Hello there inmates!

Welcome to the first of a new century of Harlequins writing music posts! How are you all? It’s great to see you. It’s been a fairly uneventful week for me at the asylum this time. I’ve been keeping myself busy with my writing of course, but also a particularly amazing new video game release called Tales of Arise. Absolutely loving it so far. I’d recommend it to anybody that enjoys good old fashioned JRPGS. Yes, I’m still a gaming nerd. No, I’m not sorry.

So, anyways, enough about video games. You’re here for the writing music right? The Harlequins writing music that is! Did anybody see the clue for todays theme? I did post it a bit later than usual today I’m afraid. But regardless, did anybody guess it? Well, todays musical theme today is Europe!

Ahh yes! The home of the European Union and one of the great melting pots of the world. Arguably the birthplace of this modern world we all share. Industrial revolutions, political upheaval, cultural phenomena and grave wars. These things and more have shaped this continent and its many nations in countless ways. The various peoples and cultures of the continent all have their own ways and beliefs, and this translates to their music. Even in the same genre, music from one nation can be vastly different from another. They all have their own identities, derived from their respective histories. So, obviously I’m not going to be able to share a band or artist from each European nation. As much as I’d like to, that would be a herculean feat. So instead I’m going to share five of my favourites from the continent and leave the door open for other potential lists in the near future. Sound good? I’m very glad!

So, join me as we delve into the musical minds of Eurocentric artists the…. continent over?

And there we have it for another musical list! Did any of those artists take your fancy? Well, I suggest giving them all a try, they all deserve your time. Can you guess which European nation each of these artists comes from? And don’t just cheat by reading the website links! That’s naughty! A couple of them may even surprise you, to be honest.

So, let’s have some good old fashioned British social media nonsense! The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Twitter and an account over on Instagram. Please follow me over on those pages too, it really helps! Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page. Thanks for everything!

Until next week my friends, have a very crazy day inmates!
