NBHAP - Songs 2013Sometimes it’s not about being the best but rather about what your heart tells you. You might know that we at NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION prefer this strategy. So, instead of giving you yet another ‘Best Songs of 2013’ tracklist we just asked each and every one who helped making our magazine to provide their most loved songs of the past months with us.

And the result is as surprising and diversified as you might know it from us. Twenty songs that represent quite a wide range of all the musical influences that helped shaping NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION. From the soulful ballads of acts like RHYE and NILS FRAHM, to the powerful guitar walls of RUSSIAN CIRCLES and CULT OF LUNA, up to the dark electronica of MOUNT KIMBIE and DARKSIDE. And there is way more to discover. Well-known names like METRONOMY and THE BOXER REBELLION go hand in hand with promising new acts like CROOKED HANDS and BOMBEE. Different moods, different music. It’s our pleasure to surprise you.

Don’t forget to also check out our favourite albums of 2013, some overlooked musical treasures and thirteen remarkable music videos of the year you should not miss. But don’t forget to enjoy these favourite tunes as well. Our little ‘thank you’ for your support. May they provide guidance through the final days of the year.
