Hooked On The Music


What I’ve Been Listening To 🎧 | May 2018

May’s been a good month for me music-wise, as I’ve discovered a lot of new songs that I love and want to shout about. This month’s playlist includes a bit of retro Kylie, Keane and The Killers (which all begin with K for some reason, not deliberate at all!) a couple of new additions from Banx & Ranx, CHVRHCES and Raelynn. See the tracklist below for the full scope.

Kacey Musgraves – Golden Hour (2018)*

Country superstar Kacey Musgraves helped bring the genre back to the popular state it’s in today, with singles from her debut album Same Trailer Different Park being played on BBC Radio 2, a storming performance at this year’s Country to Country and gaining critical acclaim with her ripping up the rulebook way of talking about small town issues.

The Wandering Hearts – Wild Silence (2018)*

London-based Country/Americana foursome The Wandering Hearts might be a foreign name to you, but if you listen to the radio there’s a chance you might have heard one of their tracks before.

Craig David – The Time Is Now (2018)

UK garage sensation Craig David stormed on to the mainstream music scene in the late 90s with a feature on the Artful Dodger’s ‘Re-Rewind’, then found success with ‘7 Days’, a fan favourite. After a bit of a hiatus David released ‘Following My Intuition’ in 2016. So what will his sixth studio album ‘The Time Is Now’ offer?
