Here’s our Spotify playlist of spooky tunes for Halloween / Samhain


This year’s Samhain playlist is oozing with spooky tones, unnerving ambience, dark melodies, foreboding vocals, discombobulating synths, creepy instruments and a sound mass of noise.

The World is scary enough but this playlist is all about escapism.

30 songs from the likes of Clipping, Crack Cloud, Ho99o9, Ikonika, Penelope Trappes, Lorn, Actress, Kat Duma, Gavindanvinci, Hazey Haze, Chelsea Wolfe, Mica Levi, Keeley Forsyth and spooky stalwarts like John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream and Johnny Jewel.

Previous Halloween features:

A 100-song Halloween playlist of darkwave, horror and synth tracks

The spooky world of Horrorcore rap

The Caretaker – An Empty Bliss Beyond This World
