Confetti Live | 29 November – What are our performers listening to?

Monday November 27, 2017


On Wednesday 29 November our Music Performance students will be performing at the first Confetti Live of this academic year; the event makes its debut at Rough Trade! We have a great line-up in store for you and we thought we’d let know you know what the performers have been listening to recently.

Here are the top three tracks they’re listening to right now…

Aye Nizzy

Travis Scott – Butterfly Effect

“The opening lyrics of the hook just resonate so much within me and give me a sense of empowerment.”

Aye Nizzy – Ten Ten

“This song is personal to me as it’s my latest release and one of my best pieces of work to date. You can stream, watch and buy here.”

Rich The Kid ft Kendrick Lamar – New Freezer

“This song is so catchy and Kendrick absolutely kills his verse! Serious vibes.”

Aye Nizzy

Bria Buxton

Don McLean – Vincent

“He has an amazing voice and the lyrics are beautiful.”

Jake Bugg ft Noah Cyrus – Waiting

“This song is from his new album which is completely different to anything he has done before. It has fantastic harmonies.”

The Lumineers – Cleopatra

“I’ve only recently started listening to the band and this song is very emotive and catchy.”

Bria Buxton

Guy Ellerton

DMA’s – Delete

“This song has great lyrics and as a three-piece, they make a lot of sound!”

Sticky Fingers – Violet Skies

“An old classic, funky tune which puts you in a good mood.”

Easy Life – Pockets

“I highly recommend listening to this new local band’s debut single, not much to say, just listen.”

Guy Ellerton

Maizie Walsh

Lewis Capaldi – Fade

“I love this song because it’s so empowering. The transfer from verse to chorus is so uplifting and leaves you with goosebumps. His choice of lyrics are perfect; it’s soulful, beautiful and brilliant.”

Mumford & Sons – Tompkins Square Park

“I’m loving this song at the moment as it was one of the first tracks that got played when I moved into my uni accommodation. It has the ability to enhance whatever emotion you’re feeling at the moment of listening.”

Seafret –  Oceans

“The lyrics in the conjunction to the chord progression makes something magical. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Mumford and Sons and Rhodes.”

Maizie Walsh

Rhianne Mee

Red Velvet – I Just

“Red Velvet is a Korean girl group and I like pretty much every single one of their songs. This song is very different from their usual stuff but they executed it really well.”

Fleetwood Mac – Gypsy

“I never get tired of listening to this song, especially the middle-8 section. It builds extremely well and is just so satisfying to listen to.”

Suzy – I Love You Boy

“This is a really sweet song; Suzy’s vocals are extremely soft and relaxing to hear. Even though it’s a slow song, the melody of the chorus is really catchy and beautiful.”

Rhianne Mee

The Chase

The Icicle Works – Birds Fly

“This has been a favourite of ours for a while now due to the energetic drums, the catchy chorus and the overall production of the track.”

Charlotte Gainsbourg – Deadly Valentine

“Charlotte Gainsbourg has been a recent discovery of ours; we first heard her music playing in Rough Trade and we’ve been hooked ever since!”

Kendrick Lamar – King Kunta

“This is our favourite Kendrick Lamar track, especially with that groovy baseline. Kendrick’s unique voice and the pounding drums create a great funky tune!”

The Chase

Luke Hallam (Black Cats & Magpies)

Foals – Mountain at my Gates

“This is one of my favourite tracks! I love the simplicity of the lead riff and I particularly like the staccato picking style of the riff.”

Jaws – Gold

“The reason for this being one of my favourite songs is that huge, powerful instrumental sections are hard to get right and I think that Jaws do it flawlessly.”

The 1975 – Somebody Else

“This is my all-time favourite track from my all time favourite band but that may change due to their next album on the horizon! This song is beautifully written with genius lyrics and stunning use of chords and synth parts.”
