The anti-thesis to the ‘summer playlist’, Vanguard’s resident cool kids share the international music hits that are on their radar this winter.
We’re not DJs so we are wary of calling this a a ‘playlist’ we are, however, big music appreciators. So we put our heads together to comprise a track list of ten songs that sound like winter for us.
We use the word ‘sound’ very literally, the drafty winter winds remind us of something haunting (think Ms Mr- Bones) and that gives us the chills (Kilo Kish’s Creepwave is a creepy but awesome song that makes you go brrrrr! Shout outs to Flat Bush Zombies).
For the romantics, the long nights and candle light can be accompanied by some Drake (Furthest Thing), Majid Jordan (Patience) and FKA Twigs (Papi Pacify).
And then for those days that quickly fade to black that just have you feeling ‘some typa way’, we have some Little Dragon, Bonobo and Garden City Movement because sometimes you just need some sultry sounds or weird hollow beats or a sad story to understand your mood. Enjoy!
In no particular order, here are our top ten sounds of winter:
FKA Twigs – Papi Pacify
Kilo Kish- Creepwave
Majid Jordan – Patience
Garden City Movement – Move On
Ms Mr – Bones
Drake – Furthest Thing
Little Dragon – Cat Rider
Bonobo – Sapphire
Kwabs – Lay Back
The Internet – Matt’s Apartment
