The Soundtrack To The Mayfly - James Hazel

Welcome to my stop on The Mayfly tour! Written by James Hazel, The Mayfly is a page-turning, attention-grabbing thriller which will keep you up until it's finished. Unless you have work the next day and need to be up in approximately 1.3 hours... Anyway, here is James to talk about the music that became the playlist for The Mayfly.

The Soundtrack to The Mayfly

Music is very important to me and my taste is varied, from the indie sounds of James Bay and James Morrison to American rock bands Counting Crows and Matchbox Twenty, to electro-rock eighties hits.
Consequentially, it wasn’t an easy task coming up with a playlist to accompany The Mayfly.
What I have done is tried to pick ten songs (the original list was much longer – I’ve spent a long time pruning it) that reflect the flavour of The Mayfly. Some are relevant musically, some have been chosen primarily for their lyrics, but they all mean something.
So here it is…

Scars – Jack Savoretti
Colorblind – Counting Crows
Collide – James Bay
Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley
Black and Blue - Paloma Faith
Castle on the Hill – Ed Sheeran
All We Do – Oh Wonder
Bloodline – The Slow Show
English Town – Matchbox Twenty
Don’t Just Stand There - Olli Ingall
