I cannot believe it is February already! January seemed to go so quickly but I somehow managed to create a pretty long Spotify playlist this month, so here are my top ten picks of 2016 so far:
1) Lush Life – Zara Larsson
2) The Sound – The 1975
As we are nearing the release of The 1975’s second album ‘I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it’, their early song releases just keep getting better and better. Having listened to all three of their latest singles, ‘Love Me’, ‘UGH!’ and ‘The Sound’ being premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, ‘The Sound’ is by far my favourite and I cannot wait to hear the album in February.
3) Middle – DJ Snake feat. Bipolar Sunshine
4) It’s Strange – Louis The Child
The first time I heard of Louis The Child was when I found their amazing remix of Oh Wonder’s song ‘Body Gold’ on their SoundCloud. However I recently heard one of their own songs ‘It’s Strange’ and I absolutely love it and hope that they release more songs of their own soon.
5) Rumour Mill – Rudimental feat. Anne-Marie and Will Heard
6) Her (Loving You) – Glades
Similar to Louis The Child, I also found Glades through SoundCloud by listening to their amazing cover of Troye Sivan’s Fools. I found this particular song of theirs from Connor Franta’s fourth music compilation ‘Common Culture Vol. Four’ that was released at the end of 2015, and I instantly added it to my playlist as Karina’s voice sounds stunning.
7) All My Friends – Snakehips ft. Tinashe, Chance The Rapper
8) Renaissance – Steve James feat. Clarity
9) Loveblood – Sundara Karma
This song was actually released back in November and although I had heard of Sundara Karma, it wasn’t until they came on shuffle on Spotify Radio this month that I listened to them. I love this song and I am so excited that I will be able to see them support Nothing But Thieves when I see them live in April.
10) Ocean Drive – Duke Dumont
