1. Gareth Fernandez - Achilles
I've always wanted to write a Gospel song and this was my chance. Writing this song wasn't easy either as I had to face some personal demons, but I'm pleased with the result. I wanted the song to be raw and meaningful, and I also knew that I wanted the Gospel chi to play a big part in it. Fun fact: the choir is actually just me singing layers upon layers in different harmonies, and pretending to be different characters.
2. Labrinth - Jealous
This song is just crazy beautiful, and it had some influence on Achilles. I love everything from the vocals to the arrangement to the mournful organ and "Disney" strings. I have it on loop just to sing along to it sometimes. Bliss.
