Paerish – Fixed It All
It’s been quite some time since we stopped counting our listening’s of ‘Semi Finalists’, the first album of Pærish, which we know by now like the back of our hands.

LISTEN THIS WEEK:
Every week we highlight a few songs that you should absolutely listen to. In week 16 these are:
Sports Team – Happy (God’s Own Country)
Genre: Alternative rock
FFO: The Magic Gang, Bad Sounds
Listen because: you absolutely enjoyed M5 as well and this song has the same straight rhythms and danceable sound
Working Men’s Clun – X
Genre: synth pop
FFO: The Orielles, Do Nothing
Listen because: this song is hypnotising at one moment while complete cacophonic on the others. It is just as a perfect song for staring absent-minded into nothing as it is to turn up the volume and lose yourself completely in the music
Yard Arms – Hollow Ankles
Genre: melancholic pop
FFO: The National, Phoebe Bridgers
Listen because: this is gentle indie pop with a melancholic layer underneath, and there’s a good chance you keep on humming this melody for a long time after.
You can find these songs, together with other recommendations, in our CHAOTIC TWENTY playlist:
