Day 21 of the 30 Song Challenge is a song you listen to when you’re happy. There’s a few, but “Superhuman Touch” by Athlete is the one I’ve chosen. Taken from their third album, it’s probably their strongest song to date, and certainly my favourite.
Athlete are an under-rated band, in my opinion. “El Salvador” and “You Got The Style” are nice, laid-back songs from their first album; their second album Tourist topped the UK album chart and produced the single “Wires”, which won an Ivor Novelleo award, and “Chances”, which was featured in last year’s series of Doctor Who in the episode ‘Vincent and the Doctor’, written by Richard Curtis. A compilation album of their hits is reportedly in the works.
