The sunshine has begun to shine and I have discovered some ACE Music. Some of the below artists I have stumbled upon myself, others I have been nudged in the right direction from my musically talented friend Simon.
I have compiled a Spotify playlist for your hearing pleasure below.
First Aid Kit
Swedish folk dou - I know, late to the party...
Post hardcore / skater punk - there was absolutely no way I wouldn't have liked this band - being the teen-emo I was.
South African band, a mix of afropop, reggae, R&B and South African house - happy music.
Trampled by Turtles
The best type of alternative folk, is the happiest kind. 'Wait so Long' is the song let reeled me in.
Not my usual taste but I have harboured a soft spot since her stint on X Factor.
Francois & The Atlas
French indie pop, afrobeat. The French win.
