My favourite songs from a really good month in music.

24. Bloc Party – So Real


23. Night Beds – Corner


22. David Guetta f. Sia & Fetty Wap – Bang My Head


21. Rostam – Wood


20. Brett – Claire Drained


19. Gemini – Time To Share


18. Mu – Vampire


Bonus: Stark Sands with Punch Brothers – The Last Thing On My Mind

Recently watched Inside Llewyn Davis, so that’s why.


17. You Say Party – Ignorance


16. Zhu – In The Morning


15. The Chainsmokers f. Daya – Don’t Let Me Down


14. King Charles – Choke


13. Icona Pop – Someone Who Can Dance


12. Wild Ones – Dim The Lights


11. Wintersleep – Territory


10. Chemical Brothers – Wide Open

This sounds like Lisbon in the summer. I don’t know that sound yet, but I will soon…


9. Foxes – Cruel


8. Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez – We Don’t Talk Anymore


7. 5 Seconds of Summer – Jet Black Heart

Not sure they’d come close to “She Looks So Perfect” again. They have with this one.


6. Adele – Send My Love

Adele is all-powerful, so there is no audio available on Youtube. So in its stead, a pretty good cover of a really good song.



Really talented songwriter. This is the gitch.


4. Sia – Move Your Body/Cheap Thrills/Broken Glass/House on Fire/Footprints

Sia is brilliant. Soooooo many hooks.


3. Jordan Klassen – No Salesman

I’m so thankful to have come across this haunting masterpiece. What a voice and what a melody. Wow.


2. Yeasayer – Prophecy Gun

Simply, one of the best bands on the planet. The chills. Always.


1. The 1975 – Somebody Else/A Change of Heart

The full versions of both of these mega-monster tunes aren’t available on Youtube, so the previews will have to suffice. It’s only March, but these will end up being two of the best songs of 2016, I have no doubt.
