Here is a list of the top 10 underrated songs you should be listening to like, now.
“We Won’t” by Jaymes Young & Phoebe Ryan
Match made in heaven; the two voices complement each other ever so perfectly, giving off a unique and one-of-a-kind vibe. The poignant yet exquisite lyrics about letting love go will make you listen to this song on repeat.
“Aloha Ke Akua” by Nahko Bear (Medicine for the People)
Aloha Ke Akua means God is Love in Hawaiian. As beautiful as the title sounds, same goes for the song itself. The relaxing aura this song builds throughout its ten minute span is definitely worth giving a shot.
“Sober” by Childish Gambino
Childish Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, is a well known comedian. But have you ever given his music a try? If not, try listening to this song. It’ll help you calm down and loosen up, and it’s great to listen to while taking breaks in between your studies!
“Stuck on the Puzzle” by Alex Turner
One word: Breathtaking.
“Forgiveness” by Made In Heights
Forgiveness by Made In Heights is a combination of an extremely soothing voice and an unconventional song style. It’s undeniably different and fresh and it’s guaranteed to make you obsessed for a while (happened to me).
“Irish Margaritas (RAC Mix)” by Harriet
When is a RAC mix NOT good? Imagine you’re staying home, cozy, cuddling under dim lights and feeling super relaxed (maybe near a fireplace, too). This song, Irish Margaritas, is the kind of song that would be playing in the background. Basically what I’m getting at is, listen to it now.
“Demon Dance” by Surfer Blood
With its catchy chorus and inspirational lyrics, Surfer Blood will get you hooked to its indie rock song, Demon Dance. You’ll find yourself humming the tunes, chanting the lyrics, and constantly replaying this video.
“California” by Rogue Wave
California: Charged with multiple emotions, yet soothing at the same time. Their spot-on lyrics with the underlying message of, “no matter the uncertainty out there, hope will always lead you somewhere”, Rogue Wave will not fail to mesmerize you.
“James Dean & Audrey Hepburn (Acoustic ver.)” by Sleeping With Sirens
Sleeping With Sirens is a well known rock band, usually with rather hardcore songs. However, their acoustic songs take a complete 180 degree turn, giving off somewhat of a sentimental feeling.
“Ocean” by Coasts
A perfect summer song, as well as a love song. Missing the hot and sunny months of July and August? Let Coasts take you away.
