To be completely honest, I don't listen to music that much. I feel a bit like the odd one out when I say that I don't have my headphones in when I'm walking somewhere, I prefer to just be with my thoughts. But, recently I've felt the need to re-visit my 'old style', and what used to 'feel like me'.

So, this month I've been re-finding some of my old favourite tracks, like Kill the Lights, by The Birthday Massacre - which is one of my favourite songs, from one of my favourite bands ever (seeing them live in Camden when I was a teenager was fantastic) - Hurt by Johnny Cash, and Stargazer by Blood Stain Child (be patient with this track, it's not as intense as it sounds and actually has beautiful vocals! Please wait for them to start before skipping!). A song that got me through a hard time in my younger years, and means a lot to me, is The Shield and The Sword, by Clare Maguire, and though this is (surprisingly) not on spotify, an interesting remix version is. I've also been listening to some of her newer tracks, but my favourites are still from her older albums, like This Is Not The End, which is a breathtaking reinvention of The Parting Glass.

Along with these old faves I've included some of the more recent hits that I've heard on music channels and instantly loved, like Take Me To Church by Hozier and the incredibly catchy I Really Like You by Carly Rae Jepsen. I've also added a few of the Haim tracks I've been liking a lot recently (Go Slow, and The Wire), and one of the songs that my partner has had on repeat while working out that has stuck with me (Hero of War, Rise Against). An old friend recently posted a link to Twisted Measure's acapella version of Sia's Chandelier, which is beautiful, and I've been listening to it non-stop since.

Basically this playlist is an odd mix, but for me it works, and hopefully you might find something you enjoy too! xx Sarah
