+ Music on my Mind

Music On My Mind is a new blog series I’ll be doing for the site. Enjoy!

Empire of the Sun


The XX

First up is a band that I have been hopelessly addicted to since I got their album in August. The XX have that rare ability to create minimalistic music that packs a certain punch. I am captivated by the vocals of leads Oliver Sim and Romy Madley Croft, and the way they are perfectly juxtaposed with techno beats and seductive melodies. Here’s a XX remix of Florence & the Machine’s take on You’ve Got the Love.


I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to listen to more of Goldfrapp‘s stuff, especially after she took such a risk departing from the sound of the album that gave them such success, Supernature. I downloaded Seventh Tree and am absolutely in love with the easygoing sound of Road to Somewhere.

Daniel Merriweather

I first saw this guy, regettably, while watching Loose Women!, but I heard Red on the radio a few times and think he is the perfect hybrid between Will Young and Jack Penate!

Massive Attack

A truly unique is hard to come by, which is why I highly rate Massive Attack. There’s nothing better than playing your whole iTunes playlist on random and discovering a track you’ve barely listened to – it’s how I rediscovered Protection. It’s an enchanting song borne out of a collaboration with Tracey Thorn of Everything but the Girl.

    Thank you! You might have also heard Every You Every Me’ it’s at the beginning of Cruel Intentions (a film with a cotmlepely awesome soundtrack!) I love everything they’ve done but one of my ex-flatmates really hated them, so I know they are one of those Marmite bands! I’m off to check out your Playlist now
