Adventure Tape

Listen: Tape No.10 – Solo Drives with Nick Sowersby

Driving and music go hand in hand. If it wasn’t terrible for the environment I’d almost exclusively listen to music whilst driving around. I’ve discovered a lot about music while driving: How to feel badass driving around Seaford in a 1995 Toyota Camry; How amazing Veckatimest is from start to finish; how to sing harmonies on long solo drives. The playlist includes different kinds of driving songs. Songs to belt out with friends. Songs to belt out alone. Songs for late night, long distance, hypnotic-state driving. Songs by Bob Seger. It also includes Bizarre Love Triangle, the first song I remember falling in love with on road trips with my family, playing off a tape my parents had in the van labelled ‘80s POWER POP’. I don’t have a car at the moment so I don’t get a chance to listen to music while driving much, but whenever I borrow a car and drive somewhere the trip is delayed by at least 10 minutes while I pick the perfect soundtrack. Hopefully this playlist helps you out.
