Music can be a wonderful escape from reality, and musicians are the mastermind behind them. But sometimes, some artists fail to get the attention that they deserve. Their lack of recognition breaks our heart, and so we have compiled a list of musicians you need to listen to right now.
Mumford and sons
Ten years in the business. Talented musicians and notable awards. Despite all these, Mumford and Sons is severely underrated. They are probably not fishing for crowd approval, but they still deserve to be a nationwide sensation. So start with “Little lion man”, “The cave”, “I will wait” and “Hopeless wanderer.” We assure you, you will be astounded by their skills and talent.
Hippo campus stands out with catchy beats, beautiful lyrics and their innovative music videos. This American indie rock band has been around since 2013 and consists of 4 primary members. Try listening to “Bashful creatures”. If you do not have time for an entire EP, try “Golden”. You will see what we are talking about.
I don’t know how but they found me
Just as the name suggests, this American music duo is not overwhelmingly popular. But they are creative. They made this list because of their diverse sound, unconventional lyrics and of course, imaginative music videos. And if we have to suggest ONE song, we request you to listen to “No one likes the opening band.” Those lyrics cut deep.
Vancouver sleep clinic
VSC came into attention only in 2017, through their single “Someone to stay”. However, they have been around far longer than that. VSC stands out with their heart wrenching lyrics and soulful music- even though they might seem a little monotonous to some. Nonetheless, they do deserve the chance to stay on your playlist. So if you have the time and willingness to explore new music, listen to “Killing me to love you”, “Lung”, “Ayahuasca”.
Now this is a band you definitely haven’t heard of. They don’t even have a Wikipedia page! But Flower Face deserves more recognition purely because of the music that they make. The melody is soothing; melancholic- the lyrics are simple. However, the writing talent shines through every simple word. They are perfect for those long, nostalgic nights when you can’t help reminisce the past. We recommend listening to “Angela”, “Cloud Factories”, “Raphael” “Where the ocean meets the sky”. Disclaimer- please do not listen if you are prone to crying a lot. We refuse to be responsible for your tears.
This UK based indie rock band will show you how the sixties would be like at present. They got picked up by our radar because of youtube algorithm, and we will be forever grateful for that! Listen to “If you know that I’m lonely”, “brother”, “Not enough” and you will know why we’re so obsessed with fur. Their somewhat comic videos will be a bonus.
We all know Finneas, just not as him. This brilliant singer/songwriter is the older brother of current sensation Billie Eilish. He is the mastermind behind many of Billie’s acclaimed songs, including “Six feet under”, “I don’t wanna be you anymore” and “Bad guy”. However, Finneas himself is a brilliant artist, and you should listen to his original songs. We recommend listening to “break my heart again”, “I’m in love without you”, and “Life moves on”.
And there you have it, our list of musicians you must listen to. Give it a try, and let us know what you think about them!
