Scroll down below to also listen to Demi Mitchell's album The Overflow.

What song reminds you of your last holiday?
'Blue Motel Room' by Joni Mitchell
Driving through Los Angeles on a sunny Winter’s day has etched this into my memory forever.

What song did you last listen to?
'Fuckin ‘n’ Rollin' by Phantastic Ferniture
What a tune! Their new record is a real good time, especially when you’re cold and would rather be daydreaming about Summer.

What song reminds you of high school?
'15 Step' by Radiohead
Can you tell I was friends with the introverts? I remember Radiohead’s album ‘In Rainbows’ and Bon Iver’s ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’ on repeat a lot. A LOT.

What song is your ultimate party track?
'Got To Give It Up (Pt.1)' by Marvin Gaye
On repeat, all night, please. In fact, I’m sure this has happened before. Most night-outs end in going back to someone’s house to dance to soul music, never gets old.

What song makes you feel motivated?
'Hide In Plain Sight' by Jim James
I love this track, it makes me feel a lot of things. And I guess motivated is one of them, there’s something really powerful about it that sends you into a trance.

What song has been your favourite track of 2018?
'Shoot This Dying Horse' by Shilpa Ray
She’s so underrated and comes recommended by Nick Cave. Dark and raw, it’s great.
