Mood Music – Episode One

So I get a lot of inspiration for my writing from listening to music. My writing is usually instigated by a particular mood or emotion that is influenced by what I’m hearing. I listen to the music and words just start to form, on the back of the music itself or a particular lyric that grabs me.

With that in mind, I’ll be posting some of my go-to music for getting me going. The artists I share will all be big catalysts that have inspired my writing at one time or another.

First up, we have Scottish band Mogwai. I could list so many of their songs that work for me. Mostly an instrumental post-rock group, they are masters at injecting emotion into their music. They craft songs so, so beautifully and I can listen to them all day without getting bored.

This particular song, ‘Auto Rock’, is just one of many I love by them. It was also immortalised in a scene from the film Miami Vice. I adore the way it builds and builds and it speaks of both melancholy and sincerity.

If you don’t already know Mogwai I urge you to check them out.
