In three days time we’ll be bringing Northern Noise Live back to The Castle Hotel with our fantastic headlining act Coves. Yesterday we offered you a quick question-answer session with the Leamington Spa duo in which they discussed their career so far, their influences and their thoughts on praise from high places. If you missed it, make sure you check it out. With this weekend’s show looming, we asked the Coves duo Beck and John to compile a mixtape of tracks that heavily influenced their sound. What follows is a guide through the music that means the most to this quickly rising band and a cool soundtrack to boot. Check it out on Spotify too.
