Earworm


The first thing I do in the morning is pour some coffee and put the toast on, it’s a normal ritual before I get writing and working, and I usually like to have some music on in the background.

I don’t know about you, but after a few days I find myself getting very bored with the same songs over and over again. The Spotify ‘What’s New’ list is, well, dire… but this week I have been lucky enough however to stumble upon The Hundred in the Hands.

A funky duo of “Avant-pop split between the austere and feverish”. Now, I am no music junkie nor am I very knowledgeable in the correct terms and genres, but I am loving their songs. They write together and found one another while travelling across the US. They are based in New York and bring the past sounds of vintage hip-hop and 60s pop into today’s eclectic music scene.

My favourite songs so far are Pigeons, Building in L.O.V.E and Dressed in Dresden. Their website is not only a great place to read about them, but they also write and review music and designers…
