Watch Listen Tell

Watch Listen Tell is one of my favourite Youtube playlists, it has gorgeous shots of singers and bands who are really on the cusp of becoming in the mass audience so its a great one to keep a look at to keep up with new music.

They show artists acoustically who write their own songs and sing so beautifully, they definitely deserve people hearing them.

Some of my most favourite artists star in their videos including their very first post which is an extremely young looking Florence + the Machine with her band and a stick.

{Florence + the Machine 'My Boy Builds Coffins'}

I absolutely love their little intros at the start, you can really see the characters of the artists more than just boring interviews you often see in music magazines.

Here a few favourite videos of mine but honestly they're all just brilliant and well worth an hour of watching!

{Michael Kiwanuka 'I'm Getting Ready'}

{Ben Howard 'Old Pine'}

{Young the Giant 'I Got'}

{Lucy Rose 'Night Bus'}

{Villagers 'Becoming a Jackal'}

{Two Door Cinema Club 'Something Good Can Work}

{Bombay Bicycle Club 'Dust on the Ground'}

Most of these links are bands who have now become household names in the charts so who knows what will happen to the bands in their new videos? Their twitter is @watchlistentell so follow them to keep up to date with their new video updates!

My weekends pretty chocka block full of seeing friends before I go skiing so hopefully lots of lovely thing to report next week! Have a lovely summery weekend everyone, crack the Pimms out!
