Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow on Groundhog Day, signifying an early spring. Even if you don’t believe in meteorological folklore, we at Music & Fashion predict that one of these songs will brighten your day.
Gloomy Rainbow – Do You Remember
Gloomy Rainbow’s “Do You Remember” is presented as a synth pop dreamland. All the while, you desperately want to convince yourself that everything was “holding hands at sunset” and “mango ice cream” as a type of coping mechanism.
LANI – One Way Street
“One Way Street” by LANI is a charmingly hypnotic, alt-pop banger. At times, it slides into a swaying, side-winding melody that creates an increasingly mesmerizing aesthetic.
Jenica Bell – Ache
“Ache” by singer-songwriter Jenica Bell is a wipe away the stream of tears from your face, elegant piano ballad. In addition, there are solemn strings that bring the entire sentimentality of the song together.
Nocean Beach – Weak Nights
“Weak Nights” by indie pop artist Nocean Beach is accented by xylophonic synth effects. In addition, there’s a skipping bass beat underneath it all that keeps the tempo.
VICTXRIA – Could’ve Been
“Could’ve Been” by VICTXRIA is led by an emphatic drum beat as part of its bass-heavy melody. In addition, the vocals echo and end up multiplying in an auto-tuned filter.
Of Love And Lust – Spot (Fitz Remix)
The “Fitz Remix” of “Spot” by Of Love And Lust features the bluesy drawl of the late John “Fitz” Burton. Altogether, this rendition is highlighted by minimalist bass pickin’ and an overall smooth atmosphere.
KAH – The Hive
All that singer-songwriter KAH needs to elevate the emotionality of her single, “The Hive,” is a solitary, poignant piano. In tandem with her exquisite vocals, “The Hive” creates a simple, yet soul stirring soundscape.
Cadenti – Bleed
“Bleed” by Cadenti dabbles in contrasting melodic styles from beginning to end. An understated guitar solo makes way for a methodical, skipping bass layer, followed up by a siren synth-laden chorus.
Jacob Chacko – Make It
“Make It,” by singer-songwriter Jacob Chacko is dominated by a jangly presence and cascading riffs. However, a pronounced, wailing guitar part leaps forth during a brief interlude not long after the two minute mark.
MP Grey – Mexican Sun
Written by MP Grey and sung by Rudiger, “Mexican Sun” begins with vapory chords before tumbling drums and twinkling xylophone arrive on the melodic scene. At the end of each chorus, a wiry guitar riff serves as a punctuating note.
