It’s a cracking collection of tunes

Meet PUZZLE. He’s a pop singer from London, and he sounds quite a lot like this:

 

 

He’s not bad at all, is he

You like him? So do we! We like him a lot, actually. We like him so much, we asked him to put together a playlist of his favourite songs, exclusively for the listening pleasure of you lovely lot. You can find the full playlist at the bottom of the page; for now, here’s PUZZLE telling you a bit about some of the songs he chose:

Sakima – Energy

I came across this song by chance a little while ago. It has such a beautiful balance between simple production and melodic elegance that makes it irresistible.

 

 

Lana Del Rey – Born To Die

I am a huge Lana Del Rey fan, and this track embodies everything I like about her as an artist: clever lyrics, lush strings arrangements with a sparse but edgy production. She encapsulates the modern Lolita heroine in an Americana tale.

 

 

Imogen Heap – The Moment I Said It

Imogen Heap is one of the most prolific British artists of this century. Her songwriting is viscerally captivating, her harmonic construction highly intelligent, and The Moment I Said It is a truly lovely song.

 

 

The Weeknd – Wicked Games

A lot of my production nudges back to this song: it had a huge impact on me. Provocative, gritty, dark and brilliant, this track built The Weeknd as a force to be reckoned with.

 

 

London Grammar – Hey Now 

I saw London Grammar for the first time at the House Festival in Richmond, and I as soon as I heard this song I was instantaneously under their spell. Hey Now is a prime example of their ghostly, otherworldly melodic sensibility and those gorgeous guitars that define their sound.
