Giulia's ready for the festive season!

5. Bon Iver – ’22 A Million’

As the cold nights start drawing in, there’s nothing better than a nice warm bubble bath and a glass of wine listening to a nice cosy album. ’22 A Million’ by Bon Iver is just that. Justin Vernon’s velvety vocals couldn’t be a more suited soundtrack for when the rain is lashing down on your window and you’re soaking in a lovely warm bath.

4. Petit Biscuit – ‘Presence’

One listen through of Petit Biscuit’s latest album will send you on the hunt for a magical experience. I’d suggest an evening wrapped up warm in the garden, sat round a fire pit, stargazing. The innovative synths and beats used in Petit Biscuit’s music feel a bit like the audio version of the Northern Lights. Perfect for a chilled, yet magical evening!

3. Vampire Weekend – ‘Contra’

The album opens with the line “in December drinking Horchata” and has a real winter vibe to it. It’s all in all quite an upbeat album so it’s perfect for picking you up in the gloomy months after Christmas, when all the fun’s over and you have to go back to work again. This album could also be perfect for family parties and having friends over for cocktails.

2. Michael Bublé – ‘Christmas’

A fairly obvious choice, but Michael Bublé’s ‘Christmas’ album had to make the list. Nothing screams Christmas quite like the king of the festive season himself, Michael Bublé. This album is packed full of your festive favourites, but for some reason they just sound so much better sung by the smooth, swing voice of Bublé. This album adds that extra spark to your festive season and incorporates the true meaning of Christmas.

1. Wolf Alice – ‘Visions Of A Life’

‘Visions Of A Life’ is the new album from indie punk rock band, Wolf Alice. This one’s perfect for getting ready for a night out, or a long drive back home to your parents’ house. One of the coolest albums I’ve heard in a long time from one of the best bands in the UK at the moment. Has the perfect mix of ‘car headbanging’ songs, and songs you can gaze out of the car window longingly to.
