H2N Welcomes Charlotte Brennan to the Team

The H2N team is always looking to expand and we’re delighted to introduce our newest recruit, Charlotte Brennan, covering H2N across London, Oxford and Southampton. We thought we’d introduce in typical H2N fashion by getting her lowdown on the music scene in 2022 so far!

Hello, my name is Charlotte. I am a recent English Literature graduate, a huge music fan and an avid gig goer.

If I had to select my top single of the year (so far) then I would have to choose the 80s-inspired bop ‘Happiness’ by The 1975. Taking us back to the sound of 2016’s ‘I Like It When You Sleep’, ‘Happiness’ is a feel-good jam about good old-fashioned love. The use of the saxophone is what ultimately gravitates me towards this single as it is so unapologetically groovy and puts a huge smile on my face every time it graces my eardrums. I am very excited for what Matty and the band have in store for the rest of the year in the build-up to their latest album, ‘Being Funny in a Foreign Language’.

‘Mellow Moon’ by the young talent Alfie Templeman currently holds the title as my number one album of 2022. Full of infectious indie pop and disco leaning tunes, Alfie has created a fun record that I have frequently revisited since its release. ‘Candyfloss’ is a huge standout and will instantly catch your attention through its shining synths and upbeat sound. It is impossible to listen to this record without throwing together a few dance moves.

Sam Fender’s sell-out performance at Finsbury Park in July has to be my favourite live show of the year. Supported by Declan McKenna, Beabadoobee, Fontaines D.C. and many more, this day was jam packed with amazing artists and good vibes. Once on stage, Sam captivated his audience from the first strum of his guitar and this continued for the full hour and a quarter. ‘Get You Down’, ‘Howdon Aldi Death Queue’ and ‘The Borders’ were some of my favourites from the setlist and the infamous ‘Seventeen Going Under’ had the crowd going crazy. Sam will only go from strength to strength and I feel very lucky to have experienced this landmark show.
