Non-Goth Music I've been Loving Lately

I love Goth music, some of it is incredibly nostalgic for me and it's one of the things that really bonds me to the subculture. I don't remember the last week I went without listening to some song by The Sisters of Mercy or The Cure. Still, I've been opening my mind up more and more as time goes on to music outside of our little subculture and, lo and behold, some of it is absolutely fantastic. So, here is my list of a few non-Gothic songs I've been listening to a lot lately.


What have you all been listening to lately?

  5. My taste in music is way too mixed to only listen to Gothic music. While it makes up most of my playlists(Both traditional Goth music - like Souxsie or the Sisters of Mercy and some more 'modern' Goth-considered music - Evanescence or metal like Kamelot or Epica) I also love to listen to artists I listened to as a little kid with the family, like Phil Collins, Bryan Adams or 80s Glam rock. Then there's also the odd pop like Rita Ora.

    I think you can tell I love music :P

  6. Anything and everything from GHOST - I love their classic and melodic sound, especially in If You Have Ghosts and Cirice.

  8. I've a soft spot for Hozier and Abney Park - AP may not be goth but they play Whitby Goth Weekend fairly regularly. I've been listening to The Clockwork Dolls, Damian Rice and Agnes Obel's beautiful, haunting songs. But I've also been delving into my 80s electro-pop back catalogue and listening to Depeche Mode (whom Mr William Control owes a huge debt of gratitude to!), New Order, Erasure and OMD. Fluffy surface, dark undertones and great to dance to!

  10. When I don't listen to goth/post-punk, I listen to a lot of sledge metal, post-hardcore, spoken word and some indie rock and pop.
