Silent Alarm

Helicopter, Banquet, So Here We Are

I recently discovered an old playlist called “Indie Stuff 2005”. Man, what a decent era in UK music. Guitar bands owned the charts and sublime debut albums like this were coming out left, right and centre.

This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favourite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged.Like Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People…, The Libertines – Up The Bracket and Foals – Total Life Forever.
