5 Songs I Love w/ Eleri Angharad
Swansea's own Eleri Angharad recently released her remarkable new track, 'Delete It', to an extremely warm welcome. This fiery and stunning pop offering melded together vibrant and upbeat pop melodies and a heartfelt and frank narrative often found nestled away within country music, a genre Angharad appears to favour.
Earlier this week we caught up with Eleri Angharad to discover five of her all time favourite track, this is what we found out...
Taylor Swift - august
I’ve been a fan of Taylor for a good 12 years but the last two albums Folklore and Evermore completely blew my already incredibly high expectations. It’s hard to pick a favourite song but I think August just about comes top for me. The detail in the lyrics, the heartbreaking happy/sad melodies, and the chaotic build in the second bridge. It’s the ultimate sad girl Summer bop!
Kacey Musgraves - Space Cowboy
What can I say, I love a sad song! The piano on this is perfectly subtle underneath Kacey’s gorgeous vocals and I love the simple sad story of this breakup ballad.
Lorde - Writer In The Dark
I’m here for the whole of Melodrama and absolutely love the dark alt-pop vibes. Writer In The Dark effortlessly flows between darkness and light and I love the way her lyrics flip between sad and almost psychotic on this one.
The Beatles - Here Comes The Sun
This song just encapsulates one of my favourite times of year as Winter melts away into Spring, George Harrison’s deceptively simple guitar riffs and sweet naive lyrics. Still can’t believe this was a B-side!
Dolly Parton - Dumb Blonde
A happy one to finish! I love the sass on this and being blonde I can definitely relate. ‘Yeah when you left you thought I’d sit and you thought I’d wait and you thought I’d cry’ .. no chance! As much as I love a sad breakup song, these girl power vibes are where it’s at.
