Summer Playlist

Summer Playlist

My life is filled with music and I rarely go a day without it, whether that's watching it live, listening on Spotify, or popping a new vinyl on my turntable for a spin. My last playlist was February (but in my defense!!), my life has been so busy since, what with graduating, studying, working part-time, holidaying, and much more in between! Instead of a monthly playlist, I've put together a compilation of songs that have shaped the past 6 months and in particular my summer, which seems to have all flown past in a blur... I might not have had the time to sit down and write about it, but music has played (excuse the pun) a big part in 2017 so far. 

I've not been able to stop listening to Confidence Man, a two-piece band stemming from Oz with their banger of a track 'Boyfriend' - seriously, go and listen to it, and I dare you not to feel an urge to DANCE! I haven't been picking up much vinyl lately (moneys) but nabbed a vintage 'ole Madonna 'True blue' record with all the 80s pop dance vibes. I also had the pleasure (second time) of seeing TOPS in Manchester. Their new album 'Sugar at the gate' has been on repeat lately with my favorites being 'Petals' and 'Dayglow bimbo'. A perfect slow, moody but poppy summer album. Lastly, I had the once in a lifetime experience of seeing Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys perform his legendary album Pet Sounds in Liverpool last month. It was truly magical and perfect in every way, and naturally, it's made me want to listen to that timeless album even more...because there really is no other record that suits a summery day than something by The Beach Boys, riiiiiight?
