The 1975 – Lostmyhead, ‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’. This almost 5 and-a-half minute long song doesn’t have many lyrics, but the instrumental is captivating – particularly when played on a decent speaker or on full volume in your headphones. The music fuses with the senses and has the ability to create a story personal to each individual, a strong factor for any piece of music.
Tom Zanetti – Darlin’, ‘Marbella Collection 2016 – Ministry Of Sound’ – The snappy percussion and bouncing bassline combined with Zanetti’s voice gives this song such individuality. It’s been a huge hit on Shazam and House music events nationwide, so we could be seeing more of Zanetti as the year progresses.
TIEKS ft. Dan Harkna – Sunshine, ‘Marbella Collection 2016 – Ministry Of Sound’. This single has such a summer vibe, but it will put you in such a good mood all year round; I’ve been listening to the song since June and it still hasn’t got annoying which is a very good sign. The lyrics are relatable to anyone who has someone in their life that makes them feel better – whether that be a partner, friend or family member – and thus the song has been a hit all across the UK.
The 1975 – Nana, ‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’. “I sat with you beside your bed and cried for things that I wish I’d said” – beautiful, raw and real, this song will hit home for anyone who has lost someone they love. Matt Healy at his finest.
Paolo Nutini – Better Man, ‘Caustic Love’. This song embodies what it’s like to be in love – wanting to be better for that person in order to make them happy. Nutini’s voice is faultless as ever and the acoustic vibe makes the song so much more raw and personal.
