London Fashion Week came to a close yesterday. From the bold florals of Mary Katrantzou to the dippy romanticism of Meadham Kirchhoff and some impressive A-list dresses it’s been another standout performance from the city. To celebrate London’s ever edgy chic we’ve compiled a cool Britannia playlist featuring just a few of the best bands from the UK for your delectation…

Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart
Written in 1979 by the late, great Ian Curtis, this haunting synth driven song has lost none of its influence or compelling magnetism.

Kate Bush – Hounds Of Love
English eccentricity at its finest, Kate Bush’s ethereal look and hypnotic voice defined an era.

Suede – The Beautiful Ones
One of the many Britpop bands Suede’s sneering nonchalance produced a catalogue of singalong hits which ensure they’re still popular on the festival circuit.

The Libertines – Up The Bracket
Recalling the sound of bands like The Jam, the Libertines brought a sense of identity, and controversy back to British music.

Florence + The Machine – Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)
Proof that every band sounds better with a harp, Florence, a self-styled Lady of Shalot has inspired the fashion world as much as the crop of female singer songwriters who have followed in her lead.
