MUSIC | The May Playlist

My May playlist has, yet again, been pretty easy to put together as I’m constantly shazamming everything these days. I mean who doesn’t really?!

First of all I’ve got the new track from Eliza and the Bears. I love this band. I saw them at The Horn in St Albans a couple of years back and it was a great gig – a really small and intimate show that was so much fun. I went off the band not long after that because stupidly I overplayed their songs soooo much. But now they’re back with a more upbeat-than-indie song which is spot on for summer.

I’ve got a few songs in the playlist discovered from Made In Chelsea (again), so I really don’t know what I’m going to do now that the series is over. I’ll be so behind on music again and have to revert to Instagram for my major crush on Sam *sob*.

I’ve also got the very beautiful This Woman’s Work by Kate Nash which, of course, came from the first episode in the return of The Handmaid’s Tale. The scene was beyond emotional but unfortunately it didn’t have the desired effect on me as I’d accidentally seen the clip whilst waiting for Gogglebox to end a previous night so it was a total spoiler for me of sorts. Still, the song was fitting and I am loving that the show is back.

I have a few upbeat oldies in the form of McFly and Avril Lavigne in there too – I couldn’t help it though, with the warm weather the songs are just so fitting right now.

What do you think of my May playlist? Let me know!
