Hope & Social: What A Year

I know it’s past Christmas and New Year now, but hey, better late than never… This footage of What a Year looks like the loveliest audience participation experience ever, and it’s a top notch song to boot.

And it wouldn’t be an average blog post if I didn’t mention Dancing Years, so here’s Hope & Social and Dancing Years performing I’ll Do it All Again for Crypt Covers. Smashing x

Dancing Years cover Broken Social Scene

I know I keep going on about how awesome Dancing Years are, but seriously, how can you not get excited when you hear them?!

My sister and I have had the pleasure of seeing this Dancing Years gem a couple of times now. It’s a cover of Anthems for a 17 Year-Old Girl by Broken Social Scene and it’s so beautifully done. If you get the chance to see them live this summer, jump at it, they’re the real deal (unfortunately for me they’re not playing Latitude or Bushstock and my funds just can’t stretch to any more festivals!) x

The Intermission Project: Winter Snow

I had the pleasure of seeing The Intermission Project at the Notting Hill Arts Club last night. These little heart-breakers were part of an awesome night of music, including Hopwood favourites Dancing Years, and Ajimal. I would definitely recommend seeing all three acts live if you get the chance x

Taylor Swift and Dancing Years

I’ve been listening to the same two sets of music this week: T Swizzle’s new album and a delightful discovery in the form of Dancing Years.

Taylor Swift’s new album Red has been on constant repeat in the Hopwood household. We’ve been big fans for years now and openly so. My favourite songs on the album thus far are:

  • I knew You Were Trouble
  • All Too Well
  • We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (it took me a while to appreciate this one, now I’m slightly obsessed)
  • The Last Time (the perfect combination of Snow Patrol and Taylor Swift, so lovely!)

Dancing Years have everything I look for in a band; jumpers, facial hair, trumpets and a chorus of all the above singing their little lungs out. Here’s a little live snippet of them performing live – I  absolutely love the way this track builds.
