Friday, November 3, 2017

Adelaide's Nakatomi are currently on the road touring the country. Last month, they unleashed their video for their single 'Wooden Castle', which you can have a squiz at hereEmily Smart from the duo shared some of her fave tracks with us in our latest edition of 'What Song...'.

What song reminds you of your youth?
‘Violet’ by Hole
I was obsessed with Courtney Love as a teenager, and this was one of the first songs I ever played live in my very first band (we could only play covers as we didn’t know how to write songs yet!).

What song is your ultimate party track?
‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ by Whitney Houston
Because how can you not wanna get your party on to that?!

What song do you listen to before you jump on stage?
‘Fuck the Pain Away’ by Peaches
To be honest I’d usually be listening to whoever our support band is… but if I wanted to get pumped up I’d go for ‘Fuck the Pain Away’ by Peaches… just for the total don’t give a fuck attitude it instils in you.

What song would you make your theme song?
The theme song from Seinfeld.

What song reminds you of your first heartbreak?
‘Fake Plastic Trees’ by Radiohead
I recall listening to this song on repeat and just bawling my eyes out whenever he sings ‘if I could be what you wanted all the time’… but in a therapeutic way.

What do you have on repeat right now?
‘Heaven’ by Majical Cloudz
That song is giving me all the feels and synthy goodness my heart desires.

What song is your guilty pleasure?
‘I Really Like You’ by Carly Rae Jepson
I’m a big sucker for slick production pop music with an 80s twist, so I have plenty of guilty
pleasure songs, but at the moment it’s ‘I Really Like You’ by Carly Rae Jepson. In fact, that whole album is pure 80s inspired pop gold!
