Music Monday – Volume Seventy Nine

1) A$ap Rocky –Fashion Killa

Built around a mesh of jittery synth clips, this is just so damn good.

2) Burial – Shell of Light

UK garage music at its best.

3) The 1975 – Me

It was only when I saw The 1975 live a couple of weeks ago that I finally paid full attention to this song. Prior to that, it was the one song by them I didn’t care much for. On closer inspection of the lyrics, I found it beautifully haunting and very relatable in some areas.

4) Shura – Kids N’ Stuff

I’ve been even more obsessed with Shura since seeing her live last week. This was a new track from her forthcoming album and I fell head over heels in love with it. Bittersweet, gentle & so eighties it hurts! It transported me into another world whilst there and I cannot stop listening to this even when the quality isn’t brilliant. Studio version soon please!

5) Coldplay – Kaleidoscope

Beautifully haunting instrumental which features on Coldplay’s latest album.

Lovely waltz-like ballad from the latest album ‘A Head Full of Dreams’.

7) Coldplay – Up & Up

For any Coldplay fans disappointed with the very Pop-inspired direction of the new album, this song is likely to be the album’s redemption. Powerful and uplifting track with Noel Gallagher contributing his guitar playing.

8) Troye Sivan & Betty Who – Heaven

Troye Sivan’s début album is probably one of the best of 2015. This is a gorgeous song and one of many which documents his experience of coming out as gay.

9) Troye Sivan – Youth

Bouncy pop track with an awesome hook.

10) Troye Sivan – for him.

A slightly lighter and more breezy track from Troye Sivan’s début album.
