It’s time again for another weekly playlist from the Linc, compiling some of the best music the writers have been listening to over the past week.
Beginning the playlist this week is ‘The Sights’ by Enter Shikari, from their latest album ‘The Spark’. The track sits nicely in the rift between rock and heavy alternatives in a way that Enter Shikari has made their own. It is loud and proud in the way only Enter Shikari are known for and fully produces thee quality we have come to know and love them for.
Next up is a 2016 classic from Biffy Clyro in the form of ‘Howl’. The song really needs no introduction but if somehow you haven’t heard this song, make sure to give it a listen in this week’s playlist.
The orchestral excellence of Elbow never cease to amaze and ‘Trust The Sun’ is no exception to that rule as it features on our playlist. Released earlier this year, Elbow’s album ‘Little Fictions’ is everything the band is known for. The song featured on our playlist is one of a huge proliferation of fantastic songs on the album and I firmly recommend giving the full album a listen.
Braggy-rap once again makes a return to the Linc Playlist in the form of ‘Crisis’ by Rich Chigga. Very similar to previous attempts in the genre, it’s stays within rap’s confinements and doesn’t really exercise the ability to be off the wall or different. However, if braggy-rap is something you enjoy, this song may be for you.
For a calming influence on your day, look no further than ‘Blissing Me’ by Bjork. A song purely melodic, it makes every attempt to be a calming influence on the listener and therefore, definitely worth a listen.
Our next track comes from EDEN, who recently announced his upcoming album as well as a headline tour across the globe. His new song ‘gold’ serves as a teaser for what’s to come on the album set to release next year. It’s techy like most of EDEN’s songs, and involves his incredible vocal ability like many of his songs on his previous album, definitely an artist to keep an eye on.
Finally, a loud and proud indie rock song from YONAKA, in the form of ‘Gods & Lovers’, as the female lead vocalist provides a fiery addition to the track, in a way reminiscent of Wolf Alice. However, the anger and noise is spread across the whole band, perhaps in a very ‘Royal Blood-ish’ way, they generate a lot of sound, and it sounds good.
All of these songs can be found on our Linc Weekly Playlist.
