José González - Heartbeats

Originally a dance track by Swedish duo 'The Knife', this beautiful adaptation by José González was released in 2003, to critical acclaim.

Famously used by Sony in an advert for their BRAVIA TV, which featured multi-coloured rubber balls bouncing down the streets of San Francisco. This is an autumnal, chill out tune up there with the very best!

Jessie Ware - Champagne Kisses

Born and raised in Clapham, Jessie Ware is one of the finest British female vocalists of our generation. This 2015 single came from her album "Tough Love".

Sit back, relax, and let the heart-meltingly flawless vocal performance take you away!

Mac Miller - Come Back To Earth

Mac Miller - a truly generational talent who was, without doubt, taken from us far too soon. Just as comfortable making upbeat, tongue in cheek funk tracks along the lines of "Dang!" as he was melodic, heartfelt hip-hop and R&B. His lyrical mastery is second-to-none.

Enjoy this lo-fi, downtempo, lead track from his 2018 album "Swimming",

Snow Patrol - Set The Fire To The Third Bar

This wonderful, beautiful, charming track, which features a collaboration with Martha Wainwright on guest vocals, was the third single from Snow Patrol's 2006 album "Eyes Open".

Written in a small house in Dingle, on the west coast of Ireland, overlooking the sea, it's hard not to feel all warm and cosy when you hear it. Drift away....

BTS - Butterfly

Unless you've been living under a rock, it's hard not to have noticed the meteoric rise of K-pop stars BTS. Formed in 2010, they have steadily and consistently dominated not just the world of Korean pop music, but are also global superstars, scoring hits in over 90 countries worldwide!

This 7-piece boyband are perhaps best known for their chart singles "Butter", "Dynamite" and recent collaboration with Coldplay on "My Universe", but there's a softer side to their music, exhibited perfectly in this standout track from their 2015 album "The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2".
