Hello gang, welcome to this week’s roundup of the Good Sounds Playlist! Once again, I want to say thank you to everybody who help us reach 100 Followers on Spotify. It’s a proper cool moment and one that puts a smile on my face. I’ve felt a little disconnected from the world and haven’t been giving enough time towards Sounds Good but I’m gonna change that by saying THANK YOU. Without you lot, Sounds Good wouldn’t have a reason to keep going.
Anyway, all soppiness aside, this week’s playlist is titled WHAT YOU NEED, after the gloriously sunny new single from Zeke Finn. Zeke my man, thank you. Summer is proper making its mark on the world (and the amount of sleep I get) so it’s good to shove some of that sunshine into your earholes. You can thank Peanut Mixtape for the inclusion of Lisztomania, as her reference to it made me realise that I hadn’t listened to Phoenix in years. What a tune.
Outside of those two tracks we have new singles from The Hives, Me Not You and Only Sun, all of whom are Sounds Good alumni. Velvet Starlings, Sick Joy and BRIDGES maintain the gritty side of the playlist whereas Anna Wiebe, Blue Lab Beats and Calum Jones offer up some slightly softer, definitely groovier slices of noise. Special shoutout to Ali Barter who’s new single “Backseat” is graced by the funniest music video I’ve seen in ages. Ali, your acting is superb my dude and your single’s great too.
I hope you enjoy this week’s Good Sounds Playlist! I’m fully embracing the summer vibes these days so if you have any recommendations for summer tunes then PLEASE LET ME KNOW DOWN BELOW. Until next week, love love love. Xo
