Henk-Jan’s soundtrack to 21-30 April 2021

Each day I add music to my soundtrack to 2021 Spotify playlist. Here is the last batch for April.

Wednesday 21 April: CHVRCHES – He Said She Said

It took a while to have new music from the Scottish synth pop trio CHVRCHES. Here’s He Said She Said. Recognizable sound without surprises.

Thursday 22 April: Chiara Young & Walk Off The Earth – Yellow

Coldplay’s Yellow (2000) was recently covered by Chiara Young & Walk Off The Earth. It’s #throwbackthursday

Friday 23 April: Porter Robinson – Trying to Feel Alive

After a hiatus of seven years (you may call that a sabbatical), producer en keyboard player Porter Robinson is back with a new album, Nurture. Here’s the closing track, Trying to Feel Alive.

Saturday 24 April: The Choir

Yesterday, Deep Cuts, The Choirs new album was released to Spotify. As a crowdfunding contributor, I already had the digital album for three weeks. Here’s a typical track that illustrates the timeless wave rock by these veterans.

Sunday 25 April: Faithful, Savannah Locke, Sarah Kroger & Tamar Chipp – The Detour

It takes five more kilometers to reach church in Dedemsvaart this weekend due to road works. Faithful, Savannah Locke, Catholic worship leader and songwriter Sarah Kroger & Tamar Chipp are convinced: “The Detour is the road.”

Monday 26 April: Aurosonic & Katty Heath- Tale of Us

Let’s throw in some vocal trance by Aurosonic featuring Katty Heath to start the work week.

Tuesday 27 April: MINKA – Wandelen

MINKA sings about my feelings: the urge to get out for a walk. King’s Day in the Netherlands, for the second time during the COVID-19 pandemic is not the public holiday and series of festivities we used to celebrate until 2019.

Wednesday 28 April: Sabo – Grey is the new Sunny

Weather forecast was way more positive than the grey skies and chilly temperatures I’m experiencing. Is grey the new sunny?

Thursday 29 April: NINA & LAU – Heart of Glass

It’s #throwbackthursday again. NINA & LAU made a retrowave version of Blondie’s Heart of Glass (1978)

Friday 30 April: Chicane – Hello, Goodbye

Another month passed by quickly. Let’s say goodbye to April and welcome May. Here’s the closing track on Chicane‘s new Everything We Had to Leave Behind album.
