E4 Glue Soundtrack
We are a little addicted to E4’s new hit show Glue; the storyline, the characters, the drama, we love it all! But our favourite thing about it is the amazing music featured on the soundtrack.
It may come as no surprise then, that Glue was written and created by Bafta Award-winning Jack Thorne, who also wrote for the E4 show Skins. There are several similarities between the shows, but the most obvious is that they both share the same passion for music, carefully choosing the perfect soundtrack to blend naturally with the script.
So here at Janes we have complied a list of five of our favourite tracks featured on Glue, with a little bit of information about the artists…
ALICE BONAN – WAITING
Relatively new on the music scene, Scandinavian songstress Alice Bonan has a hauntingly beautiful voice. Her song waiting depicts the post break-up urge to cling to someone that has already left: ‘I want you more than I need you, and I need you so bad. Are you coming back?’
We expect big things from Alice Bonan in 2015, so keep your eyes peeled for more of her stuff!
ALT-J – HUNGER OF THE PINE
We featured Hunger of the Pine on our summer playlist and we haven’t been able to get out of our heads! The eerie sound of the track perfectly intertwines with the tension that surrounds the plot of the show.
Alt-J have recently released their second album This Is All Yours, you can head to their website, to have a listen.
NICK MULVEY- FEVER TO THE FORM
Also relatively new on the music scene is bearded beauty Nick Mulvey. His debut studio album First Mind was released in May 2014 gaining widespread positive reviews. Fever Of The Form is our favourite track on the album, so we were delighted to hear it in Glue!
IBEYI – OYA
Ibeyi are 19-year-old French Cuban twins Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz. They are currently working on their debut album, expected for release in 2015. The pair sing in French, English, Spanish and Yoruba and have stated in interviews that some of their influences are James Blake and Nina Simone.
Have a listen to the chilling sound of Oya…
WARPAINT – LOVE IS TO DIE
As long-term fans of Warpaint here at Janes we were delighted when the all-female quartet dropped their second album back in January. Love Is To Die was the first single released from the album; it’s one of those tracks that you cannot help but come back to, listening to the chorus ‘love is to die, love is to not die, love is to dance’ reverberate through your mind hours after first hearing it.
