Each week, we’ll collate a playlist of songs that we’re listening to at Roadburn HQ and put them into playlist form via Spotify. Not all the songs will be new, not all of them will be from artists that have played Roadburn or will in the future; consider it a glimpse into what’s inspiring us right now.

If you like what you hear, please subscribe to the playlist – we’ll be updating it regularly! Click here or see below to check out the inaugural Roadburn: Essential Sounds playlist.

Our first ever Roadburn: Essential Sounds play list kicks off with Soft Kill – a track taken from their recently released album, Savior. Swiftly following is Our Raw Heart – a new track from Yob, which will appear on their new album of the same name, which is due out a week today. Welcome back Yob!

We hope these playlists will highlight new bands, and reinvigorate your love for old favourites. It’s been fun to put together – same time next week?
