Songstruck: ‘Constantly’ – Emmy The Great

Me and my other half went to see Emmy The Great last week in Amsterdam. She performed in a lovely little venue called De Roode Bioscoop and she was amazing. Her one-woman set was simple and relaxed, and beautiful and heartfelt at the same time.

We had her album Second Love playing most of the weekend. It’s a wonderful album. Have a listen! She started off her set with a Chinese version of ‘Constantly’, the melody of which has been stuck in my head ever since the gig. I thought I’d add both the English and Chinese versions.

Have a wonderful week!

Songstruck: ‘A Perfect Rhythm’ by The Vryll Society

Much can be said about 2016; many icons left us, the world is an absolute mess and I was terrible at posting, well, anything.

But some good things also happened. I saw some wonderful live music, met some of my musical heroes and discovered some fantastic new bands.

One of those new bands that I have a feeling may well blow up more than I would like to is The Vryll Society. There is a touch of the Roses and the Charlatans about them at times and I love every song I have heard by them! Their songs just worm their way into my heart. Fingers crossed I will get to see them in 2017!

This is their latest and it’s a mighty fine tune!

 

Songstruck: ‘Classic Love’ by We Are Scientists

Well, what better song to share today that one by a band that has become one of my favourite bands in the last year or so and that has a video in which a cartoon Trump is being hit by a cartoon car!

Let’s hope the next car crash won’t be Trump becoming the next US president. That… would… not… be… good…

It’s from their latest album Helter Seltzer, which was released in the spring and one of my top albums of 2016.
