7 songs: Meadowlark



Hey guys!

Have you ever thought about how powerful music really is?

I mean, think about it.
A song can be enough to get you on your feet to dance.
A song can be the reminder of a memory you've stored in the back if your mind.
A song can be what makes you feel understood.

The list could go on forever, but you get the point.

We love the power of music and our "7 songs" feature is here to celebrate the different emotions caused by music.

Today we have the fantastic duo Meadowlark here to chat about their choices of songs.


But first, let's get to know them.


Meadowlark are an Alternative duo based in Bristol, UK consisting of Kate McGill and Dan Broadley.

Both members had a musical background and career before starting the band

Kate had tens of millions of views on her YouTube channel for her broad variety of covers.
She released an alubm, had her tracks featured on Radio 2 and spent time in Los Angeles to write with renowned hitmakers.

Dan played in various rockbands and was earning a reputation as a great director who has worked with the likes of Don Broco, Lower Than Atlantis and Mallory Knox.

Kate didn't want to be known for covering other peoples' songs and had plenty of material on her own. Meanwhile Dan's musical taste changed and the struggle to find like-minded band mates was too much.

They had known of each other, Kate reached out and soon after a jam session the band was born.
Before they even had a band name or any finished songs recorded, they got asked to support Bastille.

Since then they've released multiple EPs, ("Dual" in 2015, "Paraffin" in 2016, "Nocturnes" in 2017) and their debut album "Postscards" in June of 2017.
