Liven Up Your Summer With Music

The best time to hold a concert is in the summer when you can enjoy the music outside rather than being stuck in a darkened room. That is of course, unless we have another torrential summer like last year. If we do, Somerset House's Summer Series might turn out to be a rather soggy event. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that that does not happen.

This year Somerset House's open air concert is between 11th - 21st July with all tickets costing 27.50. There will be eleven different performances across eleven nights, and with such a wide range of genres, there will be something to suit everyone.

I would be lying if I said I had heard any of them, but after doing a bit of research, I can say that the Icelandic band, Of Monsters and Men, is one to go and see. Despite the name, which suggests a rock band, their music is actually very soothing; mystical and enchanting. In contrast, I find South Londoner, Alex Clare's, bebopping tunes jarring and not my style at all.

Other musicians include Lianne La Havas, who mixes soul with folk music, while Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros mix folk with pop. At twenty-two, the songwriter, Tom Odell, is probably a singer who will appeal to teenage girls, particularly with his songs of love and heartache.
