Dot To Dot is in less than two weeks and we are prepping ourselves by getting to know more about some of the amazing acts on this year’s line up!
For our next D2D Mixtape we had songwriting duo and best friends Louise Macphail (Bristol) and Kristin McFadden (Chicago) AKA Prima Queen, handpick a selection of tracks and talk us through what they mean to them.
THE MOST RECENT TRACK YOU RELEASED
Invisible Hand – Prima Queen
A SONG THAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME AN ARTIST
Louise – That Don’t Impress Me Much by Shania Twain
This was the first album I had on CD and I remember listening to her in the car with my dad and being like ‘woah I want to be a rockstar like her’.
A SONG THAT GIVES YOU NOSTALGIA
Kristin – “You’re So Vain” by Carly Simon
My mom usually doesn’t sing but she absolutely loves this song and I have so many memories of us singing it at the top of our lungs together in the car. I can’t hear it without hearing her voice.
A SONG FROM THE BEST ARTIST YOU’VE SEEN LIVE
Louise – “They All Want You” by Lissie
I went to watch her play a few years ago in Brooklyn and was blown away by her stage presence. I didn’t know any of her songs beforehand and went away and rinsed all her albums.
A SONG THAT WOULD BE THE SOUNDTRACK TO A SERIES ABOUT YOUR LIFE
Kristin – “Taking the Long Way” by the Chicks
I used to love singing/playing this song when I was like 10 years old and heard it recently and was like “wow I still really love and relate to this song.” It made me feel like I must have known from a young age that I was going to do something a bit different with my life.
A SONG YOU WISH YOU HAD WRITTEN YOURSELF
Louise – “Angeleyes” by ABBA
Or any other song on Voulez Vous. Hit after hit.
A SONG THAT GETS YOU IN THE MOOD FOR SUMMER
Kristin – “About Damn Time” by Lizzo
To be honest I’m pretty much exclusively listening to Lizzo at the moment. She’s the energy I need right now.
A SONG FROM THE ARTIST YOU ARE MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO CHECKING OUT AT D2D
Louise – “Hide & Seek” by Etta Marcus
Have had this song going round and round and round in my head non stop for the past 6 months
YOUR ABSOLUTE GUILTY PLEASURE
Kristin – Me Too by Meghan Trainor
Sorry not sorry! You just can’t feel bad listening to this song
Big thanks to Prima Queen for taking part, you can listen to their playlist in full here.
