I really enjoyed writing the last post for my new monthly music feature, so here is this months musical selection! Its very chilled, so if you need de-stressing before going back to college or uni, these are the tunes for you!
number one: Daughter 'Medicine' Daughter came to my attention due to the wonderful youtube channel watchlistentell, if you like this then check out some of their other videos, the video of Peggy Sue singing 'The Sea, The Sea' is one of my favourites. If I can to compare twenty-one year old Enya Tonra, the captivating vocalist and multi-instrumentalist in Daughter, with another artist, I'd say she Florence Welch... but on a black and white television with the volume turned down!
number two: Delilah 'Shades of Grey' this new release from the beautiful brunette is different from her previous spine tingling singles, such as Breathe, as it has a lot more of a poppy feel to it! Topshop have a nice feature on their site at the moment where you can shop Delilah's look and read an interview as well :)
number three: The XX 'Angels' This is the first single from the long awaited new album 'co-exist' which was released yesterday. Me and my boyfriend, listened to their last album all the time and we loved it! This song is gorgeous and mellow with such a catchy, if a little dirge-y, hook which typical of them. If I were to make a criticism it is that, while I do love it, this song doesn't move away from their debut album at all, in fact when I first heard it I didn't even realise it was new! It would be nice to see them try slightly different styles, though we'll have to see what the new album is like!
number four: Julio Bashmore 'Au Seve' Can't really say much on this other than tell you that it was the tune of the summer. OH BABY!
Which tunes have you been listening to this summer? Are you looking forward to seeing anyone live this year?
