Sunset Sons' 'icons' playlist, feat. Missy Elliot, Dolly Parton, Madonna and more

Fresh from dropping their new single ‘Say Hi’, a just-finished UK tour, and the start of festival season (catch them at Truck and Boardmasters), British-Australian outfit Sunset Sons have put together a playlist featuring some of their fave icons.

"There is a wide range of musical tastes within the band but we’ve always agreed on the importance of melody and good songs,” they explain. “We thought we’d make a playlist of the most iconic artists that we love for you guys… check it out."

Have a listen below.

Missy Elliot – Get Ur Freak On
Rory:
A game changer by one of the best in the rap game. Empowering confidence and attitude and she’s still killing it.

Divinyls – I Touch Myself
Pete:
Chrissy Amphlett embodied everything rock'n'roll… never has a finer person fronted a band. This song is just the right amount of raunch, sass and rock'n'roll.

Patti Smith – Because the Night
Jed:
I love the whole story behind this tune, with Bruce Springsteen not wanting it for Darkness On the Edge of Town and Jimmy Iovine thinking it could make or break an album, and how Patti took the song and made it perfect and uniquely hers. A great story behind an amazing song.

The Supremes – You Keep Me Hangin On
Rory:
The voices of Motown. Strong, beautiful music of a generation that still resonates today.

Dolly Parton – Jolene
Pete:
The voice, the hair, the image, the humour, the attitude, the music… she’s got her own f&@king theme park!!! That’s an icon!!!

Bob Dylan – You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go
Jed:
Dylan making heartbreak sound so lighthearted. This tune could’ve been a ballad, but I think it has so much more resonance delivered in this way.

Madonna – Hung Up
Rory:
The definition of a pop star. Madonna takes risks in her music and pushes the envelope to this day. A true icon in the game.

Fleetwood Mac – Landslide
Jed:
Stevie Nicks wrote this song, and I just love how fragile and honest it is. And it has the best vocal. Cool as. Stevie forever.
