Soundtrack to July

What I've been listening to for the month of July.

So now that my music quota has extended to more than The Last Shadow Puppets I thought I would sit down and write a little music post where I let you know some recent faves. It's pretty cute when friends make you playlists with songs to listen to, but also very useful so you finally have some blog content. Ahem, kidding obviously.

The Virgins
I love that feeling when you discover new music and this happened to me with The Virgins. After having a quick google, this band has actually split but their still music lives on or something cringey like that. The Virgins music has a very almost 70s-80s vibe to it I think but obviously at a modern level. Spotify says their sound mixes 21st century indie vibes with the late-70s new wave attitude of bands like Talking Heads. I happen to really like Talking Heads so it's understandable. The Virgins music is very danceable and something a bit different.

The Strokes
I honestly think that I'm only ever destined to like rock or indie bands consisting of male members. I had dabbled in The Strokes a while back but have recently started listening to them again and I am obsessed. I have been listening to their Comedown Machine album in particular, mixed with some older stuff from the mid 2000s but let's face it I'm not a hard core fan yet.

Catfish and the Bottlemen
I think Catfish and the Bottlemen are just really consistently good and I've loved listening to their two albums. Unsurprisingly they're a British indie rock band. I don't have much more to say about them other than if you like indie rock bands and you haven't heard of them, definitely give them a listen. My favourite songs are 26 and Glasgow.

Do you listen to any of the above and what are you listening to right now?



  1. Wowow!! Just found your blog and I am totally in love! I saw your Submarine by Alex Turner record in this photo and actually squealed because Alex Turner is my favorite human being ever and his songs are pretty much the soundtrack to my life. Haha anyways I love the strokes too! Pretty much my music consists of indie rock and alternative rock. Can't wait to keep reading your blog and being inspired!
