I recently updated my Spotify playlists with all my favourite tracks; both new and old. Here are some of the newest songs I’ve been loving this Autumn:
What Went Down – Foals
After seeing their surprise set at Leeds Festival, I was left asking myself why I’d never paid much attention to Foals before. They are one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen, they blew my mind! They recently released a new album called ‘What Went Down’ and the title track is definitely my favourite live and on record. I recommend that you listen to their album and watch their performance on ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ from a few weeks ago as this shows just how amazing they are when performing live.

Watch ‘Mountain At My Gates’ Here
Excuse Me , Drawing Pins, Hostage – Nothing But Thieves
Last week I got to see Nothing But Thieves live for the 6th time and I swear that they get better each time I see them. Their self-titled debut album was released on 16th October and these tracks are just a few of my favourites, there is not one song on this record I dislike! They played all three of these songs in their set last week, and they sound just as incredible live as they do on the album. I had heard Hostage live a few times before, but the studio version gives me chills every time I hear it, and new tracks ‘Excuse Me’ and ‘Drawing Pins’ are definitely my favourites lyrically.
Sorry – Justin Bieber
My best friend told me to listen to this after I admitted that I liked ‘What Do You Mean?’. I have never been a JB fan but I’ll admit that his latest songs are such jams and this is definitely my favourite out of his recent releases.
Bros, You’re A Germ, The Wonderwhy (Hidden Track) – Wolf Alice
After hearing their debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’ and their set at Leeds Festival, I quickly became a fan of Wolf Alice. They are such a great live band and their record is by far one of my favourites of 2015. These are my personal top 3 tracks off this album however again, like Nothing But Thieves’ album, it would be hard to choose a song I don’t like. Their performance on last weeks episode of ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ (Watch Here) confirmed why I bought tickets to see them again in March of next year as Ellie’s voice is incredible.
Real, Foundation – Years & Years
I have became a fan since they released their album ‘Communion’ back in June and I was lucky enough to get tickets to see them in April next year on their 2016 tour. These two are my current favourites of the album but it was hard to pick!
Love Me – The 1975
I still love The 1975’s self-titled debut album as much now as I did when it was released back in 2013, so when I heard they were releasing a new album, excitement didn’t cover it. As the band’s image has changed significantly in the lead up to next February’s new album, I didn’t know what to expect from this new single, but I loved it on first listen and have had it on repeat ever since!
