I have six brilliant indie tunes to share with you. It turns out that all the tracks feature strong female vocals. One of the standout tracks is ‘Love Like This’ by Wild Belle. Wild Belle’s Natalie Bergman is the lead singer that has a jazzy set of pipes. Her voice is chilling + beautiful. The tune begins with the lines “My heart’s on fire. You light me up + I can’t go down. You’re love is wild. You’re dangerous.” This song is dangerous. You will be entranced as soon as you hear Natalie’s voice. “I never knew a love like this.”
The next tune is ‘Out of It’ by Fallulah. Fallulah is going bat shit crazy in this tune. She is trapped inside her head, after a bad breakup. Fallulah turns her troubles into a catchy indie-pop tune. You will be singing along with her. “Oh it’s crazy. It’s crazy up in here. I’m inside my head. How do I get out of it?”
I found a really cool song last week by TOKiMONSTA + MNDR. The track is called ‘Go With It.’ MNDR’s voice sounds as beautiful as ever. She is singing pretty strong lyrics that really impress me. “Follow me, ’cause I’ve been here before. We’re just like family + I won’t screw you wrong…let it go…just go with it.” TOKiMONSTA is responsible for the music + the production of the tune. She did a wonderful job. “Just go with it.”
‘Fantasy’ by New York duo MS MR is a perfectly created tune. It oozes brilliance from the beginning to the end. The lead singer is stuck in her own ‘fantasy.’ She sings “How could you be what I wanna see, when my reality could never live up to the fantasy?” That is a powerful line + chorus. That is quite heartbreaking. I am absolutely in love with this tune.
AlunaGeorge is back with their new single ‘Attracting Flies.’ The song is comical. She is tired of hearing someone talk complete bullshit. She will politely listen, but “everything you exhale is attracting flies.” You will really enjoy this song. It will put a smile on your face.
One of my favorite tunes of the bunch is ‘Royals’ by Lorde. This song is creative. Her voice is what initially captivated me to the song, but it is the lyrics that kept me listening. Lorde begins with the line “I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh.” She was never made of money, “but every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom, blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room. We don’t care…we’ll never be royals.” She is content + happy with making her own money + living her life the way she wants to. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.
