Mastodon – ‘The Last Baron’ [2009]

“It’s such an epic track, running for 13-minutes, and over the lockdown I found it was the perfect way for me to escape. To me, the song represents grief, confusion, and an almost apocalyptic sense of destruction, which are all things that I could relate to the situation of both myself and the wider world over the last couple of years. The guitars are also absolutely insane the whole way through!”

Jeremy Loops – ‘Down South’ [2015]

“I went on a family holiday back in 2019 and we listened to this song so much whilst we were away. It has such a holiday vibe and makes me feel so free and happy. Over lockdown I began listening to it again and thinking about all the memories of that holiday, it became the theme song for our family Zoom quiz nights and the soundtrack for my daily runs, and we even introduced our newborn baby to it!”
