Feature: We Play 'What Song...' with Josh Graham from Enerate

Monday, December 4, 2017

Why release a standard album when you can release an interactive album? Enerate embraced their creative side with the rollout of their album via an app. We absolutely love that they've created a visual aspect to accompany their music — music and art are forever the perfect match. To celebrate the release of the album, Josh from the band shares some of the tunes he loves.

You can find out more info about their interactive album here. Search for 'Enerate' in the App Store to check it out! 

What song reminds you of your youth?
'Thinkin Bout You' by Frank Ocean
Press play on this record (one of my all time faves) and it starts with the Sony PS1 start sound, and kicks right into 'Thinkin Bout You'. It’s such a reflective song. It’s perfect.

What song would you love to sample?
'Sneaky Sneaky Dogfriend' by Connan & The Mockasins
I want to sample and cut up that Tuba. Because it’s amaaaaaazing.

What song did you last listen to?
'Sleeping and Falling' by Jonti
It’s an incredible album. So many textures, It’s got Beach Boys vibes peppered with hip-hop and crate digging beats. It’s absolutely beautiful. I love music that teleports you to someplace different.

What song do you wish you collaborated on?
'Some Kind of Nature' by Gorillaz
Damn. Imagine working with Damon Albarn and Lou Reed?! Ahhhhh chills.

What song is your ultimate party track?
'I Want You Back' by Jackson 5 
The bass line and the vocal line give me a serious case of the booty shakes.

What song has been your favourite track of this year?
Little Dark Age by MGMT
I just connected with it. When it came out I was up till like 2am every night working to try and get our app finished for the release. One night I saw it pop up online and I must have listened to it 15 times on repeat on the walk home. I love it. It’s perfect.
