5 Songs I Love w/ Connor Mac
Following the release of Connor Mac's captivating new single 'See Through', we wanted to find out more about the music he loves and why! Check out his choices below and if you're a fan you'll be sure to fall in love with Connor Mac's complex and distinctive sound.
1. Oh Caroline - The 1975
This one is fresh. The 1975 have been one of my favourite bands for a long time now and they have been my ‘top artist’ on my yearly Spotify listening metrics since that became a thing. Oh Caroline is an instant classic and the rest of their new album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’ is a masterpiece.
2. Long Distance Love - Little Feat
Little Feat. My all time favourite band after my dad introduced me to them some years ago. The talent in this was band was mental. During the 70s people were listening to a lot of classic rock n roll… my dad would always say the ‘real’ musicians were listening to Little Feat at that time. The variety of music they put out over their career would make for such a diverse show. Definitely check out ‘Two Trains’, ‘Roll Um Easy’ also!
3. Greenhouse - The Bros. Landreth
Joey and Dave Landreth are both very talented combining beautiful guitar playing with soothing and soulful vocals. They have a lot of similar influences to myself which is probably why I love their sound so much. To witness Joey’s slide playing live is something I hope I can do one day! What a talent. This song in particular is gorgeous. Go and listen.
4. Lover, you should’ve come over - Jeff Buckley
Jeff Buckley… such a rare talent who was taken too early. I would’ve loved to see him play live, especially to hear this song in particular. Arguably one of the greatest songs ever written. The song is considered a song that should never be covered as it is incredibly difficult to sing. However, Joey Landreth from The Bros. Landreth released a wonderful cover of it last year and definitely did it justice.
5. Texas Sun - Khruangbin, Leon Bridges
This one might be my favourite driving song of all time. Leon Bridges’ soulful vocal has me captivated from start to finish and the tasteful instrumental behind him is the icing on the cake. If you haven’t heard it do yourself a favour and go and listen.
