Tears For Fears – Everybody Wants To Rule The World 

This is my  favourite song ever!

Carol King – Too Late 

This is a song Reva has always shared with her mum. We recently saw Carol King perform this in Hyde Park and it was unreal. Reva cried a lot 🙂


Fleetwood Mac – Family Man

Fleetwood Mac were one of the key bands that influenced our songwriting. Tango In The Night was one of the ones that really made me realise there’s nothing else I ever want to do with my life than make people feel the way I do when listening to that album.
 

Laurent Garnier – Man With The Red Face  

This track has soundtracked a lot of great nights out with our friends and debauched house parties. It just has an unreal journey and energy.


702 – You Don’t Know


This is s song from both mine and Reva’s childhood that we bonded over. we were probably about 11/12 years old when we used to listen to this track. My older sister showed me it. I remember her and her friends getting ready to go out and meet boys and I’d just sort of sit and absorb everything they said and did. This track was regularly on in the background.

Candi Staton – Young Hearts

Because it’s a classic.

Andre 3000 ft Kelis – Millionaire

This is one of those tracks we all weirdly clicked with in our teens. Never gets old and makes me feel SO SO happy every time I hear it.
 
Nirvana – Come As You Are

This song will always remind me what it feels like and what it is to fall in love. My first ever girlfriend showed me Nirvana and every time Kurt’s vocal enters on this track i feel 14 and drunk with emotion.

Cat Power – Cross Bone Style

this is a track off the record Moon Pix which is one of the saddest things i have ever heard and also one of the most perfect. Just the drums alone in this track are enough to take you somewhere extremely blue and extemeley beautiful!

Angie Stone – I Wish I Didn’t Miss You

I wish I wrote you.

Iconic Eurythmics singer and solo artist Annie Lennox is set to release her seventh studio album on 27th October ’14. Entitled Nostalgia, the new record features twelve covers of seminal songs primarily from the 1930s and ’40s.

Classics played and popularized by the likes of Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Louis Armstrong all appear on the album, which marks a return to the industry for Ms Lennox after a four year absence.

Lennox describes the album as “a challenge” when describing her decision to revitalise the old masterpieces: ““I thought, ‘I wonder what my voice would be like. Would these songs suit my voice?’ It was like a little challenge. I just sort of got to know them, became friends with them really and had a great deal of joy in the process.”
