Nialler9 Podcast: Primavera Sound, Body & Soul Festival & the resurgence of Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’


 It’s been a few weeks since Andrea and Niall were able to pod because of holidays, festivals and the summer season.

So it’s a more casual episode this time around with Niall sharing his experiences from week 2 at Primavera Sound in Barcelona and Andrea making a rare festival visit to Body & Soul Festival. There’s also Forbidden Fruit chat and our Nialler9 Discord community weigh in our their experiences at Prima.

And there’s always time to talk about one of the greatest songs of all-time – ‘Running Up That Hill’ by Kate Bush, which as you no doubt know by now, has seen a resurgence thanks to its sync placement in season four of Netflix show Stranger Things, and promptly picked up 616 million Tik Tok plays and has gone to number 1 in the UK and Australia.

Who knew a song from 1985 might become the song of the summer? You don’t need to ask us twice to discuss the enduring appeal of the classic song, and why it’s resonating once more.

Plus, Andrea tells us her opinion on the new Beyoncé song.

It’s all happening.
