I had a long overdue catch up with my brother this week, which lead to him giving me song recommendations, which I hate to admit I actually loved. I also started my new job, which has been nice because it’s meant that I haven’t spent all day every day in complete isolation because I was starting to think I might go a bit crazy.
Maid of The Mist – Diet Cig
These guys give me major Tullycraft vibes and I’m not mad about it. Singer, Alex has such a sweet voice and it’s such a pretty song that’s a complete pleasure to listen to. It’s made my walks into town (even when it’s raining) much more enjoyable.
Beeping – Polish Club
This is such a cool song, and listening to it makes me feel like dancing every time without fail. For this reason, I’ve set it as my morning alarm, and I don’t hate it yet which is quite an achievement. They have a more low fi sound that is really appealing and makes for a really interesting listen.
The 411 – Bears in Trees
Ukulele music is absolutely irresistible, isn’t it? There’s fully something about it that can’t help but lift your mood. This song really makes me feel nostalgic in such a good way, even though the lyrics aren’t overly happy for the whole song, but I think the melody tricks you into thinking it’s so happy. They have such a cool sound as a band and I think they’re definitely worth a listen.
Age of Consent (New Order) – Cayetana
The kind of dreamy guitar sound on this song coupled with the vocals has a sort of contrast that really works for me. I found myself singing the chorus of this when I’d only listened to this a few times (luckily, I’m in our house alone, or I think I’d have had some serious complaints) and I actually couldn’t get it out of my head. It’s such a pretty, interesting song too.
Credit Cars and Trains – Sir Simon
This guy has such a talent, their music is awesome and I’m so here for it. The vocals are, to me, faultless and it makes for a lovely song. It’s such a sweet song and it’s such a nice listen, it flows so beautifully and I find it so calming. It’s just wonderful and I think he derives a lot more appreciation for his songs.
