WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?
Our playlists are orientated to the alternative music fan. Lyrics are not essential, abstract ideas are embraced and the fusing of different genres is encouraged. If you used to write band names on your pencil case at school, you’ll probably like our playlists.
This isn’t the first time we have invited Trevas to curate the Eclectic Picks, and that’s because he’s a safe paid of hands. If you made the list below, make sure you check out Trevas’ latest track, Heat. There’s a good chance that you’ll be on the same wavelength.
A FEW WORDS FROM TREVAS
It’s been another enjoyable listen to the full inbox at the invitation of the fab Signal Committee. I have sifted, sieved, decanted and boiled down to the following 20 picks – each of which being amazing tracks for their own reasons which resonated eclectically. I hope you enjoy the playlist as much as I enjoyed selecting. Well done to all artists. If, like me, you get the call from Signal Committee – go for it!
