Q. Hi Oracle,
I was wondering whether you could recommend some bands or music? Lately I've loved listening to lots of melodic songs (this is the reason why Coldplay are my favourite band). What bands or artists would you recommend that I may not of heard of that are very melodic?

The Oracle replies:

In our end of 2013 Team Oracle, I invited everyone to share their favourite music of the year. Here and here are the links in case you missed them but I'll throw in some melodic artists that are new(ish) to 2014.
