Off The Hook Music challenged the lads of Sunstinger to share with us 5 must listen too tracks and we have put them in a playlist for you so enjoy.
Recently Sunstinger has released a massive banger Shimmer, such a exciting band with a unique sound.
The album 'sparkler' is a great example of what you can create using noise and melody. We've played this song about a million times. It's perfect.
Taylors old band were meant to support them years ago but couldn't get to the venue because of snow.
Lyrically and melodically this song reminds me of Talking Heads without ever sounding like it’s trying to rip them off, and it captures an optimism that is much needed in the world at the moment.
It’s a hip hop song with a sample from a 1971 Turkish Folk-Rock song and big guitar solo at the end where somehow everything blends together perfectly. We are all big fans of Action and this song always makes it on to our playlists.
Originally a joy division song, this song is really important to us as a band. I think the only song similar to this by New Order is probably 'Dreams Never End'. It's like the gap between joy division and new order.
We took alot of inspiration in terms of guitar tone from early new order stuff, and we used to cover this last year when we didn't have enough songs to fill the set.
It's probably one of the greatest songs ever written.
For me this is a song for any occasion and probably one of the best shoe-gaze tracks ever written! A perfect combination of distorted guitars, solid drums and calming strings! Feels like the ultimate nostalgia trip every listen!
Off The Hook Music challenged Neve Bishop lead singer of the extremely exciting band SWINE to share with us her 5 must listen to tracks and we have put them in a playlist for you so enjoy.
A mega tune by an amazing local Bristol band. Elin is an amazing front woman and every time I’ve seen Kite Thief live its been an experience.
Nothing makes me want to kick ass more than this song. It’s my go to song for when I need to feel unstoppable.
The best song on one of the best ever albums in my humble opinion. Everything about it is class.
This song almost made me want to stop playing bass and play guitar instead. Almost.
My favourite song of all time ever. I’ve heard a million times and it still gives me chills.

Quite simply an ‘unwritable’ piece of work.
Somehow makes us all nostalgic about growing up listening to it even though we weren’t alive at that time.
This was the first National track I ever heard, and it was like I found the band I’d always been searching for!
Just such a great song, no ones getting anywhere close to this until they’ve put in their 10000 hours.
The greatest love song of all time.
Off The Hook Music challenged Alex Ohm a fantastic singer songwriter to share with us his 5 must listen to tracks and we have put them in a playlist for you so enjoy.
Love the way this track builds from a soft piano start to a monster of brass that hits hard at the end. Never get bored of listening to this.
This song holds lots of fond memories from seeing Doves play to it soundtracking many a long drive on tour. From the hypnotic intro to the euphoric chorus highs. There’s always room on the stereo for it.
This track is here representing the album ‘An Awesome Wave’. I could listen to that album from start to finish over and over. This track has it all from grit to grace. Top stuff.
Never gets old. This and ‘Still Dre’ actually. Great energy in both the production and delivery. Always gets turned up when it comes on.
How can you not keep playing this track?
Pushing the boundaries for it’s time and still sounds just as fresh today.

"When I first started making electronic music, Rounds by Four Tet was one of the first records I got into. The production on Hands still blows me away. Been on repeat for some time."
"I fell in love with this song during a difficult time in my life. It became something I listened to often as a sort of an anthem. It hangs around a lot of my playlists now."
"For me, this song exemplifies the incredible experience of playing as a duo. There can be a point where two musicians start sounding like they have multiplied into a full band, and the result is magic"
"I love when an artist can draw me into their experience, and make me reevaluate my own."
"I tend to gravitate towards artists that aren't afraid of taking bold risks. No one demonstrates why audacity is a virtue like Joni Mitchell."
