Think your band knowledge is up to scratch? Answer all 10 questions right and get bragging rights from all your mates.
What do you do next after your debut track accidentally becomes a viral sensation? That was the question mark hanging over Yung Heazy after his tune “Cuz You’re My Girl,” originally written as a Valentine’s Day present for his girlfriend and uploaded under a joke name amassed a ludicrous amount of streams on Soundcloud.
The answer? Well the one-man dream-pop maker decided to roll with it and released a cracker of an LP, When You’re Around I Hate Everything Less this summer. The Canadian one-man-music-machine, real name Jordan Heany comes to London’s Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on Monday 24 September to play songs from the record for his growing number of UK fans for the first time. Tickets are in limited supply and on sale now!
To celebrate the show, we asked the man himself to create us a playlist of tunes that inspire him, and tell us a bit about each one. Enjoy!
One Lung – “Goddamn!”
Dudeman, do yourself a favour and get this earworm in your prismdome.

Very chill and weird and relatable.

Let these young bloods keep you warm in your darkest hour.

I didn’t know I needed Mouth Breather in my life until it was too late.

This is one of the best songs ever written off all time. Bowl is GOAT.

Big mood on this, prepare to feel.
The Prettys – “Nothings Wrong (With Me)”
This is such an infectious song. I sing it to myself all the time.

This song is just an instant classic, you can feel the world crashing down on you with every chorus.
