Winter may have come, but these tracks are here to keep you warm. Running with glacial Indie-Pop and Folk, here are my top picks right now.
Check the playlist here.
ALL TVVINS – THANK YOU
We kick off with a fast-mover to get the blood going. Strong drums, crunchy bass, playful electrics.
Flor – WARM BLOOD
Cold sounds, warm words. A paradox of frosty synth and fiery love lyrics, this track pretty much nails the ‘Winter Heat’ image.
NO ROME, THE 1975 – NARCISSIST (FEAT. THE 1975)
A fun collab that dropped in autumn this year. No Rome features The 1975’s own Matt Healy and the duo bring a great energy to it.
VANCOUVER SLEEP CLINIC – SOMEONE TO STAY
Raw and vulnerable, this atmospheric winter ballad pursues love in the cold. Stranger Things vibes for those of you waiting on Series 3…
HONNE – GOOD TOGETHER
Smooth as you like, a smoky romance hit from electro-pop class act HONNE. Makes sense in December; new ends, new beginnings.
WHETHAN, HONNE – RADAR FT. HONNE
My second collab for you is another lively one from this autumn. Moves with a cool synth and a real bop – bang this at your winter parties.
THE 1975 – IT’S NOT LIVING IF IT’S NOT WITH YOU
Slightly into The 1975 right now. Won’t lie to you.
ALL THE LUCK IN THE WORLD – SETTLE
Simply a stunning winter song from a truly spellbinding Irish folk band. If you’re stuck for New Year’s resolutions, make one to check out everything this band release.
RACING GLACIERS – SOUTH
Our trek through the cold follows with a smart, diverse track from English Alt. band Racing Glaciers. Comes with a cracking brass section.
VALLIS ALPS – YOUNG
Sending you off with a wavy number from electro-duo Vallis Alps. The electro breeze and calm beat make this a perfect fit for downtime.
