I realised today that I don’t often post about music on my blog which is really weird, considering that I listen to music pretty much every day and that me and my husband plan most holidays around gigs both here and abroad. So I figured I would do well to start sharing some of my favourite music.
Starting off with an artist I literally discovered 2 days ago, one of those cool things that happen on twitter , where you see something by chance, follow the trail and discover something new.
Or just a good reason to buy a record player 😊 https://t.co/EnriSjRDXK

Just one of (there are many) favourite artists Olafur Arnalds replying to someone (the tweet quote doesn’t really work that well), I thought Aerocity had an intriguing name (ok I was also curious about this person who doesn’t own a record player) and followed his bio discovering his bandcamp page where I grabbed a free track download of Stranger (see below) which I loved so much I then bought the Escapism EP as well.
I will say, his style reminds me of Olafur Arnalds stuff a fair bit, maybe that’s why I like it. Self described as neo-classical glitch, I can’t say fairer than that, lots of strings too… I’m a sucker for violins and stuff that like that. I’ve listened to it all evening, which seemed to go perfectly with the sun setting. I’m a bit of a hopeless romantic like that too.
let me know what you think of it in the comments?
