THE BEAUTY of our Top 10 tracks is that time can go backwards.

This week’s top entry in our Wokingham Loves Music playlist is a song from Red Tape Resistance that was released last year.

 Chris Hillman from White Star Records,  who curates the playlist, has added Hollow and Against The Tide to our tracks for you to enjoy, each one has a link to the borough.

You can listen for FREE, via Spotify.

There’s a special page set-up at  bit.ly/wokinghamlovesmusic

Red Tape Resistance – Hollow

Here’s a track which was released by this Bracknell-based band early last year but, as this playlist hadn’t been created then, we missed it.

Wokingham rock photographer Andrew Merritt reminded us about it. As it’s never too late for a good track from a good band, here it is.

The band’s following has been growing due to their live gigs and we hear that they will be releasing new material very soon.

We’ll look forward to that but, for now, check out ‘Hollow’ for great alt.rock – www.facebook.com/redtaperesistance

Rachel Redman – Against the Tide

We’ll all be able to relate to this new single from Rachel as she describes it as ‘a reflective tale of dealing with life in lockdown and all the chaos and frustration that comes with it’. It’s a wonderful song showcasing the talents of this Berkshire-based singer/songwriter who you may well have seen gracing the stage at Wokingham Festival in the past. The song has been getting some well-deserved radio play including BBC Radio Berkshire and Surrey Hills Radio – www.facebook.com/rachelredmanmusic
