minute and this is one of my favourite releases of 2016 so far for sure!

9. Here It Goes Again - OK Go
I've also been revisiting my old indie playlists from a few years ago, amongst the obvious, Little Comets, The Wombats, and The Kooks, was Ok Go. I love their clever music videos that accompany their fantastic, upbeat pop songs. Yes, they're the guys that danced on the running machines... 

10. What's It Gonna Be? (Live) - Shura
I've been really enjoying Shura's album and this is a fantastic live performance for Sofar London. Shura has a real talent for moulding her songs to the situation and that's apparent with this stripped back version which is a complete alternative version to the otherwise upbeat and catchy single. It's chilled out and perfect for summer evenings. 

Thanks for reading!
