We get sent TONS of music to listen to, but don’t have time to cover everything. We wanted to have a way to share our favorite songs with you on a consistent basis, so here’s our answer. This list will be updated on a weekly basis to include new songs that we’re really enjoying! You can check out all of our favorite tracks right now, after the break.
Wulf Black – Stop Me (added February 9, 2019)
If I can describe one track as “epic”, it would be this song from the Melbourne-based one-man act, Wulf Black. The track has a song that is in a similar vein to early-Imagine Dragons, as well as X Ambassadors and Hozier. If you’re a fan of current alternative rock radio, you’re going to love this song!
SØRBYE | JENNEBO – HOME (added February 9, 2019)
When I first listened to this track, the first thing that caught my attention were the powerful vocals. The indie folk instrumentals also compliment the vocals and lyrics perfectly. The duo, SØRBYE | JENNEBO, is the coming together of Benjamin Jennebo, the founder of Smash into Pieces, and Daniel Sörbye. If you’re a fan of The Lumineers and Of Monsters & Men, I can guarantee that you’ll enjoy this song!
XamVolo – Alive (added January 26, 2019)
Wow, this track took me by surprise. So much soul packed into a 3 minute and 20 second song. XamVolo is an alternative R&B/soul artist from London who just released his debut album, called All The Sweetness on the Surface. His vocals have so much energy on this track, it’s near impossible to not be bobbing you head along to this unique track that has some great alternative rock style instrumentals, which pair well with his soulful vocals.
Wild Rivers – Moving Target (added January 26, 2019)
The Toronto-based indie folk band, Wild Rivers, is the complete package. Their instrumentals are so soulful and well put together, while their vocals are extremely smooth. Oh, I almost forgot to mention their harmonies, which are just so so so good! If you’re a fan of music that gives you the chills and makes you a bit emotional, Moving Target is a song that you’re going to fall in love with, I guarantee it.
UPSAHL – Drugs (added January 19, 2019)
It won’t take you long, while listening to this song, to realize that this Phoenix, AZ-based singer has a pretty great track! If you’re a fan of indie/electro pop, you’re going to love this song. It’s a well produced recording. On the surface, the lyrics sound like any typical party song about drugs, but if you dig a bit deeper, the song has nothing to do with that topic. Here’s the meaning straight from UPSAHL, “‘I just came here for the drugs,’ is me saying that I’m not here for the extra BS or the clout that people think is so important. I’m just here for the realness. When listening to the song, I want people to feel like they’re at a party, overhearing a bunch of surface-level conversations.”
John The Blind – Two Months (added January 19, 2019)
I’m not usually a fan of a lot of production on vocals, but it is used very tastefully on this track. If you’re a fan of Maroon 5, you’ll definitely enjoy this track from the Rochester, NY-born singer-songwriter-producer. You may not know John Henry Ryan II by name at this point, but you’ve definitely heard songs he either wrote or produced, since his catalog features tracks from the likes of One Direction, Fifth Harmony, Jason Derulo, Maroon 5, John Legend, Pitbull and so many more. His production skills in particular are shown off nicely on this track, very clean sound overall and the track is also really catchy.
Picture This – If You Wanna Be Loved (added January 12, 2019)
I’m a sucker for Irish pop rock bands, so I’s obviously a fan of the new track from Irish rockers, Picture This. To follow-up their debut self-titled album that went #1 in their Ireland, the band is prepping for the February 15th release of their newest album, MDRN LV. If you’re a fan of fellow Irish rock bands, The Script and Kodaline, you’re going to not only love If You Wanna Be Loved, but also the rest of their tracks. Wanna hear more? Check out all of their tunes on Apple Music!
Welshly Arms – Learn To Let Go (added January 12, 2019)
This is just one of those bands that I’m just so glad exists. So much soul is jam packed into every blues rock track that they release. Learn To Let Go is no different, but the band finds time to incorporate some great indie pop and atmospheric rock elements on this track. If you’re a sucker for great vocals like I am, Sam Getz’s vocals don’t disappoint. I just really do love everything about this band. If you want to hear more of their tunes, head over to Apple Music, and also check out their episode of Bus Invaders!
KT Tunstall – Human Being (added December 27, 2018)
Who doesn’t know who KT Tunstall at this point? She has been releasing records since 2004 and has had commercial success with her singles, “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” and “Suddenly I See”, plus many more. Well, she’s back with her newest single “Human Being”, and it doesn’t disappoint. With a mix of pop, rock, indie, and funk elements, there is a little bit of something for everyone on this track. We promise, if you give this song a listen, you won’t be disappointed. Check out more of her music on Apple Music.
Twin Wild – Bad Shivers (added December 15, 2018)
If you’ve never heard Twin Wild’s music, you’re really missing out. I got turned onto them by a friend a couple years ago and I’ve never turned back. Their 2016 EP, My Heart, was one of my favorite releases. That being said, it’s probably no surprise that I’m a huge fan of the band’s latest single, Bad Shivers. It’s everything I’ve grown to love and expect from the band, awesome instrumentals, smooth and consistent vocals, and a great alternative rock sound! If you like what you hear, check out more of their music on Apple Music.
