  31. Cherri Bomb (Listened to because of Shake The Ground)
  32. Dan Deacon (Listened to because of Lots)
  33. Brand New (Listened to because of Jaws Theme Swimming)
  34. Netsky (Listened to because of When Darkness Falls)
As you can see, I decided to carry on this goal for an extra couple of days because finding new music to listen to is one of the best feelings on the planet.

My favourites out of the 34 bands and artists are undoubtedly:
  • Make Sparks
  • Icon For Hire
  • Fit For Rivals
  • Pure Love
  • MMX
  • Imagine Dragons
  • Marvelous 3
There's no excuse for not taking five minutes out of your day to find a new up and coming band or artist to support. Just go onto youtube and go on a suggestion goose-chase. Spotify's related artists feature is also brilliant when it comes to finding new music to listen to. 

Very happy, because this is the first goal I can cross off my 101 in 1001 goals sheet. Worthwhile? I think so.

I've got nothing else to add, so I'm going to leave you with some Icon For Hire lyrics:
"I’ve survived on life support but I’m stronger than I give myself credit for
These conditions only cure when we prepare ourselves for war"
