Annabel Allum's 'planting seeds with Annabel' playlist, feat. Mosa Wild, Nilufer Yanya and more

When we were little Dorks, we were big fans of planting things - carrots, sweetcorn, tomatoes, beans. If you could eat it, we were on it. Our pal Annabel Allum is also a fan, it turns out - and she's done us a themed playlist ahead of her set at Homeschool. "Whilst isolating, I’ve been spending a lot of time planting seeds and watching my flower and vegetable friends come to life," she explains. "Here is my gardening soundtrack."

Mort Garson - Plantasia

Tropical and psychedelic, of growing plants has a soundtrack, it’d be this. I get lost in all the textures!

Alice Merton - No Roots

This just had to make the playlist. Grow my children, grow those roots!

Mosa Wild - Tides

We both supported Jade Bird on her UK tour last November, and it was a privilege to watch them every night. I very quickly got hooked on their tracks, with lyricism often relating to nature and the world around us, they’re the perfect band to plant a seed to.

Nilufer Yanya - The Florist

She’s one of my new found favourites at the moment. She played Union Chapel for the Rebalance International Women’s Day event I spoke at. Of course the guitar tones and lyrical content are perfect for reporting a newly sprung sunflower.

Mommy - Hammock

Moody, lo-fi, and glorious. I feel at one with myself and my surroundings when I hear this track.

Elder Island - Bamboo

I am obsessed with this band. They set the scene perfectly, I feel like I can do anything when I listen to them. Assemble a greenhouse, pull out a well-rooted weed.

F
lowvers - Fresh Air
Summer surf vibes, I love listening to this whilst sitting in my garden and watching my seedlings bloom with a beer and a bonfire.

The Lumineers - Flowers In Your Hair

There’s always space in my collection for The Lumineers. They remind me of long Texan roads and seeing the biggest cacti I’ve ever seen.

Annabel Allum is taking part in new online festival Homeschool, which runs from 8th-10th May - visit homeschoolfest.com for details.
