Prove your humanity

December feature artist Sad Hour sat down with GROK submitting the five tracks they were digging right now, in the latest edition of B-Sides. 

Sean Moring: We’ll Live And Die In These Towns – The Enemy

When you are drowning in day-to-day life and are surrounded by decaying buildings, dreary weather, and an uninspired society, you are more concerned about keeping your head above water than attempting some kind of escape. This song is about you.

Scott Ruthenberg: Slow Mover – Angie McMahon

I love this track because it’s so down to earth and honest with stripped back guitar and warm vocals. The first verse talks about the regret of being out at 4am and not wanting to eat fried chicken, it doesn’t get more relatable than that.

Joash Graham: Seashore – The Regrettes

I discovered this band this year. Fell in love with their album, this is one of my favourites from it. The sassy vocals along with the energetic instrumentation makes this track an excellent one.

Greta Andrews-Taylor: Arrow Through Me – Wings

I have been listening to this song so much over the past couple of weeks. It’s such a funky tune and I love the driving bass groove in it. It’s so smooth and makes me feel chilled out and want to dance at the same time. I’ve been listening to Back To The Egg a lot and this is my favourite song from the album.

Long, Long, Long – The Beatles

It’s such a dreamy song. I just love it. I was listening to their self-titled album while I was a passenger during a long drive recently and this was the song I was either drifting off to or woke up to while the sun was going down, looking out at the vast, country scenery. It was so beautiful.
