#ThrowbackThursday: The Verve – ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’

The Verve burst on to the scene many years before the release of ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’ but this song further sky-rocketed the band into the limelight.

The track takes its main theme from an Andrew Loog Oldham orchestral version of The Rolling Stones‘ song ‘The Last Time’ and the orchestral sounds are massively iconic to this song. I love this song though and it really is timeless! 20 years on and it still sounds edgy, cool and somewhat current. You can’t easily define its era by sound alone.

The music video is great too, with singer, Richard Ashcroft, singing the song whilst walking down a busy London pavement, all the while, oblivious to what’s happening around him and refusing to change the pace of his stride or direction throughout.

A great track, that I still can’t get enough of today.

What are your thoughts of this track, 20 years on? Got a #ThrowbackThursday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via social media.

Clean Bandit – ‘Symphony’ featuring Zara Larsson

I’ve loved Clean Bandit ever since their monster single, ‘Rather Be’, which dominated the charts all over the world. Since then, they’ve had a string of other successful hits, including ‘Extraordinary’‘Tears’ and the equally successful, ‘Rockabye’. I genuinely feel that this latest single could well parallel the success of ‘Rather Be’ and ‘Rockabye’ with it’s beautiful orchestral sounds, outstanding vocals from the superbly talented Zara Larsson and the coupling of an emotionally-charged music video.

Clean Bandit are sure to release a follow-up to their debut album soon, judging by their releasing of new music recently.

The video has just been released and is tragically beautiful – it follows the love of a young, black, gay couple – I won’t say any more about the tragedy of it, but it’s definitely worth a watch below!


‘Symphony’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/symphony-feat-zara-larsson/id1210094024?i=1210094302



Linkin Park – ‘Battle Symphony’

Linkin Park are finally back but sadly it would seem that some people are not feeling the new sound! If you ask me, I think the band are showing an impressive diversity and ability to adapt themselves, not just regurgitate the same thing!

They recently released the stunning single, ‘Heavy’, featuring pop singer Kiiara, which is the first time the band have featured a female vocalist on an original song, for a studio album. Now they’re back with another contemporary track from their upcoming album One More Light‘Battle Symphony’. If these newest songs are anything to go by, I am incredibly excited about the new album – it should be set to be hugely different but utterly captivating. Bring it on!

No official video has been released yet but we’ll keep you updated on this.


‘Battle Symphony’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/battle-symphony/id1204427627?i=1204427655
