TO DROWN IN DARK WATER – THE PLAYLIST

Music has always been a huge part of my life. While I’m writing the radio is on pretty much constantly (BBC 6music for the win), and a lot of my formative years involved travelling around to see bands. In fact it’s down to the band Blyth Power that I met my future wife and got my first start in field archaeology.

It’s a couple of months since To Drown in Dark Water came out, and I wanted to celebrate that by putting together a playlist. One song for each story. Some reflect the storyline, others capture the mood I had in mind when I wrote the story. You can listen to the whole playlist at TO DROWN IN DARK WATER PLAYLIST

I hope you enjoy the tunes. See below for the full list.
