For those of you who enjoy writing and drawing, you probably also have an affinity for music like I do. Personally, I find music is a great inspiration. It can make you cry, make you smile or even make you want to jump up and dance (or occasionally make you want to scream for someone to shut it off! Yikes!). Like most artists, I love to listen to music to get the creative juices flowing! Music can make me want to write a huge battle sequence, or a weepy love scene. Music is POWERFUL stuff! So in this short blog post I decided I wanted to put together a list of some of the songs that inspired me throughout writing Sanctum. I hope you enjoy!
- Rise and Fall by Adventure Club ft. Krewella
- Beast by Nico Vega
- She Wolf (Falling to pieces) by David Guetta ft. Sia
- Clarity by Zedd ft. Foxes (Moiez Remix)
- Kill me by The Pretty Reckless
- Circles by KDrew (And many other KDrew songs)
- Burning Bridges by Blue Stahli
- Invaders must die by The Prodigy
- LIMP by Sumo Cyco
- Sail by Awolnation
- Kill Everybody by Skrillex
- Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes (Glitchmob Remix)
- Breath of Life by Florence and the Machine
- Rinseout by Dubba Jonny ft. Maksim & Skydro
- Killing Switch by Last Lynx
- Plan B by the Recluse (Nero instrumental Remix)
- Monster by Meg & Dia (DotEXE Dubstep Remix)
These are only a few of the songs that inspired me while writing Sanctum. You’ll note that most of these are a few years old! I wrote Sanctum back in 2011-2012 so the songs that inspired me were a bit different than what you hear today!
I hope you enjoyed these songs as much as I did!
