5 Songs I Love W/ Ronan Maclean
Updated: Jan 31
Ronan Maclean has just made his debut with the infectious new electronic-pop single 'Right Here, Right Now'. A track packed with catchy hooks, a danceable beat and a sea of washy synths, we were intrigued to learn more about what inspires Ronan's music and what his favourite tracks are:
September - Earth, Wind and Fire
I love Earth, Wind and Fire because they make the most feel good music ever, and “September” fully encapsulates this. I love disco music and that it just makes you want to dance. One of my goals in my music is to lift the listeners mood in any way possible, and Earth, Wind and Fire are a big inspiration for that.
Attention - Charlie Puth
I write, record and produce all my music myself just like my idol, Charlie Puth. He manages to make “bedroom pop” that doesn’t sound like it was made only by him at all. I love the song “Attention” because I feel it is the perfect pop song. The catchy melody’s and the bass-line in the chorus make this one of my favourite songs from one of my favourite artists of all time.
Good time - Owl City, Carly Rae Jepson
What can I say, I love feel good music. If I’m ever having a bad day, music like this can flip your mood instantly. Thats why I love it so much. It’s also very danceable and as I make pop/dance music as well, it really inspires me to create uplifting music.
Walking On A Dream - Empire of the Sun
Another thing I love in music is the vibes and the memories you can associate with a song. It’s something I strive for in my own music. ‘Walking on a dream’ is in my opinion, the vibiest song ever, I just love how everything is so smooth and just makes you want to dance and relax at the same time.
Paris - The Chainsmokers
The Chainsmokers are a massive inspiration for me. I have adopted so many aspects of their style into my own music, “Paris” is my favourite song by them, it has the perfect balance of vibes, danciness and feel goodness in one absolutely amazing song.
