Who loves you baby? To go with my novel release* here for your delectation is the playlist that makes up the soundtrack for My Lovers and Other Animals. It’s a random selection of tunes mixing industrial, pop, electro, rockabilly and more! The ordering isn’t how I’d usually organise my tracks as it’s done in the order they appear in the novel, like a proper soundtrack y’all.
Here’s the blurb for Lovers which you can read for free here for a limited time only:
Living and loving in London is tough and the internet isn’t helping.
Twenty-eight year old Betty Black thinks it’s time for a change. This is her sexual bildungsroman.
A whacked-out comedy of errors with wrong lovers and wrong people, it’s a story about experimentation, exploration and friendship. Set in London with a soundtrack that covers everything from The Cramps to NIN via Avenue D (rockabilly, industrial, electro – is that even a thing?) together with a smattering of rollergirls, it’s a retro-hipster bonkbuster on rollerskates.
* Not unfortunately a real published release but it’s available so you can read and help me improve it and possibly help me get it in front of a HarperCollins editor! See my previous post for more details.
